Additional Physical Format: Online version: Kharkwal, S.C., Physico-cultural environment and development in U.P. Himalaya. Kotdwara, Garhwal: Nutan Publications. This book is concerned with human-environment relations in the Himalaya.

Pant Institute of Himalayan Environment & Development. ISBN:. The Eastern Himalaya—land of Gods, of ancient mountain kingdoms, of icy peaks and alpine meadows—is like no other place on Earth. The life and landscapes of the region are as diverse, spectacular and fragile as the mountains themselves.

Even today, these mountains hold many mysteries: unnamed species, primeval cultures and the promise of magical cures to heal all of humanity.For the last half-century, scholarship on human-environment relations in the Himalaya has focused on two broad areas.
