Handbook of the Punjab,Kashmir & Upper Sindh
This volume is intended to guide the traveller to and through a great part of Rajputana, and those northern provinces of India, which are directly, or indirectly, ruled by the Lieutenant-Governor of the Panjab. They cover • an area several thousand miles greater than that of Germany. No territory in the world of equal extent possesses so great a variety of scenery, beginning from the vast plains around Delhi, and bordering the Five Rivers, and ending with the towering heights of the abode of snow, where for example the Nanga Parwat, one of the highest mountains known to man, rises to an altitude of 26,629 ft. or more.
