Adventure In Zanskar By Author Amy Edelstein

As a Baby Boomer Travel, Health & Wellness Blogger and avid reader, I’ve included a 📖 book review segment to my blog. My most recent read is the featured author’s latest publication called …

🥾 Adventure In Zanskar. 🥾

I received a request in my 📧 email inbox recently from the author, asking if I would be interested in reading and reviewing her new 📘 book.

I had taken part in a silent revelation & self realization 🙏 meditation course, with the {ISHA Foundation of India}, a few years back.  Isha Foundation is a volunteer-run organization bringing; physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing for everyone.

As well, during our travels in India, we did attend the {ISHA Centre} located in the southern part of the country, near the; City of Coimbatore.

So, I was delighted to have the opportunity to read and to offer a personal review of this inspiring publication from the book’s author – Amy Edelstein.

Adventure In Zanskar – A Solo 500 Kilometer Journey

Adventure In Zanskar Valley

Until reading this book, I had no idea or had ever heard of Zanskar. Even after having traveled extensively throughout other parts of India. I was amazed to read about this incredible and for the most part, still remote and unspoiled part of the world.

Amy’s book takes you back to 1983, when she embarked on a solo spiritual, enlightenment journey through the highest valley in the world. This is her personal autobiographical record of her; 500 kilometer trek and experiences along the way.

Women of Zanskar

At such a young age and after taking part in numerous meditative and spiritual awareness studies and retreats, she embarked on this incredible journey.

A harrowing solo trek, facing numerous challenges and heart warming rewards in the process.

Having the opportunity to mix and interact with the people and their customs in this unspoiled region of the world, was a life changing experience for her.

It is so refreshing to read about such friendly and warm people, sticking to their customs and way of life, without being influenced dramatically from the western world.

Following along on Amy’s journey, sharing her personal revelations experienced along the way, was such a pleasure to read.
