Hi guys,

I'm planning to organise a trip to northern India ( Kashmir & Jumma ) with friend of mine. I use to travel with Lonely Planet book guides but I no longer find these useful. Currently I use for my trips, Bradt travel guides but the don't produce any India books. Any suggestion for different book guides?

I've never been to India so don't know how accurate these guides are, but we use the Michelin Green Guide and the DK Eye Witness Guides on nearly every trip and I do know they have India guides. You might look at them.

You haven't filled out your Profile Page so I don't know where you live, but most places have a library where you could look at these guides and see if they would suit you.

BTW, it would be a good idea to fill out your Profile Page here on TravellersPoint. We usually check it before we answer questions because we need to know where you are from (or your passport citizenship) and some of the things you enjoy doing when you travel. You will get much better answers to your questions if you fill out the Profile Page. Just a thought.

Good luck and enjoy your trip.

Bradt has a guide, "Ladakh, Jammu and the Kashmir Valley," published Nov. 5, 2019.

If you're looking for information about places to visit the old printed guides remain useful. There also is a wealth of information online. But if you're looking for information about accommodations and restaurants, that's a different matter. Any printed information about those is likely to be dated.
