In the 1960s, hundreds of thousands of young Westerners, inspired by Kerouac and the Beatles, blazed the 'hippie trail' overland from Istanbul to Kathmandu in search of enlightenment and a bit of cheap dope. This work retraces the path of the once well-worn 'hippie trail' from Turkey to Iran, Afghanistan to Pakistan, and from India to Nepal.
