About this book
The 40th anniversary edition of the classic spiritual travelogue by one of Tibet's best known explorers.
Lama Anagarika Govinda was among the last to journey through Tibet before its invasion by the Chinese. This account is a story of exploration and discovery. It tells of terrible journeys, of men masked against the sun (riding through regions with their feet frozen), and of welcoming fog-girt monasteries lit by butter lamps at the journey's end.
