With the keen insight of a scholar and the warmth of a seasoned traveller, David Snellgrove re-creates the way of life in isolated villages of a land that has changed little for hundreds of years. During a seven-month trek into the remote Tibetan-speaking regions of Nepal, the author and his Sherpa guide journeyed over a thousand miles, from the lowland plains along the border with India, over the high mountain passes of Dolpo, and across Mustang, finally descending again in to the Kathmandu Valley. Along the way they encountered monks and lamas, yak-herders and villagers, temples and shrines, and witnessed esoteric religious rituals and practices in the Buddhist monasteries, which are the centers of culture in these secluded regions. Thanks to Professor Snellgrove's vast knowledge of Buddhism and Himalayan culture, the book is a valuable resource for scholars and students as well as a colorful travelogue.
