About the author

Sven Hedin

Sven Hedin’s journey through the Himalayas was on the most hazardous but at the same time most fascinating exploration of his time. His three- volume reportage of the journey remains a classic of travel writing to this day. Besides writing, Hedin had meticulously drawn pictures of what he saw and encountered during his journey to Tibet, which again are classic works of art. This publication contains the entire travelogue of Hedin. With an entourage of helpers, Hedin set out to his destination-Lhasa. He began, interestingly, form India. From Simla to Leh to Lhasa the caravan journeyed through the inhospitable Himalayan track and reached the destinations facing heavy, often near-fatal, odds. A peep in to Nepal, the sight to picturesque Manasarovar, the holy Lamas in caves and monasteries. The search for the sources of Indus and Brahmaputra –the mosaic is arrestingly charming. A gem of a travelogue, Trans-Himalaya is sheer delight to read, and contains a mine of information.
