Tibet, 3rd (Bradt Travel Guide Tibet) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exploring ethnic Tibet independently is a challenge - the ‘land of snows possesses some of the wildest and roughest road routes in high Asia. Motoring, mountain-biking and trekking options are all covered in this new edition. Political and cultural issues make Tibet a sensitive destination for Westerners, so Michael Buckley's authoritative advice includes guidelines on cultural etiquette, local customs, and travelling with minimum impact on Tibet's culture and environment. The chapter on language includes a section covering Tibetan script.

Synopsis:

About the Author

Michael Buckley has travelled widely in Tibet, China, central Asia and the Himalaya, visiting many Tibetan enclaves.

For Bradt, he has also authored Shangri-La: A Travel Guide to the Himalayan Dream - a concept guidebook that covers contenders for the Shangri-La crown across the Himalayan range.
