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.
