One of the most captivating stories of exploration and discovery in recent memory, "The Heart of the World" is an extraordinary journey to one of the wildest and most inaccessible places on Earth--and a pilgrimage to the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist faith.
The Heart of the World recounts an extraordinary journey into one of the most inaccessible places on earth, and a pilgrimage to the heart of Tibetan Buddhism. Tibetan prophecies proclaim that the greatest of beyul, or mystical sanctuaries, lies at the eastern edge of the Himalayas, veiled by a colossal waterfall in the forbidding Tsangpo gorge. After years of investigation, world-class climber and Buddhist scholar Ian Baker and his National GeographicÂ–sponsored team made worldwide news by finding a magnificent 108-foot-high waterfallÂ—the legendary grail of both Western explorers and Tibetan pilgrims.
