Tales of the Turquoise is put together from day-to-day notes of events taken during a twenty day pilgrimage of many of the major temples,. shrines and sacred mountains of the Dolpo region of north-west Nepal. The author's companion, Karma, a nomad from Western Tibet, revealed himself to be an excellent story teller with a sense of humour. The journey was punctuated by Karma's stories which rapidly became an indispensible part ?of the day's itinerary, stories which responded to the author's eagerness to know more about those aspects of the Tibetan culture which are not revealed in more casual contacts.
