Whether relating her 'non-heroic' encounters with yaks, Tibetan mastiffs, snow leopards and earthquakes, or pondering on the vagaries of electricity, development and water supply, or delving into the mysteries of the tika, Buddhist art or the legend of Shangri-La itself, she writes with humour, warmth and understanding about this 'small mountainous country' which is home to such a wealth of peoples, cultures and lifestyles.

Comment: Last week, just before Christmas, I received the very beautiful book The Great Himalayan Trail I ordered. It took much longer than the 10 days you mentioned in your mail, but I was expecting that so no problem at all. Really a beautiful book, inspiring me to come back to Nepal for the 9th time :) ! Best regards and pheri betaunla from Amsterdam,
