I thiught I'd written a review of this book before, but it seems to have disappeared. I absolutely loved this memoir of Trish Nicholson's hike through the highlands and mountains of Bhutan. She introduces us to a world most of us will never see and to people whose grace and charm have everything to do with their wonderful culture, uncontaminated as it was then by the modern 'civilised' world. I became so involved in the narrative and her experiences, I didn't realise until quite some way through the book that it is set in the early eighties. This is a testament to the freshness of her prose and immediacy of her descriptions and stories. A lovely, lovely memoir that makes me long to do this trip myself.

An excellent book describing an intrepid journey into breath-taking and hazardous mountains, with intriguing companions. The author has a wonderful gift for descriptive writing that will have the reader alongside her all the way, sharing the pleasures and enduring the dangers of precipitous cliffs and dangerous animals. Her understanding of the Bhutan culture and its native language gives yet another dimension to the narrative. This is not merely a travelogue, here there is adventure and excitement.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Your Mental Peregrinations 20 Aug. 2015
By Tonya M. Cannariato - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It is an adjustment for an American English reader to get used to some of the alternate spellings and phraseology, but in a way, it also highlighted the complete dislocation into a foreign land. Just getting into Bhutan, which is landlocked in the uncomfortable junction between India and China, perched on the teeth of the Himalayas, could be deterrent enough to the faint of heart. The travel restrictions complicate the journey, and limit your options further. But the potential for trekking through high mountain passes, some of which are also included in pictures, really fired up my imagination.

Nicholson’s style is not dissimilar from Riding the Iron Rooster by Paul Therous or the Fosters’ Forbidden Journey: The Life of Alexandra David Neel. Her use of language was right up my alley–descriptive and lyrical by turns. I don’t know that getting to Bhutan will actually ever happen for me, but based on the detailed descriptions Nicholson provided in this easy-to-read travelogue, I know some of what I’m missing. I would highly recommend this short introduction to a completely foreign locale to anyone interested in adventure travels, the Himalayas, or Asian cultures. There are enough distinctions in this country, including pictures of local garb, that it’s worth acquainting yourself with what she has painstakingly outlined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly inspiring! 28 Aug. 2015
By Nora V. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In her travels, Trish Nicholson has crossed the Tibetan Plateau, walked on the side of Mount Everest, and around the Annapurna range in Nepal, but it is to Bhutan she takes us, in her most recent book, Journey in Bhutan: Himalayan Trek in the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon.
Amazed by the outstanding Himalayan landscape, Nicholson also took time to meet the people, and through a series of very expressive photographs, she lets them ‘talk’ in their own words in the pages of her book.

Their customs, their everyday problems, their clothes and their food are all reflected here, along with the author’s lively anecdotes that make the readers feel like adventurous travelers going by her side through the rough paths of the Himalayas. This is a place of unique beauty, amazing constructions, and people who are kind enough to warm the heart of all travelers during their journey to this mystical part of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitch a ride on Trish's Backpack 17 Aug. 2015
By S. C. Uden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Trish Nicholsons’s Journey in Bhutan is a delicacy to be savoured. Right from her landing at Delhi airport where “the heat felt like a hot wet flannel slapped onto my face”, through chance encounters with wandering yaks, hair raising near misses in minibuses, clambering on all fours up the side of mountains then enjoying the wonder and joy of the view from the tops; Trish Nicholson shares it all with her reader as though they were the mascot attached to her backpack. And then just when you are feeling really disappointed that the whole experience is over, there are a few little treats at the end; just like finding some hidden extras at the bottom of your Christmas stocking. But there is so very much more in this book than can be encapsulated in a paragraph. If you are reading this, I can only recommend that you read Journey in Bhutan and find that out for yourself!
