Review

‘Like the voyage of the Kon-Tiki, it deserves to take its place among the few great travel stories of our own times’
The Times

‘Few adventureres in this century have had the combined luck and hardihood to return with such news as this. Fewer still have rendered it so powerfully unadorned.’
Times Literary Supplement

From the Back Cover

Heinrich Harrer, already a famous mountaineer and Olympic ski champion, was caught by the outbreak of the Second World War while climbing in the Himalayas. Being an Austrian, he was interned in India. By an almost super-human effort, and on his third attempt, he succeeded in escaping into Tibet.

After a series of remarkable experiences in a country never before crossed by a Westerner, he reached the forbidden city of Lhasa. He stayed there for seven years, learned the language and acquired a greater understanding of Tibet and Tibetans than a Westerner had ever before achieved. He became friend and tutor to the young Dalai Lama and finally accompanied him into India when he was put to flight by the Red Chinese invasion.

'Seven Years in Tibet', Heinrich Harrer's classic account of his amazing escape into Tibet during the Second World War, has been made into a major motion picture from Mandalay Entertainment, directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud and starring Brad Pitt and David Thewlis.
