Review

'The most thumbed of all my books on Tibet. I might have had some trouble with the yak butter tea, but Buckley made everything else about Tibet wonderfully palatable. A must-read.' Michael Palin (who used this book on the road in Tibet when making the tv series 'Himalaya') 'This book will constitute an important reading material for our officials here but also for the those who consult our office on practical informations for the travels in Tibet.' Bureau du Tibet, Paris 'Michael Buckley has a most attractive, easy style, speaking (he seems to be speaking), as one traveller to another. He is never patronising or pompous, he does not pretend to know what he doesn't know, and he does not flaunt his knowledge; among writers of guidebooks, those are rare achievements... This book is undoubtedly the one I would recommend first for reading before a visit to Tibet. For a visit to central or western Tibet it may also be the best single book to take.' Tony Williams, travel co-ordinator, Australia Tibet Council 'The author has written an authoritative guidebook which gives one a genuine feel for the Tibet of today. It is rare to find a guidebook that addresses the situation with so much honesty, and yet this is exactly the sort of explanation a traveller to Tibet needs. I strongly recommend this guide.' Tibet Alive

From the Back Cover

Tibet has long captured the imagination of intrepid travellers.
Here, on the world's most elevated plateau, you can experience the timeless
rhythms of the ancient Tibetan civilization: monks chanting in dim prayer
halls lit by yak-butter lamps, fiery-eyed pilgrims wending their way around
sacred peaks, and hardy nomads herding their yaks.

The "Land of Snows" may be blurred by Chinese politics, but Michael
Buckley's Tibet gives you the practical advice necessary to sidestep
potential obstacles and explore this enigmatic country to the full. Let the
adventure begin!

*Tibetan people: their history and culture
*Golmud to Lhasa--the controversial new railway
*Plan your trip with 35 clear maps
*Gaze at Everest on a "star trek"
*Explore the Kham and Amdo regions without travel permits
*Essential phrases in Tibetan and Chinese, with hand gestures
