Hitch-hiking, walking, slogging through rivers and across leech-ridden hills, Vikram Seth traveled through Sinkiang and Tibet to Nepal: From Heaven Lake to the Himalayas.
By breaking away from the reliable routes of organized travel, he transformed his journey into an unusual and intriguing exploration of one of the world's least known area.
