This book is a tribute to the traders of Kathmandu Valley who braved bandits, snow drifts, ice falls and stubborn mules to discover for themselves both the mercantile potential and spiritual dimension of Tibet's mysterious capital. In this book Kesar Lall has brought together for the first time the most interesting travel accounts and experiences of some of these enterprising men, about whom so little is known until now.
