The myth, mystery and mystical attributes of the Great Himalaya, home to the Gods and the Rishis of the hoary Indian past, has for thousands of years attracted travellers from all over the world, all in search of something that was not quite tangible but still whet their appetite for adventure. Mountain Travelogues is an amazing panorama of travel writing that spans the vast and deeply revered Himalayas rich in myth, folklore, tradition and faith from its Northern extremity of Ladakh to Nepal, Sikkim and Bhutan. It highlights the unique role that religious faith and tradition played in the Himalayan past and the onslaught of modernity that has all but subsumed the old world. It goes beyond the Himalayas to the old forbidden world of Tibet with its esoteric Tantric rites of worship and communion with the dead. In a marked shift of perspective it takes us to the post 1950 Tibet, a land that became a victim of the politics of the time.
