Description About The Author:- Sven Hedin's journey through the Himalayas was on of the most hazardous but at the same time most fascinating exploration of his time. His three-volume reportage of the journey remains a classic of travel writing to this day. Besides writing, Hedin had meticulously drawn pictures of what he saw and encountered during his journey to Tibet, which again are classic works of art. This publication contains the entire travelogue of Hedin. With an entourage of helpers, Hedin set out to his destination-Lhasa. He began interestingly, from India. From Simla to Leh to Lhasa the caravan journeyed through the inhospitable Himalayan track and reached the destinations in to Nepal, the sight to picturesque Mansarovar, the holy Lamas in caves and monasteries, the search for the sources of Indus and Brahmaputra- the mosaic is arrestingly charming. A gem of a travelogue, Trans-Himalaya is sheer delight to read, and contains a mine of information.Contents:- VOLUME 2: CHAPTER XXXV • IMMURED MONKS • CHAPTER XXXVI • OVER THE CHANG-LA-POD-LA • CHAPTER XXXVII • TARGO-GANGRI AND THE SHURU-TSO • CHAPTER XXXVIII • TO THE OUTLET OF THE CHAKTAK-TSANGPO IN THE BRAHMA-PUTRA • CHAPTER XXXIX • MUHAMED ISA'S DEATH • CHAPTER XL • ALONG BYWAYS TO TRADUM • CHAPTER XLI • A PEEP INTO NEPAL • CHAPTER XLII • IN SEARCH OF THE SOURCE OF THE BRAHMAPUTRA • CHAPTER XLIII • THE SOURCE OF THE SACRED RIVER- A DEPARTURE • CHAPTER XLIV • A NIGHT ON MANASAROWAR • CHAPTER XLV • MORE LAKE VOYAGES • CHAPTER XLVI • A STORMY VOYAGE OVER THE HOLY LAKE • CHAPTER XLVII • ON THE ROOF OF THE GOSSUL MONASTERY • CHAPTER XLVIII • OUR LAST DAYS ON TSO-MAVANG • CHAPTER XLIX • ADVENTURES ON LANGAK-TSO • CHAPTER L • THE SOURCE OF THE SUTLEJ • CHAPTER LI • A PILGRIMAGE ROUND KANG-RINPOCHE • CHAPTER LII • OM MANI PADME HUM • CHAPTER LIII • THE DISCOVERY OF THE SOURCE OF THE INDUS • CHAPTER LIV • A RESOLUTION • CHAPTER LV • A NEW CHAPTER • CHAPTER LVI • UP TO THE HEIGHTS OF DAPSANG • CHAPTER LVII • ON THE ROOF OF THE WORLD • CHAPTER LVIII • FORTY DEGREES BELOW ZERO • CHAPTER LIX • IN THE SNOW • CHAPTER LX • DEATH OF THE LAST VERERAN • CHAPTER LXI • THIRTY DAYS OF STORM • CHAPTER LXII • ADVENTURES OF OURSELVES AND PUPPY IN NAGTRONG • CHAPTER LXIII • THROUGH THE HIGHLANDS OF BONGBA • CHAPTER LXIV • TSONGPUN TASHI • CHAPTER LXV • BUPTSANGPO, ONE OF THE LARGEST RIVERS OF THE HEART OF TIBET • CHAPTER LXVI • IN THE ROBBERS' PARADISE • CHAPTER LXVII • APRIL, 24 • CHAPTER LXVIII • HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR OF SAKA • CHAPTER LXIX • KAMBA TSENAM, FATHER OF THE ROBBERS • CHAPTER LXX • THE SEVENTH CROSSING OF THE TRANS-HIMALAYA-TO THE HEAVEN LAKE OF THE THRONE MOUNTAIN • CHAPTER LXXI • ANOTHER JOURNEY ACROSS THE WHITE PATCH • CHAPTER LXXII • THE LAST DAYS IN UNKNOWN COUNTRY • CHAPTER LXXIII • THE TRANS-HIMALAYA • CHAPTER LXXIV • SIMLA • INDEX •About The Book:- "My Long Journey Backwards And Forward Over The Trans-Himalaya Cannot Be Regarded As More That A Cursory And Defective Reconnaissance Of A Country Hitherto Unknown. It Is Easier To Go To Lhasa With A Force Armed To The Teeth, And Shoot Down The Tibetans Like Pheasants If They Stand In The Way, Than To Cross Tibet In All Direction For Two Long Years With Four Governments And All The Authorities Of The Land As Opponents, Twelve Poor Ladakis As Companions, And Not A Single Man As Escort. It Is No Merit Of Mine That I Was Long Able To Maintain A Position Which From The First Seemed Untenable. The Same Lucky Star Looked Down, As Often Before, On My Lonely Course Through Vast Asia, Since I First Took Up My Pilgrim Staff. "Go, Then, Out Into The World Thou Ringing And Sonorous Name For One Of The World'S Mightiest Mountain Systems, And Find Thy Way Into Geograp Hical Text-Books And Remind Children In The Schools Of The Snow-Crowned Summits On The Roof Of The World, Among Which The Monsoon Storms Have Sung Their Deafening Chorus Since The Beginning. As Long As I Live, My Proudest Memories-Like Royal Eagles, Will Soar Round The Cold Desolate Crags Of The Trans-Himalaya.", About The Author:- Sven Hedin'S Journey Through The Himalayas Was On Of The Most Hazardous But At The Same Time Most Fascinating Exploration Of His Time.
