4.0/5 Goodreads

In 1981 Vikram Seth hitchhiked through Sinkiang and Tibet to Nepal: from Heaven Lake to the Himalayas. By breaking free from the reliable routes of organised travel, he transformed his journey into an unusual, intriguing voyage of exploration through one of the least-known areas of the world.

"Delightfully written and observed, a worthy successor to the accounts of the Victorian explorers and missionaries who tried to reach Lhasa nearly a century ago... hard to put down" - BBC Radio 4
"Utterly convincing and, unlike other recent accounts of Tibet, revealing. . . Were there a prize for the most engaging and unexpected travel book of the year, Vikram Seth should get it" - Sunday Telegraph
