Amazing travelogue

This is an amazing travelogue. A story of escape from a POW camp. This Austrian/ German mountaineer had but one wish - to enter Tibet and see the "Forbidden City". Against all odds and facing the harshest of weathers and harshest of terrains the author and his friend dodge the friendly but not so open Tibetians and reach the heart of Tibet and find a place in the hearts of the Tibetians !
A book that makes you want to go and see Lhasa, Tibet and the Potala Palace !!

journey of a lifetime

the book is so different from the movie! a journey that one can only dream of. hats off to late Mr. Harrer for providing the world with the view of a place that we might never see the way it used to be. Hope good sense prevails on all sides and the people of Tibet finally get to see the Lhasa of their dreams!

The novel is both, a great travelogue and an emotional recollections of Heinrich Harrer's encounter with the Tibetan cultures and its million followers. Although all that now exists as a testimony to the author's adventures in ...
