Detailed Product Description

Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1991, 1st edition. Hardcover with Dust Jacket, Fine condition.

Two couples, experienced adventure travelers, go on ambling journey thru Himalayan countries, using all methods of travel, finding a place imbued with more meaning, reality than any they'd experienced.

* Winner of the first Barbara Savage Memorial Award 

* Stunning color photos of the journey 

* Look into the heart of the top of the world. 

This is the story of two young couples who embarked on a free-form journey through Tibet, Nepal, China, India and Pakistan. Their goal: to circumnavigate the Himalayas by bike, foot, truck by any means necessary, the slope of the world's greatest mountain range their only guide. Along the way they experienced a region steeped in ancient tradition but permanently altered by its confrontation with the 20th century; they discovered all that is exotic and mundane, funny and tragic, and beautiful and brutal about this vast territory. 

Jeremy Schmidt's humorous, evocative narrative recounts bureaucrats, knife-wielding Khampas, lamas-in-training, and mystics of every stripe. With stunning photographs by Patrick Morrow, Himalayan Passage reveals a place imbued with meaning and reality far beyond anything in the world below: the mysterious, turbulent Himalayas, the gates to God.
