Detailed Product Description
Vienna, 1954, 1st edition. In German. 210 pp, 32 B&W and 4 color photos, 3 map sketches in the appendix; equipment list; maps on endpapers. In German. Pioneer tour through Muktinath, Mustang, Jumla, Talkot and Dolpo. [Yakushi T70a.] Herbert Tichy, accompanied by four Sherpas, crossed the west of Nepal to visit, among other places, Mustang and Dolpo, two areas strongly influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.

In doing so, he also succeeded in climbing three mountains. Tichy, however, mainly tells about the lives of people in these Nepalese-Tibetan border regions. One of the few travel guides to Western Nepal. Original tan cloth hardcover with gold lettering; chipped dust jacket; book is Near Fine.

 
Tichy was an itinerent scholar with a doctorate in geology, but the bulk of his work was in geography. He traveled to the Himalaya many times, as well as to other remote regions of the world (Africa, Tibet, China, Alaska), usually alone with one or two locals. Thus he learned intimate details of local cultures and traditions. He became lifelong friends with many of the local people that joined him during his travels. This type of casual but intimate experience is evident in his writing.
