An Explorer's Adventures IN TIBET
- A. Henry Savage Landor


 
Perhaps the first adventure travel not sponsor by a king or government, ever...
A. H. Savage Landor headed North from Bombay, India into uncharted territory to explore the magnificent mountains and glacial rivers of Tibet, trying to reach the Province of Lhassa deep into the forbidden land without the benefit of maps, or previous knowledge of history or local customs.
Accompanied by a few coolies, hired locally, carrying the best photographic, and scientific equipment money could buy, he went off onto what was to be the adventure of a lifetime. He battled with gangs of trail robbers, exchanged gunfire with the Tibetans and fell prisoner of the local war lords, all while charting and mapping the territory, taking photographs and recording scientific observations.
Over one hundred years have passed since this epic took place, and this book was last published in 1910. A must read for adventure lovers and Tibet history buffs
