Tibet

The Secret Continent

Book - 2002
Rate this:
Forty years ago Tibet was a closed, forbidden and mysterious continent, one that only a handful of foreigners had been able to visit. Michel Peissel has dedicated all those years to unlocking the secrets of this continent within Asia. He has led 26 expeditions to survey the far flung and often forbidden reaches of this magical realm, covering the length and breadth of Greater Tibet. In 1964, he 'discovered' the minute kingdom of Mustang and, more recently, in 1994 he led an expedition to find the source of the Mekong River. Michel Peissel is one of the great explorers of our time and in this book he brings to life the geographical, spiritual and intellectual heart of Tibet through first-hand accounts of his travels.
