Book Description

About the Book
Whilst working and studying for a master's degree at Nepal's Tribhuvan University, Maximillian travelled to some of the furthest and least known corners of Nepal, from the Far West Himalayas and old Tibetan trade routes to the politically charged plains of southern Nepal. In this collection of travels, we see another side to Nepal than just tales of Everest, this is the history and society of a country often misunderstood.

This journey takes us from the largest glacial lake in the country to lunch with shamans and from conversations with failed Gurkha recruits to encounters with tigers and tourists. Along the journey, Maximillian discusses Nepali history, politics, development, the post-earthquake reconstruction and much more.

Maximillian Mørch takes us on an entertaining journey to Nepal's most far-flung corners, engaging with the people and sharing some hair-raising experiences in these remote regions. Interwoven with history, local knowledge and development insights, these adventures reveal much about life in Nepal's more obscure and distant destinations. A 'must read for off-the-beaten-track trekkers less intrepid travellers will enjoy it from the comfort of their armchair.
