The Lonely Planet travel writer explores the remote regions of Ladakh, Bhutan, Mongolia and the Tibetan heartlands.

"Wherein our narrator visits the ancient lands of the Tibetan realm and finds there many strange and wonderful aspects, including Karaoke bars, giant phalluses and bizarre phenomena such as: the wicked witch healing oracle, a high Lama encased in a statue, the dance of the day of judgement, a magical black hat and other things that fly in the face of reason; speaking of which, he also gets an earful from New Agers in India and survives interrogation by the Chinese police - for the Tibetan realm is a political hot potato and not a place for a writer to venture into lightly..."

Darkly funny, informative and inspired, Buckley's account of these amazing lands makes invaluable reading.
