Abstract:

In the early spring of 1960, Dr. Jest undertook a three-week circumambulation of the isolated Himalayan Dolpo Valley in northwest Nepal, visiting with Tibetans and experiencing the area's temples, shrines, and sacred mountains. His companion Karma, an elderly nomad from Western Tibet and a gifted storyteller, punctuated the journey with traditional tales and his own reflections. Perfect for the armchair traveler, this journal conveys the richness of the Tibetan worldview in ways not readily accessible to outsiders.
