The Land of the Sherpas
The Land of the Sherpas
Description
Back of the Book:

The Land of the Sherpas is about the farthest corner of Nepal inhabited by the cheerful and lovable Sherpas who are known for their Himalayan climbing expedition. The book, throwing light on the various aspects of the Sherpa culture also gives the readers a glimpse of what the author call 'the immensity of Asia'. Her magnificent photographs and perceptive essays in this book are reminiscent of her earlier book FORBIDDEN JOURNEY. Maillart has, through this marvellous book, carved out a niche for herself as one of the greatest travellers of the world.

About the Author:

ELLA MAILLART gained her taste for open air life and her first knowledge of mountain people sailing on the Lake of her native Geneva and skiing in the Alps. She once sailed for Switzerland in the Olympic games and four times represented her country in world skiing championships. On land her first expedition was when she crossed on foot the central range of the Caucasus. In the 1930's, with four chance-met Soviet scientists, she visited the highest valleys of the T'ien Shah mountains in Turkestan, on her way back visiting Tashkent and Samarkand.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
