Back of the Book:

This simple, clear guide to colloquial Tibetan is valuable for travellers in Tibet, the northern regions of Nepal and India, and all Himalayan areas where Tibetan is understood. The emphasis is on basic travel essentials–words and phrases useful in bargaining, eating, finding lodging and transportation, asking directions and making simple conversation. Special sections for travel in Tibetan regions include vocabulary for trekking, village life, and the Buddhism that is an important part of Tibetan culture. There is also a handy lost of short phrases common in everyday speech, and a "stream lined" list of ten basic phrases which can take you surprisingly far. Whether you travel in Tibet itself or in areas inhabited by Tibetan speaking people, you'll find this phrasebook you key to communication-and to making friends wherever you go.
