    FREE READ Ò From Heaven Lake Travels Through Sinkiang and Tibet From Heaven Lake Travels Through Sinkiang and TibetThis fairly short account started me thinking about what makes a good travel book The author was studying in China and finagled permission to travel home to India via Tibet He comes across as curious observant and resourceful and his account is well written but somehow the book and trip were disappointing The author’s time in Tibet was relatively brief and involved only limited interaction with anyone besides the Tibetan truck driver who took him most of the way I kept thinking it would make a better magazine article than a book“Nevertheless by mid morning the river is littered with trucks wallowing like hippopotami in various stages
