    This book I expected uite a lot But somehow is not that appealing Like all the types of books I read this also the story of another exploration in remote areas of the then South Eastern Tibet in the early 1900s But unlike many others this is mere of a geographical exploration and less of literary marvel The nature flora and fauna are all dealt merely from an analytical geographer's standpoint and often are too lengthy Description of the source and search for the source of the river is presented lucidly with nice literary touch There reader can have a dreamy vision of a uncharted land the snow clad mountains the deep river gorge and a river coming out of glaciers
