'Himalayan Pilgrimage' tells of a seven months' journey which the author made through the remote Tibetan regions of Western Nepal. Travelling everywhere on foot with his Sherpa assistant, Dr. Snellgrove covered more than a thousand miles of mountainous country and crossed some fifteen major passes of between seventeen- and twenty-thousand feet. The purpose of the journey was to learn of the different religions and people and to study in particular the types of Tibetan religion practiced in those remote lands, through some of which very few foreigners have passed, then or to the present day. The author, well known for his Buddhist studies and for his affection for Tibetan people, provides a lively and sympathetic account of the lives of these cheerful people, who still live and think much as our own ancestors lived and thought many hundreds of years ago.
