Little explored and virtually inaccessible, the Tsangpo Gorge in S.E. Tibet is the world's deepest gorge. Through it twists the Yarlong Tsangpo, Tibet's great river, emerging far below on the plains of India. This is the story of its exploration and an account of the rich plant and animal life found there. Plant hunter Frank Kingdon Ward first went there in 1926, this is a much expanded edition of his original account with completely new material added. Fantastic book.
