Tibet has ever fascinated the imagination of mankind. High as the country is raised above the ordinary dwelling lands of the human race, higher still are the mountain masses that fence it off from neighbouring countries. To the natural difficulties of entering Tibet and of travelling in its bleak uplands has been added the spirit of seclusion which has moved its government to keep foreigners out of their sacred Buddhist land.
The book gives complete account of the Boundaries, areas, populations, physical divisions, trade routes, etc. Early history has also been given with details about treatise, conventions and famous agreements.
