Opis: Beyond the Himalayas - Geddie John
Excerpt from Beyond the Himalayas: A Story of Travel and Adventure in the Wilds of Thibet
The problem of opening up an overland route from the Ganges to the Yang-tze - a subject which has long piqued and baffled the of their seniors-ought to have some attraction for the imagination of young people, if, as formerly, they take delight in wandering among strange and wild scenes, and in encountering manifold obstacles and dangers. Many have sought of late years to climb over the division-wall between the two crowded Eastern worlds of India and China, - the trader, to find a new market for his wares; the explorer, in search of a whole nest of "Chinese puzzles" regarding the courses of giant rivers and mountain chains; and the missionary, in pursuit of his self-denying labours. Only at one point, however, and by a roundabout way, has the journey been accomplished.
