Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Great Plateau: Being an Account of Exploration in Central Tibet, 1903, and of the Gartok Expedition, 1904-1905 In the following pages I have endeavoured to lay before the reader an account of two journeys undertaken in Tibet, in districts situated many hundreds of miles apart and under diametrically opposite conditions. The first expedition penetrated into the interior of the uninhabited and barren regions of the Northern Desert at a time when Tibet was rigidly closed to foreigners. The second led through the rich and thickly populated valleys of the Brahmaputra, and was made with the cognisance and permission of the Lhasa Government, though only rendered possible by the notable success of Sir Francis Younghusband s Mission. The natural obstacles inseparable from exploration in Tibet are so varied and numerous, that but little progress would be made were it not for the aid given by those who are interested in travel and who are willing to render every assistance in their power. I therefore take this opportunity of tendering my thanks to all who have contributed to the success of the journeys here described, and more particularly to Colonel St. G. Gore, R.E., Mr. J. Eccles, and the Officers of the Survey of India; Major M. Ray, D.S.O., Intelligence Branch; and Sir Clements Markham, K.C.B., and the Council of the Royal Geographical Society.
