overview - Road to Katmandu
This is a travel classic--the story of Patrick Marnham's pilgrimage from Turkey to Nepal in 1968. He traveled over three thousand miles, passing through Ankara to Ararat, Tehran and Mashad, Herat, Kandahar and Kabul, Peshawar, Lahore and Varanasi before finally reaching Katmandu. His journey is a kaleidoscopic blend of tortuous train journeys and lethal truck drives; wild deserts, mountains and isolated villages. At heart this is the story of a generation that was escaping from the routine of conventional life and of how it found or lost its way. It provides an alluring insight into the nature of the "hippie trail" and of those who forged it, before cheap air travel shrank the world.
