Up there, in the Himalayas

A the top of the World.
A the top of the World.

By Nora Vasconcelos

In her travels, Trish Nicholson has crossed the Tibetan Plateau, walked on the side of Mount Everest, and around the Annapurna range in Nepal, but it is to Bhutan she takes us, in her most recent book, Journey in Bhutan: Himalayan Trek in the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon.*

Amazed by the outstanding Himalayan landscape, Nicholson also took time to meet the people, and through a series of very expressive photographs, she lets them ‘talk’ in their own words in the pages of her book.

Their customs, their everyday problems, their clothes and their food are all reflected here, along with the author’s lively anecdotes that make the readers feel like adventurous travelers going by her side through the rough paths of the Himalayas. This is a place of unique beauty, amazing constructions, and people who are kind enough to warm the heart of all travelers during their journey to this mystical part of the world.
