Whilst working and studying for a master?s degree at Nepal?s Tribhuvan University, Maximillian travelled to some of the furthest
and least known corners of Nepal, from the Far West Himalayas and old Tibetan trade routes to the politically charged plains of southern Nepal. In this collection of travels, we see another side to Nepal than just tales of Everest, this is the history and society of a country often misunderstood.
This journey takes us from the largest glacial lake in the country to lunch with shamans and from conversations with failed Gurkha recruits to encounters with tigers and tourists. Along the journey, Maximillian discusses Nepali history, politics, development, the post-earthquake reconstruction and much more.
Maximillian is a journalist and researcher who spent three years studying in Nepal, who specialises in writing and researching political, developmental and human rights issues in South and South East Asia.
