Dwyer, John, High Road To Tibet: Travels China, Tibet, Nepal and India (Cork: The Author, 2009).

The book describes, in vivid detail, the adventures and characters the author encountered as he traveled through China, Tibet, Nepal and India. Amongst the stories in the book, he describes passing through the sunken gorges of the Yangtze river, drinking snake blood in China, being smuggled into Tibet illegally, watching mysterious ceremonies in Buddhist temples, reaching the breathless highs of Mount Everest Base Camp, climbing amongst the awe-inspiring Himalayas in Nepal, and watching the dead being burned on the banks of the Ganges River in India.
