It is possible to drive to the base of Mt Everest -- I have so driven over one hundred times while leading the international team that set aside this mountain and the six million acres around as a national park. But what might happen on the way? This book tells you how to deal with those surprises.

Broken crank case?
Avalanche overwhelming your car?
What to do if you hit a yak?

And, once you leave the Everest area, what is it like to drive through the rest of the Himalaya ... from India to Afghanistan? This book has stories about that also.

And, if the stories are hard to believe, the photographs in the book add stark proof that you will be having a splendid adventure.

The book is dedicated to Dan Terry -- one of the truly great Himalayan drivers -- who was brutally and tragically assassinated by terrorists while leading a medical team up out of a ford in a river just south of the magnificent Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan.

About the Author

Daniel C. Taylor has traveled the 2,500 mile breadth of the Himalaya for 60 years -- by Volkwagon, Land Cruiser, Truck, Yak, Donkey, Helicopter, and thousands of miles by foot.

Some of the time he was looking (successfully) for the scientific explanation for the Yeti. Other times he was leading teams establishing seven national parks. Other times, he was exploring valleys.

When driving, many surprises happened. This book tells some of those tales. His other books tell tales of those other adventures.

For his work he was knighted by the King of Nepal, made an Honorary Professor of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and decorated with the Order of the Golden Arc by Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands. He lives in West Virginia -- on top of that state's highest mountain in a house he built himself.
