The Tea Horse Road Trek
A big welcome to all.
This site has been constructed to provide a forum by which to communicate on the upcoming "Tea Horse Road Trek". From May of 06 until late autumn myself and Khampa Caravan will be on the road following this ancient trade route which curves through the Himalayas. A voyage of 2350 kms through the Himalayas which have enthralled and beckoned me back time and again. With the passion and local knowledge of Khampa Caravan we have secured interviews with Khampa traders along the route, and no history of the "Tea Horse Road" could be complete without talking of the Khampas who lived, worked and loved along the road.
Without Khampa Caravan's participation this project could not move forward. I have attached their website and I encourage you to take a look as it provides invaluable information on the people and history along the route.
Penguin books has courageously acquired World Rights to the book which will (mountains willing) come out in autumn 2007.
I will try to stay in touch with and keep abreast of all who write in. Be patient! The mountains dictate the whats, whens, hows, and ifs. Enjoy!!
