Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo's Guide to Central Tibet has now been in use for well over a century, consulted and cherished by literate pilgrims from all over the Tibetan world. Thanks to Akester's considerable effort and dedication, this inimitable guide book has been updated for the modern scholar, researcher and traveller, and in particular for those interested to learn how Tibet was up to very recent times. As it is estimated that more than 95% of the edifices and monuments of Tibet were destroyed in the 1960s, this book has incalculable value.
