Seven Years in Tibet

This map outlines the remarkable journey of Henrich Harrer. He was an Austrian mountaineer, who was detained in India by the British Raj during the outbreak of World War II. After a daring escape, Harrer fled north to neutral Tibet, in hopes of eventually reaching Japanese occupied China. In Tibet, he journeyed from the western Himalayas eastward to the Tibetan capital Lhasa. In Lhasa, he befriended and tutored the young Dalai Lama before they were forced to flee the Red Chinese invasion. This map outlines the journey of Henrich Harrer using details from his book "Seven Years in Tibet."
