HEALTH IN THE HIMALAYA takes the reader deep inside the Himalayan communities of Tibet, Bhutan and Ladakh. Stories of health interventions are interspersed with intrepid adventures of trekking, white-water rafting and travelling over 5,000 metre passes, enveloped in the spectacular Himalaya. Readers learn about Gross National Happiness, about Buddhist culture and about how people live successfully, yet simply, in harmony with nature in these harsh environments.
