Peter Matthiessen & Thomas Laird traveled deep in the secret valley of Sao Kohla, tucked high in the northernmost reaches of the Himalayas in Nepal. From the central city of Lo Monthang, known as Mustang, the two travelers, along with their entourage of government chaperones, attendants, & horsemen, began a horseback adventure to reach precariously perched monasteries long since abandoned. Expansive narrative & spectacular photos reveal a place where mountains 5 miles high cast their shadows over the deepest canyon in the world & where 150 million year old fossils rise to the light of day at 13,000 ft.
