Description

Yak on Track: An unforgettable adventure in the last Himalayan Kingdom 
by Heather McNeice
Paperback – 28 August 2018
It seemed like a good idea to Heather at the time: organise a challenging trek to raise funds for the education of young Bhutanese girls. Heather had walked in the Himalayas before, so how hard could it be on the trail to Lunana, Bhutan’s most remote plateau? On the 240-kilometre trek, she discovers that ‘hard’ doesn’t even come close.
Along with her friend Krista, likeminded lover of mountains and margaritas, a team of eccentric guides and far too many horses, Heather sets off into a landscape of savage beauty, where yetis are feared and only yaks feel at ease. As the team face blizzards, avalanches, altitude sickness and snow blindness, their reward is a rare glimpse of life in the last Shangri-La.
At its heart, this book is a love song to Bhutan and its people, an intimate portrait of the only remaining Buddhist kingdom of the Himalayas. YAK ON TRACK is a delightful story about losing yourself but not losing your way.

On her first trip there in 2010, she was inspired to support a girls’ education program established by Bhutanese organisation RENEW.
