The Best Books on Nepal


I was invited to select 5 of my favorite books on Nepal.

I picked the five books I feel will introduce Nepal best to a first time visitor.

Tiger for Breakfast by Michel Peissel

The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

Video Night in Kathmandu by Pico Iyer

Kathmandu by Thomas Bell

I really wanted to include a book by a Nepali writer or a female author. If you have any ideas, please mail them into the comments.

Take a look! – The Best Books on Nepal. And keep reading the good stuff.
