* Sven Anders Hedin (Stockholm, 19 February 1865 — yonder,, 26 November 1952) was a Swedish explorer who made several journeys to Central Asia and Tibet. Hedin travelled to Tibet in 1906-1908. He visited various holy places, like the Tibetan monastery of the Ninth Panchen Lama, Tashilhunpo, Lake Manasarovar and the mountain Kailash. He mapped the area at the north of the Tsangpo river. This journey made the last large blank spots on the map of Tibet disappear. Source: Wikipedia.

  • Sent quickly, and I'm sure all would have been fine, but PostNL has been a total nightmare on this parcel. Sender was always perfect and very helpful, though.

    Prettig telefonisch contact met verkoper om praktisch probleem op te lossen. Daarna kwam het pakket snel. De boeken geweldig goed verpakt (meteen aan het lezen geslagen). Heel tevreden.
