About 'The Land of the Dawn Lit Mountains':
In The Land of the Dawn Lit Mountains, award-winning adventurer Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent recounts her ventures to Arunachal Pradesh - the far north-eastern corner of India. Arunachal Pradesh means the 'land of the dawn-lit mountains' and has remained uniquely isolated. A fragile buffer against Chinese expansionism, Arunachal Pradesh was closed to foreigners between 1950 and 1998, and even today the need for permits and restrictions makes this a little-visited region. Not since pith-helmeted explorers went in search of the fabled 'Falls of the Brahmaputra' has an outsider dared to traverse it. The Land of the Dawn Lit Mountains allows us a unique and fascinating account into one of the world's least explored places.
