The present volume is based on travel writings and letters. Annette Bräker and Horst H. Geerken take us with them on a more than 3000-kilometre journey from Pakistan through the Hunza Valley to Kashgar in Xinjiang and back to Pakistan. The book deals with the history, culture and peoples of the Hunza Valley and Xinjiang. As well as with historical facts the book is larded with amusing anecdotes about their experiences. It is an amusing and humorous, but also informative read.
