Heinrich Harrer On Natural Beauty

“The scenery was unforgettable.  It was the colors that enchanted the eye, and I have seldom seen all the hues of a painter’s palette so harmoniously blended.  Alongside the clear waters of the Indus were light yellow fields of borax, with the green shoots of springtime springing up near them (for spring in these regions does not come until June).  In the background were gleaming snow peaks.”

— Heinrich Harrer, Seven Years In Tibet
