Wigtown Book Festival: Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent - <i>Land of the Dawn-lit Mountains</i>

Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


The north-eastern corner of India, Arunachal Pradesh – “land of the dawn-lit mountains” – was closed to foreigners between 1950 and 1998. Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent set out to chronicle this forgotten Shangri-La. A brilliant speaker, she tells of her epic 2000-mile journey, encountering shamans, lamas, hunters, opium farmers, fantastic tribal festivals and little-known stories from the second world war.

“A fabulously thrilling journey through a beguiling land,” Joanna Lumley. Sponsored by Wigtown Motor Company.

Tickets: £8.00.
