Hey there. Do check this out. This is the english translation of a very popular Nepali book called 'Seto Bagh' or as translated ' The Wake of the White Tiger'.

I can't find the seto bath book that you mentioned. Could you give me a link? Thanks!

Also, since this is a lot of books for me to read, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in writing a guest post on my blog. Take a look at http://thegloballycurious.blogspot.in/ to see the format, and send me a message if you're interested. Thanks!

Parva Chhantyal | 1 comments I want to read The Wake of the White Tiger but I have read few Nepali to English translated books and I was not really that impressed. Some books are just good in Nepali. Has anyone read The Wake of the White Tiger? how is it's translated version?

Alina Saba (alinasaba) | 4 comments Recently, I came across a book by famous writer Isabel Allende called 'Kingdom of the Golden Dragon". A fantasy tale about a treasure hunt in the Himalaya.This book is set in the fictional land called Tunkhala, resembling Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. One of the main character is named Dil Bahadur. Since we lack good Nepali fiction for young readers, this book makes an interesting read,it tells the story about Yetis, himalayas, butter tea, tsampa and many more things which we can relate to our Nepali culture. I dont say it has a great plot but definitely a good read if we want to read fantasy about legends inspired from our region.

I read that book in Spanish a long time ago! It was fun and perfect for my reading level at the time. So you thought she did a good job talking about Nepal?
