The history of the Schlagintweit Brothers

Adolph, Hermann, and Robert Schlagintweit explored large parts of India and the Himalayas in the middle of the 19th century.

It took them many years to get there, however. Read the prehistory about what they did before they set out for India.

There they got to explore an almost "new world." Their way lead them through India and the mountains of the Himalayas. Read about their impressive expedition to the top of the world in India and high Asia.

Here you can have a look to their ways in Asia on a map.
