Alexandra David-Néel,
an explorer on the roof of the world

Gwenaëlle Abolivier, Gopal Dagnogo, Enguerrand Meheust
On foot, on the back of a mule or even a yak, David- Néel will cross India, Tibet and China. In 1924, she is the first western woman to enter secretly Lhassa, a Tibetan town forbidden to foreigners.
