Holmes informs a stunned Dr Watson: 'I travelled for two years in Tibet, therefore, and amused myself by visiting Lhasa.' This is all that the world has known of Sherlock Holmes' journey to the East. Jamyang Norbu - an avid reader of Kipling and Doyle ­ decides to take the matter in his hands; to investigate Holmes' stay in Lhasa, Tibet.
