Adventurer and scholar Michel Peissel died on 7 October 2011, aged 74, in Paris. Peissel travelled extensively throughout the Himalayan region, which he documented in a number of books, including Tibet, the Secret Continent (2003). He held a Doctorate in Tibetan Ethnology from the Sorbonne in Paris, reflecting his interest in the region and its way of life. He was a member of the Explorers’ Club of New York and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), and lectured at the latter’s headquarters in London in the 1990s.
