Lonely Planet Writer’s Body Found in Tibet

Three months after he was reported missing, one of Lonely Planet‘s most experienced travel writers, Clem Lindenmayer, has been found dead on a Chinese mountainside. The Independent reports that Lindenmayer had set out to climb Mount Gongga, in a remote area of south-west China, telling his family that he expected to complete a circuit in six days. When they failed to hear from him, his relatives posted messages on travellers’ websites. China’s official Xinhua news agency reported yesterday that villagers had found his body last Thursday.

The Australian-born writer had been based in Switzerland “on and off” for nearly 20 years, according to Lonely Planet. He was not on assignment for the guide-book publisher in China, but the company had said that it was aware of the situation and was in touch with his family.
