Travellers on the Hippie Trail, 1959-1979

A series of interrelated economic, cultural, technological, and demographic changes resulted in
large numbers of western youth traveling between Turkey and India/Nepal in the twenty year period ending in
1979; a path later termed “the Hippie Trail.” The presentation based on a book manuscript details the causal
factors and socio‐demographic characteristics of those who made the journey.
