Edvard Amundsen (January 27, 1873 - December 21, 1928) was a Norwegian explorer and Lutheran missionary in China and Tibet. He is also known as a Tibetan specialist. Amundsen traveled with Theo Sørensen to Darjeeling and Kalimpong in 1896 as a missionary for the Chinal Inland Mission, where he studied Tibetan religion and customs. After completing his language studies, he parted ways with Sørensen and traveled on to Lhasa. At some later point, Amundsen and Sørensen traveled together to Dartsedo in the foothills of the Tibetan plateau. In 1900, during the Boxer Rebellion, Amundsen was forced to leave China for Darjeeling, but he returned in 1903 and worked in Yunnan or the British and Foreign Bible Society until 1911. He served in China for the last time from 1918/1919 until 1924 for the Mission Covenant Church of Norway.
