In Kailas Yatra, Param Pujya Swami Tapovanam describes his journey to Pashupatinath, Kailas and Manasarover. In the foreword to this book Swami Chinmayananda wrote: "Though the spiritual path is very harsh like the edge of a knife, by continuous practice it becomes like a silken bed. The means by which the path becomes easy to travel happily are what are described in this book under the pretext of a journey to Kailas." This book was translated from Malayalam to English by Swamini Niranjanananda.

Swami Tapovan Maharaj (1889-1957) was a Hindu Sannyasi and Vedanta scholar who taught both Swami Chinmayananda, the founder of the Chinmaya Mission Movement and Swami Sundaranand. Born in Palakkad, Kerala as Subramanian Nair, Tapovan Maharaj exhibited a thirst for spiritual knowledge and self realisation, also being an accomplished public speaker. He left the modern education system early and dedicated himself to the study of Sanskrit and the Vedanta. After his brother became employed as a lawyer, he entered the order of Sannyasi. Tapovan Maharaj did not believe in the system of "ashrams", and was known for his strict solitary lifestyle in the Himalayan region of Uttarkashi. He authored two books on his travels through the Himalayas: "Wanderings in the Himalayas" (Himagiri Viharam) and "Kailasa Yatra." Tapovan Maharaj exhibited a deep love for nature and his accounts of his travels demonstrate such. His autobiography, written in Sanskrit is titled "Ishvara Darshana". He died in 1957. Swami Sundaranand is another well known disciple of Swami Tapovan Maharaj..
