About this title


Isolated for centuries behind the Himalayas in Tibet is a mysterious and mythical mountain. Mount Kailash is 6714m (22,028ft) high. It is a mountain that captures the imagination and breathes sheer excitement into the soul. Kailash has for more than a thousand years been a central pilgrimage site for some of the world's major religions. It is sacred to Hindus, Buddhists, Bonpo and Jains from India.The guide provides all the essential planning information for the trip to one of the world's most remote regions, including travel into and within Tibet. It guides the trekker on the journey round the sacred peak, its eerie surreal canyons and its strange and striking contorted rock formations. The highest point on the trek is the Drolma La, the pass of the goddess Tara. This guide also describes a trip to the ethereal fortress ruins of Tsaparang, the former capital of Guge. This is Tibet's greatest Buddhist treasure house of art and paintings, a fairytale location not to be missed.
