Description Contents
Isolated for centuries behind the Himalayas in Tibet is a mysterious and mythical mountain, Mount Kailash, standing 6714 m (22,028 ft) high. The mountain has for more than a thousand years been a central pilgrimage site for some of the world's major religions.

This trek leads around the sacred peak in 3 to 4 days, following the pilgrims' route. Though short, this high-altitude trek is not to be undertaken lightly- Mount Kailash remains isolated and remote, and getting there is an epic journey in itself.

Also included in the guide is a visit to the lost kingdom of Guge, still almost unknown in the west. The ethereal ruined fortress of Tsaparang, Guge's former capital, is Tibet's greatest Buddhist treasure-house of art and paintings - a stunning location not to be missed.

* The Kailash trek, and other treks in the region, described in detail
* Extensive practical information for planning and preparation
* The key approach routes (by foot and road) and return route to Kathmandu or Lhasa
* Historical, cultural and religious background information

For adventure-seeking trekkers this comprehensive guide opens a door into the enchanting world of Kailash and western Tibet.
