Mount Kailas is the most sacred of the world’s mountains – holy to one fifth of humanity. Isolated beyond the central Himalayas, it is claimed by myth to be the source of the universe created from cosmic waters and the mind of Brahma. Its summit has never been scaled, but for centuries the mountain has been ritually circled by Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims.
Colin Thubron joins these pilgrims, after an arduous trek from Nepal, through the high passes of Tibet, to the magical lakes beneath the slopes of Kailas itself. His trek around the great mountain, revered by multitudinous others, awakes an inner landscape of solitude, love, grief, restoring precious fragments of his own origins.

Third Colin Thubron travel book I've listened to but not as good as In Siberia and Shadow of the Silk Road. I did enjoy the book but I had a few instances where my attention drifted.
This is as much a personal journey as it is a travel book. This book was OK but I would reccommend the other two first.
"This is really a goood book and recommend the book"
This is really a good book and worth buying it and i recommend to everyone .
