Summary
Mount Kailas is the most sacred of the world's mountains - holy to one fifth of humanity. Beyond the central Himalayas, claimed to be the source of the universe, its summit has never been scaled, but for centuries it has been ritually circled by Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. Colin Thubron joins these pilgrims, after a trek from Nepal. He talks to villagers and to monks in their decaying monasteries; he tells the stories of exiles and of eccentric explorers from the West
