Kailash-Mansarovar Kailash-Mansarovar  

Trekking in the Himalayas has always been a spiritual experience. Difficulties of the journey and unceasing revelry of the mighty forces of nature bewilder the human mind. The journey of Kailsh-Mansarovar raises the level of consciousness to union with Him--the Eternal Being.
This book is an attempt at exposing the reader to various aspects of this journey to Eternity. A valuable guide, it gives a day-to-day account of the Kailash-Mansarovar yatra on the Indian as well as Tibetan side, besides important information about the geography of the region, preparation of the journey, mountain trekking, tips for photography, and much more. Valuable appendices give information such as format of application, documentation, important do's and don'ts, altitudes of important places, clothing and equipment, food items and medicines required, etc. Sixteen photographs of the yatra route have been added in the book to reveal the breathtaking natural beauty of the area.
