To a mountain in Tibet

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The master of travel writing at his most elegiac and luminous best tackling an arduous Tibetan mountain and his mother's recent death. In his new book, Colin Thubron travels to Tibet, and takes the pilgrimage route to Kailas, the most sacred of the world's mountains, holy to one fifth of the earth's people, but rarely visited by westerners. Buddhists and Hindus have ritually circled the mountain for centuries, but its steepest slopes are sacrosanct and no one has ever climbed to the summit. Thubron made the expedition shortly after his mother's death, and his hike through a challenging terrain of rocks, lakes and remote monasteries is perhaps one of his most personal and poetic books to date. Good condition. Dust jacket slightly worn and corner bumped. Small pen mark on top right of dust jacket.
