4:Kailas - The SacredMountain
A little to the north of India, across the jagged rampart of the Great Himalaya in the southern-most portion of Western Tibet stands the sacred mountain of Kailas. Had a religious map of Asia ever been drawn, many of the thin red lines tracing the principal pilgrim routes would have been seen to converge on this remote and remarkable peak.
In the spring of 1936 the Austrian writer and traveller HERBERT TICHY , in company with CHATTER BHUJ KAPUR, undertook a pilgrimage to the mountain. John Snelling tells the story of their hazardous journey.
