Detailed Product Description
London, Andre Deutsch, 1982, 1st edition. 255 pp, b/w photos, illustrations, maps. Hardcover in its original black cloth with gold letters on the spine and dust jacket. Fine condition.

Many explorers have sought Kailas, from which flows the Ganges, Indus, Sutlej and Tsangpo-Brahmaputra. Buddhists and Hindus regard Mount Kailas as the holiest mountain on earth, revered as the home of the Gods and the navel of the world. Near the mountain are the sources of the Indus, the Sutlej, the Ganges and the Tsangpo-Brahamaputra, Asia's mightiest and most sacred rivers.  Allen recounts how Westerners took up the challenge of trying to understand and explore the mountain and the rivers.
