Detailed Product Description
London, 1983, 1st edition. 242 pp, 32 b/w photos and illustrations. Black cloth Hardcover with gilt lettering on spine and dust jacket. Very Good to Near Fine condition. 

The definitive book on holy Mount Kailas. The author has examined all the narratives of the Western visitors to Mount Kailas, and in so doing has compiled what amounts to a chronicle of the explorations of this part of Tibet. 
 
Mount Kailas the most sacred mountain in the world. Uncannily symmetrical, this remote and remarkable peak located in the forbidden land of Tibet might have been built by super human hands. John Snelling recounts their difficult and dangerous pilgrimages and analyses the spiritual significance of Kailas and of sacred mountains in general.

Foreword by (Travers) Christmas Humphreys, who was  an English barrister and author of a number of works on Mahayana Buddhism and in his day was the best-known British convert to Buddhism.
