Tibet, Kailash, the Silk Road: The Diamond Path.

 

"Apart from the information of historical & spiritual nature in relation to Kailas, we also learn a great deal about the consequences of the Chinese occupation, the life of the nomads, the lack of safety on the roads, about traveling solo & the future of this part of the world. From there we move on across the Trans Himalayas to Kashgar, following in the footsteps of Sven Hedin, even more closely than previously in Tibet, past the Taklamakan desert & up over the mountain massif of Mustagh Ata, & finish with a stretch of the Silk Road. Baumann is a master at weaving personal experience & fact into a taut, entertaining, & informative book."
