Book Description:
Here Be Yaks chronicles the adventures of a group of ordinary people on an extraordinary journey to one of the most isolated corners of Tibet. From Lhasa they travel ever upwards along the ancient Tasam Highway, stopping at ancient stage posts and battling altitude sickness and exhaustion, to reach Mount Kailash, revered by four faiths. Here they perform the sacred hidden inner kora, or circumambulation of Kailash, each seeking a personal religious epiphany. The author, haunted by the recent loss of her husband, finds peace and solace in this sacred place. Her curiosity piqued by an old map, she also solves one of the few remaining geographic mysteries on the planet the true source of the river Sutlej, a matter of controversy for centuries. An adventure story told with a scholar's touch, Here Be Yaks represents an important addition to the literature on Tibet.

Foreword by His Holiness The Dalai Lama.
