A Trans Himalayan Journey to Mount Kailash

Author Name: Diptendra Prasad | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Travel

Sorry we are currently not available in your region.

Kailash is considered to be the center of our planet and is an attraction to many. It attracted me too for years, and I finally could make this journey only in 2015, traveling for 21 days, crossing the formidable Himalayas through the high Himalayan Lipulekh Pass into Tibet. The book is a compilation of my personal experiences in this journey through the classical route followed by a lot of pilgrims and holy men in the past.

 I have tried to capture the minute details of this life-changing journey as best as possible in the various chapters. A day-to-day account with illustrations provides the reader a flavor of this journey in great detail. A section of this book is devoted to help future travelers with the preparations they need to do, both physical and mental, and the safety aspects to be followed. It also has a few lines on High Altitude Illness. While preparing for this important pilgrimage, I could not find a lot of vital information and facts initially. I tried to collect this information from various sources, and after reading them and understanding them, I felt very confident to do this yatra.   

Diptendra Prasad is a passionate traveler, who has traveled to various countries in four continents during the course of his working life. He is an avid Himalayan lover and has been to a lot of exotic and remote places in the Himalayas. A graduate in science from Calcutta University, he also holds a post graduate diploma in International Trade. He has worked for over 28 years in Sales and specially in the field of Analytical Instrumentation and served as Country Sales Manager for a US Multinational for over seven years.

He likes to work in teams and is a great motivator for young people. His love for camping, trekking and other activities took him to the Himalayas a number of times. The Himalayas took him out of his busy life in the corporate world at least once a year into the Himalayan wilderness and close to the snow. Diptendra is a life member of the Himalayan Club and loves to participate in most of the activities of similar forums. One of his best hobbies is nature photography, especially Himalayan photography.

He lives with his wife, Sandhya, two sons, Saptarshi and Rajarshi, and his dear mother in Kolkata.
