Event details

One of our greatest living travel writers recounts his pilgrimage by foot to the holy mountain of Mount Kailas in Tibet, whose peak represents the most sacred place on earth to a fifth of humankind. To both Buddhists and Hindus it is the mystic heart of the world and an ancient site of pilgrimage.

Encountering alien faiths, exotic landscapes and peoples, myths and traditions foreign to our own, he explores modern Tibetan culture during an intimate personal voyage.

Presented by Turner Sims in association with the Royal Geographical Society.
