About The Book

Mount Kailash is a holy mountain on the western edge of the TibetanPlateau in China. Over recent decades, this eerily symmetrical mountain,holy to Bonpos, Buddhists, Hindus, Jains, animists and New Age seekers,has emerged as a globally important site for pilgrimage and tourism. Thismountain lies close to the point where the borders of north India andwestern Nepal meet China. What has been relatively little known to thegeneral audience is the central role that transborder interdependence hasplayed in shaping the lives, livelihoods and culture of the communitiesresiding in these borderland regions, in the proximity of Kailash.

In the monsoon of 2016, an international team of social scientists, artistsand members of the local community undertook a difficult 300-kilometre-long trek from district Humla, western Nepal, into the Tibetan AutonomousRegion, China. The aim was to document and understand the contemporaryrhythms of livelihoods, material culture and perceptions of the sacredamong the communities living along an ancient southern route to MountKailash, which had been in use for transborder trade and pilgrimage forseveral centuries. This book, studded with lush photographs, brings to lifeseveral individuals and scenes encountered during this expedition-storiesof the past, of change, of aspirations, of the sheer beauty and vulnerabilitiesof life in one of the least accessible but most sacred corners of the world.
