Gu-ge is where Atisha revived Buddhism in Tibet in the 11th Century. It is the location Tholing monastery & the deserted citadel of Tsaparang - places described by Lama Govinda in the Tibet travel classic "The Way of the White Clouds".

The Buddhist art at Tholing & Tsaparang was mostly destroyed in China's Cultural Revolution in the 1960's but this book describes encounters & the journey across Western Tibet, the pilgrimage around Mt Kailash & the remains of the temples of Gu-ge - it is a unique contemporary document of this remote part of Tibet.

Landscape format 10”x8” 128 pages.
