Two years ago this week I was due to fly to India for a 28 day tour. Funnily enough that didn’t happen. Today, however, I’m delighted to be able to feature a book that can be a bit of compensation! My thanks to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to participate in this blog tour for Inner Trek: A Reluctant Pilgrim in the Himalayas by Mohna Ranga Rao . I’m only sorry I wasn’t able to fit in a review. Let me tell you all about it:
Inner Trek: A Reluctant Pilgrim in the Himalayas
After being threatened by a Bangalore mob boss, retired Indian businessman in Mohan Ranga Rao makes a vow: if he somehow gets out of the situation, he will thank the gods by going on Kailash Mansarova, a holy mountain pilgrimage in Tibet.
What starts out as merely a challenging high-altitude trek soon becomes a life-changing adventure.
With a blend of humour, honesty and keen insight, Mohan journeys toward a deeper understanding of the world around him.
A memoir of a road less travelled and a true story of self-discovery at 18,000 feet.
