For him, travel in the Himalaya is as much about the spirit as about landscapes, leeches and aching knees. This sets him on a lively trail of holy men, both saintly and fraudulent, across all the pilgrim centres of the Himalaya.

He travels in bulging buses to Rishikesh and Badrinath, Kedarnath and Gangotri. He seeks out tiny disused temples to little-known deities like Anasuiya, and discovers a village with temples dedicated to Duryodhana. he spends seven ascetic years in an ashram at Mirtola.

All along he gropes for an answer to the question: what power does the Himalaya possess that has drawn generations of seekers to it?
