Don’t worry; you don’t need to do the climbing. Relax with your favorite beverage as you watch “The Yak Guesthouse,” Sierra Club member Bob Caplan’s documentary of his wife Anita’s determination to circle Tibet’s most sacred peak, 22,000-foot Mt. Kailash, also known as Mt. Meru, the Center of the Universe and Home of the Gods in Hindu and Buddhist tradition. For 25 years Anita dreams of circling Kailash, but China forbids foreign access. But attaining permission does not mean that success is assured. Life-taking landslides, swift rivers, and fierce storms threaten to destroy the expedition. Sparkling night skies, moments of quiet and reflection, extraordinary people and scenery, and determination to reach Mt. Kailash sustain it.
