Krishna Singh Rawat (also known as Kishen Singh) was the cousin of the famous explorer and cartographer, Nain Singh Rawat.

Singh's last and greatest journey commenced in 1878. He followed the northern trade route from Lhasa to Xinjiang and China. He followed the route all the way to Dunhuang, and on his way back explored the eastern Tibet border region. At one point the caravan leader wanted the caravan to go by horse to cross a bandit-ridden area faster. Krishna, unable to count his steps during this period, measured the distance (230 miles) by counting his horse's steps instead.
