Mt Kailash & Mansarovar Tour (Sacred Pilgrimage)
Due to the speedy congestion of the world it is only recently that Kailash has become more accessible. Nomads still spend years herding their yaks and sheep from far away corners of Tibet towards Kailash while other less self-sufficient pilgrims still spend months walking and hitching on trucks in hope of arriving. Even by Landcruiser, it is still an arduous trip. Despite the difficulties, for the atheist, ascetic and devout alike, it is a memorable journey of a lifetime.
