Mount. Kailash is also one of the highest mountain in Tibet ( 22,022 ft). Likewise, lake Manasarovar lying at 14,950 ft. is the highest fresh-water lake in the world. The distance from Lhasa is approximately 2,000km. Only during the last few years have travelers been able to experience this region. Road conditions are difficult much of the time and we have to make many preparations to ensure that we have a reasonable chance of reaching Kailash. We need to bring our own food and camping equipment. Basic lodges and teahouses can be found but they are rare. To travel for days on this remote plateau with the chance encounters of no mats herding their sheep or yaks is to be transferred into another way of life, to see and become part of such a devout pilgrimage as shown by pilgrims around Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar is to put some aspects of our western way of life into their proper perspective.
