If you can really be with Kailash even for a few moments,Life will never again be the same for you . It is a phenomenon beyond all human imagination.

First ever Self Drive Cross Border Road Trip from Delhi to Kailash Mansarovar !!

Myself along with 4 other friends had successfully did this trip in the month of Aug 2012 and also earned a Record in Limca Book Of Records.

To enter Tibet in your own Indian registered vehicle is not that easy. You have to apply for all the very expensive special overland permits 2 months in advance and still there are high chances of last minute cancellation without any refund.Our permits to Visit Lhasa & Everest base camp got cancelled in the last moment but we were lucky to exit china in time :-)

In the high altitude region of Tibetan plateau with low oxygen level this place has the calmness that your soul can feel and experience.
