Crossing Tibet by your own car is almost impossible. Mainly because of the bureaucratic boundaries the China government are building in front of your car. Getting a group and all the permits together can easily take one year of preparation. But once you made it into the country which is surrounded by snow peaks you won’t regret it…
Only 75 years ago it was not allowed for foreigners to travel to Tibet. Nowadays things changed. But still it is quite tough to get all the necessary permits, especially when you traveling with your own vehicle. But it is worth all the work and the costs. A unique journey into a mythic country which is surrounded by snow mountains and which shows every new day an even more beautiful side than the day before.
The holy mountain Kailash. Holy for four religions. For the Buddhists and Hindus the center of the world. A walk around the mountain is not only for the pilgrims a special and emotional experience. I am taking you with me on the hike and a moving journey.
Snow covered mountains, endless grass lands with wild horses. Nomads. This is Kyrgyzstan. A very beautiful country. And the last station before China and the legendary city at the Silk Road – Kashgar.
