Driving across the Chang Tang Plain, we follow the trails of the ancient salt caravan route. At the foot of Mt. Kailash, we will perform the ancient rite of circumambulating known as "Parikrama" a full circuit of the peak. We then visit Lake Mansarovar and traveling southward to Kharsa, and then to Kathmandu via Zhangmu border.
