Kailash Kora - Lhasa, Tibet

Kailash Kora

Thanks Kim Bannister for this favorite place.

This is one of the most obvious Tibetan experiences, but still amazing if you leave your group and choose a group of Tibetans to walk with, hiking up to the monasteries for the smaller Koras and following them as they perform the many rituals along the way. I never get tired of this, and cresting the 5600 meter Drolma La, with so much energy, so colorful, so full of excitement and possibility.
