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.
For Tibet Overland and Adventure Tour We need to bring our own food and camping equipment. Basic lodges and teahouses can be found but the plateau is so remote that it is possible to travel for several days without finding food available.
