I can't help but feel jealous of late comers who manage to read the thread at one go and waste only 3 hours.

Sorry, I could post only that much in one day hence took long. And not to forget it was your post that instigated GD sir to come out with the threat and hence the thread happened

Hi,

This is really one of the most well written and detailed travelogues that I have ever come across. I really appreciate the fact that you have put in such a lot of efforts to write this. The pics are awesome as well. Its a 5 star rating from me as well.

Last heard Usain Bolt was running for cover in Berlin....

Glad to know that I'm still being "reverently" mentioned around here...!

Thank you, and you most welcome to get in touch with me whenever you want to. The purpose of this whole trip log will be solved if it can motivate some people to take this life time trip.

But a word of strong advice for all those interested. Guys do no procrastinate this trip. That place is getting more and more commercialised as the years pass. I can bet on you 5 years down the line you will have proper roads there, proper hotels, touts trying to sell from anything to everything etc etc there.

Proper roads, commercialisation, good hotels I agree is all good, but then the trip looses it charm. there wont be any adventure left. Plus also, the older you get the harder it gets on high altitudes. And also not to forget the price factor. 5 yrs back the same trip costed 50k. Today it costs 75K, 5 years hence it may cost 125k.

So if you wanna do it, do it ASAP

Deky, this must be the most outstanding and gripping travelogue I've ever read. Along with the fantastic pictures and your in-depth description of the do's and don'ts, this is a travelogue I rate at 7-star. Your mother's spirit in undertaking the whole trip with a smile through all the adversities she had faced, is highly appreciated, and I convey my respects and regards to her for it. My congratulations and thanks go to you too, for going through the trip and keeping such detailed records to share with us.

This is the trip of a lifetime, and someday soon, I want to do this too.

I have sat and gone through this travelogue more than once while Deky was writing the details, and spent a lot more than 3 hours doing so, but never for a single second have I considered it be a waste of time.

Think of it this way. As long as we are reading and not doing the actual trip, we are wasting our time and life anyway.

I am trying not to waste my time. I have already started saving 2K per month for this trip.

A truly mesmerizing travelogue. It was like reading a gripping novel, couldn't stop till I read it from start to finish.

Very well written and presented.

Showed my family the pictures and all of them were very impressed.

Wow! What an amazing trip and an equally well written writeup!!

Thanks Deky for sharing it with us!

My head's full of Tibet now!!
Can you share the travel agent details? (I am sorry if I missed them! Was up till 2 reading it till the end!) Do you know if there are tours only to Kailash? What if someone just wants to go to Lhasa and around for a holiday?

Cheers again mate!

Sorry about the late reply. I was out for some time and did not have any Internet facility.

As for your query, No I did not mention anything about the travel agent anywhere in the Log. I will send you a PM regarding his details.

Not sure if you can do Lhasa on its own (as we went on a pilgrimage group visa) but send an email to the travel agent and he will guide you if its possible or not.
