Overview

Till recently the only way to reach two of India’s most beautiful and non accessible valleys of Vyas & Dharma was by an treacherous 15 days trek over high passes and glaciers thorough deep valleys and gorges. Many devotees and adventure seekers travelled on this route to visit Shri Adi Kailash & Om Parvat Mountains which are on route to Kailash Mansarovar.

Join us on this adventurous road trip to the frontiers of India on the newly constructed road which is one of the most challenging routes in India for an overwhelming & mesmerised journey that even we find difficult to narrate with words.
