Kailash-Manasarovar: A Pilgrimage - VCD (English Commentary with Musical Accompaniment)
- 105 minutes, Indian VCD
- (retail only)
A video recording of a pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash, one of the world’s most remote holy places in Tibet that is sacred to Shiva.
Mt. Kailash is a great mass of black rock soaring to over 22,000 feet, with the unique distinction of being the world’s most venerated holy place, and at the same time the least visited. It is a supremely sacred site of four religions and billions of people.
Kailash is seen by no more than a few thousand pilgrims each year. This curious fact is explained by the mountain’s remote location in far western Tibet. No planes, trains or buses journey anywhere near the region and even with rugged over-land vehicles the journey still requires weeks of difficult, often dangerous travel. The weather, always cold, can be unexpectedly treacherous and pilgrims must carry all the supplies they will need for the entire journey. Times are changing and roads are under construction, making this VCD an even more important visual record of the pilgrimage.
System Requirements: For PC or Apple computers or a DVD player that can read the Video CD format (VCD).
