On our fourth day, we finally embarked for the China border. After an early wake-up, we boarded the buses and made the scenic yet windy (and often bumpy) route to the “Friendship Bridge,” the border crossing to China.
After a successful crossing we reached the border town, Zhangmu, where we would spend the night. After getting instructions to keep us healthy we had some food and took a walk through the Zhangmu streets. We met more Yatris in our group, including our Kailash guide, Rajender, Rashid, Dr. Veena and Vidya who has been dreaming of going to Kailash since she was a child.
Next stop… Saga and Paryang, Tibet.
