Mt. Kailash in Tibet is considered the holiest place on earth to one out of every five humans. Buddhist, Hindu, Jan, and Bon pilgrims believe that walking around Mount Kailash on foot is a holy ritual that brings good fortune and absolves all sins. In August 2013, photographer/writer Mikkel Aaland and his Japanese companion, Kazz Tagami, traveled from Nepal, through western Tibet, to Mt. Kailash. This is a record of their journey.
