    • Synopsis
    • This film tells the story of a group of people from
      Zagreb who travel with Croatian, Nepalese and Tibetan guides on a journey from Nepal to the beautiful
      Tibetan highlands. The journey takes them on a meandering route from Kathmandu via Lhasa to western
      Tibet, to make a pilgrimage, or kora, to the sacred
      mountain Kailash. This itinerary allows the travelers to
      adapt quickly to life in the mountain ranges of Tibet,
      without succumbing to altitude sickness. The travelers’
      adventurous spirits and enquiring minds allow them to
      step willingly into this unfamiliar environment. Of the
      group, only the scriptwriter – Dubravka Manola – is
      familiar with this landscape. She took part in a similar
      expedition ten years earlier and has a strong spiritual
      connection with Tibet. The purpose of this very special
      film is to create an authentic record of the travelers’
      preparations in the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, as
      well as their adventures and experiences in Tibet.
