This is not a tour. This is not an adventure trek. This is a pilgrimage. If you are a trekker, you wear the mountain path a lixttle more than it already is. If you are a pilgrim, you do not go there to wear the mountain path – you go there to wear yourself down. In some way, you must become less than who you think you are. Only then, there is a pilgrimage. Otherwise, it is a silly trek, because this is not much of a trek anyway.
If you want to be a pilgrim, not a tourist, one thing is you must control your cellphone use. If you wanted to see Kailash on your cellphone, I would have sent you a picture. Why should you come all the way to take a picture? We will send you one hundred spectacular images of Manasarovar and Kailash, taken with the best cameras, by the best photographers. I do not want you to pull out your silly cellphone and keep shooting Kailash. That is not the way of a pilgrim. You come to Kailash for transformation, not for accumulation.
