Kora is an epic journey to Mount Kailash and the circumambulation of the holiest mountain in the Himalayas. Revered by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and others, a circumambulation, or kora, of Mount Kailash and a dip in the holy waters of nearby Lake Manasarovar is said to remove the sins of all life times. This video was shot in high definition at altitudes up to 18,000 feet above sea level over thirty days. It also includes visits to sacred places in Sichuan Province of China, the heavenly state, and Nepal.

What they are saying about Kora:

"No surprises in the Documentary category: Burt Chojnowski’s Kora – shot, amazingly, with a flip-camera when his gear crapped out on him thousands of feet up a mountainside – had been a favorite from the beginning. Finished the same way."
