With light brown fur and white belly, the Tibetan antelopes have a pair of 60 - 7Ocm long bamboo-like black antlers. Looking from the side, the pair of antlers appear exactly the same, gaining the antelope a nickname: Unicorn.
The Tibetan antelope is a graceful animal, It likes to walk with the head low, but when it runs, the speed can exceed over 100 kilometer per hour, far ahead of the chasing wolf pack. The antelopes often dwell on the river or lake banks where grass flourish. Every year when the mating season comes, the antelopes will migrate northward to the lake region, which is also home for migrating birds. In autumn, the mother antelopes will bring their offspring back south. A flock of antelope normally consists of around 100 members. But at the mating and breeding season, sometimes thousands will gather to form a moving forest of antlers.
The most interesting aspect about the antelopes is their sense of rule: No matter running under what circumstances, grown-up antelopes always take the lead, younger members will follow behind. They appear to be running in a strict order and never change it. When taking a rest, the antelopes will dig a pit and he down. As the male antelopes’ antlers stick above the pits, it appears as if some tree seedlings have suddenly propped up. The antlers can be good medicine material. The fine wool of Tibetan antelope fetches prices higher than gold on the international textile market. This great profit has driven many poachers into slaughtering the Tibetan antelopes. Chinese police are doing their best to tackle this issue.

Dear Ms. Pa***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.
There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
