When I was on Cho in 1997 we saw several caravans coming and going over that route and I talked to a couple of Indians doing a pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash. One poor girl was in a pair of red canvas tennis shoes! Hope she kept all her parts.
That's well before the shootings in 2006. I doubt that the pass is seeing so much business these days. I just had to check to refresh my memory, but the south side ends up at Thame, about an hour or two from Namche.
