The Kora (film)
The Kora is a new film by Joey Schusler that follows three riders into Tibet during a 10-day bikepacking trip to attempt the “Yading Kora”…
“High in the Himalayan hinterlands of Sichuan province, three massive mountains soar above sprawling floodplains and bamboo forests below. For Tibetans, a successful pilgrimage around the base of these sacred giants—known as the “Yading Kora”–is believed to purify a lifetime of negative karma.” Inspired by this idea, Brice Minnigh, Joey Schusler, and Sam Seward set out by bike on a 10-day self-supported bikepacking journey to complete this kora.
We had entered an utterly new dimension: A place where the harshness of life is met with a spirituality of stoicism. Where mountains and mysticism are one and the same. -Brice Minnigh
