University of Zagreb's Ethnology Department in cooperation with Mr. Darko Beljak, who led the expedition, organized a study excursion to Tibet in September and October of 1999. Our team consisted of 18 members, among them five ethnology and indology students (Ivana Hrdas, Maja Koščević, Ines Lasić, Olga Orlić, Ana Marija Pandurić) and two of their teachers — Tomo Vinscak, who lead the ethnological research, and Krešimir Krnic. The purpose of their stay in Tibet was to acquaint themselves with Tibetan traditional culture, religion, rituals, customs, and their way of life. This paper aims at giving an outline of the course of the journey and also to interpret the most important practices of pilgrimage.
