    Background: Visnews filmed April 9 in the dense jungle and the mountains of Assam, Northern India, through which the Dalai Lama will travel to central India and the place he will select to be
    his residence during his exile from Tibet.

    Foot Hill is the border station of the frontier between Assam and the North East
    Frontier Agency. The Dalai Lama is expected to pass through here on his way to
    Tezpur.

    Tezpur, 48 miles away, lies in the heart of the jungle. Normally a small quiet
    township, Tezpur is now bustling with life in experience of the Dalai Lama, who
    will travel by jeep, mule and even on foot through the difficult country between
    the Towang Monastery - where he is resting after his escape from Tibet - and the
    first outposts of civilization where more comfortable transport is waiting for
    him.

    This jungle is considered to be one of the most difficult areas in the world.

    Rhinoceros are among the wild animals which roam the forests, and travelling can
    be both dangerous and exhausting.
