The area is accessible by road or by an excellent camel and a horseback ride. It takes about four to five days to reach by way of the road, and around three days by way of the camelback trip.
The mines of this precious mineral are located near the villages of the Kalikasad and Gangotri districts. The villages are close to the village of Sikkar where the salt is mined. The journey from Kalikasad to Gangotri takes around one and a half days and it also takes three days by way of the camel and a horseback ride.
