Etymology
Yak Caravan
Yak Caravan at Dolpo

Caravan is a Persian word describing the traveling group of people, mainly nomads; often on a trade expedition.

The origin of the word goes back to 1580s. There are various sources for the origin, namely; Middle French caravane, Old French carvane/carevane, or Medieval Latin caravana, which were picked up during the Crusades from Persian karwan “group of desert travelers”.

Today, Caravans are mainly organized to transport rations, trek and climbing gears etc in the remote mountainous regions. During the trip at the mountains, you can easily encounter Yak or mule caravans on trail. Most of the time, they’ll be carrying your loads too.
