Tour Details

In the far west of Tibet is Mt Kailash (6714m), the most sacred mountain in Asia, which is venerated by Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and the ancient Bon religion of Tibet.

It is an important site for pilgrims who make 52km circuit, or kora of the mountain conquering a 5630m pass with some gorgeous mountain scenery along this trek including close ups of the majestic pyramidal Mt. Kailash.

This circumbulation, clockwise for Buddhists and Hindus and anti-clockwise for Bon followers, is said to erase the sins of a lifetime. The mountain itself is 6714m high and with its four sheer walls and snow capped peak is an awe-inspiring sight and a trek here wonderfully integrates the spiritual, cultural and physical dimensions of any trip to Tibet.

This tour takes us to Kathmandu-Lhasa-Gyantse-Shigatse-Shigar-Mt. Everest Base Camp-Saga-Lhatse-Lhasa-Kathmandu.

Our sightseeing tour in Lhasa starts from its cardinal landmark – Potala Palace, a structure of massive portions.

When we finally get to Base Camp, the first sight of the mighty Everest simply leaves us speechless. All the hardship we bear along the way makes sense at this while.
