Mount Kailash Trip

A journey to the holiest Mt. Kailash and Masarovar with the proper acclimatization and exploration tours in Lhasa.

Mount Kailash TripThe Once in Lifetime Lhasa Kailash journey takes you to Lhasa, Shangri-La of Tibet and mythical Mount Kailash (6714m) and Lake Manasarovar. Mount Kailash, the holiest of all the holy mountains, the spiritual junction for the Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bonpos: is situated in the western part of Tibet. For the devout pilgrim a visit to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar forms the ultimate realization of their spiritual pursuit. And for the adventure-lovers it offers rugged beauty, remoteness, solitude and an adventure into another way of life.

We explore the Shangri-La's treasure trove of architectural masterpieces - majestic Potala palace, sparkling ancient Barkhor square, the scenic Buddhist monasteries of Drepung, once the largest The Jhokhang temple - a spiritual center, the awesome summer palaces of the Dalai Lama - Norbulinkha and peaceful and eye catching monk debating in Sera Monastery. After proper acclimatisaion and witnessing Lhasa's wonder we take the rigorous overland driving, trekking and camping, through the remote and wild western Tibet to Mount Kailash. We can see the numbers of isolated villages, nomads' tents with flocks of sheep, domesticated mountain goats and yaks grazing at the vast field. It is a journey into a remote and secluded land where one seems to leave behind one's material attachments as they travel towards the holy lake and Mt. Kailash.

Lake Mansarovar, an expanse of sparkling blue water sprawling over several miles, believed to be the seat of Brahma (the Creator of Universe) and the snow capped Mount Kailash is considered as the abode of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati. The entire Kailash circuit trek is the holiest of all the Tibet's pilgrimages, an oasis of peace and serenity and the beacon that draws the many travelers to the western Tibet every year. It is said that a single circumference erases the accumulated sins of a lifetime while 108 circumferences achieve the Salvation or Nirvana.
