Tibet: Mount Kailash & The Guge Kingdom - Group Tours

Kailash, the holy mountain that stands at the center of the Buddhist, Hindu, Bon and Jain universes, the earthly manifestation of Mount Meru, is the focus of journeys to western Tibet. To make a circumambulation (kora) of Mount Kailash is to cleanse yourself of the sins of a lifetime.

From the great monasteries and temples of Lhasa and central Tibet take a pilgrimage to and around the sacred mountain at the heart of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cosmology, spend a night on the shores of the vast blue Lake Manasarovar - legendary birthplace of the great rivers of Asia. Travel through stunning landscapes to explore the religious and artistic heritage of the historic kingdom of Guge, on the banks of the Sutlej River. Cross the vast grasslands for a spectacular close-up view of the world's highest mountain.
