Mt.KAILASH Tour & Trek



Tibet remains a fascination and lures a large number of tourists every year. This once forbidden land is easily accessible by land and by air via Nepal. In fact a combined trip of Nepal and Tibet can be truly rewarding. Tibet was opened to tourists as late as the1980’s. Despite the massive destruction of religious monuments since Chinese rule, there is much left to see in Tibet making the trip worthwhile. With Tibetan Buddhism gaining popularity even among the rich and famous in the west, more and more tourists are pouring into Tibet. Known as the 'Roof of the world', this large country is under-populated though over the years thousands of ethnic Chinese have moved in. The Tibetan plateau covers much of the land and the diverse topography ranges from 1,700m gorges to 8,000m Himalayan peaks. The early British expeditions to Mt. Everest were launched from Tibet and the route to the north face of the mountain remains open today. Lhasa, the capital of Tibet is the obvious attraction with the famous Potala Palace and its 1000 rooms. It was the seat of the Dalai Lama who ruled over the Tibetan people until his exile in 1959. Jhokhang Monastery, the holiest Buddhist shrine in all of Tibet and Norbulingka, the former summer retreat of the Dalai Lama are worth a visit. One of the most popular destinations in western Tibet for tourists as well as Hindu, Jain and Buddhist pilgrims is holy Mt.Kailash and lake Manasarovar. Besides flying in to Lhasa, a cheaper means to get there is by four-wheel drive starting from Kathmandu. March to October is the recommended time to visit Tibet.

TIBET TRAVEL UPDATE

The Chinese authorities have recently imposed a new regulation that stipulates that groups have to contain a minimum 5 passengers in order to able to travel in Tibet. Hence all groups of less than 5 persons will not be able to travel to Tibet until this rule changes. This may effect some of our published Group Departures to Tibet. Hence we are offering the 8-Day Tibet Encounter tour as a 'guaranteed' tour starting every Saturday from Kathmandu between the months of April and October. This is the most popular Group Tour to Tibet and there is a high demand enabling us to 'guarantee' this tour.
