Kailash , also known as Tise, Kailasa & Kang Rinpoche(Jewel of the Snows), Few mountains rival Holy Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar for its mystique. Isolation, beauty and prominence. It is considered to be the ‘Center of the Universe’ by Hindus, Buddhists, Jain and Bonpo and its flanks give birth to four great Asian rivers the Indus, Brahmaputra , Ganges and Sutlej . Tibetans believe that it is the residence of Demchog, a fierce looking tantric deity who lives there with his consort, Dorje Phagmo. For the Tibetans also, it is a particularly special place in that their poet saint Milarepa, spent several years here meditating in a cave.

Trip Highlights

    Tibet ‘s capital Lhasa (elevation 3,700 m) is a cultural city with a history going back 1,300 years. The magnificent Potala Palace , former seat of the Dalai Lamas, presides over the city. Built in 1645 on the top of a hill, the palace contains 1,000 rooms, 10,000 shrines and 200,000 religious statues. The old city revolves around the Jokhang Temple and the quaint Barkhor market that surrounds it. The Jhokhang, built in the seventh century, is the holiest Buddhist shrine in Tibet . Its mural paintings, finely worked golden roofs and other works of art are something to see. At a little distance from the old city core, Lhasa is also a modern capital of concrete high-rises, fancy department stores and wide boulevards.
