Brief

This is our most comprehensive Tibet group tour, specially designed for adventurous travelers to gain deeper spiritual insight on the Tibetan plateau and experience firsthand Tibet’s best natural wonders.

After acclimatizing in Lhasa, you will drive west across the vast plains with spectacular view of the Himalayans to the south and the Trans-Himalayans to the north. Stopping along some of Tibet’s most spiritual sites like Tashi Lhunpo, Yamdrok Lake and the Kumbum Stupa, you’ll gain an understanding of Buddhism’s impact on Tibet before the magnificence of Mt. Kailash is unveiled.

For thousands of years, Mt.Kailash has been the pilgrimage destination of Buddhism, Bon, Hindu and Jainism worshippers alike. At an altitude of 6714 meters, Gangkar Ti-se, as it is known in Tibetan, has perennial snow cover and is the focal point of all travel to western Tibet.
Pilgrims travel to this sacred mountain to complete a spiritual circuit, as it is believed that it will wash away their sins.

In addition to the varied landscapes, wildlife abounds in Western Tibet. Along the route, you will be able to see herds of wild ass, gazelle, Hodgson’s antelope, marmots and different species of geese from the window of your 4x4.

After spending three days trekking from monastery to monastery around Mt. Kailash trekking, you’ll be absolved of all your sins. From there we’ll drive to Manasarovar Lake and then journey to the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest, and stay overnight to enjoy a sunrise you will never forget.

If you’re looking for a tour that is cost effective, combines the best Tibet has to offer spiritually and naturally and stories that will last you a lifetime, then this is the tour for you.

{{ goConfig.showPrice(currency + lowestPrice, lang)}}
Brief

This is our most comprehensive Tibet group tour, specially designed for adventurous travelers to gain deeper spiritual insight on the Tibetan plateau and experience firsthand Tibet’s best natural wonders.

After acclimatizing in Lhasa, you will drive west across the vast plains with spectacular view of the Himalayans to the south and the Trans-Himalayans to the north. Stopping along some of Tibet’s most spiritual sites like Tashi Lhunpo, Yamdrok Lake and the Kumbum Stupa, you’ll gain an understanding of Buddhism’s impact on Tibet before the magnificence of Mt. Kailash is unveiled.

For thousands of years, Mt.Kailash has been the pilgrimage destination of Buddhism, Bon, Hindu and Jainism worshippers alike. At an altitude of 6714 meters, Gangkar Ti-se, as it is known in Tibetan, has perennial snow cover and is the focal point of all travel to western Tibet.
Pilgrims travel to this sacred mountain to complete a spiritual circuit, as it is believed that it will wash away their sins.

In addition to the varied landscapes, wildlife abounds in Western Tibet. Along the route, you will be able to see herds of wild ass, gazelle, Hodgson’s antelope, marmots and different species of geese from the window of your 4x4.

After spending three days trekking from monastery to monastery around Mt. Kailash trekking, you’ll be absolved of all your sins. From there we’ll drive to Manasarovar Lake and then journey to the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest, and stay overnight to enjoy a sunrise you will never forget.

If you’re looking for a tour that is cost effective, combines the best Tibet has to offer spiritually and naturally and stories that will last you a lifetime, then this is the tour for you.
