Mount Kailash (6,714m) is a very popular holy mountain in Tibet and is also known by the name of Tise, Kailash or Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows). Mt Meru (Kailash) is sacred to the Hindus, Buddhists, Janis, and the Bonpos taken as the centre of the physical and metaphysical universe. For the Hindus, the mountain represents the seat of Shiva. For the Buddhists, a terrestrial projection of the cosmic mandala of Dyani Buddhas and Boddhisatvas (which represents the Wheel of Life).

For the devout pilgrim, a visit to Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar forms the ultimate realization of their spiritual pursuit, and for the adventure-lovers it offers rugged beauty, remoteness and solitude. If you tour to Mount Kailash during the month of May it gives you the opportunity to witness the Buddhist festival of Saga Dawa while most of the other trips are planned to arrive at Mt. Kailash during the full moon period to give all participants a rare experience.

This tour offers rigorous overland driving, trekking and camping, passing the remote and wild western Tibet, in altitudes between 2,745m to 5,600m.
