Tibet   From Kathmandu   NST-Tibet #08         15- DAY Mt. KAILASH

Mt. Kailash (6714 m) - also known as Tise, Kailasa or Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows) has since time immemorial been celebrated in many Eastern cosmologies as Mt. Meru, the axis mundi. And as the center of the physical & metaphysical universe, Mt. Meru is sacred to the Jains, the Hindus, the Buddhists and the Bonpos. For the Hindus, the mountain represents the seat of Shiva; for the Buddhists, a terrestrial projection of the cosmic Mandala of Dyani Buddhas & Boddhisatvas....The Wheel of Life.

For the devout pilgrim a visit to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasorovar forms the ultimate realization of their spiritual pursuit in life. And for the adventure lovers it offers ruggedness, excitement, solitude & bliss. All trips are planned to arrive at Mt. Kailash on a full moon day to give all participants a wholesome experience of a trip which may be rightly termed `Once-in-a-lifetime'.
