Mount Kailash from Dirapu in Tibet

Mount Kailash from Dirapu in Tibet


Isolated for centuries behind the Himalayas in Tibet is a mysterious and mythical mountain,
Mount Kailash, standing 6714m ( 22,028ft ) high.
 The mountain has for more than a thousand years been a central pilgrimage site
 for some of the world's major religions.

 The Kailash trek leads around the sacred peak in 3 to 4 days, following the pilgrims' route.
Though short, this high-altitude trek is not to be undertaken lightly
 - Mount Kailash remains isolated and remote, and getting there is an epic journey in itself.

Also included in the guide is a visit to the lost kingdom of Guge, still almost unknown in the west.
 The ethereal ruined fortress of Tsaparang, Guge's former capital,
is Tibet's greatest Buddhist treasure-house of art and paintings
 - a stunning location not to be missed.

 The Kailash trek and other treks in the region are described in detail.

The guide provides extensive practical information for planning and preparation.
 It covers the key approach routes ( by foot and road ) and return routes to Kathmandu or Lhasa,
as well as historical, cultural and religious background information.

For adventure-seeking trekkers this comprehensive guide opens a door
into the enchanting world of Kailash and western Tibet.
