Trip Overview

Mt. Kailash (6714 m) – also known as Tise, Kailasa, or Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows). Since time immemorial it has 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. And for the Buddhists, it represents as a terrestrial projection of the cosmic Mandala of Dyani Buddhas & Bodhisattvas (The Wheel of Life).

A visit to Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar forms the ultimate realization of their spiritual pursuit in life. And for adventure lovers, it offers ruggedness, excitement, solitude, and bliss. All trips are planned to give a wholesome experience of a trip which may be rightly termed a ‘Once-in-a-lifetime’.
