Lhasa with Mount Kailash Tour

This is a trip to take you from Lhasa to the west of Tibet Mount Kailash overland tour

This is a trip to take you from Lhasa to the west of Tibet, Nagri and then return to Lhasa. 2-day Lhasa sightseeing lets you have a general understanding of the history of Tibet, the humanities and the lives of the local people. And then you will head to the world's highest peak, the Mount Everest via Gyangze, Shigatse, and Tingri. The last but not least, you will reach the Mt.Kailash. Kailash in Tibetan means the treasure of the snow-capped mountain. Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, Bon - native religion in Tibet and Jainism recognize it as the center of the world. Indians also think that this is the center of the world. They think Shiva lives here, who has the strongest mana and the highest position.

At the same time, the upper reaches of the Indus and the Ganges originates from here. So, around the Mt.Kailash, you can see a large number of Indian pilgrims. Mt.Kailash is not the highest mountain in the area, but only the peak of its year-round snow can shine with a strange light in the sun shining, eye-catching eyes. The distribution of the four walls of the peak is very sharp symmetry, the shape of the crown pyramid. The special mountain shape is very different from the surrounding mountains. For centuries, the Mt.Kailash has been a fascinating place in the minds of pilgrims and explorers, but no one has ever been able to board the mountain, or no one has ever dared to break the center of the world.
