14 Days Lhasa -Mt.Kailash -Lhasa Tour

Vast, scarcely populated and with an average altitude of over 4500m, Ngari is a frontier in one of the remotest corners of Asia.This adventure tour will take you deeper into this mysterious land. Besides the main attractions of sacred Mt. Kailashand Lake Manasarovar, two of the most far-flung and legendary travel destinations in the world, you will also visit the otherworldly ruins of the ancient Guge kingdom at Traparang, one of Asia’s unknown wonders. For those not overly fussed by the spiritual significance of Mt. Kailash, going to one of the most isolated and beautiful corners of the globe is likely to be an attraction in itself.

Arrive in Lhasa, get the first impression of Tibetan daily life Welcome to the roof of the world. Your Tibet journey starts with a warm Tibetan style greeting from your local tour guide who will present you with Hada (traditional Tibetan scarves). Then be escorted to your hotel in Lhasa city at the comfort of your own private vehicle. For most of the way, you would follow the Kyichu River and then see Tibetan homes with their trapezoid shaped windows and fluttering prayer flags and Tibetans walking beside the roads wearing their distinctive national costumes. You can have a comfort stop near Nietang Buddha where a giant statue of Buddha has been carved out of a stone cliff-face centuries ago and then stay at the hotel after arrival for adapting to the high attitude. It is helpful to take things easy for the first few days and try to drink some water. Read more
