Tibet

Mysterious places are rare to be found in the world, but Tibet is an exception. With an average elevation of 14,000 feet, Tibet is literally the highest nation on earth. Nearly half the world’s population lives downstream from Tibet with five of Asia’s great rivers including the Indus, Mekong and Brahmaputra having their headwaters in the “Roof of the World”.

Since then, a paramount objective of Tibetan culture has been the cultivation of a good heart and a calm, clear mind. Embrace life in the same way Tibetans view Mount Everest, “From the other side”.

This non trekking trip starts with an incredible mountain flight over the Himalayas from Kathmandu to Lhasa. After time to acclimatize and explore the Potala Palace and other sights of Lhasa. On your return to Kathmandu you divert to the region of ‘Mount Everest’ which is simply called Sagarmatha, the “sky head” by the Nepalese. Shortly after leaving Shegar, we head south over the Pang La (5150m) towards the main Himalayan range. The view from the top is incredible with uninterrupted views stretching from Makalu to Shishapangma. Below the pass, Everest initially is hidden from view, but as we turn the corner into the Rongbuk Valley it reappears, more impressive than ever.

High on the remote western Tibetan plateau, in the northernmost region of the Himalayas, sits the mystical mountain - Mount Kailash. The very fact one considers making a pilgrimage to Kailash and Manasarovar is considered a “call from within”! Thousands of Sages, ordinary mortals, philosophers and even Gods have submerged in blissful trance at the very sight of Kailash's divine grandeur!

  • I had a wonderful time! I can’t even begin to describe it, but let me mention that Cordelia was great as was the Nepalese staff. I feel like I made some good friends, as well as had some amazing experiences. Back home, I wonder: was that Heaven? And were they angels?
