Kailash Mahatirtha Yatra to the forbidden kingdom begins with a sweeping
flight to Lhasa- "Roof of the World". Lhasa is one of the
highest cities in the world, a towering 3,760 meters on the banks of the
Lhasa River. In Lhasa, you will be visiting interesting places like the
busy markets of Barkhor, Jokhong Monastery, Sera Monastery, Drepung Temple
monasteries, and Potala Palace, official residence of Dalai Lama, the
exiled spiritual leader of Tibetans.
Lhasa is also good for acclimatised with climate and
culture. After Lhasa our Kailash Mahatirtha Yatra proceeds further through
the famed city of Gyantse, Shigatse and finally reach Mt.Kailash. Mt.
Kailash is a compelling, dome-shaped peak, rising above a desolately
beautiful 13,000 ft plateau of rainbow-coloured rocks. It is holiest of
all holy peaks revered by millions of Hindus, Jain and Buddhists as the
abode of Lord Shiva. This peak is the earthly manifestation of Mount
Sumeru or Meru, as it is also known. Sumeru is believed to be the axis of
the universe. All these factors make this mountain a very special spot in
this universe enshrined with great grandeur.
This Kailash Mahatirth Yatra ends with a holy
