Tibet & Nepal – 14 days – May 22 - June 4, 2020
Mt. Kailash 14 days – June 2nd – 15th, 2020
Circling the Sacred Mountain
Tibet with Kailash Option 2020
In the spring of 2020 (May-June) I will lead my last pilgrimage to Kailash. My preference is that all participants arrive in Nepal on the first day (new moon) of the fourth tibetan month (I.e. The new moon of May.As with most of my Tibet trips, we will meet up in Nepal, and spends four nights / three days there to acclimatize from the long flights, and also to acquire our China visa and Tibet trip. In Nepal we will visit the areas sacred toTibetan Buddhism, such as Baudhanath, Swayambhunath and Parping, before flying from Kathmandu to Gongkar Airport in Central Tibet.
Originally I had thought to only offer the full itinerary Nepal/Tibet/Kailash to participants, but the first eight days in Central Tibet follows a route that is common to my general pilgrimage to the Tsetang and Lhasaareas, and some friends who cannot come to Kailash asked that we allow them to join us for the Nepal and Central Tibet portions of the pilgrimage. Basically the itinerary remains the same until we arrive at Old Tingri, which has a view of Everest in the distance.
After Tingri part of the group will drive to the Nepal border and return to Kathmandu. Those continuing to Mt Kailash will undertake the three day drive from Tingri to Lake Manasrover,spend two nights by the sacred lake, and then move up to the town of Darchen, below Kailash, for two nights. By this time everyone should be sufficiently acclimatized to the altitude to begin the
three day walk around the sacred mountain.
If by the time we begin our walkaround of the sacred mountain some of the members feel unable to do the walk, or came
just for the energy and experieence... we will make provisions for them to stay in town and daily visit and meditate in what the Theosophical Society calls "The Vesak Valley," known to Tibetans as Chak Nay, meaning "Place of Homage." Many Tibetans come here in spring and offer prostrations and meditation for weeks and even longer, before undertaking the walk around of the sacred mountain on the full moon of Vesak. Ancient texts state that Maitreya Buddha himself often makes an appearance in visions of the karmically ripened practitioners during this time period.
After our Kailash walkaround we will make the three day drive to the Tibetan border at Kyerong, and back to Kathmandu.
