27 Day Program - May 16th – June 11th"
20 Day Program - May 23th- June 11th
Via Beijing, China
In 2020, I will lead my last pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash, the sacred mountain in Western Tibet
that is the source of the four holiest rivers of the Indian Sub-Continent. In recent years, I have led my Tibet Tours, meeting and departing in Nepal… Since this will be my last Kailash Pilgrimage, I’m confident this trip will be a fill... , so I decided that entering Tibet from Beijing, and continuing to Mt. Kailash from Lhasa would make for a better program… Flights in and out of Beijing are less expensive and more convenient from most places.
We have this 27-day program which is the identical program that I have led previously through the years, and this year, I had a couple of friends that needed to reduced itinerary to 20 days. The shorter program arrives in Beijing exactly one week later, and travels 4 days later to meet with the earlier group in Lhasa… from there, everyone travels together for the Pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash. The earlier group (27 day) has the advantage of exploring additional time in Tibet, and gradually getting acclimated to the higher altitudes.
NOTE: I realize that most travelers are concerned about the high altitude in Tibet, and especially at Mt. Kailash, and that conce rn is justified… however, I have learned over the years to present the program in a way that allows every guest ample time to acclimate. This year will be no exception.
After the 28 and the 20 day groups meet in Lhasa, we spend a few days visiting the sacred places of there, and inTsetang, to acclimatize to the 12,000 ft. altitude, Then we will drive to Kailash for our traditional (Korra) 4-day walk-around. All accommodations are "best available", and some may be considered rustic - yet authentic. You'll be provided 3 meals daily, and have a support staff with us during our entire pilgrimage. NOTE: Hundreds of visitors a year come to this place simply to submerge themselves into the energy, staying behind to meditate and visit the sacred lake and temples while others do the walk... We may have some in our own group that are complete in themselves without the (walk around). Everyone will be well cared for and you're in good hands with our tour operators, local guides and Lama Glenn the entire journey.
On the return program, we will drive back to Lhasa and fly to Beijing to end the pilgrimage,
or continue on to a 5-day optional post-tour that will be announced later.
