Rooftop of the World

High Degree of Physical fitness required
Minimum 10 pax group

With an average elevation of 4900 meters ASL, Tibet is the highest region of the world & is therefore referred to as the Roof Top of the world. Being remote & with limited access till recently it is a travellers paradise with tall mountains, barren landscape & a strong religious background. Dotted with monasteries perched on high hilltops Buddhism & it’s culture is dominating but meaningful and can be termed as the living muesuem. The second part of the tour takes you to the famous pilgrimage area of Mt. Kailash and the lake of Mansarover. It is generally accepted as the apex of Hindu axis and the abode of Lord Shiva. The barren windswept & bleak area sees many pilgrims devoutly going around the lake. You travel for days on this remote plateau with chance encounters of nomads herding their sheep & yaks. As the tour is through Nepal you get to see Hinduism being lived & practised in daily life. The famous wooden temples at Bhaktapur’s durbar square reflect the art & culture of this only ( till recently) Hindu kingdom in the world.
