Kailash, the holy mountain that stands at the center of the Buddhist, Hindu, Bon and Jain universes, the earthly manifestation of Mount Meru, is the focus of journeys to western Tibet. To make a circumambulation (kora) of Mount Kailash is to cleanse yourself of the sins of a lifetime.

The remote Kingdom of Guge was establisehed following the 9th century breakup of the Yarlung Empire - the approach is along a rough, winding road through incredible gorges with the Ladakh Himalaya as backdrop. The town of Tsada is dramatically situated on cliffs above the Sutlej - here the monastery of Tholing and the nearby remains of the Guge capital at Tsaparang boast some of the most incredible Buddhist wall murals anywhere.

Travel to this region can be more challenging than other areas - some driving days are long and many roads unpaved and dusty. Guest houses are basic and food options simpler and less varied. For large groups (6+) camping is an option. Travel here is still an adventure and the rewards well worth it.
