Mt. Kailash- Lhasa Tour


Mount Kailash is considered holy by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. In ancient texts, it is referred to as the center of the world. The reason can be understood from the geographical significance of it’s place: within 30 miles radius, are the sources of mighty rivers Indus (north called “Sindhu” in India), Sutlej (in west), Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsang-po in east), and Karnali (largest tributary to the Ganges in south).

Lhasa located at the center of the Tibet Plateau and the bottom of a small basin surrounded by mountains, Lhasa has an elevation of 3,650 meters. The altitude results in the low atmosphere pressure and less oxygen contents in air. The Lhasa River, known as the “merry blue waves,” runs through the snow-covered peaks and gullies of the Nyainqentanglha Mountains, extending 315 km.The river empties into the Yarlung Zangbo River at Quxu, forming a scenic wonder that features blue and white water waves. Inside the city towers the Potala Palace.
