Trekking Destinations > Tibet
Tibet one of those extraordinary destination where indeed adventure lurks around every corner! Adventure on the road is never short on the beautiful Trans Himalayan drive, through mountain, passes, promising a panorama of a cultural and scenic diversity unsurpassable anywhere.
It culminates on an arid plateau - a variable treasure trove of architectural masterpieces - the Buddhist monasteries of Drepung, once the largest in the country The Jhokhang - a spiritual center, and the awesome palaces of the Dalai Lama - Norbulinga ( the summer palace ) and the Potala (the traditional seat ).
Ancient Barkhor Bazaar still barters the bric - a - brac, in a region that’s not so much a little strange as utterly surreal. The tourist corridor between Zhangmu on the Nepalese border and Lhasa is relatively well-trodden these days, although by no means overcrowded, and offers side trips to the Everest Base Camp.
In the far west of Tibet is mount Kailash, the most sacred mountain in Asia, which is venerated by Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and the followers of the ancient Bon religion. Kailash is an important site for Tibetan and Indian pilgrims who make a 53 km. circuit, or Kora, around the mountain. This circumambulation, clockwise for Buddhist and Hindus and anti-clockwise for Bon followers, is said to erase the sins of a lifetime. The mountain it self is 6714 meters high and with its sheer walls and snow-capped peak is an astounding sight.
