Overland Tour to Guge

The route leads through a magnificent mountain area, past many Tibetan villages. The tour offers you spectacular landscape of Tibet and takes you sacred Mt. Kailash, which Hindus and Buddhists view as the “center of the world”. The mighty rock dome of Kailash comes closer. Together with pilgrims from far and wide you follow the trail (Parikrama) across the Dolma La (5600m), which is adorned with countless prayer flags. It takes three days to circumambulate the snow-covered cupola of the 6714m tall mountain. In Tibetan tradition you will conclude this pilgrimage in Tirthapuri – which is one of the most important pilgrim destinations along with Kailash and Lake Manasarover.

Almost surreal appears the canyon-like valley of the Sutlej. Imbedded lie the ruins of Tsaparang, the capital of the former kingdom of Guge. After visiting the 900 year-old site our drive through the canyon of the Sutlej starts long the north route to Lhasa. The light and shadows of the summer clouds make for a magical atmosphere, dip the barren vastness in tinges of pastel green, yellow deep blue and violet. En route, we visit two of the most sacred temples of Tibet: Tshilunpo in Shigatse and Kumbum in Gyantse. In Lhasa, the spiritual and secular center Tibet’s, visited by many pilgrims.
