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 you of the sins of a lifetime. Manasarovar is an incredibly beautiful lake, usually cobalt blue, though it can turn into an angry, churning black during storms. The remote Kingdom of Guge was established 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.Expeditions to this region can be more challenging than other areas -some driving days are long and the roads unpaved and dusty.
