Nepal + Tibet bark tour around Mount Kailas, 16 days

This route allows you to avoid arranging Chinese visas and permits in advance. We arrange everything on arrival in Nepal, in the capital city of Kathmandu. The registration process takes 4-5 working days, and your presence at the delivery of documents is obligatory. While the permissions and visa are processed, you get acquainted with the capital of Nepal and its surroundings, visit ancient temples, stupas and monasteries, get acquainted with the culture and traditions of Nepal. We will see the Lama (Buddhist teacher) and ask for a blessing for the favorable passage of the Kora around Mount Kailas. It will also be possible to order a puja (service). After visiting the holy places of Nepal and getting all the necessary documents, we will go to Tibet. The culmination of the route – the passage of the bark around Mount Kailas – is a 3-day hike at high altitude.

In Tibet we get answers to our deepest questions: “Who am I?”, “Why do I live?”, “How do I learn to love?”, “How do I be Happy?”, “How do I be more effective and realize my maximum potential?”, “What is my purpose?”

The soul finds peace, it comes home. Apparently, this is the main thing that has attracted pilgrims from all over the world for centuries. There is a certain source in Tibet that helps you move to a higher level of Awareness. What they call the source: Buddha, Shiva, Kailas, Meru, God, Samadhi, Nirvana – it doesn’t matter. It is a catalyst that accelerates the evolution of the individual Soul. Having had this experience, we move on, carrying it within us.

Everyone who has been to Tibet speaks of great inner transformations. Our personal experience confirms: people become cleaner, quieter, calmer, happier, more loving and accepting. Fears and worries go away, there is more confidence in life. New abilities and superpowers are discovered. Seeing this, other Seekers also rush to Tibet.

On this journey you will make a crusade around Mount Kailas, the most powerful place of power on our planet. In places of power, we enter a special information-energy portal where we can experience higher states of Consciousness. There are special – “reference” – vibrations in places of power. Such vibrations can be achieved through prolonged meditations or through realized Gurus. In places of power a person can enter into resonance with these frequencies without much effort. As a result, our habits, priorities, ways of thinking, behavior change…

Asura Cave, where Guru Padmasambhava
spent a long time practicing tantric practices and meditation. The Great Master has reached a very high level of spiritual development here.

Today we will arrive at the place of power – the sacred Lake Manasarovar (4557 meters) – a lake with “living water”! Here you can meditate on the shore of a lake overlooking Mount Kailash, and tune in for a 3-day mountain circumambulation (kora).

Also in the evening you can take a hot bath with healing mineral water (optional).

Lake Manasarovar is mentioned in the Indian epic Ramayana. Hindus believe that Manasarovar is the soul of the god Brahma. Shiva and his wife Parvati are believed to have washed themselves here. Another legend says that Lake Manasarovar was the first earthly creation that Brahma created in his mind. Buddhists believe that Manasarovar is the legendary lake where the gods carried the Buddha after birth to wash him.

Overnight at a gesthouse on Lake Manasarovar.

Day 11. Lake Manasarovar. Chiu Monastery. Lake Rakshastal. Darchen.

Today you can wash in the sacred Lake Manasarovar, it will be cold, but if you are particularly willing you can do it.

Also today we will visit Chiu (“bird”) Monastery, which sits on either side of a cliff overlooking Lake Manasarovar. The monastery is built over the cave of Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche, the teacher who brought Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th century). The Precious Master spent three years in meditation in the cave and, according to one version, realized a rainbow body in it. It also houses a lifetime sculpture of Chomdente Buddha.
Transfer to Rakshastal Lake, the “demonic lake” which is located just three meters away from the sacred water of Manasarovar. But it’s a completely different body of water.
According to legend, a demon meditated for ten days near this very body of water. The ten-headed Ravana cut off one head every day and threw it to Shiva. When the demon had one, last head left, the god Shiva softened his anger and gave the petitioner the power he craved. There is another tale. According to legend, the demon meditated by the dead lake for ten days waiting for the coveted Parvati. But Shiva’s wife never lavished the unfortunate demon with her attention. She didn’t show up.
Tibetans don’t like to stop by this lake – a bit afraid of the place. Nevertheless it is beautiful, and we can stop by if we wish.

Transfer to Dharchhen, a town at the foot of Mount Kailas.

Accommodation in Darcena in a 3* hotel.

After Shivatsal cemetery up to the top of Green Tara pass symbolically our soul lives through the state of bordeaux, there is a scanning of karma, a feeling of waiting for the results after a fateful exam, the gods are testing the human soul to decide what will be its future destiny. The top of the pass is a place of celebration, a long-awaited symbolic new birth takes place here.
From the top of the pass, there are views of Karma’s Axe Mountain. The axe of karma finally cuts off the old karma and one feels the beginning of a new life.

  • 1 option to Kathmandu by helicopter ($1,400 for 5 people);
  • 2 option to Kathmandu by jeep for about 7 hours.

Attention! Driving a jeep on Nepali roads is not as comfortable as driving on Tibetan highways in a Chinese minibus. In this regard, look out for the opportunity to fly to Kathmandu by helicopter almost from the border itself. The asking price is $1,400 (USD) for five passengers. The issue is resolved with the guide well in advance.

Overnight at 3-4* hotel in Kathmandu near Boudhanath Stupa.

Day 16. Kathmandu. Boudhanath Stupa. Vacation. Shopping. The flight home.

Boudhanath Stupa – a place with amazing energy. At this holy place we will conclude our journey to the places of power.
It is the oldest and largest stupa. Buddhists from all over the world come here to visit, including the most famous, movie actor Richard Gere. Here from early morning till late evening people walk around the Stupa – this ritual of going around the holy place is called kora. While circumambulating the Stupa, believers recite mantras and make prostrations. It purifies karma and also our heart and mind.
Once at the Stupa, everyone, regardless of their faith, feels a sense of belonging to the flow of Love and Power that has been going on here for centuries.
One of the main relics of the Boudhanath stupa is the ashes of the body of Shakyamuni Buddha, the founder of the world religion. The second relic – it is not so obvious, only the “initiated” – the Tibetan Lamas (Gurus) know about it. It is a statue of the guardian of the stupa itself and the space around it. She
she grants all wishes.
You may or may not believe that. In our experience, it works. After fulfilling a few wishes, you begin to understand the meaning of the expression, “Fear your wishes – they come true!”. Make wishes at a certain place that we will show you. The Bouda neighborhood is home to dozens of Buddhist monasteries, as well as restaurants, cafes and souvenir stores.
