Its heavenly heights rising to 6714 m., Mt.Kailas is sacred to many faith. The Hindus revere it as the holy abode of Lord Shiva, while the Budhists regard it as a projection of the Cosmic Mandala.

Far away from the rush and roar of cities, one can be within the pinnacle of Nature, in perfect communion with the cosmos, and enjoy inner peace,  with oneself and the whole Universe.

This  unique program is conducted by Yoga Toursindia, assisted by both Raju Thapa, a highly educated and experienced guide and Anthony Sadasiva. Spiritual sites as Lake Manasarovar (4560 m) are stunningly eye-catching and elevating, as the Himalayas tower in the background. Equally invigorating is Lake Gouri Kund (5608 m),  a centre of worship as well. As a special treat, we will visit  the Ronbuk Monastery and Mt. Everest!
