Mount Kailash

Anyone for Mount Kailash. Really affordable. Inclusive of airfare to Kathmandu, all inland travel in Kathmandu right up to Mount Kailash and back, most meals plus accommodation ...... excludes airport tax/fuel charge, yak rental ...... the entire trip should cost below RM8,000. I will strongly advise to make the figure to RM10,000, the extra RM2,000 for contingencies. Travelling will be 4 to a jeep and an entourage of cooks, porters will accompany the entire trip. It will be a 17 day trip and expected date of departure is 19 June 2008

"Situated in the southwestern part of Tibet bordering the Kumaon hills and Nepal, is Mount Kailash. It is a supremely sacred mountain, cosmology connected with Mount Meru, the great mythological mountain that forms the axis of the world system. Being a central watershed of Asia, it has always been the most sacred of mountains for Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bons. Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt Kailash wipes out the sins of lifetime, 108 guarentees enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Manasarovar lake will deliver a pilgrim to Brahma’s paradise and a drop drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundred lifetimes."
