Highlights of Myanmar

Everything went to plan and again WE gave us a wonderful holiday. “with World Expeditions you will be travelling with like-minded people.” Its true! On every trip we found that the people were of a similar mindset. I don’t know how its done, but others in the party agreed that that had been their experience also. Lovely to do business with World Expeditions yet again.

Journey to Mount Kailash

Mount Kailash is said to be the mythical Mount Meru, the centre of the universe. It is revered in both Hindu and Buddhist legends, while its location, close to the sources of the four main rivers that flow across the Indian sub-continent, contributes to its mystique. Our adventure includes a week long journey from Lhasa (via Gyantse and Shigatse) across the vast Tibetan plateau. We plan to reach Mount Kailash at the time of the Saga Dawa festival when many thousands of pilgrims from throughout Tibet gather to pay homage to the mountain. After the festive celebrations we will undertake a three day trek around Mount Kailash before a final night's camp alongside the shores of Lake Manasarovar. This trip, which we have operarted successfully for many years, is without doubt one of the world's most compelling adventures.
