Bhutan: The Land of Thunder Dragon / Itinerary

Bhutan is known the world over as “The Last Shangri La”. A visitor to this land of incredible natural beauty can sense the serenity and harmony of the country and its people as soon as you land.

The Government of Bhutan recognizes that tourism is a worldwide phenomenon and an important means of achieving socio-economic development. However, it also understands that the indiscriminate growth of tourism would be a disaster both environmentally and socially.

Therefore the Government has adopted a very cautious approach to growth of tourism since 1974, when Bhutan was opened to tourists. The Bhutanese tourism industry is based on principle of sustainability and on the principle that tourism must be environmentally and ecologically friendly, socially and culturally acceptable and economically viable.

Expedition to Kailash Mansarovar / Itinerary

With an average altitude over 3,500 m, Tibet is often referred to as “the roof of the world”. Lying north to the great Himalayan Range that separates it from its neighbors India, Nepal and Bhutan, much of Tibet is high altitude desert. With its spectacular mountain scenery, Buddhist culture and the strong Chinese presence in the area, Tibet is a remarkable place to visit.

Lhasa is the heart and soul of Tibet. The medieval push and shove of crowds, the street performers and the stalls hawking everything from prayer flags to jewel-encrusted yak skulls all make up an exotic brew that few newcomers can resist. The best time of year to travel in Tibet is from May-beginning November. Despite the high altitude of the Tibetan Plateau, the daytime temperatures are quite mild. Between April-November the average temperature ranges from 15-25 degrees Celsius and the skies are generally clear and blue. The nights, however, can become cold with temperatures dropping below 0 degree Celsius.

Pilgrimage to Mount Kailash & Lake Manasarovar, is considered to be the most sacred pilgrimage by the Hindus, Buddhists, Jains & Bonpos. Mt. Kailash is known as Ghang Rinpoche “Jewel of Snow” to Tibetans and they consider it as the “Naval of the world”. For Buddhists, Mt. Kailash is the “Abode of Arhats” (those who have attained paradise). Bonpos consider, Shanrab their founder, descended from the heavens on this mountain. The Hindus consider Mt. Kailash as the “Centre of the universe” & the abode of Lord Shiva & Parvati.

South of Mt. Kailash, there are the two lakes at the base of Mt. Gurla Mandhata, viz Lake Manasarovar & Rakshas Tal. Rakshas Tal, the smaller lake, is considered to be inauspicious & Manasarovar is considered most sacred. Hindus believe that Gods descend from heaven to have a bath in this holy lake. Buddhists believe that Queen Maya had a bath in this holy lake before giving birth to Lord Buddha. The glaciers of Mt. Kailash & Mt. Gurla Mandhata feed both these lakes.
