MT KAILASH IS RECOG­NISED AS THE CEN­TRE of the world in Hin­duism, Ti­betan Bud­dhism, Bon, and Jain­ism. A pyra­mid-shaped moun­tain with near-sym­met­ri­cal sides, it reaches 6,656 me­tres above sea level and is a favourite site for kora, a cir­cum­nav­i­ga­tion of a sa­cred moun­tain. Now Ti­bet Travel is of­fer­ing a 15-day tour that starts in Lhasa, be­fore launch­ing off to the holy sites of the west in­clud­ing Kailash. Call­ing at Shi­gatse and the more sec­u­lar sight of Ever­est Base Camp, you then spend three days trekking in the shadow of Kailash. Much of the ac­com­mo­da­tion is in­side monas­ter­ies, adding to the spir­i­tual tone of the itin­er­ary. Trips start from US$1,880 and dates are avail­able from April to Oc­to­ber.
