Xinjiang-Tibet Tour from Lhasa to Mt. Kailash and onto Xinjiang is for those who are looking to go well off the beaten path in Tibet and into Xinjiang, the Chinese region of Central Asia. This adventure starts with a few days exploring the capital city of Lhasa and all the major monasteries and temples there. From Lhasa, you will then go to the turquoise colored holy lake of Yamdrok before visiting the nice town of Gyantse. You will then explore the massive Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Shigatse, Tibet’s second largest city. After Shigatse, you will start exploring the vast wilderness of Western Tibet starting in Saga. From Saga, you will go to Lake Manasarovar, which is holy to both Tibetans and Hindu’s. Then you will spend a full day gazing out to Mt. Kailash, Tibet’s most famous holy mountain. After Mt. Kailash, you will then wander around the ruins of the ancient Kingdom of Guge. From there, you will continue through the rugged wilderness until you reach Kargilik (Yecheng), the first major town in Xinjiang.
