Journey to Sacred Mt Kailas - Saga Dawa Festival
May 12 - June 5
Location:
Tibet

Tibet, the ancient 'Roof of the World' and the mystical Buddhist 'Kingdom of the Snows', has for centuries evoked images of a lost Shangri La. To this day, its stunning Himalayan views, high plateau, beautiful Buddhist monasteries and extraordinary people remain one of the world's great travel experiences.

Mt Kailas is said to be the mythical Mt 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 mystic. Our program includes a week long journey from Lhasa (via Gyantse and Shigatse) across the grain of the vast Tibetan plateau. We plan to reach Mt Kailas at the time of the Saga Dawa festival, held on the May/June full moon, 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 Mt Kailas and a sojourn around the shores of Lake Manasarovar following the path of pilgrims on their quest for spiritual enlightenment. There are also options for the non-trekker to savour this spectacular sacred environment before returning to the Kathmandu Valley.

In this retreat, we will learn to listen to the natural rhythms and language of the body through Hatha Yoga and meditation. As the intelligence of the body awakens, we will gain access to a depth where opening is more receptive than active, where internal strength is naturally derived and where our yoga comes alive. Our practice will become inquisitive and nourishing as we explore the dynamic interplay of action and receptivity, form and intuition.
