Our journey across the heart of Kham to Lhasa, the "Holy City" follows ancient mule caravan trade routes. Starting at Dartsedo, our gateway and border post with China, we skirt our way along the Sichuan-Tibet Highway through mountainous terrain and river valleys to the historical towns of Tawu, Kanze, Dege and Chamdo. From Chamdo we follow the southern route via Kongpo region and the Yarlung Tsangpo Valley to Lhasa, the Forbidden City.
We visit all the important monasteries in Kham belonging to different schools of Tibetan Buddhism including the sacred Katok Monastery of Nyingmapa School believed to have been miraculously built by Guru Rinpoche in early 8th century. The journey is rugged and the facilities en route basic.
