You will view amazing scenery in several places in Kham, in particular the dazzling Mt.Kawa Karpo (6780m). You will then trek through more scenery, including glaciers and hot springs, visiting also several monasteries, and the famous Derge printing house. The 22,000-foot peak represents the mind emanation of Buddha, while sacred Mt. Kailas, located hundreds of miles away in western Tibet, symbolizes the body of Buddha.

Although linked in spiritual tradition, the two mountains could not be more different in their physical environments. Kawakarpo anchors one of a series of north-south ranges that divide the plunging, parallel river valleys of the Mekong, Yangtze and Salween. In sharp contrast to the stark landscape surrounding Kailas, Kawakarpo is surrounded by lush semi-tropical forest, home to over 1,000 bird species, an estimated 2,000 endemic plant species and such exotic mammals as forest leopard, barking deer, and red panda. Diversity and brilliance extend into the multitude of ethnic groups, which include Khampa Tibetans.
