Saga Dawa Festival 2008 :
April 15 as per Tibetan calendar and June 18 as per Gregorain Calendar.

Saga Dawa marks the day when Buddha Shakyamuni was conceived in the womb of his mother, Queen Mayadevi, gained victory over demons (35 years later) and gained complete enlightenment under Bodhi Tree . It is also said that on this day half a century later, Buddha passed into parinirvana, the ultimate state of peace, at Kushinagara.
Holy Mt. Kailash as seen from Lake Mansarovar

People circulate the flagpole that is down on the ground now at Tharboche ( near kailash) . They pray and throw 'wind horses' (little pieces of colored paper with Buddhist scriptures on them) into the air. They help to remove last year's prayer flags and attach new ones. As a visitor you are almost forced to follow them as they go around time after time. Along the sides, on the slope of the nearby hills, a lot of people are sitting to watch the 'spectacle' and there are musicians, which play all the time on their horns and symbols.
2008 is a special year in Tibetan Buddhism, when pilgrimage is particularly meritorious. During the period of the Saga Dawa month, one circumambulation of the holy mountain is popularly considered to have the merit of a 100 thousand times on top of that to be purifying one life time. At time for the full moon of Saga Dawa more pilgrims than usual visit Kailash. In Tarpochen, at the foot of the holy mountain, there will be a big Buddhist festival. Tarpochen represents the navel of the world and every year Tibetans erect here a giant pole while many other ceremonies and rituals are carried out. This is certainly the most important day for Tibetan pilgrims at Mt. Kailash. You will have more time than usual at Lake Manasarovar so that it is possible to do this kora as well and finally you can extend a visit of Lhasa if you like.

Holy Mount Kailash which is believed to have been formed 30 million years ago when Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most Holy Mt. kailash west Tibet in winter, Lake mansarovar is almost fozenrevered places in the Himalayas.

Mt. Kailash, 6,740 mtr high peak is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, wholly within Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with awesome beauty, with 4 great faces. It is the spiritual centre for four great religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. For the Hindus Mount Kailash is the earthly manifestation of Mt. Meru, their spiritual centre of the universe, described as a fantastic 'world pillar' 84,000 miles high, around which all else revolves, its roots in the lowest hell and its summit kissing the heavens. On the top live their most revered God, Shiva, and his consort Parvati. For the Jains, an Indian religious group, Kailash is the site where their first prophet achieved enlightenment. For the older, more ancient religion of Bon, it is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven.

Spread out on the Tibetan plateau beside Mount Kailash is the giant lake of shifting colors - Lake Mansarovar. Brahma, the creator, had a mind (‘Man’) for the creation of a lake (‘Sarovar’), hence its name. A pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and a bath in the Mansarovar is believed to bring about salvation (Moksha) and washed away all the sins of life.Over the centuries pilgrims have constantly journeyed immense distances to achieve enlightenment or cleanse themselves of sin, braving enormous distances, particularly harsh weather and bandit attacks. People have been visiting Kailash - Mansarovar for centuries. It used to be very hard journey in the past; today Earthbound Expeditions can bring you there with help of Landcrusiors via Kathmandu.

This Kailash Tibet adventure begins with the fly across the Himalaya west into Tibet to Lhasa. Then we drive to Holy Lake Mansarovar. Here you will join the throngs of pilgrims who, for centuries, have converged on this remote southwestern corner of Tibet to circumambulate the sacred mountain, considered to be the center of the universe by Hindus and  Guge landscape, bhoto by Bart ,Holy Mt. Kailash, Tibet tour, incredible landscape in guge kingdomBuddhist alike. Kailash enjoys great popularity the folk religion of Tibet - it is the soul of the country and assures protection for all Tibetans. The fountain head of four great Asian rivers ( Indus, Sutlej, Bramhaputra and Karnali), few mountain reveals Kailash for its mystique, (Above photo of ruins of guge kingdom - Tholing Tsaparang in west Tibet is taken by Mr. Matt, who did mustang trek in Nepal with us in 2007, his more photos can view from link below: http://www.mdnphoto.com/asiatraverse/leg3_nepalgallery/index.php) isolation and prominence, for 3 days you will walk with pilgrims around this almost perfectly symmetrical mountain kailas before the trek drive back into Nepal. Your kailash trek pioneered by Earthbound Expeditions takes you into northern riches of the country where only few trekkers have walked these trials, unchanged over the ages. The encounter with the herders, pilgrims and the local people will be lively and make for precious memory. It is an experience of a lifetime...!
