    This is one of the greatest Himalayas adventures. In four weeks you will travel almost the entire length of the Himalayas and Karakorum mountain ranges. On this route, there will be enough time for browsing in the bazaar of Kashgar, visiting some of the oldest monasteries in Tibet, and enjoying the magnificent view of West Tibet by crossing from the elevated desserts of the Changtang to the fearful Taklamakan (the Death Sea) with its charming oasis and friendly peoples. We will start our journey in Kunming and ride to Lijiang, the World Heritage Naxi Town, in 15 days we will be riding on the ancient caravan trails, visiting small villages and Tibetan monasteries. Continue the journey to the holy city Lhasa, where you have spent some days to explore the different lifestyle and existing culture of the roof of the world. The adventure continues from the holy city Lhasa, where you have spent some days to explore the different lifestyle and existing culture of the roof of the world. Monasteries and shrines are the centre of the religious faith, which plays an important role in their day to day life since from thousand years. In the following days this journey we will cross the great Chang Tang (Northern Plateau) into far-west Tibet through the wildest land on earth. Meeting nomads dwelling in low, black tents, tend flocks of sheep and goats as well as herds of the yak. Setting up our camp site at the foot of the extraordinary peak of Mount Kailash is the highlight of the journey. Pilgrims of Buddhists, Bon, Hindus and Jains all come to pay their homage to this sacred mountain. Further within the heavily eroded sandstone canyon and valleys of the upper Yarlung River are numerous ruins of ancient cities that once comprised the kingdom of Guge, temples in that area are still intact and contain exquisite murals and decorative motifs with a history of more than ten thousand years. Then we ride to Ngari-the largest city in the far west Tibet, climb some of the highest passes and cross some beautiful valleys we will follow the western edge of the Taklimakan Desert to Kashgar.
