Everest Base Camp Tour

  of 22 reviews

Mount Everest, known in  Nepal as Sagarmāthā and in Tibet as Chomolungma, is World Highest Peak above sea level,  located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas . The international border between China and Nepal  runs across its summit point. 

The current official elevation of 8,848 m (29,029 ft), recognised by China and Nepal, was established by a 1955 Indian survey and subsequently confirmed by a Chinese survey in 1975.In 2005, China remeasured the rock height of the mountain, with a result of 8844.43 m. There followed an argument between China and Nepal as to whether the official height should be the rock height (8,844 m., China) or the snow height (8,848 m., Nepal). In 2010, an agreement was reached by both sides that the height of Everest is 8,848 m, and Nepal recognises China's claim that the rock height of Everest is 8,844 m.

In 1865, Everest was given its official English name by theRoyal Geographical Society, upon a recommendation by Andrew Wauge , the BritishSurveyor General of India. As there appeared to be several different local names, Waugh chose to name the mountain after his predecessor in the post,Sir George Everest , despite George Everest's objections.

Mt. Kailash Tour (Tibet)

  of 22 reviews

Few mountains in the world rival the grandeur of Mount Kailash (6714m) the famed holy peak in Western Tibet. Kailash has long been an object of worship for four major religions. For the Hindus, it is the domain of Shiva.It is also the abode of Samvara- a multi armed, wrathful deity worshipped in the Chakrasamvara Tantric cycle of Tibetan Buddhism. The Jains of India also revere the mountain as the site at which the first of their saints emancipated. And in the ancient Bon religion of Tibet, Kailash was the sacred nine storey Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Shenrab alighted from heaven. Sprawling below Mount Kailash is the sacred Lake Mansarovar 4,530m (14,950ft ), where a ritual bath will deliver a pilgrim to Brahma's paradise and a drink of its water relinquishes the sins of a hundred lifetimes.
