This yogic journey to Tibet’s sacred Mount Kailash a unique auspicious gathering. There is no age restriction, but prospective guests should be reasonably fit and mentally prepared for the inevitable challenges that travel in Tibet entails. The itinerary will as much as possible accord with what is shown in this prospectus, but changes in scheduling or hotels are always possible. Due to the unpredictability of Chinese policies, it cannot be guaranteed, for example, that we will be allowed into Mount Kailash’s Inner Sanctuary.


The comprehensive trip fee of $8,000 (USD) includes domestic airfare from Chengdu to Lhasa and Shigatse to Chengdu. All accommodations on the trip are on a twin share basis. A supplementary fee of $568 (USD) is payable by those who desire single accommodations and individual tents throughout the journey. All meals are included on the trip, including complimentary bottled water. All land transportation is covered throughout the trip. All entry fees and permit costs in Tibet are included throughout the trip, as well as the cost of yak support. In addition to the services of Mark Whitwell, Ian Baker, Eliska Vaea, and Rosalind Atkinson, the journey to Mount Kailash will also be supported by expert Tibetan guides, drivers, and a dedicated chef who will provide highly nutritious ‘yogic’ cuisine.

The comprehensive trip fee DOES NOT include the cost of international airfare to and from Chengdu; China visa fees; travel insurance; alcoholic or soft drinks; laundry; activities not shown in the trip prospectus; and tips for local guides and drivers.

Mark’s presentation of the yoga of Krishnamacharya as modified by the Krishnamurthis is like a sharp knife cutting through a dense mound of bullshit, and what remains is compelling in its simplicity and its humanity.
