Nepal and Himalayan chain to the north, Bangladesh and Bay of Bengal to the east, Tibet and Bhutan to North east, Arabian sea to the west, and the India Ocean to the south roughly define the geographical shape of India roughly in the shape of a triangular peninsula. Beside the Arabian Sea, its western border is defined exclusively by Pakistan. In between all these the landscape is unimaginable. This has set apart a big chunk of the continent in South Asia.

The nature has endowed India with mountain ranges, national parks, sea beaches, swift rivers and most of all diverse culture and people of every shades and color. It has everything for everyone in its own way. The distance from north to the south is 3200 km. North India has largest area that has lakes in Jammu and Kashmir to the north in the mountain and fertile land of Punjab to the west and the Himalayan foothills of Uttar Pradesh and the Ganges river valley to the East. Apart from the vibrating culture of Gujarat and Maharashtra, Goa located in the west coast is famous for sea beaches. The land along the coast is typically lush with rainforests. River Ganges, a scared river, and foothill of the Himalayas also define the culture of this part of India. Southern India that includes Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala are the extension of Deccan plateau that extend to Cape Comorin. These are unique places and favourite leisure destination of tourists.

People visit India for its unique culture and monuments. It has extra ordinary cultures that have been shaped by its history. The famous Indus civilization in the Indus river valley that had flourished about five thousand years ago is a major force that shaped what is India today. The word ‘Hindu for Indus’ is believed to have originated in this valley. The meaning of the word ‘Hindu’ was not so much of a religion rather it is definition of the civilization at that time. The ‘Indus Civilization’ is believed to have adopted high level of lifestyle and advance form of technology that developed the towns and undecipherable script language. The civilization is as old as the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Sumer but it outlasted both in all aspect. However, the tectonic upheavals in about 1700 BC and the advent of Aryans around 1500 BC in the valley brought end to its glory. The Aryans who came from the North and spread throughout India brought another dimension in the culture and religions of the Indus valley that transform its own character and thereby culture of the Arayans. It is strongly believed that the Four Vedas or script of Hinduism were compiled at this time of the history.

In 567 B.C. Gautam Buddha was born in Limbuni, a small town in Nepal, and later attained Nirvana in India. This is a landmark era in the history of Inida. Gautam Buddha well known for his ‘Buddhist’ Phylosophy brought a tremendous impact in the lives of the people. Mahavira propagated Jain Religion at that time also had impressive impact on the civilization of India. Next mile stone was two hundred years later, in the 4th century B.C. The emperor Ashoka who led the Mauryan Empire defined the modern cultural boundary of India. Ashoka later adopted Buddhism as his religion and built many monuments that are included in the UNESCO World heritage list.

The other imprint in the culture was made by Guptas in the north and in the south Cholas, Pandyas and the Cheras; they spread Hinduism. They flourish in the trade with Europes and other nationalities of Asia till the end of the 1100. During the time Christianinty came into India from Europe. The history has it that Jewish religion made its mark even before the arrival of Christianity. The Parsees who landed in Gujarat made its own impact in the religious mix. In 15th century Guru Nanak made lasting impact with Sikh religion in Punjab. Mohammed of Ghori, a ruler from Afghanistan came to India in 1192 and placed his important impression by introducing Islam as the religion in several places in North India including Delhi. Before him  Islam was already flourishing in Kerala. After that Mughals came from Iran and captured north part of India. During this time in 1336 the Hindu empire of Vijayanagar was strong in the south. The Europeans - Portuguese, French, Dutch, Danish and last but not the least the British came in and placed their own imprint on the culture and civilization of India.

With a relatively small population of 600,000, people in Bhutan enjoy a sustainable lifestyle, which they inherited from their forefathers. Buddhism, prevalent in the country since the 7th century, respects all forms of life and considers them sacred. The natural elements of the earth: wind, water, rocks, trees, lakes and mountains are seen as the abode of gods and goddesses and spirits and demons. They are believed to punish, with death and disease, those who disturb and pollute their domain.

Rishabanatha, founder of Jain faith, believed that he gained spiritual liberation on the summit of Mt.Kailash.  Bon po, pre Buddhist religion in Tibet believes that this is the 'Nine storey Swastika Mountain' that lead to the heaven. Despite its barren and dry features the lake and the mountain has magnetic influence to devotees and visitors alike. The pilgrims walk and prostate around the mountain path of 55-km Kailash parbat (mountain) known to them as Meru in ice and stone. There is a strong belief among Hindus and Buddhist that a single walk around the holy mountain would wash away all the sins of a lifetime. Travelers and explorers see in its raw form the amazing beauty in the middle of dull landscape and the faithful feels that it is the sanctuary of the God which gives life to the entire human being. Everybody always find in it something valuable. Kailash peak and Mansarover Lake are situated at 4500 meter above sea level at the highest elevation on the Tibetan plateau. It is the source of holy rivers of south Asia like Indus, Sutlej, Brahamaputra and Karnali Mt. Kailash. It is the only peak in the entire Himalayan range revered as ultimate sanctity. It is also one of the highest Mountains in Tibet at over 6714m (22,022 ft) and Lake Manasarovar at 4558m (14,950 ft) is probably the highest freshwater lake in the world. Though the entire Himalayas is regarded as divine dwelling yet Mt. Kailash is the only peak that is revered as ultimate sanctity. Pilgrim takes bath in the lake Mansarover, known as Mana (mind) of Brahama.

The place is certainly remote and difficult to reach especially in the extreme weather conditions and often on dusty and rough road. The distance from Kathmandu is about 1000 km and from Lhasa it is almost double. On the geographical aspect the mountain is the source of four great rivers that merge in the Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea. It is the source of the civilization of Indus and Brahamaputra river valley in India. Despite the reality of Cultural Revolution in China and Tibet, regions around Kailash suffered least. Though many monuments around it and in the vicinity were destroyed yet the faith of its followers has remained stronger than ever. More than the pilgrimage of your lifetime it is truly an adventure that remains with you life long.

Visit to the historical place of Zedang involve a long drive. It is 190 km to the east of Lhasa in the Yarlung valley which is linked with the birth of Tibet's history. It would be very interesting to visit Samye monastery which is one of the oldest monastery in Tibet. The monastery is simply breathtaking and inspiring.

The flight over the Himalayas makes spectacular crossing rarely seen anywhere in the world. The lush green colour in Nepal slowly fades away and arid and dull gray plateau appears which in turn turns into blue sky as you land at Lhasa. The highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest, and another 8000-meter peak of Mt. Makalu dominates the breathtaking view.
