27 Days Qinghai Sichuan Yunnan Amnye Machen Kora Mountain Pilgrimage Trekking Tour and Yushu Horse Racing Festival Experience
Tour Type:Private Tour
Tour Code:169
Highlights: A pre-extension to the Four Rivers, Six Ranges: The Horse Festivals (009), this is one of the great koras around one of the most sacred mountains in Tibet. The snowy peaks of the Amnye Machen (Magyel Pomra) range are considered sacred by all the schools of Tibetan Buddhism, as well as by B?n followers and the Golok nomads. Its main peak - Machen Gangri (6282m) - is the abode of Machen Pomra, a very powerful protector god, and one of the most important deities in Amdo; every year thousands of pilgrims come here to do the kora (7 to 9 days). Though many have died in the trying, it remains righteously unscaled. Rising out of the expansive grasslands of SW Amdo Tibet, Manchen Pomra, once seen, captivates the eye to remain the constant focus of the kora. The circuit itself is roughly 150 km, at altitudes of between 4-5000m. Using pack-yaks and horses, the walk will take 8 days, crossing a few major passes (and some minor ones too!), fording streams, and mixing it up with the nomadic Golok pastoralists who inhabit the area, along the way passing much in the way of power places - no surprise, that! For those with the time and inclination, this is a great way to get close to the country and culture of this region - a classic trek.
