One World Trekking Offers New Trek to China’s Yunnan Provence

In 2012, adventure travel leader One World Trekking to explore the "Lost Shangri-La" of the Himalayas.

Aspen, CO, November 04, 2011 --( One World Trekking, a leader in unique Himalayan adventure travel since 1988, has announced that they will be offering a brand new trek to Mount Kawa Karpo in the remote Yunnan Provence of China.

“Each year we look a map of South Asia and attempt to identify a little-traveled corner of the Himalayas,” says Andy Crisconi, OWT’s Director. “Our new trek exemplifies our adventurous nature and will certainly meet the demand for out of the way, culturally-oriented active travel.”

The Sacred Pilgrimage of Mount Kawa Karpo
From September 20 to October 13, 2012, One World will be running a sacred pilgrimage around one of the Tibetan world’s three great sacred mountain ranges, Mount Kawa Karpo of northwestern Yunnan province. The route, which roves up to 15,090 feet and descends to 4,600 feet, has been called "the eternal road" for its still magnificent and vital role in the lives of some of the planet’s most remote mountain peoples. The One World group will join other pilgrims to succeed in completing one total kora of the mountain, which is for many a dreamed of lifetime goal for faithful Buddhists. For centuries, pilgrims, warriors, and nomads alike traveled the span of the Himalayas to circumambulate around the white-capped spires of the yet unclimbed 22,107-foot Kawa Karpo peak.

On this 24-day active vacation, group members will hike an ancient pilgrimage route which passes beneath one of the most formidable and stunning mountain ranges on the globe and through areas of zero pollution and sacred Buddhist sites. It remains unchanged as one of the great spiritual journeys on the earth.
