In 1999, as I first set foot in Shangri-La, a living buddha friend told me about a hidden territory, high up on the way to the Yading mountains; a lost country in the Tibetan Kham, where rivers flowed with gold and nature was wild, where men followed ancient traditions and hid away from the world. Like a hidden treasure, I held on to this dream of exploration. For fifteen years, from summits and altitude passages, I contemplated this secret geography. In July 2015, with my trusted crewmen and carrying light packs, we followed our compasses and set out to look for its path. 

 

What we discovered was beyond our wildest hopes !

Nine days exploration caravan, from Shangri-La to Yading, in the footsteps of Joseph Rock. In 1922, with his epic caravan, he explored Yading range for the National Geographic. 

 

To honor these landscape, the caravan remains the only, obvious solution: the horses are beautiful,  the service is impeccable, the encampments are transcendent.

Accompanied by a solid crew and some thirty horses, together we will spend ten days celebrating forests set ablaze by the rich autumn colors. With bated breath, we will climb all the way up to rocky passages over four thousand meters above sea level, and follow these celestial crests overlooking incredibly beautiful sacred lakes. Like pilgrims, our eyes fixed on the horizon, we will be transported by these cathedrals covered in perpetual snow (6,032 meters) that will hypnotize the last steps of our adventure
