There are eight holy mountains in Tibetan area in China,seven of them are female, Kawadgarbo is male,as well as the first and leader of others.Tibetan respectfully call it “A Ji Kawadgarbo” which means “Grandfather Kawadgarbo”,and Tibetan believes that he helps people drive away evil spirit.

There were 9 climbing expeditions failed in the last 100 years,Kawadgarbo is an virgin peak until now.In 1991, six Chinese and eleven Japanese mountaineers lost their lives to an avalanche,This is second worst climbing accidents in the world ,as well as one of the worst in China. In 2001,local govemment issued a new legislation which is not allow people to climb Kawadgarbo anymore.

Pilgrims treks around Kawadgarbo for weeks to pay homage to the holy mountain every year. There are two trekking route,one is outer circumambulation,another one is inner circumambulation.

 

Outer Circumambulation: This is a tough journey which will cost about 7 to 12 days.Pilgrims have to trek through valley,river and pass which will cost more time and energy.Camping gear is necessary during the journey except pilgrims will live in local Tibetan hut guesthouse.The trekking route has great relative relief which means people always walk on steep path and walk through falling rock area,as well as climb up or go down for hours.
