  • The Guge Kingdom with the Citadel of Thöling is located approximately 1500 km from Lhasa lying in the West of Tibet. The directions of the last pass of more than 5000 m is spectacular and from there you can see the whole Himalayan mountains as its frontier with India. Take the pass down through a beautiful landscape as in the Grand Canyon. In the monastic guesthouse in Thöling, we have stayed off 20 minutes from the Citadel. The Citadel is carved in a 200 m high mountain. The common people lived at the bottom of the river or the mountain caves. Earlier the Ministers and at the top of the Palace of the King. You can see still the defense measures such as huge spin that landslides on attacker could be overthrown. The steep mountain is full of corridors and escape routes. Very impressive. Once up, you can enjoy a great foresight.
