Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to provide an informative contribution to the study of pilgrimage in general and to the subject of Tibetan pilgrimage in particular by field testing the most contemporary and comprehensive theory available. Toni Huber's typology of Tibetan pilgrimage was applied to observations gathered at various pilgrimage sites throughout Nepal. The data compiled was analyzed according to Huber's theory and interpretations were provided by the author concerning various ritual performances and motivations. The author has concluded that the theory Huber has proposed is appropriate for the Tibetan pilgrimage tradition, but is lacking in comprehensiveness in several areas. Specifically, Huber has constructed the exchanging and listening categories too narrowly, resulting in the omission of several highly significant ritual behaviors. The author has suggested modifications for Huber's theory that would broaden the scope of the restrictive categories and provide a more accurate assessment of Tibetan pilgrimage.
