Kailash Overland Tour

Duration: 13 Days   |  

Kailash overland tour is one of the spectacular and thrilling journeys in Tibet. This amazing trip starts and ends in the vibrant city of Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal.
A great mass of black rock soaring over 22,000 feet, Mt. Kailash (6741 m) has the unique distinction of being the world's most respected holy place at the same time that it is the least visited. Reachable after four days of continuous drive across the vast Tibetan plateau ( or after a week of interesting trek from Simikot in western Nepal).At the end of the drive we reach a exceptionally beautiful turquoise lake with the floating swans and a spectacular mount Kailash .For Hindus Mt Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva . Both Lake Mansarovar and Mt Kailash have religious significance for both Hindus and Buddhists. Four great rivers originate from Lake Mansarovar – the Indus, Karnali, Bramhaputra and the Sutlej.
The 53 km periphery is the trail for circumambulation around this holy mountain and takes 3 days .The Kora or circumambulation starts at Darchen some 30 Km from Lake Mansarovar. After the Kora we drive back to Kathmandu. En route we enjoy great view of world's highest mountains, meet the nomad sheep herders and enjoy the unique beauty of Tibetan desert. During our Kailash overland tour we travel on 4WD jeep and our belongings are carried on trucks .We sleep in guest houses wherever possible and in tented camps at other places .Food is cooked by our camp cook.
