A Mansarovar tour holidays offer a great opportunity to explore the amazing views of the Himalayan ranges, Tibetan culture and their lifestyles. See the wonderful landscape, beautiful views of Mansarovar and Rakshas lakes which represent the force of light and darkness respectively. Mansarovar Lake is smooth, bright and associated with goodness while Rakshas Lake is dark and often fascinatingly stormy as an unpredictable contrast to the area's purity. Most of the Buddhist and Hindu devotees including western people are willing to make the circuit of holy Mt. Kailash to add another element to their good karma. It is believed that single Parikarma deletes the accumulated sins of a lifetime, while 108 circumbulation will achieve salvation and Nirvana. Mt. Kailash means precious mountain and its associated Lake Mansarovar could be considered the most sacred place on earth. The best time to visit is from April to October.

Alpine Eco Trek have been leading memorable, motivating and environmentally sensitive kailash tours and treks supported by professional guides, cooks and trip assistants in the spirit of creating a win - win team that benefits everyone since many years. Joining on Mt. Kailash & lake Mansarovar tour with us means to be in safe hands for success.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude is a major factor on all of our Tibet Kaliash tours. We often reach altitudes of over 5000m.This can have mild or severe affects on the body no matter what your level of health. Symptoms can include headache, dizziness, nausea, loss of appetite, and difficulty sleeping. The best way to prevent this is to stay extremely hydrated and conscious of how your body is functioning. We also have rest days to help the body acclimatize. Diamox is a prescription altitude medication (consult your doctor) that can help prevent symptoms. We also carry oxygen tanks and portable altitude chambers. Be sure each of you is traveling on your own risk. It's recommended to have a file with your medical history on this type of trip with recent medical report.


Physical Fitness 

Although most of the trip will be done in vehicles, it is important that clients be in relatively good health. The trek around Kailash requires some demanding hiking and altitude can take a physical challenge on the body. We suggest clients start an exercise routine prior to the trip that includes hiking or jogging for a least an hour 3-4 days a week. If you have any concerns about the physical demands of the trip feel free to contact us please .If you have any chronic health problems please consult your doctor.
