Holy Mount Kailash

Holy Mount Kailash

Mt. Kailash-Mansarovar Tour is perhaps one of the best trips ever to Tibet, or the roof of the world. The major highlights of the tour includes three days of Kora around Mt. Kailash, exploration of Lake Manasarovar and adventurous crossing of the two highest passes in the world- Drolma La (5620m) and Kongtang Lhamo pass(5236m). These two passes offer magnificent panorama of Mt. Shishapangma, the 14th highest mountain in the world, as well as Mt. Gurla Mandhata (7694m).
 
Much of the journey takes place through surreal and exotic Tibetan landscape that is dotted with lakes, waterfalls, monasteries and verdant wildlife. You will have a rare opportunity to interact with Tibetans, observe them in their unique nomadic life and learn about Buddhist culture.
 
Among other attractions of this tour is visit to Yarlung Tsangpo River, Peaku Tso lake and Chiu Monastery. The trek begins and ends in Rasuwagadhi in Rasuwa district, just 100km north of Kathmandu, along the the Nepal-Tibet border point.
