Mt. Kailash (the Holy mountain) claims to be the apex of the Hindu religious axis. Mt.kailash is also one of the highest mountains in Tibet at 6,700 meters. And Lake Mansarovar lies at 4,556 m above sea level. It believes that it is the highest fresh-water lake in the world. Most importantly, this trek is quite a difficult region to reach. Due to its variable and extreme weather conditions.

The mountain locates in a particularly remote and inhospitable area of the Tibetan Himalayas. For trekker convenience, there are a few modern amenities like benches, resting places. Likewise, refreshment kiosks, that exist to aid the pilgrims in their devotions are also available along the route. Every year, thousands of pilgrimage explore Kailash. They follow a tradition going back thousands of years to make their soul pure. Pilgrims believe that circumambulating Mt Kailash on foot is a holy ritual that will bring good fortune. Hindus and Buddhists make the peregrination in a clockwise direction. 
The distance from Lhasa is approximately around 2000 Km. In addition, as per the last few years’ lots of ordinary and not-so-ordinary travelers are able to experience this region. Roads are quite difficult, it takes too much time to reach there. Therefore, we have to make much preparation to ensure to reach Kailash. We need to bring our own food and camping equipment.

As per Chinese regulations, transportation ( 4WD Jeep) and a Chinese/Tibetan guide are a must to hire. Furthermore, we will send Nepalese staff for camping and cooking arrangement. All the camping/kitchen gear and food supplies will buy along from Nepal. So, the Nepalese kitchen crew will prepare the food of your taste.

To travel on this remote plateau, we get a chance to see the people are herding their sheep or yaks. The views of the route transform us into another way of life. It is an incredible trek to become a part of such a devout pilgrimage around Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar. We start our tour by traveling from Kathmandu and departing by road to Nepal/Tibet. It is the border town of Zhangmu where we collect our Transport. We travel by the southern route and after our pilgrimage (religious-secular) we return by the same route).
