Trip Overview

The sacred peak of Mount Kailash (6,658 m/21,838 ft) is the final destination for many travelers to Tibet, ranging from tourists to Buddhist pilgrims and other followers of spiritual traditions from far and beyond. From the slopes of Mount Kailash flow four of the world's great rivers - the Indus, Brahmaputra, Karnali and Ganges; embodying its reputation as the 'heart of the world'. 
 
Starting our overland journey from Kathmandu, The only Himalayan Hindu Kingdom of the world, we will then cross the border and drive towards Nylam where we spend our first night. The road to the sacred mountain is long and at times arduous, but the breathtaking views of the snow-capped peak, as well as the uninterrupted view of the Himalayas and rural Tibetan villages are certain to make the journey an unforgettable one. After exploring the lake and surrounding area we will follow the 3-day pigrimage trail around the holy mountain to complete an once-in-a-lifetime kora or parikrama. Afterwards, driver back to Kathmandu.
