This journey takes you through the hidden Humla valley in Nepal's western most frontiers and to Tibet's holy Mount Kailash and mythical Lake Manasarovar. To begin this trip we start by taking the flight to Simikot. From here our trek follows the ancient salt trading and pilgrimage route towards the Nara Langa pass and to the border trade post at Taklakot.
Kailash is actually Indian word and Tibetans used to called it Kangrenpoche or kangkartesi which means the “precious jewel of snow”. Why it is so called because during hot summer time, the snows around the surrounding mountains will meltout and it is only mount kailash that covers with snow for whole year. From the buddhist point of view, It is believe that Godess White Tara had first initiated the circumambulating circuit for the local Tibetan people because nobody at that time knows the circuit. That's why there is a pass with altitude of 5630m called Dolma-la pass which was termed after godess Tara(Dolma in Tibetan). The festival of Saga Dawa marks the enlightenment of Sakyamuni, and occurs on the full moon day of the fourth Tibetan month. Saga dawa is particularly popular time to visit mount kailash as Tibetan from every parts of Tibet gether in Darchen for the preparation of their circumambling around mount kailash. Tibetans believe that more the number of circulation around the kailash earns more merits in life.
