Trip Introduction;
Mount Kailash is famous for being one of the most sacred peaks of Asia. Located in the far west corner of Tibet, Mount Kailash is sacred to the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Jains, and the Bonpos. Thousands of pilgrims visit Mount Kailash every year for doing the Parikrama or Kora around Mount Kailash. The trek is an excellent opportunity for those who want to explore the region and complete the Kailash Manasarover Yatra. Kailash Manasarover Yatra, includes a swepping flight to Lhasa, sightseeing in Lhasa and trek around Mount Kailash-also known as Parikrama or Kora and a visit to one of the serene and sacred lakes of Tibet - Manasarover Lake.  

Kailash Mansarover Tour with Nepal Guide Treks starts with swepping flight to Lhasa. Exploring The ancient city of Lhasa[Norbulingka palace, Potala Palace, Drepung and sera Monastery] we finally reach to Kailash Mansarovar lake also known as Mapam Yumtso. we start our trek with early morning Puja and do Kora or Parikrama around Mount Kailash passing through Drolma La Pass at 5,630 meters. It is believed that the holy trek around Mount Kailash is incomplete without a bath at Manasarover Lake. Hence, we drive towards Manasarover Lake as a religious confirmation for the completion of the holy trek around Mount Kailash. From there our return journey follows through drive to Saga-Shigatse and finally at Lhasa. Now we end this trip by taking a flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu.
