Tibet Kailash Tour
Tibet Kailash Tour is a journey of soul purification as you travel through sacred sites, mountain passes, holy lakes, and the home of Lord Shiva, Kailash. Mount Kailash lies in the Himalayas in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China and has several holy sites that are religiously significant, and Mount Kailash (6638 m), for many religions, is the most important one. Seeing Mt. Kailash up close is a dream, and circumventing around it, is once in a lifetime event. So, get ready for the challenge and have the pilgrimage tour of your life.
After spending a day in Kathmandu which is also the home to Pashupatinath, one of the most important Shiva temples in the world, we will reach the Chinese border to the north of Nepal the next day. Tibet Kailash Pilgrimage Tour is made on a vehicle all the way to Kailash Base Camp after which, we will spend three-day on trekking that goes around Mount Kailash. Mount Kailash is also religiously significant to Hindus and Buddhists along with Jain and Bon followers. En route to Kailash, you pass through the barren hills, yak meadows, patchy green fields, sand dunes, waterfalls, and rivers that make up the breathtaking landscape of Tibet. You also visit the serene Mansarovar Lake and offer prayers by doing puja on the river bank. This Tibet Kailash Pilgrimage tour will purify your souls as you lose yourself in the mystic land of the Roof of the World. It is best to do this dour from March to May and from September to November.
