Trip Grade : three star

Mount Kailash 6700m hight, the most sacred peak of Asia, located in far west of Tibet is one of the most isolated and loneliest place on the earth. Mount Kailash, that looks like a pyramid shape rock capped by pure crystalline ice all the time. Mount Kailash is equally venerated as the holiest pilgrimage site by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bön-Po devotees to worship in the icy waters. Tibetans regard this mountain as the manifestation of Mount Meru, “the navel of the earth” where founder of Bon Po religion, Tonpa Shenrab, is believed to have descended from heaven, Hindus as the abode of Lord Shiva, Buddhists as the abode of Samvara and Jains as a scared site where their prophet, Rishaba attained spiritual enlightenment. Four great rivers of Asia: the Karnali, the Indus, the Sutlej and the Brahmaputra (Tsangpo) are originated from here.

People believe that who make a three-day trek (Parikrama or Kora) around Mount Kailash across Drolma La pass (5630m), clockwise for Buddhists and Hindus, and anti-clockwise for the followers of the ancient Bon religion, will erase the sins of a lifetime. To complete the Kailash pilgrimage one should bath in the sacred Lake Manasarovar, stunningly set on the Tibetan plateau bordered by the majestic Gurla Mandata.

On the journey to Mt. Kailash across the windswept Tibetan plateau, you will see cliff-top monasteries, wild-looking but hardy and hospitable Tibetans, yak caravans journeying over snowy passes, and the great peaks of the Himalaya with a foreground of grazing herds, yak skin tents and a glittering turquoise lake.

Throughout the journey from Tibetan Plateau to Kathmandu you enjoy the comfortable overnight accommodation, excellent food and camping facility and you continue driving through the vast arid plains and spectacular landscape.
