With the years of experience, Himalayan Asia Treks is operating a pilgrimage tour to the holy sites in the Tibetan plateau as Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by road  2021/2022. This Mt. Kailash tour offers a unique voyage experience at the high altitudes in a serene part of the world. Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar Yatra is a dream tour of almost all the devout pilgrims, as this place holds the most significant values amongst the Hindus. Pilgrims of Buddhist religions also equally venerate these holy sites. Lake Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash doesn’t only hold the religious significance but is truly a heaven on earth. The landscapes, the turquoise lake and the stunning display of the mountains on the background are the most admirable shows at this high altitude. This journey to Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar is just an amazing once-in-a-lifetime tour experience.

Our Kailash Mansarovar Yatra starts off with a full day Kathmandu heritage and pilgrimage sightseeing tour. In this itinerary, we will set off the journey towards Tibet on the third day of arrival. Our overland journey takes us to the northwest Nepal-China border at Syabrubesi. With a night halt in Syabru, we will cross the border next morning clearing immigration formalities and head for Kyirong. At Kyirong, we will acclimatize to the climate and altitude that day and get ourselves ready for our further trip to the higher altitude the next day. From Kyirong, we will proceed to Saga, stay overnight and continue to Lake Mansarovar (Chu Gompa) the following day. We will circumambulate the holy lake Mansarovar and stop there for our worship and Havana. The next day, we will drive to Darchen, from where we continue to Yama Dwar, which is also known as the gateway to Mt. Kailash. Our trek part of this tour begins from Yama Dwar and we will be trekking for three days. The first day is a trek to Deraphuk, through the ascending trail of rubbles and pebbles, the second day is a bit tough one to reach Zuthulphuk, where we will reach the highest point of the trek Dolma-La Pass at 5600m. Crossing this pass, we will start to descend through Gauri Kunda. After a steep descent, we will reach our pick up point at the base from where we will catch our vehicle and drive to Lake Mansarovar via Darchen. People who didn’t join this Kailash Kora (circumambulation), we will pick them up and continue to drive towards Saga. From Saga to Kyirong and cross the border clearing immigrations once again to enter Nepal. It will take a full day drive around 8-10 hours to reach Kathmandu, which will conclude our tour.

Despite the trekking part being tough for some, one can still choose to stay at Darchen to get the Mt. Kailash view or stay at Lake Mansarovar and wait. However, for the travelers who dared Kora, can have a beautiful stunning view of Mt. Kailash up close while on the trek, which is sure to relieve them from the exhausting journey. This is just a lifetime experience, so why not join our group for this holiest overland journey towards Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake.
