Kailash Simikot Tour - 22 Days

image description

This tour will offer the unique type of trekking experience which takes you to Tibet's mythical Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar, via the hidden Humla valley in Nepal's western most Tibetan frontier. Starting from Simikot, we continuously travel overland west along the mighty Zangpo River and over high passes to reach Mt. Kailash. There we take some time to make the 'kora' (holy-circuit) trek of the mountain sharing the trail with other pilgrims that journey to Kailash in the summer months. This extraordinary journey definitely gives us deep knowledge about the rich culture of the locals, their unique traditional lifestyle, spiritual odyssey as well as unforgettable trekking experience.
