Highlights

Overview

Mt  Kailash tour  is an incredible and challenging tour in western Tibet. Mt. Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva and Kang Ringboche of Tibetans Buddhism. In ancient period, it took years for sages and saints to reach Mt. Kailash for salvation (Mukti), and above that it was inaccessible for common people. But now because of modern transport system, the path to salvation is no longer an isolated dream. Now it doesn't take more than three weeks to materialise your much awaited life time dream. As sacred scripture says the path to divinity is always difficult, your trip to Mt. Kailash will be adventurous making you longing for Mt. Kailash.  The Mount Kailash is a holy mountain in Tibet standing on the basin of Lake Manasarovar.

We offer  to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasorovar driving and trekking plans to Mt. Kailash and Lake manasarovar. Mt. Kailash, at 6714 m, also known as Tise, Kailasa & Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows), has since time immemorial been celebrated in many Eastern cosmologies as Mt. Meru, the axis mundi. And as the center of the physical & metaphysical universe, Mt. Meru is sacred to the Buddhist, Jains, the Hindus & the Bonpos. For the Hindus, the mountain represents the seat of Lord Shiva; for the Buddhists, a terrestrial projection of the cosmic mandala of Dhyani-Buddhas & Boddhisatvas. The Wheel of Life; for the Bonpos, Kailash was the sacred nine storeys Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Sherab alighted from heaven. Four of the great rivers of the Indian subcontinent originate from here: the Karnali (longest river in Nepal), which feeds into the Ganges (south), the Indus (north), the Sutlez (west) & the Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsangpo, east).

It’s a challenging place to go so many adventure seekers might find this place great. This trek includes lots of driving and hiking. 14 days Pilgrimage Tour to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasorovar will be a very memorable trip for you if you are an adventure seeker and a fit person.
