Mount Kailash located in West Tibet is considered the holiest mountain by Asia’s major religious traditions: Hindus, Buddhists, Jain and Bon followers. The region is also the source of Asia’s four major rivers: the Indus, Brahmaputra, Sutlej and Karnali flowing into the four cardinal directions nurturing civilizations as they flow.
Due to remoteness and closure of the borders, not many people were fortunate to visit the area in the past despite its cultural and natural attraction. But since last few years, due to improved road access in Tibet and air connectivity in Nepal aided by favorable government policies, it is possible to visit the area with comfort and convenience.
Due to helicopter services available in Humla, the route has become shorter and convenient for pilgrims visiting Mt Kailash, Tibet.
We will provide you with experienced guides and Sherpas throughout the trip to make sure that your journey is smooth, safe and comfortable as much as possible.
