Trip Overview

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. Our management team and field crew includes locals from the area and have more than 15 years of experience of operating tours in the region. In addition, we have our guest house in Simkot and networks to ensure your smooth journey.

Our itinerary have two options to visit the area

1: Entry from Humla and helicopter to the border and drive.

2. Drive in from Rasuwagadi to Kerung border and drive

 

 

Entry from Humla and helicopter to the border 

The itinerary will take you through Humla which is a historical gateway to Kailash and West Nepal and also a safest route due to moderate altitude which allows visitors to acclimatize before driving into high altitude of Tibet.

After a short trip in Kathmandu, you will fly to Simikot via Nepalgunj. From there, you will be flown in by helicopter up-to Hilsa border. From there, you will be picked up by jeeps to Purang town and you will then proceed to Manasarovar and to Kailash.  The circumambulation ‘Kora’ of Kailash takes about three days after which you will drive back to Hilsa and fly to Simkot and Nepalgunj.

Highlights

  • Short access from India
  • Helicopter drop and pick up at the Hilsa border
  • Acclimatization in Humla before Tibet
  • Familiar and convenient hospitality and stay in Humla and Nepalgunj
  • Shorter duration of the trip
