Kailash & Manasarovar

Kailash & Manasarovar

Few mountains in the world rival the grandeur of Mount Kailash (6,714m). The famed Holy Peak in western Tibet. Kailash is regarded as the centre of the universe by most of Asia. It is the ultimate Tibetan journey, from the holiest Buddhist Mountain, the sculpted perfection of Kailash, through the serene beauty of the Tibetan plateau. Mount Kailash is the holy mountain of Tibet and is the source of the four great Himalayan Rivers. The area is not open to independent trekkers and was only very recently opened to foreign trekkers in an organised group with a special permit through the Simikot (Humla) region, the highest and northern most district of Nepal. Although the main objective of this trek is Mount Kailash and Manasarovar Lake, the journey through Humla and Tibet is both culturally and scenically rewarding.
