Mount Kailash (the Holy mountain) claimed to the apex of the Hindu religious axis is also one of the highest mountains in Tibet at 6.700 meters and Lake Mansarovar lies at 4,556 m above mean sea level, making it the highest fresh-water lake in the world. Certainly, a difficult region to reach due to the variable and extreme weather conditions. The mountain is located in a particularly remote and inhospitable area of the Tibetan Himalayas. A few modern amenities, such as benches, resting places, and refreshment kiosks, exist to aid the pilgrims in their devotions. Every year, thousands make a pilgrimage to Kailash, following a tradition going back thousands of years. Pilgrims of several religions believe that circumambulating Mount Kailash on foot is a holy ritual that will bring good fortune. The peregrination is made in a clockwise direction by Hindus and Buddhists. The path around Mount Kailash is 52 km (32 mi) long
The distance from Lhasa for example approximately 2000 Km. Only during the last few years have lots of ordinary and not so ordinary travelers, been able to experience this region. Road conditions are difficult much of the time and we have to make much preparation to ensure that we have a reasonable chance of reaching Kailash. We need to bring our own food and camping equipment. As per Chinese regulations, transportation ( 4WD jeep) and a Chinese/Tibetan guide is a must to hire from China/Tibet whereas we will send Nepalese staff for camping and cooking arrangement. All the camping/kitchen gears and food supplies will be brought along from Nepal. The Nepalese kitchen crew will prepare the food of your taste. To travel for days on this remote plateau with the chance encounters of nomads herding their sheep or yaks is to be transformed into another way of life, to see and become apart of such a devout pilgrimage as shown by pilgrims around Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar is to put some aspects of our western way of life into proper perspective. We begin the tour by traveling to Kathmandu and departing by road to the Nepal/Tibet border town of Zhangmu where we collect our Transport. We travel by the southern route and after our pilgrimage (religious secular) we return by the same route).
