Kailash Mansarobar Trek Via Simikot & exit from Kerung – 19 Days

Very few mountains in the world can compete with the magnificence of Mount Kailash (6714m), the celebrated Holy peak in western Tibet.

Hindus worship Kailash as the spiritual centre of the world.  Lord Shiva, one of the most powerful deities in Hinduism, sits in perpetual meditation and is accompanied by his wife, Parvati, goddess of power and love.

Tibetan Buddhists worship Mount Kailash as Kang Rinpoche or the precious jewel of snow. Mount Kailash is also observed as the home of Demchok, a multi-armed, enraged deity, and his consort, Dorje Phakmo.

For Bonpos (followers of the Bon religion) Mt. Kailash is considered as the seat of the world where the founder Tonpa Shenrab is said to have descended from heaven and for the Jains it is Mount Ashtapad where the noble prophet Rishabha achieved moksha or spiritual liberation.

Our excursion starts from Kathmandu; from Kathmandu we board a flight westwards to Nepalgunj and continue to Simikot from where the actual trek commences.

We begin this pilgrimage by following the historic salt trading route towards the Nara Pass and continue the trek to the Tibetan ancient trading hub of Taklakot aka Purang from where we drive to the Lake Manasarovar where we perform our Pooja, holy bath and a clockwise Parikrama of the Lake.

We then drive about 8 km to Tarboche (Yama Dwar) from where we start our Kailash Parikrama. Once we complete the Parikrama we continue towards Saga and drive to Nyalam from where we return to Kathmandu.
