The scenic beauty of Mount Kailash and its surrounding terrain is not the only reason why thousands of people flock to this site. The religious and cultural importance of Mount Kailash spreads to four different religions; Hindus, Buddhists, Bons, and Jains. Take this journey to seek out the soul satisfaction this site is revered for. The holy aura this place exudes, along with the serenity of the high mountain air makes this an adventurous journey layered with spirituality in its every step.


Mount Kailash is a pilgrimage site that lies next to two lakes, Mansarovar and Rakshastal. There is a conviction that a circumambulation of Mount Kailash and a plunge in Lake Mansarovar will wash away all the sins. Not only that, a Kora (circumambience) around this site is considered to bring good fortune. For the purpose of Kora, you will trek from and back to Darchen, via Dira-puk and Zutul-puk monasteries, all the while basking in the sight of the holy mountain. Travel on trails that will take you through lovely valleys, forests and icy paths. The natural backdrop of rocky mountainous terrain adds to the aesthetic of spiritual journey.
