Background

Let us write a tale about the adventure in the mountains and plateaus that no one has heard. Let us create the memories no one has lived. Well, let us begin the first chapter of the majestic tale in the trip of Manasarovar Lake and Mount Kailash. This trip is an excellent journey in the landscapes, culture, and adventure of Nepal and Tibet. The trek leads through the unexplored and remote western Nepal before stepping in the Tibetan plateau. The trek to the culturally rich heritage of western Nepal and Tibet is filled with spiritual and peaceful ambiance. The holy site of Mount Kailash and Manasarovar Lake is an important religious destination of both Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. Crossing the high passes at an altitude of 5800 m, walking through the alluring mountainous valleys, drive in the Tibetan plateaus, barren mountains and a taste of authentic and glorious Buddhist and Tibetan culture are some highlights of the Mount Kailash trek through Simikot Hilsa.

 

This amazing trek starts from Kathmandu and after you get the formalities sorted, you head towards Nepalgunj. This bustling town lies in the India border and it is very hot as well. Spend a night here and move towards Simikot via an airplane. Simikot is the headquarters of Humla and is cut off from the rest of Nepal. It is extremely isolated too. Interact with the locals here and proceed to Dharapuri by walking on the banks of the Karnali River. Move past barley fields to reach Kermi. You can relax at the nearby hot springs and even visit the Laikyo Gompa and Lhundrup Choeling Gompa. These gompas are rich in Buddhist culture and traditions. Cross the Salli River and find yourself walking on landscapes that resemble Tibet. The Namkha Khyung Dzong Monastery lies in Yalbang and we shall stay here. Walk on hilly and forested terrain to reach the village called Pani Palwang and from there, move towards Yari which is commonly known as Thado Dhunga. Take a quick rest at Hilsa, which lies in the border of Nepal and Tibet. Get your permits sorted and enjoy the drive the Taklakot. You have now officially entered Tibet. We shall drive to the holy Mansarovar Lake and do Parikrama on a private vehicle. This lake is linked with Lord Shiva and it has links with Buddhism as well. We can see Mount Kailash from here. From the lake, we drive to Darchen which is the final resting spot before venturing out to Kailash. The holy Kora starts from Yamadwar and we shall circumambulate Mount Kailash. Walking past Dolma la, and Zuthulphuk we complete the Kora. From Dongba, we drive towards Kyirong and after fulfilling the legal formalities, we enter Nepal. Head towards Kathmandu from here and end this amazing journey.
