The journey to Kailash and Mansarovar 11N 12D from Nepal takes us to one of the stunning places situated at the northwest of Nepal in Tibetan Plateau. Starting off the tour on a road trip from Kathmandu will initially take us to the Nepal-Tibet (China) border- Kyirong/Kerung/Gyirong, crossing the border at 3750m and after 3-night layovers, we reach the most revered holy place Lake Mansarovar (4560m). Taking a dip/bathe, worshipping (puja) and circumambulating this majestic holy lake are the main purpose of the travelers here, besides snapping the vistas.
The next part of the tour is a Kora (circumambulation) of Mt. Kailash (6638m), which will start from Tarboche (Yama-Dwar/ Yama-Sthal), a further westward drive from Darchen. It takes 3 days to complete Kora with 5-6 hours walk a day, where the trail takes us as high as 5,800m- the stunning Dolma La Pass. The trek ends after descending to the Barga plain at a pickup point from where we take a ride back to Lake Mansarovar for a rest. Next day is a return and we follow the same route of arrival while heading back to Kathmandu with a few night halts en route. This Kailash Mansarovar Tour is easy and suits everyone, while some might find it moderate/hard due to Kora of Mt. Kailash. However, one can always skip the Kora part and drive up to Darchen or Tarboche for proximity view of beautiful Mt. Kailash and return to stay at Lake Mansarovar enjoying the place.
