Mt. Kailash-Manasarovar Tour

Mt. Kailash Mansarovar Tour is perhaps one of the best trips ever to Tibet- the roof of the world. The major highlights of the tour includes three days of Kora around Mt. Kailash, exploration of Lake Manasarovar and adventurous crossing of the two highest passes in the world- Drolma La  and Kongtang Lhamo pass(5236m). These two passes offer magnificent panorama of Mt. Shishapangma(5620m), the 14th highest mountain in the world, as well as Mt. Gurla Mandhata (7694m). Much of the journey takes place through dreamlike and exotic Tibetan landscape that is dotted with lakes, waterfalls, monasteries and verdant wildlife. Among other attractions of this tour is visit to Yarlung Tsangpo River, Peaku Tso Lake and Chiu Monastery. The trek begins and ends in Rasuwagadhi in Rasuwa district, just 100km north of Kathmandu, along the Nepal-Tibet border point. 



Worshipped by Buddhist and Hindus as the precise “Midpoint of Universe” Mount Kailash is the most holy Mountain of Asia. This mountain is believed to be the elite habitat of Hindu God Shiva and Goddess Parvati by most of the Hindu people. There is a strong belief that accomplishing the strenuous journey to Mount Kailash and nearby Manasarovar Lake one can attain the ultimate salvation from all the known and unknown sins ever committed in life. This divine tour commonly named Kailash Darshan is practiced to get cleansed from the clutches of ignorance and delusion of life.



Tibet offers exciting trail, fabulous monasteries, exotic view of world’s tallest peaks, and natural panorama with the spiritual atmosphere which demands every human being to visit this place at least once in their lifetime. The Kailash range is also alleged to be the dwelling of the originator of different religion. Manasarovar Lake which is situated nearby Mountain Kailash, you can witness the massive number of high Tibetan priests and devotees chanting and praying at the shore of Manasarovar. Combination of two Sanskrit words “Manas” meaning mind and “Sarovar” meaning lake, this Manasarovar (4580m) was created to show the supremacy of Brahma’s( the God of creator) mind as per Hindu Scriptures. Whereas According to Buddhist legends, Lord Buddha meditated nearby the lake for long time to get the knowledge to the fullest. Hence People believe in purifying their soul and physical body by drinking its holy water and revolving the lake around its peripheries. Moreover, primordial legend exclaims that dipping into its cold water awards us to enter the heaven after death.
