Trip Overview

Mount Kailash (6,638m/21,778ft), locally known as "Gang Rinpoche," is considered a sacred peak by Hindus, Buddhists, Bon and Jains alike. Located in the Kailsh Range near two of the largest lake in the region, Lake Mansarovar and Lake Rakhshastal, it is a part of Trans-Himalaya in Tibet.

Every year, thousands of pilgrims make pilgrimage to Kailsh, therefore, encountering pilgrims and monks on the way will be a common sight for the trekkers. The trail follows through rugged terrain, high-altitude and unfriendly weather, making the trip on foot most challenging.

Sun radiation is extremely strong in Tibet. The sunlight in Lhasa is so intense that the city is called Sunlight City. The thin air can neither block off nor retain heat so that the temperature extremes can be met in day time and the same night respectively in Tibet.
