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.

Kailash trek via Lhasa can be one of the best adventure-travels for the trekkers. The trek aims to introduce you to the colorful and culturally rich city of Lhasa "The Forbidden City," along with observing local landscapes and tribal found in Kailash region.

Kailash trek will suit best for those looking to travel the desolate valleys of Himalaya, moreover, those looking to live a nomadic life.
