1. Mt. Kailash / Lake Manasarovar Trek
Nepal/ Tibet (25 days)
In May 1993 the government of Nepal and China
reached an accord that allowed the first treks
across the border between the two countries.
It used to be a route for Nepalese Pilgrims
while foreign trekkers were never allowed to
trek form Nepal to Tibet. The journey takes
you to Humla, Nepal’s most remote district,
which is culturally and scenically rewarding.
The ethnic groups in Humla consist of mostly
Thakuris, Chettris and Bhotias.
A 50 minutes flight from Nepalgunj takes you
to Simikot (2910m.) the district head quarters
and starting point of your trek. The trek passes
through Nara La, a pass at (4580m.), then to
Hillsa (3720m.), the border town between China
and Nepal. From a nearby Tibetan salt trading
post at 3680m., you will catch a jeep to take
a 2 hrs drive to Taklakot (3920m.) via Kojarnath.
From Taklakot a 3hrs hour drive via Gurla La,
a pass (4560m.), at the base of Mt. Kailash,
which is the most sacred mountain in Asia .
to Hindus Kailash is the abode of lord Shiva
and lake Manasarovar is the soul of Brahma.
Form Darchan the 4 days Mt. Kailash circuit
begins, passing through Dolma La a pass at 5630m.,
the highest point of the trek. The return back
journey to Simikot is the same way back drive
