The holy Mt. Kailash (6714 m), and the Lakes Manasarovar are situated in the arctic Tibetan Plateau in western Tibet between the Mt. Gurla Mandala (Memo Nangni in Tibetan, 7694 m) in the southeast and Mt. Kunlung in the north-west. This tour will offer the unique type of trekking experience, which takes you to Tibet’s mythical Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar, via the hidden Humla valley in Nepal’s western most Tibetan frontier starting from Simikot. The remarkable feature of this trip is Kailash kora (Circumnavigate) plus sightseeing tour in and around Lhasa. This worth visiting city offers abundant Buddhist monasteries including Sera Monastery, one of the best preserved monasteries in Tibet, where several hundred monks live and study within its whitewashed walls & golden roofs. Besides, Jhokhang temple which is probably the most sacred shrine in Tibet where there is always a procession of devout Tibetans through complex. Pre-dominating the city of Lhasa, the Potala Palace that comprises the private quarters of Dalai Lama as well as several grand state rooms and many important chapels is another highlight of this tour. This trip is highly recommended to those who are fond of experiencing Buddhist traditional culture, tradition and life style of Tibetan Buddhists.
