KAILASH & MANSAROVAR TOUR - Mt. Kailash, claimed to be the apex of the Hindu religious axis is also one of the highest mountain in Tibet at 22,020 feet, and lake Mansarovar at 14,950 feet is said to be the highest fresh water lake in the world. Certainly a difficult region to reach with variable and extreme weather conditions. The distance from Lhasa for example is approximately 2000 km. Only during the last few years have many ordinary or not so ordinary travelers been able to experience this region. Road conditions are difficult much of the time and we have to make many preparations to ensure that we have a reasonable chance of reaching Kailash. We need to bring our own food and camping equipment. Basic lodges and teahouses can be found but the plateau is so remote that it is impossible to travel for several days without finding food available.
To travel for days on this remote plateau with the chance encounters of nomads herding their sheep or yaks is to be transferred into another way of life. To see and become part of such a devout pilgrimage as shown by pilgrims around Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar is to put some aspects of our western way of life into their proper perspective.
We begin the tour by traveling to Kathmandu and departing by road to the Nepal/Tibet boarder town of Zhangmu where we collect out transport. We travel by the Southern route and after our pilgrimage (religious or secular) we return by the same route. The day to day program is outlined which we follow during our journey
