Mount Kailash and Humla Valley Trekking Tour

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is considered as one of the most pious pilgrimage for the followers of Hindu, Jain and Buddhist religions and at the same time the most difficult spiritual adventure trips of Asia. However, with Kailash Mansarovar overland tours the difficult terrain of Kailash Manasarovar becomes comparatively easy and accessible with the modern road infrastructure and transport system in Tibet. This 14 days long trip filled with spirit of adventure begins from Kathmandu with a rough and scenic drive to Keyrung, crossing Nepalese border at Rasuwagadi. The black top roads of Tibet leading to Lake Mansarovar and Mount Kailash offers scenic view of snowcapped mountains and great Tibetan plains.
