Om Namah Shivaya! Mount Kailash (22,000 ft) is known as a holy site among Hindu, Buddhist and Jain holding significance as the home of Lord Shiva. Kailash Manasarovar Yatra is undertaken by thousands of Yatris every year and known for its religious value, cultural significance, and physical beauty with thrilling nature.
17 Days Mount Kailash Trek via Simikot (Humla) is the most unique type of trekking which you will experience while going to Tibet’s Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar, via the Humla valley in Nepal’s western part. Our trek will start from Simikot and we continue to travel west along the mighty Zangpo River to reach Mt. Kailash, where we will take ‘kora’ (holy-circuit) trek of the mountain. This is a great opportunity to learn about the rich culture of the locals, unique traditional lifestyle, and making it the most unforgettable trekking experience.
If you are traveling in June then, you have the chance to see the Saga Dawa Festival (the most important festival in western Tibet), held once a year during the full moon. Tibetans from all over the country flock to Mt Kailash for the ritual raising of a prayer-flag pole, which foretells the fortunes of the country for the next year. Saga Dawa is a carnival of Tibetan music, chants and Tibetan products brought to sell, an event not to be missed.
