Duration: 13 Days
Mount Kailash is one of the world’s most revered holy places. Due to its high altitude and remote location in western Tibet, only a few thousand pilgrims are able to do the Kailash Mansarovar Kora or Yatra every year. Mount Kailash is known as the dwelling place of lord Shiva with his wife Parbati, and is the ultimate destination of pilgrimage for Hindus. Pilgrims believe that by doing the Kora or Yatra around Mt. Kailash they will be relieved of their sins.
We at Himalayan Treks allow full customisation for our customers, which is why we also have add-ons and trip extensions which can be perused by interested trekkers. Some popular trip extensions availed by our clients include a day or more exploring the historic sites of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur or why not pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Chitwan National Park. Likewise, it's also possible to extend your trek to link it with other treks in the same Everest area, for instance the Gokyo Valley trek. However, if you are looking for a different experience altogether, we can recommend the Annapurna Circuit trek or the Manaslu Circuit trek.
