Major Attractions of the Kailash Mansarovar Tour

Mount Kailash

Nestled amidst Tibet's captivating scenery, Mount Kailash is a towering landmark that draws pilgrims and adventure seekers from all over the world. This magnificent peak soars to great heights of 6714 meters. It goes by several names, including Kailash Parvat, Tise, and Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows).

Signifying the center of the physical and metaphysical universe, it has great spiritual significance for Hindus, Buddhists, Janis, and Bonpos. For Hindus, Mount Kailash is a symbol of Lord Shiva's revered home, the demolisher and transformer of the Hindu triad. It is thought that a trip to this holy peak offers total emancipation and purifies the spirit. Buddhists view Mount Kailash as a physical embodiment of the cosmic mandala, embellished with the presence of Bodhisattvas and Dyani Buddhas. This holy mountain serves as a portal to higher states of awareness and a beacon of enlightenment for devotees of both religions.

Kailash Kora

The Kailash Kora or Kailash Parikrama (Mt. Kailash Circuit) is a holy walk that circumnavigates Mt. Kailash. The hiking route is 52 km long and takes 3 days to complete. The hike is difficult since it entails walking at high altitudes, and crosses the 5,630-meter-high Drolma La Pass. The kora begins in the small village of Darchen and goes along Sarshung Village, Lachu Valley, Dirapuk, Drolma La Pass, Zuthulpuk, and concludes at Darchen. You will get to view the gorgeous Gauri Kunda from the summit of Drolma La Pass.

Mansarovar Lake

Mansarovar Lake, located in the southwest region of Tibet, is one of the highest freshwater lakes in Asia, elevated at an altitude of 4590 meters above sea level. This somewhat circular-shaped lake has a perimeter of 88 km. The lake is well-known among nature lovers for its gorgeous surroundings and crystal-clear waters.

Just like Mt. Kailash, Lake Mansarovar also has religious significance in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bon religion. According to legend, this is the place where Lord Shiva tamed the sacred Ganges river and sent it to feed the verdant valleys beneath the Himalayas. Buddhism regards Mount Kailash as the father principle and Lake Mansarovar as the mother principle. Queen Maya is said to have taken a bath in Manasarovar before giving birth to Buddha. Similarly, Lake Manasarovar is linked to the first Tirthankara, Rishabha, in Jainism. A ritual bath in the lake is thought to wash away all the sins and purify the soul.

Chiu Monastery

Chiu Monastery is a historic monastery situated at the shore of Lake Mansarovar, which is perched atop the rocky red-colored Sangtok Pelri Mountain and appears to have been cut directly out of the rock. One can enjoy a breathtaking view of Gurla Mandhata Peak (7,694m) and the Manasarovar Lake from the monastery. Mount Kailash is also visible from here on a clear day. Despite its small size, Chiu monastery's architecture is similar to Potala Palace.

Rakshas Tal

Rakshas Tal is a saltwater lake located just west of Mansarovar Lake and south of Mt. Kailash. Rakshastal and Lake Manasarovar are connected by a little river called Ganga Chhu, which is thought to have been formed by rishis to bring in pure water to the Rakshastal from Manasarovar. Rakshastal consists of four islands: Dose, Dola, Lachato, and Dosharba. The locals utilize the islands as their yaks' winter pastures.

In Sanskrit, the lake's name literally translates to "lake of the demon". It is also referred to as Ravan Tal because Ravan, the demon-like King of Lanka, is said to have performed extreme penance there. The lake is referred to as Lhanag Tso or Lagngar Cho in Tibetan, which translates to "the dark lake of poison".


At the base of Mount Kailash sits the little settlement of Darchen. It is sometimes referred to as Mount Kailash Base Camp. It serves both the beginning and finish of the Mount Kailash Kora trek and is a major gathering place for travelers. The town has many lodges and guest houses serving food and accommodation to pilgrims and travelers visiting Mt. Kailash.

Dirapuk Monastery

Dirapuk Monastery is located close to Mount Kailash and offers stunning views of the peak's northern flank. Every year, hundreds of pilgrims who traverse the sacred trail around Kailash, stop at the monastery along the way. It is one of the best locations to photograph the north face of Mt. Kailash. The view is especially amazing during sunrise in the morning.

The Gotsangpa yogin's retreat cave serves as the foundation for the monastery. He found the route around Mount Kailash, guided by Daikinin, who appeared to him in the form of a yak. This is how the monastery's name originated. Dira translates to "female yak horn" and Puk to "cave" in Tibetan.

Drolma La Pass

Drolma La Pass is the highest point on Mount Kailash Kora at 5,630 meters above sea level. The rise is hard and steep, and breathing is hard at this level due to the thin air. Despite its difficulty, the pass is regarded as one of the highlights of the hike because of the breathtaking views from the top. One can see Gauri Kunda from the pass, which bears the goddess Parvati's name and is thought to be the location of her bath before being married to Lord Shiva.

ItineraryTrip day to day detail itinerary

The trip begins with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Kyirong. Our driver will pick you up from your hotel in a private vehicle in the morning. Have your breakfast and get ready for the 6-7 hours drive on a challenging road to Syabrubesi. The initial route is going to be somewhat comfortable on a black-topped road. But the last few hours will be bumpy on the off-roads. However, the scenery on the way will make up for the bumpy ride. Also, our drivers are experienced in driving in such terrain, so you’re completely safe.

After driving on the curvy roads of the Nepalese countryside and passing by the small towns of Naubise, Galchhi, Bidur, Dhunche, and Syabrubesi, you’ll finally reach the Rasuwagadhi border of Nepal and Tibet. Here, you’ll go through some immigration procedures and cross the border on foot.

Once you’ve crossed the border, you will meet your Tibetan tour guide on the Tibetan side of the border. You'll travel an hour or so with the guide to get to Gyirong town (2800 m) from the border. After checking into a hotel in Gyirong, you'll have your dinner and spend a restful night at the hotel.

Note: Since it takes at least 3 to 4 days to obtain a Tibet Group Visa, and because the Chinese Embassy will retain your original passport during that period, you must arrive in Kathmandu 4 to 5 days before the departure date. You also have to be physically present at the embassy for biometric information. To apply for a Tibet Group Visa, you must also be a part of a group consisting of at least 5 individuals. Get in touch with your tour operator to join a group departure trip if you are traveling with fewer than 5 people.


    Today, we spend an acclimatization day at Gyirong to adapt to the high altitude of Tibet. One of the options to spend the rest day is to visit the Paba Temple in the morning. Songtsan Gambo, the Tibetan king, constructed this magnificent Gelugpa shrine at the request of his wife, the Nepali princess Bhrikuti. The temple features elaborate murals designed in the Nepalese style. You can utilize the rest of the day in Gyirong to get acclimated to Tibet's high altitude.

      Today is the first day of a long drive on the Tibetan desert terrain. After breakfast, we begin our 250 km drive from Gyirong to Saga (4500 m). Unlike Nepal, the roads on the Tibetan side are far better so it will only take you 4 to 5 hours to cover the entire journey. You will be treated to breathtaking vistas of famous sites throughout our delightful drive over Tibet's mountainous landscape, including the scenic Turquoise Lake Peiku Tso (4590 m) and Mt. Shishapangma (8027 m), the 14th highest summit in the world. Watch out for any opportunities to see endangered species like antelopes and wild donkeys.

      Saga is a charming town in Tibet with a few decent hotels and guesthouses, good local dining options, and a market. We’ll have our dinner and spend the night at a hotel in Saga.

        Watching the mountains in the distance and driving through the Tibetan valleys, we pass through the small town of Zhongba before reaching Paryang. You will see charming small towns and lush pastures tucked between the giant Himalayas and mesmerizing Gangdise. As you cross the 5,112-meter Mayomla Pass, you'll be met with the breathtaking view of Mt. Naimonanyi (7694 meters). At the end of the drive, you’ll reach the holy Lake Mansarovar (4590 m), one of Tibet’s sacred lakes.

        As you approach this serene and sacred lake, the historic Chiu Monastery becomes visible on the northwest shore of the lake. From this vantage point, you can have the first glimpse of the majestic Mount Kailash (6714 m). Manasarovar is the highest freshwater lake with a turquoise blue color, surrounded by Mt Kailash, Mt. Gurula-Mandata, and Lake Rakchyas. The sight you get to see from here is simply heavenly.

        We’ll spend the night in a local guest house on the bank of Lake Mansarovar.

          In the morning, we spend some time at the holy lake. You can worship or perform puja rituals according to your religion. If you’re not interested in religious rituals, you can enjoy the sights, walk around the lake, and visit the monasteries in the vicinity. The turquoise lake looks stunning in the morning and the view of pristine Mt. Kailash makes it look even more gorgeous. You can also pay a visit to the nearby Rakchas Taal and Chiu Gompa.

          After some peaceful hours at the shores of the sacred Lake Manasarovar with the snowy massif of Gurla Mandhata (7694 m) just across the lake, we drive 40 km to Darchen (4670). The village of Darchen is right in front of Mt. Kailash and serves as the base for Mt Kailash Kora (circumambulation). The Kora is 53 km in length and takes 3 days to complete. We’ll spend the night at a local guest house at Darchen.

            Today, we begin our 3 days trekking around Mt. Kailash (Kailash Kora/Circuit). After breakfast at the guest house, we take an eco-bus from Darchen to Sarshung Valley, which is the starting point of the trek. You will be accompanied by your tour guide. If you need a porter or yak to carry your baggage, you can hire them in Sarshung village. Please remember that the cost for a porter or yak is not included in our package cost. 

            After everything is arranged, we start the trek. We hike along the beautiful rocky cliffs and waterfalls with some clouds in the clear blue sky. The 15 km trail takes almost 7 hours. On the way, we pass by the gorgeous Lachu Valley with flowing rivers. By the end of the day, we reach Dirapuk (5210 m), located in front of Mt. Kailash’s north face. Dirapuk is known for Dirapuk Monastery and you can visit the monastery once you get there. We have dinner and spend the night at a local guest house in Dirapuk.

              It’s the longest trekking day of Kailash Kora, and also the toughest. Today’s hiking journey will take us to the highest point of the Kora, Drolma La Pass at 5630 meters. First, we walk on the level surface for a couple of hours and then the uphill trail to Drolma La Pass begins. On the way, you pass by Shiva-tsal, where people are thought to die symbolically and be reborn once they get to the top of Drolma La Pass. 

              After spending some time at the pass’s summit, you’ll start to descend and that’s when you see the beautiful sight of Gauri Kunda, a tiny sacred lake at the foot of Mount Kailash. You’ll have to walk for another two hours on a somehow flat surface to reach Zuthulpuk (4760 m), once you reach the base of the pass. By the late afternoon, you will arrive at Zuthulpuk where the great ascetic Milerapa is supposed to have performed miracles. You can visit the Zuthulpuk Monastery and spend the evening at the guest house. 

                Today, we complete the Kailash Kora/Parikrama and drive back to Saga. In the morning, we’ll explore the surrounding caves and temples of Milarepa Cave. After breakfast at the guest house in Zuthulpuk, we head out for 3 to 4 hours of hike to complete the Kora. Once we’re at the finishing point, we board the eco bus to Darchen, where we’ll have lunch. After lunch, we’ll again drive through the scenic Tibetan highway to Saga, where we’ll have dinner and spend the night at a hotel or a guest house.

                  After breakfast at the hotel in Saga, we again board the vehicle that will drive us to Gyirong. We drive past tiny settlements, grand pastures with yaks grazing in them, snow-capped mountains, and desert-like terrain in the Tibetan plateau. By lunchtime, we’ll reach Gyirong. You can go out to stroll the town of Gyirong and buy some souvenirs at the market there. In the evening, get back to the hotel, have dinner, and have a good night's sleep.

                    Once you’re done with your breakfast in the morning, your Tibetan tour guide will escort you back to the Tibet-Nepal border at Rasuwagadhi. At the border, you’ll again go through immigration formalities and enter Nepal. On Nepal’s side of the border, you’ll meet your Nepali driver who’ll drive you back to Kathmandu in a private vehicle. You’ll travel past beautiful Nepali hills and mountains filled with green forests, agricultural lands, and human settlements. 

                    You’ll be dropped off at your hotel in Kathmandu in the evening. On the same evening, we’ll meet again for your farewell dinner. We hope you had an amazing 10 days in the Tibetan land and will go back home with lasting memories. We wish to see you again in the future.

                      Visas and Travel Permits

                      Since the tour begins and concludes in Kathmandu, you will also need a Nepal Entry Visa in addition to a Chinese Group Visa and Tibet Travel Permit to go for the Kailash Mansarovar Tour. 

                      Here’s a list of visas and permits required for the trip:

                      Nepal Entry Visa

                      The trip starts once you get to Kathmandu, Nepal. Your Chinese Visa and Tibet Travel Permit are also applied from Kathmandu. So, in order to enter Nepal, you will require a visa. A Nepal Entry Visa is easy to obtain. Upon your arrival at Kathmandu International Airport, you can quickly receive it by paying the visa fee and showing a few documents and a passport-size photo at the immigration desk.

                      Chinese Group Visa

                      A Chinese Group Visa is required for anyone going to Tibet from Nepal. You need to be in Nepal 4 to 5 days prior to your travel to Tibet, as the visa application process takes 3 to 4 working days. When you arrive in Kathmandu, your tour operator will pick up your passports and other important documents and deliver them to the Chinese Embassy. You will also have to be physically present at the embassy for your biometric information. The visa will then be sent to you before your trip to Tibet. A minimum of 5 people must be in your group in order to be eligible for a Chinese Group Visa.

                      Tibet Travel Permit

                      Every traveler visiting Tibet needs a Tibet Travel Permit. To get this approved, you must first verify your vacation plans and itinerary with a reputable travel agency. Your passport copy and scanned documents will subsequently be picked up by the partner organization in Tibet and sent to the Tibet Travel Bureau (TTB). Within 9 to 10 business days, the permit will be issued. When you arrive in Tibet, your Tibetan guide will hand it over to you.

                      Transportation for Kailash Mansarovar Tour

                      You will be driven in a private vehicle by a Nepalese driver from Kathmandu to the Gyirong border. Upon entering Tibet, you will be greeted by your Tibetan driver, who will transport you in a private car, according to the size of the group, from the border to Gyirong town. The same private car will be used for your Tibetan road trip from Gyirong to Darchen, passing by Saga, Paryang, and Mansoravor. From Darchen to Sarshung Village (the starting point of Kailash Kora), you’ll have to travel in an eco bus as private vehicles aren’t allowed in the region.

                      After the completion of the Kailash Kora, you’ll travel from Sarshung Village to Darchen on the eco bus and take a private vehicle with the whole group to get back to Gyirong and the Rashuwagadhi Border. Once you enter Nepal, your Nepalese driver will meet you and drive you to Kathmandu, where the trip ends.

                      Accommodation During Kailash Mansarovar Tour

                      Tibet isn’t known for luxury vacations. So, it’s difficult to find high-end accommodations in Tibet. However, in towns like Gyirong and Saga, we have handpicked the most comfortable and secure lodging options. Lodging alternatives in rural locations like Mansarovar, Darchen, Dirapuk, and Zuthulpuk are usually less lavish. You’ll spend the nights in local guest houses equipped with basic furniture, mattresses, pillows, and blankets. The rooms are available on a sharing basis so you’ll have to share the room with fellow travelers.

                      If you’re not comfortable sharing a room with others, we can arrange for a single room or a higher caliber of hotel service according to your preference with adequate notice and at an additional cost. However, the upgrade is only available in Gyirong, Saga, and Darchen.

                      Meal options during the trip

                      Our Kailash Mansarovar Tour Package includes breakfasts for every day of the trip. As every person has different preferences, lunch and dinner are not included in the package. There are many restaurants offering Tibetan, Nepali, Western, Continental, Chinese, and other cuisines in Kathmandu, Gyirong, and Saga. In addition to the Nepali mainstay Daal Bhat (rice and lentil soup with veggies), you may savor local Tibetan cuisine in Mansarovar, Darchen, Dirapuk, and Zuthulpuk, including butter tea, tsampa, dumplings, noodle soup, simple Chinese, and some Western fare like fries, omelets, pizzas, and pasta.

                      Tour and Trek Guides

                      We employ native Tibetan guides who are fluent in English and knowledgeable about Buddhism, Tibetan history, and the cultural practices of Tibet. They will accompany you from the moment you enter Tibet until you leave. They'll be by your side even during the Kailash Kora. The majority of tour companies have trained their guides to provide services up to par with Western expectations. We will go above and beyond to make sure you are safe and secure during your entire stay in Tibet, and we will help you when needed. Please do not hesitate to contact our customer support if you have any problems during the tour.

                      Fitness Level and Prior Experience

                      No prior experience is necessary as the Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar Tour is appropriate for the average visitor who is moderately fit. It is advisable to engage in physical fitness regimens like running, swimming, and trekking prior to starting this voyage. Before contemplating the tour, anyone with pre-existing medical conditions must get advice or consent from their doctor. It's normal to feel a little uncomfortable during the tour until you get used to the high altitudes.

                      Please be aware that you will be trekking for a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 8 hours at altitudes above 5,000 meters while you are in Kailash Kora. So, you must be physically and mentally capable to complete this 3-day high-altitude trek.

                      Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)

                      Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), commonly known as altitude sickness, is a common concern while traveling at high elevations over 3000 meters above sea level. You're less likely to suffer from altitude sickness because we're not flying to Tibet but rather driving there over the course of 5 days from a considerably lower altitude of 1400 meters at Kathmandu. However, you’ll reach as high as 5630 meters during the Kailash Kora at Drolma La Pass, so you have to be cautious about not getting AMS.

                      Headache, nausea, difficulty breathing, fast heartbeat, difficulty falling asleep, and so forth are some of the symptoms of altitude sickness. If you encounter any of these signs, please get in touch with your guide right away. Drinking lots of water and fluids is suggested as a way to combat altitude sickness.

                      Things to remember during the Kailash Mansarovar Tour

                      FAQsMount Kailash Mansarovar Tour - 10 Days frequently asked questions
                      • The weather and temperature in Tibet depend on the time of year you're traveling. March, April, and October have cooler nighttime temperatures and comparatively warmer daytime temperatures, with nighttime lows of -15°C and daytime highs of 20°C. The weather is ideal from May to September, with daytime highs of 25°C and nighttime lows of -5°C. Be ready for the unexpected, though. It may get as cold as -20 degrees Celsius some nights.

                      • Most places have easy access to bottled water. You must use a purification tablet, which you must carry with you if you want to drink regular water. You can also bring a water bottle with an in-build filtration system for further safety.

                      • You may easily get laundry service at your Kathmandu hotel for a small fee. Laundry services are unavailable in Tibet. You can wash at the river, public faucet, etc. We suggest you carry enough clothing for the entire trip. Please be aware that the cost of the package does not include laundry service.

                      • The perfect timing is determined by more than simply physical factors, such as the weather. Your availability should always determine the best time for you to travel. The greatest season to visit Tibet is from spring through fall (March to November) as the monsoon is not as strong as it is in Nepal. In general, the ideal times to visit Nepal are in the spring and fall. During the Kailash Mansarovar Tour, you will have to drive across Nepal's difficult, mountainous, and landslide-prone terrain for an entire day. Therefore, the optimum seasons to travel to Nepal and Tibet are spring and fall.

                      • Travel insurance is highly recommended for anyone contemplating a trip to the Himalayas. In the event of a medical emergency, evacuation, theft, loss of personal belongings, or last-minute tour or ticket cancellations, this insurance will cover you. This preventive measure will ensure a safe and enjoyable travel.

                      • Tibet's official currency is the Chinese Yuan. You can convert your dollars, euros, or pounds into Chinese Yuan at any bank or ATM in the country. In Tibet, bank holidays are observed on Saturdays and Sundays. Therefore, it's a good idea to have some cash on hand before embarking on your day trip. There are ATMs in Gyirong and Saga, however, it could be difficult to find one in other small rural villages.

                        The currency of Nepal is the Nepalese Rupee. In Kathmandu, you may easily use a money changer to convert your cash into Nepalese Rupees or take out cash from ATMs and banks.

                      • It all depends on how you spend your money. During the journey, $15 to $20 a day will cover the cost of lunch, dinner, water bottles, chocolates, and a few drinks. The cost of living in Tibet is rising yearly. Handicrafts made by the traditional Tibetans are sold in a lot of local stores. It is advised that you carry additional cash in case you want to buy souvenirs.

                      • You don't have to worry about communication problems when visiting Tibet. Every group of tourists will be escorted by a tour guide who speaks English, and the majority of front desk employees at hotels are likewise proficient in the language. Nepali, Tibetan, English, and Chinese are the four primary languages spoken in Tibet.

                      • Regretfully, you are unable to visit Tibet alone or secure a visa on your own because of China's highly restrictive tourism regulations for the region. An approved travel company, such as Outfitter Nepal, will take care of all the required paperwork, including the visa and entry permit. It's forbidden to even go around alone. A certified Tibetan guide is required; your trip operator will provide one. 

                      • Tibet is known as the "Roof of the World." Tibet is home to several of the ten highest mountains in the world. The Tibetan plateau, the highest plateau on Earth, is the source of several of Asia's major rivers. Many Buddhist pilgrimage journeys stop in Tibet, home to some of the most illustrious monasteries on earth. The Dalai Lama's residence is also in Tibet. Travelers, pilgrims, climbers, trekkers, and adventure seekers find Tibet to be an amazing location with its wide grasslands, towering mountains, and alpine lakes.
