Kathmandu to Tibet Mt. Kailash Tour 14 Days


This tour is the shortest and the most direct approach to Mt. Kailash. It is one of the most popular tours to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar starting from Kathmandu, which commences with an overland journey to Zhang-Mu (the Tibetan border town). The program covers a three days circumambulation tour around Mt. Kailash and a two days stay at the shore of Lake Manasarovar (Chiu Gumpa side). The other days we spend traveling to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar and returning to Kathmandu.


This Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar tour commences from Zhang-Mu and normally ends at Zhang-Mu. But alternatively, we can even end this tour in Lhasa or Khasgar.
