13 Days Kailas Mansarovar overland tour
13 days


13 Days Kailas Mansarovar overland tour is an excursion to the very remote far western corner of the Tibetan Plateau.  It is a very popular tour to one of the most revered holy sites in the world, Mt. Kailas.  The tour begins with a short drive from Nepal across the Tibetan border to Nyalam Town.  From there, the tour traverses several
high altitude passes and goes through several Tibetan villages such as Peiku Tso, Mayum La, Dira Puk, Zutul Puk, and Darchen.  We will stay in some of these villages overnight affording the opportunities to see
many aspects of the Tibetan culture, including art, literature, language, and religion.  While most of the tour consists of riding in a vehicle and enjoying the spectacular scenery, there are also a couple of short treks included. Local Tour Guide and Leading to Mt Kailash Tour in Tibet
