The most amazing Lhasa & Mt Kailash tour begins with a spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Lasha. The first 4 days Lhasa & Mt Kailash tour explores the important heritage sites of Tibet including, Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery and Barkhor street. It is very nice to acclimatize your body before driving to Everest Base Camp and Manasarovar Lake. Everest Base Camp tour presents the magnificent view of Tibetan Himalayas, Lakes, legendary monasteries and top of the world Everest. At the same time, your tour to Manasarovar investigates the holy lake of Manasarovar and holy mountain Mt. Kailash.

Manasarovar

Hindu people also visit Manasarovar Lake and have a bath believing to across the pain and suffering after death. Not only Nepali but also most of the Indian Hindu take bath in the Lake of Manasarovar. The Holy Lake of Manasarovar is at 4590 meters above sea level. A large freshwater lake of Tibetan Plateau, with an area of 88 km. According to Hindu mythology, Lake Manasa Sarovar is a personification of cleanliness. And those people who drink water from the lake will go to the Abode of Lord Shiva after their death. He is believed to be cleansed of all his sins committed over even a hundred lifetimes. Also, people bring the water in the bottle for families and relativities.

Dominating the north of the Himalayan Barrier

with its spectacular view, the Mount Kailash (or Mt. Kailas) is equally the holiest pilgrimage site for Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and Bön-Po. Tibetans regard this mountain as the manifestation of Mount Meru, “the navel of the earth”. It is also a belief that here founder of Bon religion, Tonpa Shenrab, has descended from heaven. Hindus as the abode of Lord Shiva, Buddhists as the abode of Samvara and Jains as a sacred site where their prophet, Rishaba attained spiritual enlightenment. With its four sheer walls, distinctive snow-capped peak, and valleys interspersed with brightly-clad Tibetan pilgrims, Mount Kailash or Kang Rimpoche (‘precious snow-peak’, as known by the Tibetans) is an awe-inspiring sight. Four great rivers of Asia: the Karnali, the Indus, the Sutlej and the Brahmaputra (Tsangpo) originate from here.

A three-day trek (Parikrama or Kora) around Mount Kailash over a 5610-meter Drolma La (pass), clockwise for Buddhists and Hindus, and anti-clockwise followers of the ancient Bon religion, it erase the sins of a lifetime. Then to complete the Kailash pilgrimage one should bath in the sacred Lake Manasarovar. It is stunningly set on the Tibetan plateau and the majestic Gurla Mandata separates. On the journey to Mt. Kailash across the windswept Tibetan plateau, you will see cliff-top monasteries, wild-looking but hardy and hospitable Tibetans, yak caravans journeying over snowy passes, and the great peaks of the Himalaya with a foreground of grazing herds, yak skin tents, and a glittering turquoise lake. Exploratory tours of significant towns of Tibet (i.e Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse) combined with three-day trekking around Mount Kailash, has become a very popular adventure activity in Tibet over the past few years.
