Lhasa Mt.Kailash & Mansarovar Simikot Tour

Trip Code: TKM

19 Days

Town in Tibet

This classic tour is specially designed for those who are interested to travel via Lhasa and visit major cultural and religious sites in Lhasa as well as continue the spiritual journey to Mt. Kailash & Mansarovar. The first day of this tour will be very exciting as you fly over the ranges of stunning high mountains between Kathmandu and Lhasa. After you land in Gonggar airport in Lhasa, you will be taken to your hotel, where you spend the day acclimatizing without any strenuous activities. On the second day, your sightseeing in Tibet starts and continues till the 3rd day of the tour.
You will visit Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Streets, Potala Palace, Sera and Drepung monasteries, and Norbulingka in Lhasa. You can enjoy the rickshaw ride in the city and shop at the Barkhor Street. On the 4th day, you will continue your overland journey to Mt. Kailash which lies in a very remote region of Tibet. The 3-day circumnavigation ( Kora) of the world's most sacred mountain is quite difficult. After a short, but highly strenuous hike around Mt. Kailash you will relax beside Lake Manasarovar, a legendary source of the four great rivers of South Asia. Then, our overland journey continues towards the borderland of Nepal – Tibet at Taklakot and drive down to Hilsa and next day fly from Simikot (2900m) to Nepalgunj and from Nepalgunj to end the trip.
