Kailash Mansarovar Yatra


Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, also known as the Kailash Parikrama and Mount Kailash Yatra, is a pilgrimage in China's Tibet Autonomous Region. The journey includes circumnavigating Mount Kailash and paying homage to Lake Mansarovar. Pilgrims from all over the world embark on this difficult journey, navigating rugged terrain and high altitudes, motivated by a strong desire for spiritual blessings and enlightenment. They immerse themselves in ancient rituals, prayers, and introspection, seeking divine connection amidst the majestic Himalayan scenery. The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is more than just a physical journey; it is a profound spiritual odyssey that highlights pilgrims' enduring faith and devotion to inner peace and enlightenment.

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is an important spiritual pilgrimage that blends spirituality with the magnificent beauty of the Tibetan Himalayas. This pilgrimage tour invites those seeking inner enlightenment to embark on a transformative journey by circumambulating the revered Mount Kailash. Participants can purify their souls by taking a dip in the pristine waters of Mansarovar Lake, which is believed to hold divine significance. Apart from the spiritual aspect, the Yatra also helps in exploring the origins of four principal rivers. As pilgrims traverse the remote Tibetan landscape, they can witness a rich tapestry of faith and cultural heritage, making it a unique and unforgettable experience. The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a testament to the profound connection between the spiritual and the natural, inviting individuals to embark on a journey that transcends the physical realm and nurtures the soul.

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a significant pilgrimage for Buddhists, Hindus, and Jains. It is believed that circumambulating Mount Kailash can purify sins and bring good fortune. This revered pilgrimage is steeped in Buddhist and Hindu traditions and is closed to climbers, despite Mount Kailash's prominent stature worldwide. According to the Vishnu Purana, the mountain is the epicenter of the world, with faces made of crystal, ruby, gold, and lapis lazuli. Six lotus-like mountain ranges surround it, acting as the cosmic pillar in the middle of the Mandala. Mount Kailash is also recognized as the source of four major rivers—the Indus, Brahmaputra, Sutlej, and Karnali—each flowing in distinct directions, delineating the world into separate regions.

Mount Kailash is a majestic pilgrimage destination that draws devoted travelers from around the globe. Situated in the Tibetan Himalayas, which are renowned for their stunning natural beauty, the journey to this holy mountain is not for the faint-hearted. It requires traversing challenging terrain that offers only a few limited amenities and services along the way. However, the journey is rich with awe-inspiring views of snow-capped peaks, crystal-clear lakes, and verdant valleys that will leave any traveler in a state of utter awe. To support pilgrims in their spiritual quests, there are only a few amenities available at the location, such as benches, rest points, and refreshment kiosks.

Mount Kailash is considered a sacred mountain by many religious followers. They strongly believe that walking on its slopes is a serious offense that brings severe consequences, often leading to tragic outcomes. This religious taboo has been passed down from generation to generation, making it an age-old tradition. Those who undertake the arduous journey to Mount Kailash in search of spiritual fulfillment are required to show extra respect and caution towards this tradition. Though the journey to Mount Kailash may be physically demanding, it is an enriching experience that nourishes the soul and leaves a lasting impact on anyone who embarks on it.

Trip Itinerary

  • 01 By Bus: Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,467m)

    After breakfast, we'll take a bus ride to Syabru Besi (1,467m). The journey, while not very far in terms of distance, can be tough due to rough roads and traffic, possibly making it a long and tiring experience. Expect to spend around 7-8 hours driving about 148 kilometers. When we arrive in Syabru Besi, we'll arrange comfortable lodging in a cozy lodge. You'll also have dinner and stay overnight in Syabru Besi.

    Accommodation: Guest House    | Driving duration: 6-7 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 1,500 meters    |    Distance Covered: 148 km
  • 02 Drive to Kyirong (2,800m)

    Today, our group will cross into China, with potential time-consuming border procedures prompting an early wake-up call and breakfast. We'll drive a short distance to the Nepalese border at Rasuwagadhi (1850m), about an hour from Syabru Besi, then proceed on foot to the Chinese side after completing immigration formalities. Boarding comfortable Chinese buses, we'll embark on a 110-kilometer journey to Kyirong (2800m), guided by Tibetans and aided by Nepalese Sherpas handling luggage and supplies. Upon arrival, you'll rest in a guesthouse while our kitchen crew serves tea, coffee, and snacks. Evening exploration or a stroll in nearby markets is an option before dinner, crafted by our Nepalese chef and served between 7 to 8 PM (local time). The night will be spent in Kyirong's guesthouse in dormitory-style accommodations.

    Accommodation: Hotel    | Driving duration: 4 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 2,800 meters    |    Distance Covered: 110 km
  • 03 Free day Kyirong for acclimatization

    Today is all about acclimatization to Tibet's high altitude, a crucial step in adjusting to the challenging conditions. Our tour manager will lead a short hike in and around Kyirong to help your body adapt. Alternatively, you can stay in the guesthouse and participate in spiritual Bhajan or Katha chanting sessions. It's worth noting that if conditions permit, the guides might decide to take the group to Saga for an overnight stay instead

  • 04 Drive to Saga (4,640m)

    The journey from Kyirong to Saga is a scenic delight, taking you through mountains and onto the vast Tibetan plains. Along the way, you'll cross the mighty Yarlung Zangpo (Brahmaputra River) and switch to the northern route, eventually reaching the charming town of Saga (4640m). Saga offers a picturesque Tibetan setting with good hotel and guesthouse options, plus local restaurants and markets for your enjoyment while acclimatizing. You'll have meals and a place to stay in Saga. As we travel through this stunning landscape, expect to be awed by snow-capped mountains. We'll pass over the impressive Lalung La Pass (5000m), revealing breathtaking views of the towering Himalayan peaks, such as Gaurishanker, Shishapangma, and Langtang Himal. During our journey, we'll also cross the sacred Brahmaputra River. At night, you'll stay in a Saga hotel with access to hot showers for a comfortable and refreshing rest.

    Accommodation: Hotel    | Driving duration: 5-6 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 5,000 meters    |    Distance Covered: 108 km
  • 05 Drive to Mansarovar Lake (4,590m)

    Today marks a significant milestone in your journey as you'll not only reach the sacred Lake Mansarovar but also catch your first glimpse of the revered Mount Kailash. Our day begins early, as we have a long journey ahead, and there are several checkpoints along the way that can make the trip tiring and time-consuming. We plan to start the drive around 7:00 a.m.

    Before reaching the Mayumla Pass (4900m), we will make a stop at the checkpoint. From there, we'll continue our drive towards Lake Mansarovar, where you'll have your first darshan (sacred view) of Mount Kailash. While today's drive is lengthy, the road conditions are favorable, and you'll be surrounded by scenic beauty throughout the journey. Upon reaching Lake Mansarovar, we'll check into a guesthouse. Dinner and overnight accommodation will be provided at the guesthouse.

    Accommodation: Guest House    | Driving duration: 6-7 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 4,900 meters    |    Distance Covered: 370 km
  • 06 Drive to Darchen (4,670m)

    In the early morning, we'll visit the pristine Mansarovar Lake for a sacred bath, performing puja, hawan, and other rituals according to your customs. The lake is exceptionally beautiful in the morning, with the majestic Mount Kailash enhancing its charm. While the lake's waters are undoubtedly cold, devotees are filled with deep spirituality and devotion, making the holy bath an unmissable experience. It's crucial to note that recent Tibetan government regulations prohibit full-body dips in the lake, considering it a punishable offense. Therefore, kindly refrain from entering the lake; our Sherpas will assist in bringing water for your bath in a bucket. After the bath and prayers, the group will proceed to Darchen, traveling via Rakshasa Taal and Chiu Gompa, completing 70% of the parikrama (circumambulation) around the holy lake. The remaining part of the parikrama will be done on the way back from Darchen after the Mount Kailash kora (circumambulation).

    Upon arrival in Darchen, you'll check into the hotel and spend the remaining time relaxing and preparing for the next day's kora around Mount Kailash. Dinner and overnight accommodation will be provided at the hotel.

    Accommodation: Hotel    | Driving duration: 6-7 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 4,900 meters    |    Distance Covered: 114 km
  • 07 Trek to Dirapuk (4,920m)

    Today, we begin early after a light breakfast, making our way to Tarboche. Remember to fill your water bottle before embarking on the trek. Before commencing the kora, all pilgrims have the opportunity to visit Yama Dwar. Tarboche, located towards the South face of Mount Kailash, is where you can hire horses/ponies for the trek, although it's important to note that the price and availability of these services are controlled by the local Union and Kailash yatra trip operators, and our team has no control over them.

    From Tarboche, we proceed to Yama Dwar, considered the starting point of the Kailash kora. The 12-kilometer trek to Dirapuk begins from Yama Dwar, and while it's relatively manageable, the high altitude can make it a bit challenging due to lower oxygen levels. We'll take a break midway, where you'll find small shops and a tea stall, before continuing to Dirapuk.

    Upon reaching Dirapuk, you'll be greeted by the majestic sight of Mount Kailash towering on your right. Capture some beautiful photos before heading to your guesthouse near Dirapuk Monastery. The night temperatures can drop below freezing, so dinner will be quick and light (Khichdi, soup, etc.), and you'll rest in your bed for the night.

    Accommodation: Guest House    | Driving duration: 6-8 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 5,210 meters    |    Distance Covered: 6 km Drive, 12 Km walk
  • 08 Trek to Zutulpuk (4,790m)

    Wake up before dawn to catch the first rays of sunlight on Mt. Kailash, presenting the breathtaking 'Golden Kailash' view. After a quick and light breakfast, prepare by filling your flask with hot water and packing snacks for lunch as you embark on the trek towards Zuthulphuk. Today is widely regarded as the most challenging day of the entire journey, featuring a continuous steep ascent to Dolma-La pass (5630 m) and a subsequent steep descent to Gauri Kunda.

    As you approach the Dolma-La pass, you'll encounter colorful prayer flags and personal belongings left behind by pilgrims, a place known as Shiva Tsal (Shiva Sthal). It's believed that those performing the parikrama (circumambulation) should leave something behind here, whether it's a used garment, an ornament, a drop of blood, or a lock of hair. This symbolizes the act of leaving behind one's worldly attachments and seeking liberation from a challenging existence.

    In total, today's trek covers approximately 22 kilometers, leading you to Zuthulpuk Gompa for an overnight stay. Be prepared for a demanding but spiritually enriching day.

    Accommodation: Guest House    | Driving duration: 5-6 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 5,630 meters    |    Distance Covered: 22 Km walk
  • 09 trek to Darchen, Drive to Saga

    On our final day of the Mount Kailash trek, wake up and enjoy a light breakfast before continuing our descent towards Darchen. We'll trek gradually for about 6 kilometers until we reach a point where vehicles are waiting to transport us to Darchen, where other members of our group are also awaiting our return. After some refreshments, we'll embark on a drive to Saga, completing the remaining portion (approximately 30%) of the Lake Mansarovar parikrama by vehicle. You'll have some relaxed time and spend the night at a guesthouse in Saga.

    Accommodation: Guest House    | Driving duration: 6-8 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 5,000 meters    |    Distance Covered: 22 Km walk, 470 km drive
  • 10 Drive to Keyrung

    Following breakfast, we commence our journey towards Keyrung. We'll cross a bridge over the picturesque Brahmaputra River and continue through the expansive Tibetan plains. This journey treats us to breathtaking Himalayan vistas, including notable sights like Shishapangma and the Pieko-Tso Lake. Traveling on well-maintained roads across mountainous terrain, we reach Keyrung for our overnight stay.

    Accommodation: Hotel    | Driving duration: 5-6 Hours    |    Maximum Elevation: 5,000 meters    |    Distance Covered: 110 Km
  • 11 Kyirong to Kathmandu via Rasuwagadhi

    After breakfast, we head towards the Keyrong border. Upon arrival, we'll walk to the Nepalese immigration control point in Rasuwagadi, complete the necessary entry formalities for Nepal, and then transfer to a vehicle waiting on the Nepal side. From there, we'll continue the journey to Kathmandu. The duration of this bus ride may take approximately 7-8 hours or more, depending on road and traffic conditions.

The Nepal-Tibet travel options include air and land routes, each offering its own unique experience and advantages:

Nepal by Road:

Traveling to Tibet necessitates both a Chinese visa and a Tibet Travel Permit, both of which can be facilitated in Kathmandu with the assistance of a travel company, particularly when entering Tibet via Nepal. It's vital to recognize that a valid Chinese tourist visa is distinct from a Tibet Travel Permit. Even travelers possessing a Chinese tourist visa are mandated to secure a Tibet travel permit. This stipulation remains applicable for foreign travelers journeying to Tibet from mainland China as well.

Acquiring the Tibet Travel Permit involves several prerequisites. These encompass enlisting a guide for the entire trip and arranging private transportation for excursions beyond Lhasa. Ventures outside Lhasa mandate supplementary permits, and these are adeptly organized by the travel company you are journeying with. This comprehensive approach is instrumental in ensuring your smooth and lawful access to Tibet, while guaranteeing a fulfilling and well-structured travel experience.

By notifying us during your trip, we are given the opportunity to address and rectify the problem in a timely manner.

Should the complaint not find resolution at the moment of occurrence, we kindly request that you provide a written account of the matter within 30 days following the conclusion of your trip. It is crucial to adhere to this timeframe.
