Trip Details

This amazing journey is a breathtaking adventure that takes you through some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see as you trek up on to the Tibetan plateau through the eastern Himalaya. Once in Tibet for Simikot-Kailash-Zhangmu Tour,  you join a jeep for the drive to the holy Mount Kailash where you can join the hundreds of pilgrims in making the short but strenuous circuit of this holy mountain. You will be sure to witness scenes and scenery that will live in your head for your entire life time.

Flight to Simikot or fly back from Simikot is more weather depended and it is better to use one way only since you need to follow the same trail on the way back. Following the Karnali River valley it is one of the nice trail to follow. Since the road from Tibet is planned to connect with simikot airport, this trail will not be trekking trail any more in years to come. High mountain lives, green river valley, sheep and yaks heard, snow-cap mountains, this is really one of the nice treks in Nepal.
