Kailash Tour Company, Kailash Tour Operator Agency in Tibet, Nepal
Mount Kailash is sacred place to Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and followers of the old Bon religion. Every year, thousands of pilgrims tour trek around Kailash and Mansarovarlake. The beautiful holy Himalaya Kailash is surrounded by dry plains, freshwater lakes, and mountain streams. It normally takes about three days for fit and experienced hikers to complete 52 km Kailash Trek due to its altitude of about 5,000 meters. A slow pace and proper acclimatization are required to trekking safely around Kailash. The Kailash yatra is mainly known for a parikrama of Mount Kailash and taking a holy dip in the Mansarovar Lake. These are said to relieve pilgrims of any sins and bringing salvation to them. Manasarovar Lake is considered as one of the holiest lakes in Asia and is an important part of the yatra. This lake is also believed to change colours. While it is clear blue near the shores, it changes to an emerald green colour towards the centre. The lake looks absolutely stunning in moonlight.
Besides Kailash Parbat known as Sumeru Parbat and Lake Mansoravar, other attractions of the yatra are Tirthapuri–an interesting place pilgrims visit post the yatra where they bathe in spring pools, Gauri Kund–also known as the Lake of Compassion, Yam Dwar–the initial point from where the parikrama starts, Asthapad–the bottom of the sacred mountain and Tarboche–the flagpole with numerous prayer flags, a very important part of Tibetan spirituality.
A organize guided tour that is either private or with a group including transportation are most necessary to travel to Mount Kailash and Mansarovar. The access point to Mount Kailash is the village of Darchen that is about three days’ drive from Lhasa. Alternatively, Kailash can be accessed via Kathmandu and Simikot Nepal; however, the border can close without notice, and Nepali roads are in poor condition.
April to mid-October is the best time to travel Mount Kailash Mansarovar lake as the weather is warmest, though it is still cold at the high altitude. In April and October, expect snow and ice on parts of the Kailash trekking route. In July, August, and early September rain is likely.For the rest of time, you will enjoy the blue sky, white cloud, widely different plants.With the average temprature of 9.5℃, reaching up to 10-15℃ in day time, and lowering below to zero in night with a large temperature difference between day and night. A good preparation to bring warm enough trekking gear is necessary before starting the Kailash Mansarovar tour.
There is no hotel which can provide travelers breakfast and room facility of good quality. In fact, only basic dorm beds are available in guesthouses and small inns at remote places. There are no private bathrooms and no water for shower. Those places are always lack of water and electricity due to the poor geography conditions. For this please prepare mentally and physically before the Mount Kailash Tour.
In some extremely remote places, tourists have to stay in tents or local monasteries which might not be clean enough.There is also no fresh vegetables in local and all the ingredients are from big cities like Lhasa and Shigatse. Therefore, the price for a meal is quite expensive. A very sample meal might cost USD 8 to USD 10 per person. For a breakfast, USD 1.5 for a cup of coffee and USD 3 for a cake, it is not enough for a quality breakfast. We will buy some bread, coffee, or milk powder from the supermarket in big cities to improve the poor breakfast.
