KAILASH  MANSAROVAR YATRA

Kathmandu-> | Nyalama ->| Saga->| Prayang->| Darchen->| Mt. Kailash -> | Maansarovar Lake->| Kadhmandu->| Day = 18

This is a journey to one of the most isolated regions of Tibet, and yet ironically both Hindu and Buddhist consider it to be the centre of the world, both physically and mentally.    
Mt Kailash (6068m) is the holiest mountain in Tibet- it is the throne of the gods' The Indus Brahmaputra, Sutlij and Kamali rivers begin their journey to the plains of India and Pakistan from here. This is the ultimate pilgrimage site for Hindus, and Buddhists, who come to circle the holy mountain and bathe in the freezing waters of Lake Mansarovar.    
We  begin our journey from Kathmandu. crossing the crest of the Himalaya, follow the Tsang Po (Brahmaputra), river, then cross the lapchuna Kangri Range, enjoying stunning views of the northern slopes of the Great Himalayan Range past several lakes and on to Mt Kailash, Once here we will trek around Mt Kailash, upto grandeur of the scenery is unbelievable. Be prepared to travel on rough roads for long distances, though scenery of magnificent isolation (bar the pilgrims and Yak herders!), unbelievable mountain views.
