A true pilgrimage to the holy mount Kailash in the mythical Tibet. Making a full kora around “the precious jewel of snows” is dream for many Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims and trekkers around the world. According to Hinduism, Shiva, the Destroyer of evil, resides at the summit of this legendary mountain, whereas Tibetan Buddhist believe that Mount Kailash is the home of the Buddha Demchok, who represents supreme bliss.
Our journey starts in Kathmandu, one of the three king cities in Nepal. Here we meet our fellow travelers and we will explore the Kathmandu valley with lots of Hindu temples and Buddhist stupas. Our pilgrimage starts with a seven day trekking from Simikot in Nepal, in the remote western district of Humla. We will walk along the River Karnali, through lush valleys, deep canyons and traditional Nepali villages to reach the border with Tibet. With cars we will drive to the base of Mount Kailash (6714 meter), and will camp on the shores of the holy Lake Manasarovar at 4500 meters altitude. From Darchen we start our 50 kilometer long kora with many other devoted pilgrims. We take four days to complete the kora allowing you plenty of time for the necessary acclimatization as well as a chance to visit the three main monasteries on the base of Kailash. This hard trekking through a bare landscape with the holy Mount Kailash, which is perfectly symmetrical, on our right hand is one of the world’s most fascinating pilgrimages. On day three we climb to the 5670 meter high Dolma-La pass, the highest point of our trekking. After our amazing trekking we drive to Lhasa in three days. The Tibetan highlands are home to traditional herdsmen with their yaks and goats. We might even see pilgrims traveling on foot to fulfill their kora around Mount Kailash. For many, a long time wish becomes true visiting the old Lhasa city. Lhasa is a truly fascinating, with the magnificent Potala Palace as a landmark. The palace is just one of the many interesting places to visit. After a last day in Kathmandu, this “Journey of a Lifetime” comes to an end. With a head full of life changing memories we will travel home again.
Avid - Pilot Trip
This unique trekking is both a physical journey as well as a journey for the soul, and you are ready for it. You have always wanted to submerge yourself in the creative chaotic life of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Once on trail during the first part of this trekking you like the quiet and peaceful routine of walking and camping in the green and lush Western side of Nepal. You like to interact with the locals in the small villages that we pass through, in teahouses, in monasteries, and on the fields.

When you see the Holy Mount Kailash and all the Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims you know you can do it too. To circumnavigate this mountain in four days climber over a 5600 meter high pass will not be easy, but you know it is very rewarding.
