Trek the ancient route to Mt. Kailash via Simikot in western Nepal and tour the magical Garuda Valley and Mansarovar Lake

Kailash Tour via Simikot is an excellent journey to Mt. Kailash whereby we experience trekking in one of the most remote western parts of Nepal before entering Tibet.  We arrive in Kathmandu and spend a day resting and preparing for the trip and fly to Nepalgunj, a city in the western Terai plains of Nepal the next day. On our Simikot to Kailash journey, we travel along ancient pilgrimage routes and trade links, trekking across the border into Tibet. The Tibet tour starts with a visit to the Garuda valley, a place believed to be the cradle of the Tibetan civilization during the ancient times when Bon religion was practiced throughout Tibet, long before Buddhism was introduced. Next, we circumambulate Mt. Kailash and tour Mansarovar Lake, both of which hold great natural, cultural and religious significance. The Kailash Tour via Simikot ends in Lhasa which is called the ‘cradle of Tibetan civilization.

For Your Information, International flights aren’t included.  Rooms are usually shared by two people unless you request a private room. Also, you can upgrade to better hotels in the mountain and even in the cities. For your customized services, please specify during the booking process or contact our Destination & Products Specialist.


We will be served breakfast in hotels in Kathmandu, Nepalgunj and Tibet whereas all meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided during the trek (in Nepal). A basic meal during trekking in Nepal will include rice, potatoes, noodle with soup, etc. However, note that we will not be provided any meals in Tibet. Therefore, it is better to set aside a food budget of up to $20- $30 for lunch and dinner per day while in Tibet.


We will be staying in   Yatri Suites & Spa or similar in Kathmandu, Hotel Siddhartha in Nepalgunj and teahouses during trek. While trekking in Nepal (Simikot to Hilsa), it should be understood that the area is developing so the accommodation facilities there will be fairly basic. Therefore, we can decide to either stay in the local tea houses or in tents (which will be arranged by Himalayan Glacier). Accommodations in Kathmandu, Nepalgunj and Tibet (except trekking) will be on twin-shared basis but while trekking (both in Nepal and Tibet), you will be accommodated in a common dormitory.
Single Supplement : USD 650
