Description:
We do not climb Mount Kailas, but circle the mountain in a three to four day walk. After a west Nepal trek from Simikot, of 7 days, which also serves as an acclimatisation period, we travel by road through Charikot and the to Kailas. This allows us a visit to lakes Manasarovar and Rakas Tal. After, trekking clients drive to Lhasa (Tibet) whilst climbers may return south to Gurla Mandata (7700 meters).
