Smikot to Mount Kailash Trek (29 Days)

Since pre-historic time, Mount Kailash has been considered the naval of the universe by Hindus and Buddhists alike. The pyramid-shaped mountain is the source of four rivers: the Sutlej, the Karnali, the Indus, and the Brahmaputra. This trek follows the old pilgrimage and trade route over the Himalayan range from western Nepal onto the Tibetan plateau. Travel in this remote corner of the world is more of an expedition than a trek, but requires no mountaineering skills. The trek begins in Simikot, accessible by air, and heads west towards Yari before crossing the 4,325 m / 14,200 ft Nara La (pass) and into the roof of the world. A vehicle is waiting to take you to Talkakot and Lake Mansarovar (4,558m / 17,716 ft), a holy lake with healing powers. A three-day trek around Mount Kailash, crossing a 5,400m / 14,954 ft pass, allows time to mingle with other pilgrims. The return route crosses the Tibetan plateau by vehicle to Zhangmu, near the Nepal border.
