Mt. Kailash Tour via Simikot is located in far-western Nepal; it has to be the remotest place Nepal has to offer. The approach to Mt. Kailash from Simikot takes you through a unique blend of Tibetan Buddhist and Nepalese Gurung cultures. Together with the uncontrived nature and lifestyle of both the regions .i.e. Nepal and Tibet, it truly makes a wondrous trek to give you memories to last for a lifetime.
Mt. Kailash, at 6,740 meters, situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, wholly within Tibet. In ancient texts, it is referred as the center of the world. The reason can be understood from the geographical significance of its place: within 30 miles radius, are the sources of mighty rivers Indus (north called "Sindhu" in India), Sutlej (in west), Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsang-po in east), and Karnali (largest tributary to the Ganges in south). Mt. Kailash has four great faces, which promises one of the best mountain scenery. However, apart from the scenic beauty, it is also the spiritual center for four prominent religions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and a pre-buddhist animistic religion-Bonpo.
While the pilgrims have their defined motive to see the mountain, even the trekkers and adventurers define the tour to Mt. Kailash via Simikot as a different and a unique experience. Let’s plan a great trip to this ancient place together, to see and believe the difference!
