The Mt. Kailash is regarded as the holy place of Hindu deities Shiva the lord of power and destruction and Parvati the divine beloved of the Lord Shiva. The Mt.

They lie to the western part of Tibet. A saying in Hindu religion is that the mountain and the lake are the purgatory. It is said that at the sight of the Mt. Kailash and the lake Manasarovar, a man will be released form his sins committed knowingly or unknowingly. The kora or the circular path is attempted through Dolma La (pass) at an altitude of 5630meter high.
The trip begins by drive from Kathmandu to the Tibetan border at Zhangmu and continues to Nyalam. After our stay in Nyalam, we drive to the Lake Manasarovar across widely spread open spaces of the Tibetan Plateau known as roof of the world. Then we make our most fascinating trip to Mt. Kailash and follow the track across vast arid plains for Nepalese border lies to the south. Finally, we take the trip back to Kathmandu.
