Tibet is the most unusual and beautiful place. The majority of its land rests above 3650 meters and is surrounded by mountain ranges on three sides. The awe-inspiring Himalayas are the highest in the world, as is the never-ending Tibetan plateau. It is a place for the rugged adventurer as well as the spiritual.

There is one major route available to entering from Nepal, First, we drive across the Nepal-Tibet border at Kerung and then up onto the Tibetan Plateau and drive continue onto Lake Manasarovar and the sacred Mt Kailash where we take a three-day pilgrimage “kora” around the mount Kailash. The Second entering route to Nepal we begin the trek through the Nepal remote district of Humla –Simikot Narala pass and Hilsa (Nepal Tibet border) drive to Manasarovar Lake and sacred Mount Kailash Kora after Kora continue back to Kerung border and Kathmandu.
