Highlights of mount Kailash tour are sacred Mt.Kailash and holy Lake Manasarovar, which are the most legendary travel destinations in the world. Mt.Kailash has been a religious sanctuary since pre-Buddhist times. The kora (circumambulation/circuit/parikrama) around mount Kailash is one of the most important pilgrimages in Asia. Pilgrims of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Bon believe that one kora around Mt.Kailash cleanses sins of this lifetime; 108 koras breaks the cycle of rebirth and assures one of nirvana at death. And the Lake Manasarovar is believed to clean one's annoyances when he is rinsed by the water.

Mt.Kailash Kora is 52km long, usually takes three days to complete. Altitude ranges from 4675m at Darchen, the starting point to 5630m at Drolma-la, the highest point of the kora. The kora is made in a clockwise direction by Hindus and Buddhists but counter clockwise by followers of the Jain and Bön religions.

GOOD TO KNOW:

HOW TO SAY HELLO AND THANK YOU IN NEPALI

Many Nepalese know Hello and Thank you, but hearing you speak in their language is still a sweet sound of respect. When saying Hello in Nepal, you say “Namaste” and fold your hands into a prayer.  Thank you is “Danyavad”.

HOW TO GET A NEPAL VISA UPON ARRIVAL

Once you arrive at the airport, please follow these simple procedures for Tourist Visa on Arrival.

1st Step. Fill in ' Arrival Card ' ...

2nd Step. Make payment at the bank according to your visa requirement ( 15/30/90 Days) ...

3rd Step. Proceed to the Immigration Desk with your online form, payment receipts and your passport.

AVOID DRINKING TAP WATER

Tap water is not filtered or purified in Nepal. Thus, tap water is often boiled before consumption. It’s best to buy bottled water. It is relatively inexpensive. Avoid any fruits and veggies foods washed in tap water.

ROADS AND DUST

Roads in Nepal can occasionally be in disrepair, due in part to the earthquake. The government is said to be working on improving them. Still, you’ll find large potholes and a lot of dust, especially in the more urban areas of Kathmandu. You’ll see Nepalese wearing face masks when driving on the road. Women cover their faces with saris or scarves.

SQAT TOILETS ARE COMMON IN NEPAL

While westernized hotels and restaurants and tourist attractions have western toilets, you’ll find more local joints and public restrooms bearing squat toilets. 

AVOID STREET FOOD

Nepalese street food has been known to cause many bold adventurers a case of traveler’s stomach issues. Refrigeration is poor in Nepal so street food isn’t always refrigerated and food can be reused after a day of being out.  Stick to well-maintained and busy restaurants.
