Kailash Mansarovar Tour 14 Days

Trip Information

Nepal is route to the Himalayas and lies perfectly between the highlands and lowlands. Every year thousands of devotees from India and trekkers from across the globe come to Nepal to go to the Kailash Mansarovar lake tour in Tibet. The Nepal way to the place is cheaper and easy as compared to other route to Tibet.

Kailash Mansarovar Lake is situated in the autonomous region of Tibet, some 940 kilometers from Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. Kailash Mansarovar is one of the famous pilgrimage tours among the tourists, mostly the Buddhist and Tibetans. In Tibet, the weather situation from June to September can be expected to be dry and sunny and rainfall in July and August. It is a relatively easier trek and does not require much physical stamina and training, so visitors seem pleased with the tour and the participation is also high. It, however, does require a general physical fitness. Kailash Mansarovar is one of the holy pilgrimage sites in the world and the place is mesmerizing mostly because of the presence of the enchanting lake. Kailash Mansarovar is calm yet grand, similar to a huge bluish- green bright green or a clear turquoise set in between two mighty silver mountains, the Kailash on the North and Mandhata on the South. It’s heaving bosom, reflecting the hues of the vesper sky, on her rising sun or moon, adds a mystic charm, all her to the already mystic charm, all her own to the already mysteriously charming lake. From spiritual point of view she soothes and lulls even the most wondering mind into sublime serenity and transport into involuntary ecstasies. Stretching majestically over an extensive cradled of the Tibetan plateau and hangings at a heavenly height of 14950 ft above the sea level. To know its enormity and greatness, one has to be there.
