Kailash Mansarovar via EBC Tour

The Mt. Kailash Tour stands as the most revered pilgrimage site in the far-western reaches of Tibet. Hindus hold a strong belief that Mt. Kailash is where Lord Shiva resides. It holds a place of utmost importance for Buddhists as well, as they consider it the central point of the universe. For Jains, Mt. Kailash is the revered Mount Ashtapada, a holy site for pilgrimage. Among the Bompo followers, it's seen as the nine-faced swastika mountain, emanating a powerful spiritual energy. Hindus regard Mt. Kailash as Sumeru Parvat, the spiritual hub around which all worldly forces revolve. If earthly places could be compared to heavenly abodes, then Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar would be a celestial treasure. The origin of four great Asian rivers—the Indus, Brahmaputra, Ganges, and Sutlej—can be traced back to the flames of this sacred mountain.

Embarking on the Mt. Kailash and Mansarovar tour via north side of the Everest Base Camp (8848m), your journey begins with your arrival in the Kathmandu Valley (1360m). After briefly exploring the enchanting city of Kathmandu, the route takes you on a scenic drive to Kerong (2700m) at the Nepal-Tibet border. Along this route, you'll be treated to mesmerizing views of the Himalayas, serene glaciers, snow-blanketed landscapes, holy lakes, revered villages, ancient sites, cultural encounters, and the warm hospitality of the local people.

The Kailash pilgrimage tour is an exploration not only of physical landscapes but of the human spirit's capacity for devotion, transformation, and self-discovery. It's a journey that binds diverse faiths, cultures, and aspirations into a shared quest for higher truths. As travelers tread the paths worn smooth by centuries of pilgrims, they find themselves partaking in an ancient communion of reverence, forging connections across time and space, and leaving a piece of their own soul among the echoes of sacred chants and mountain winds.
