Overview of Mt. Kailash Trek via Simikot

Mt. Kailash Trek via Simikot amalgamated together as the pilgrims or travelers trek along the trade route of Nepal and Tibet in the traditional caravan. Mount Kailash is the holy, highly spiritual, tallest Himalayan range, open landscapes, source of four big rivers, untainted nature, and religious holiday place of Tibet.

The journey encompasses the remote land of Western Nepal, i.e., Simikot, as well as the sophisticated cities of Tibet. The trail towards the Tibetan side is also the traditional old salt caravan trade route. Following these conventional routes will remind you of the hardship and dedication put forward by the ancestors in maintaining their lifestyle during those days of their life.

Mt. Kailash Trek via Simikot Highlights

  • Mount Kailash Circuit (Kora Parikrama), i.e., 56 km trail, took almost three days.
  • Manasarovar Lake – spiritual lake in Tibet
  • Natural Hotsprings, Tibetan Monasteries, and Tibetan Medical School at Darchen
  • Trek in the rain-shadow area
  • Trekking in Nepal’s Remote Area

Mt. Kailash Trek via Simikot passes by the diversified climate and forest zones, including the unique culture at every journey step. The beginning of the Mt Kailash trek via Simikot would pass through the lush green forests and later be the vast flatlands of Tibet. Once you have reached Mansarovar lake, you will feel like heaven exists.

After savoring the delights of the Mansarovar, the holy lake, the three days of Kora take place rounding the sacred Mount Kailash Mountain. The mountain is believed to be the home of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. All facets of people in colorful robes make the Kora vibrant and enchanting.

Mount Kailash is the sacred mountain in the Himalayan belt, especially for the four great religions Hindu, Buddhist, Bonpo, and Jain. The place is equally essential in the Ecosystem and originates from the continent’s famous rivers like Indus, Sutlej, Karnali, and Brahmaputra.

Come and make yourself the spiritual self by visiting this historically, religiously, and naturally significant place on the roof of the world Tibet with the astute travel planner Peregrine Treks & Expeditions Pvt. Ltd.
