Temple & Mountain Tours
Tibet » SIMIKOT TO KAILASH MANSAROVER WITH GUGE KINGDOM
21 Days / 20 Nights

The perfect blend of Western Nepal's remote Karnali river valley trekking with the cross-country tour into the cold Tibetan desert. Explore 'Guge Kingdom’, the ancient Tibetan civilization and Mount Kailash, the holiest pilgrimage site in Tibet.

After an adventurous mountain flight to Simikot, the trek begins and weaves across some of the least visited trekking trails in Western Nepal. The trail follows the Karnali River crossing the lush green mountain vegetation intercepted by traditional villages having rich cultural heritage with beautiful Saipal and Nalakankad Mountain Range in the background. After crossing into Tibet, we drive across the wide open spaces of the cold Tibetan Plateau to ‘Guge Kingdom’ (Tholing & Tsaparang), the significant archeological remains of Tibet's ancient civilization. Marveling at the barren yet spectacular landscape of Tibet, we continue driving to the serene and most sacred Lake Mansarovar, before completing a KORA (loop trek) around the holy Mount Kailash. From there, we re-cross the vast arid plains before heading south to the Nepalese border and returning to Kathmandu. The magnificent sceneries blending with the sights of ancient culture makes this an amazing trip that remains sketched in your memories for a lifetime.
