This classic journey once only undertaken by pilgrims who were ready for a long and arduous travel begins with a flight to the hot plains of Nepali’s Tarai mountain airstirp of Simikot. Spend time acclimatizing and then follow six days though hills and valleys beside the Humla Karnali river to the Tibetan border at Hilsa. An unforgettable trek, where the Tibetan plateau unfolds before you as you cross the Nara Langna Pass. Off road jeeps and support trucks rendezvous with you at Sher on the Tibetan side and soon after Chinese Immigration formalities, you accelerate north to the town of Purang, before nightfall reaching camp on the shores of sacred Lake Manasarowar.   You witness a morning Puja (religious ceremony) at the local monastery and then continue under the shadow of Mt Kailash. From the sacred mountain you move west to an ancient monastery and cave shrine at Gurugem Gompa and then through hot spring country to the ancient Guge Kingdom at Toling through moonscape valleys. The trip takes you to the base of Mt Kailash to begin a 4 days circumnavigation trek with yaks carrying your kit. You final section is heading through turqouise lakes into the subtropical and verdant valleys Zangmu. This adventure ends stepping back on Nepali soil.
