Kailash Mansarovar Tour(12/13 days Kailash tour)

Mount Kailash and Manasarovar Yatra, basically significant for spiritual journey, invites thousands of Hindus every year.  Situated in the China’s Autonomous Region of Tibet, Kailash Parvat and Manasarovar Lake are the epitome of natural beauty as well. That’s why, people who have nothing to do with Hinduism also swarm into the area every year.

According to a myth, a person who once crosses over the Kailash circuit will wash up all his/her sins. And circling Mt. Kailash for 108 times means earns one Nirvana (salvation). According to the description of the Ramayana, a very popular Hindu epic, one who takes bath in Mansarovar Lake makes his/her way to Bramalok (heaven). And the one who drinks water from Kailash knows about the Shivalok (lord Shiva’s abode).

Apart from the mythical background, Mount Kailash has its own speciality. A great mass of black rock at an elevation of 6,714m/22,000f, Mount Kailash is supposedly one of the most fascinating sites in the world to visit. The incredibly sacred site of both Hindus and Buddhists and a must visit site for the tourists, Mount Kailash is also the setting of two great Hindu epics the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.

We start our early morning journey towards the Nepal – China border, driving along the Trisuli river on the Pasang Lhamu highway, on a semi-rough and dirt road. We reach the border town after approx 8-9 hrs drive or lesser, depending on the road conditions. We arrive at Timure town, Rasuwagadri for Nepal immigration formalities. Then crossing the bridge towards the China side, this is point where you will meet your Tibetan guide who will escort you to complete the Chinese immigration formalities, After immigration formalities, you drive all the way to Kyirong town, excitingly starting your journey to the adventure of Western Tibet.

How to book holiday trip in Nepal and Tibet ?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.  Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries).  Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information.  Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.
