Drive Kathmandu to Dzangmu-Kailash-Lhasa (18 days)
Mount Kailash is striking in the way it rises high above the surrounding range and always remains snow-capped, thus its name in Tibetan "Gang Rinpoche", which means "supreme mountain". Traditional Buddhist cosmology has often connected Kailash with Mt. Meru, the great mythological mountain that forms the axis of this world system. The power of this strange, domed peak has gripped the imagination of the people of Nepal, India and Tibet since thousands of years and more peoples from all over the world are willing to see it in reality.
This is one of the best tours for those of time conscious people. You will have extra benefit to visit Tirthapuri at the same time. We drive you to Zangmu the border town, Pigu Tso one of the beautiful Lake of Tibet, Saga, Dongba, Paryang, Lake Manasarovar and all the way back to Kathmandu. The total journey is of 16 day and the maximum elevation is 5630m. You also will have chances to see wild Ass and Tibetan Antelopes.
