Overview

Kailash Mansarovar Tour is one of the bestselling travel packages of all time. Some people believe that the tour is highly rated because of its religious importance, but that’s not the case. As per the testimonials from the people who have visited the place in person, Kailash Mansarovar Tour is something surreal; an out of world experience.

The place is beyond the imagination of humankind! With the wilderness, the amusing landscapes, and the divine empowerment of mountains and holy lakes, the Kailash Mansarovar Tour is a conquering trip that rises above any fun and adventure. It’s a battle of your body to cope with the rising elevation while your mind and soul get cleansed with the essence of Mother Nature. So, the journey is a way of self-revelation and self-realization.

Features of Kailash Mansarovar Tour

Kailash Mansarovar Tour takes you right in front of the holy Mt. Kailash that rises high at an elevation of 6675 meters. It allows you to perform “Kora” around the mountains that present you with some stunning natural sceneries and wild mountainous terrain in the backdrop of beautiful Himalayas. Unlike other mountainous countries, the route to Kailash is wild and isolated with Trans Himalayas in Tibet.

The overland drive to Mt. Kailash is full of mountains with views of Buddhist vibes. The prayer flags, monasteries, and people on the way will give you some idea about the Buddhism religion prevalent in the region. Mansarovar Lake is a beautiful lake that lies in the shadows of Mt. Kailash. Many people believe that holy dip into the lake is the ailment to all kinds of ills in the human body.

Mt. Kailash is a source of the longest rivers in Asia! The rivers like Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali are originated from this holy mountain.

The tour starts from Kathmandu Durbar Square, a historical palace that dates back to the 16th century during the Malla reign in Nepal's medieval period. The palace is an enormous complex with a palace, courtyards, and temples. The structure is beautifully crafted with various wood, metal, and stonework. We explore the periphery of the palace and visit a museum inside the palace. After exploring the palace, we head to Swayambhunath stupa, a large stupa placed on a hilltop surrounded by various Buddha statues and monasteries. Next, we drive to Pashupatinath temple, the oldest Hindu temple with many temples and statues that date back to ancient times.

Kailash. The lake water is fresh with many fishes and swans in it. There are other lakes called Raksheesa lake near Mansarovar Lake. While Mansarovar lake is considered pious, we consider the lake water of Raksheesa poisonous. There is no scientific proof, but as per mythology, the Raksheesa lake is created by an evil king Ravana. Tonight, we spend our time near Mansarovar Lake. 

In the early morning, we wake up and take a dip into the lake. As per mythology, a holy dip into the lake is believed to be an ailment for any illness and an act of liberation. After taking a bath, we get into our ride for Mansarovar Parikrama. Then we head towards Tarchen, a small village that lies just in front of Mt. Kailash.

Get ready for the longest and toughest day of our journey.  Leaving Dirapuk, we head towards the village of Jarok Donkhang. From here, we hike up to Shivatal and ascend high to the Dolma Pass. The pass offers some spectacular views of mountains, glaciers, and Tibetan plateaus. We cross the pass and descend steeply towards the bank of Lham chu Khir river. We follow the river and walk towards Khando Sangam La on the eastern side of the Kailash Himal. Finally, we continue our walk until we arrive at the village of Zuthulpuk. Here, we can visit a famous cave with the footprints of Lord Buddha. Tonight, we spend our time at a guesthouse in Zuthulpuk.

Best Days of My Life

I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.

Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.

Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek

All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.

I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.

Wonderful Trekking Experience

My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
