Mount Kailash tour and Mansarovar Lake Tour are particulrly holy hindu pilgrimage tour. But Mournt Kailash tour is not only for Hinduism, it concerns with all kinds of traveler because Kailash mountain is naturally constructed and shaped in unique style than other mountains. Ritually or naturally it has attracted thousands of pilgrimage non-pilgrimage traveler since it has been opened for tour and trekking.
Kailash was the sacred nine storey Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Sherab alighted from heaven. Four of the great rivers of the Indian subcontinent originates from here: the Karnali, which feeds into the Ganges (south); the Indus (north); the Sutlez (west) & the Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsangpo, east).
Sony travels offer special fixed trips to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasorovar to facilitate pilgrims & foreign tourists. We are probably one of the few outfits that provide Nepali Sherpa staff support for all of our treks in Tibet so as to ensure similar high quality trek services that exist in Nepal. All trips are planned to arrive at Kailash on a full-moon day to obtain total & unhindered view of the holy mountain.
With the opening up of the border crossing between Nepal and Tibet via Taklakot(Purang) in 1994, Mt. Kailash is now accessible for foreign trekkers with 6 days of trekking from the beautiful region of Simikot (3900 M). For this trek we follow the Humla Karnali route and trek through rice and wheat fields, through surging waters of the Humla Karnali, meet well educated friendly monks who speak excellent English and yes, see some of the finest views nature has to offer.
