Kailash Mansarovar overland yatra/tour from Kathmandu, Nepal

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra 13 days, Kathmandu to Kerung or Naylam - Saga - Mansarovar Kailash and back Kathmandu same route.
Revel in a once in a lifetime spiritual journey to the most famous religious sites in Tibet embracing two of the sacred pilgrimage places for disciples of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and the Bon religion, holy Mount Kailash and Mansarovar lake, and take advantage of our experience and expertise as Earthbound Expeditions have been taking people with love & care since 1999 to Kailash Mansarovar.

As one of the most reputed and trusted travel companies to organize the Kailash Mansarovar yatra / tour Earthbound Expeditions have designed this 13 days itinerary that starts in Kathmandu with Pashupatinath darshan and goes to Kailash Mansarovar overland via Nepal – Chia Boarder Kerung / Naylam and back via the same route. This is the shortest, cheapest and reliable classic route to Kailash Mansarovar. If you wish to do Via Lhasa or via Simikot Hilsa west Nepal we can also organize that.

Mount Kailash (6,638 m), prevalent to Hindus as Kailash Parvat, is the most sacred Himalaya of Asia that carries holy and religious importance. Hindus believe the Kailash Parvat is the abode of Lord Shiva, that is why he is known as Kailashpati Mahadev. Not only for Hindus, but the peak is also divine to Buddhist, Jain and Bonpo religions as well. Spread out on the Tibetan plateau alongside Mount Kailash and connected to nearby Lake Rakshastal by the natural Ganga Chhu channel, is the giant lake of shifting colors – Lake Mansarovar. A pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and a holy bath in the Mansarovar is believed to bring salvation (Moksha) and wipe away all the sins acquired during a journey of life.

The spiritual tour to such glorious sites; Kailash and Mansarovar goes through many routes. We pass via Kerung to crossing over China border. Although nowadays tour to Mt. Kailash Mansarovar is a lot easier some people may find it challenging, and even more, difficulties come when you circumambulate ( Parikrama or Khora of Kailash) the peak of the mountain Kailash, therefore, don’t forget to prepare yourself correctly, both mentally and physically, before joining the Kailash Mansarovar journey.  However, whoever feels complications doing the Kailash parikrama, there is a possibility of hiring a horse or Yak to ride at extra cost.

Besides Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar Parikrama, TirthapuriBishnu’s place where Sutlej river flow, Gauri Kund – the lake of compassion, Yama Dwar – the initial point of Mt. Kailash parikrama, Shivastal, Asthapad – the bottom of the consecrated mountain and Tarboche – the flagpole, Sky Burial is the major highlights of this journey.

Mount Kailash and Guge Kingdom I did my second trip to Mount Kailash with Earthbound Expeditions this time with the Guge Kingdom and as per my first trip, this was an excellent one too. In my opinion, Earthbound Expeditions are the masters in their field and if you're thinking of booking with then, don't think, just do it. You will not be disappointed by this friendly and professional company. Thanks, Jasmin.



Simply the best! Way better than I expected. This is the best agency I have been with. They gave a personal touch to everyone in our group of 25. They accommodated all our requests and most of all they are always friendly with a smile and ready to serve! Truly amazing. Everyone (11 of them) in the group providing services to 25 of us are extremely dedicated to make every one of us comfortable and taken care of. I can not imagine any better group of people who believe in the trip and are so dedicated.

Excellent Manasarovar and Mount Kailash trip with Earthbound Expeditions I had an amazing trip with the excellent crew led by Rajan Simkhada of Earthbound Expeditions. It was a two weeks trip to Mount Kailash and Manasarovar with 38 km hike and site seeing in Tibet and Nepal. The Earthbound expedition team took care of every possible detail and made our trip very comfortable. Rajan and his crew exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions.



Outstanding Mount Kailash experience with Earthbound Expeditions Mr Rajan Simkhada is such a pious man that we were highly blessed to have him with us throughout our Manasarovar Mount Kailash trip. He was very professional and helpful right from the beginning. He dealt every single detail with so much ease and positive energy. Like many expressed, 5 stars are not enough to describe our experience with Earthbound Expeditions We were a team of 27 from USA and we were 200% taken care of by Mr. Rajan and his awesome crew. Every detail was taken care of from the moment we arrived Lhasa till we left Kathmandu. Entire Rajan's crew including Arjun, Dorjee, Ram, Sargi, Gokul, Narayan and the rest were amazing in taking care of our team, exceptionally. Our kudos to them. Except for Parikrama lunch, we were served clean, hot, delicious meals throughout our trip! It was amazing to see such a positive attitude crew. The rest of the world has a lot to learn from that team - just like we did. Our guide Kumar in Nepal was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job explaining the sights to us. I highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions and I can not imagine any of our future arduous trips without them.

The Above and Beyond Earthbound Expeditions Team We just returned from Manasa Sarovar and Mount Kailash trip to the US. The trip would not have been so successful without the loving care of Rajanji and his (Nine Jewels ) team. Narayanji the chief chef is better than the best. The hot food he server was nothing short of divine. We cannot forget Ram and his magic potion, the little secret of our health. All we can say is Annadatha Sukhi Bhava. The team monitored our health and oxygen levels and gave such revitalizing head massages that any fatigue and pain vanished in minutes. Arjunji's mother like and tender attention was a major factor in 100% success of the trip. God knows when they would sleep and wake up and prepare hot food for us. Amrith, Gopal, Deepak, Ram, Sherpa, Arjun, and others watched our every step and made sure that every one of us was safe and doing good while hiking. Hats off to all of you sir. You gave us the best of service and have helped us have a lifetime experience and memories. Rajanji, a spiritual seeker and author of wonderful spiritual books, who shared his wisdom whenever opportunities arose. Traveling with him and discussing spiritual aspects during this journey was like the icing on the cake. The entire journey was a great learning and humbling experience. Given the time I would not hesitate to go on each and every trip The Earthbound Expeditions would offer. I would highly recommend Rajanji's services and his Earthbound Expeditions team to all of my friends and family anytime.

Blissful Kailash Manasarovar Yatra Looking for an absolutely blissful and stress free trip to Manasarovar and Mt Kailash? Then Earthbound Expeditions under the leadership of Mr. Rajan Simkhada is the perfect travel agency for you. My husband and I are extensive travelers and we have used several travel agencies over the past 20 years. I must say that Rajan and his team are by far the best in all aspects – making group travel arrangements, providing crisp communication throughout the planning process, nailing down clear schedules, lining up local contacts, getting all the required permits and of course ensuring the comfort of travelers throughout the trip. The team always had a smile on their faces, were efficient and provided great personal service like providing delicious hot meals every day, monitoring our health daily, helping us pack up our duffle bags in the morning, ensuring we were warmly dressed and constantly reminding us to stay hydrated. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and Rajan and his team made it very easy for us to achieve it. I highly recommend them for your trip!
