Overview

Holy Mt. Kailash Mansarovar Yatra – A Journey To Heaven…

Join our 14 days Kathmandu – Lhasa – Kailash – Kerung / Naylam – Kathmandu tour and take advantage of our experience and expertise to enjoy the ultimate pilgrimage Kailash Mansarovar yatra.

We have been taking 1000’s of people from, UK, USA, India, Australia and around the world to Kailash Mansarovar for the last 20 years with love and care.

Kailash Mansarovar is such a holy land that the Skanda Purana (Hindu Ritual Text Book)  wrote below quote on 6th Century BC … “As the dew is dried up by the morning Sun so are the sins of human beings by the sight of Himalaya, Holy Mt Kailash” – Skanda Purana (Hindu Ritual Text Book) – 6th Century BC

A pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and a bath in the Mansarovar is believed to bring about salvation (Moksha) and washed away all the sins of life.

The Lord  Shiva’s mountain Kailash appears majestic with the surrounding of many smaller cliffs resembling the attendant divines of the Lord like Lotus bud or a crown, which looks like a natural pyramid.

Kailash is one of the most popular Hindu pilgrimage sites in the Himalayan region dedicated to Lord Shiva and Braham’s lake Mansarovar. Mount Kailash, believed to have formed 30 million years ago when the Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most revered places in the Himalayas.

Lake Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash are two of the holiest pilgrimage areas to devotees of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Bonism and many other faiths. Each year thousands of devotees undertake a journey of a lifetime through the mountains and plains of Nepal and China (Tibet) to reach this sacred land.

Mt. Kailash is situated to the north of the Himalaya in Tibet, a perfect mountain with incredible beauty, with four great different faces. It is the spiritual center for four major religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion – Bonpo. For the Hindus, Mount Kailash is the earthly manifestation of Mt. Meru, their spiritual center of the universe, described as a fantastic ‘world pillar’ 84,000 miles high, around which all else revolves, its roots in the lowest hell and its summit kissing the heavens.

On the top live their most revered God, Shiva (Paramashiva, Kailashapati, MahaRudra), and his consort Parvati. For the Jains, an Indian religious group, Kailash is the site where their first prophet achieved enlightenment. For the older, more ancient religion of Bon, it is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven.

Spread out on the Tibetan plateau beside Mount Kailash is the giant lake of shifting colors – Lake Mansarovar. Brahma, the creator, had a mind (Man) for the creation of a lake (Sarovar), hence its name Mansarovar.

Over the centuries pilgrims have journeyed continuously immense distances to achieve enlightenment or cleanse themselves of sin, braving enormous distances, unusually harsh weather and bandit attacks. People have been visiting Kailash – Mansarovar for centuries. It used to be an arduous journey in the past; today we (Earthbound Expeditions) can bring you there with the help of land cruisers via Kathmandu. So it is a lot easy to reach to heaven now!

Our 14 days Kailash Mansarovar Yatra adventure begins with the drive across the Himalaya west into Tibet to Holy Lake Mansarovar. Here you will join the throngs of pilgrims who, for centuries, have converged on this remote southwestern corner of Tibet to circumambulate the sacred mountain, considered to be the center of the universe by Hindus and Buddhists alike. Kailash enjoys great popularity the folk religion of Tibet – it is the soul of the country and assures protection for all Tibetans.

The fountainhead of four great Asian rivers (Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali), few mountains reveals Kailash for its mystique, isolation, and prominence, for three days you will walk with pilgrims around this almost perfectly symmetrical peak before the trek back into Nepal.

Your Mount Kailash pilgrimage tour pioneered by Earthbound Expeditions takes you into northern riches of the country where only a few trekkers have walked these trials, unchanged over the ages. The encounter with the herders, pilgrims and the local people will be lively and make for precious memory. It is an experience of a lifetime!

If you wish to add Everest base camp, Tibet, in your itinerary that will add 2 more days in the above itinerary. If you wish to include  Charan sparsa – close up view of Mt. Kailash   ( also considered as part of Inner Kailash Parikrama) need to add 1 more days for the whole trip. Please contact us for customized Kailash Mansarovar itinerary and cost.

Take advantage of our knowledge and expertise as Earthbound Expeditions have been taking people to Kailash Mansarovar safely last 20 years. Everyone claims they do operate Kailash Mansarovar tour but many of them are booking agents only, they take some commission and hand over groups to local agents.

There is a saying that “Everyone dances but some person dance better”, everyone signs but some singers are better. Similarly, everyone runs tours but we run and manage it better.

Our business is more passion-driven than profit-driven, another good reason to travel with us is we work in the field of social cause, we have built 153 classrooms after Earthquake, have to build many schools and libraries, run some health camps kindly see the link – https://enepaltrekking.com/csr/our-business-is-more-passion-driven-than-profit/ so you have helped an organization that has corporate social responsibilities.

Earthbound Expeditions is recommended by lonely planet, Trip Advisor, Newyork Times, the Guardian and many other national and international newspapers and magazines for our good services. The leader and co-owner of the company Mr. Rajan have successfully lead the trip to Kailash Mansarovar over 18 times and all the strong supporting team we have are trained and professionals with many years experience in the Himalayan expeditions.

Holy Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar

This is the first trip I've ever done with Earthbound Expeditions and I have to say it was a great one. In the style of an expedition, this pilgrimage (yatra) was well planned including the management of itinerary, visas, and management of changes as situations arose. The ground team is knowledgeable and the trek team are just awesome, from the trip leader to the local guides to the porters and right through to the food, being vegetarian can sometimes be difficult on travels, but this is certainly not the case with Earthbound Expeditions. It's a pretty basic trip but is fully packed with amazing delights and sights, it's hard work at times but is definitely worth it. Nepal is safe to travel to and this trip is definitely a fantastic one...go on, give it a go!

Team Badri....outstanding!!

I have just returned from a second trip using Earthbound Expeditions and can't wait to return again. This time I joined the Kailash pilgrimage because I was keen to visit the Tibetan landscape and I was not disappointed. In Kathmandu we visited Pashupatinath, Buddha Nilkantha, Boudhanath and Swayambhanth with Resham a very knowledgeable guide. Next day we left for Tibet. With Badri on his 46th trip to Kailash, the whole trip ran smoothly nothing too much trouble and every diet catered for by his amazing staff who joined us in Tibet. In the thin air we were 'encouraged' to eat and drink in order to alleviate altitude sickness, making the trip safe and relaxed in the knowledge we were in good hands. The team including Kedar, Arjun, Maule, Sarki, Narayan, Norbu and drivers and they always had a reassuring smile and nothing was too much trouble for our sometimes demanding group. We had to change part of the pilgrimage trek due to weather (snow) but this was done and alternate plans made calmly without any fuss. There was always someone nearby to give you a helping hand or encouragement on the trek. The Tibetan scenery is breathtaking at times and it's raw beauty made it a truly memorable journey. Back in Kathmandu I chose to stay again with Rajan in his home on the edge of the Raniban forest (See Himanshu Homestay) and was I invited to join in celebrations for an upcoming wedding making the experience unique and enjoyable. A truly professional company dedicated to making your dreams come true! Thank you.

Kailash Manasarovar trip via Lhasa

I traveled with Earthbound Expeditions just a couple of weeks ago for my Kailash Manasarovar trip. I was extremely pleased with their service, attention to detail, excellent arrangements, efficiency and excellent guides. There was no hitch anywhere on the trip. The superb guides (Arjun and Kedar) were always the first up and last to bed and they made sure that every individual in our group of 19 cared for.....and they did this with smiles and excellent good humor. They made sure that everyone followed the guidelines to stay healthy and minimize the possibility of altitude sickness. One lady in the group fell sick during the Parikrama/Kora and she was provided prompt and immediate medical attention and she was evacuated to Darchen at her request. I remember one incident very distinctly - Arjun and Kedar walked patiently with two guests who took a substantial amount of time to complete the hike to Zutulphuk on the second (toughest) day of the Parikrama - once the guests were in their room, the guides brought them buckets of hot water to soak their feet! Now, that, in my opinion, is true service and going beyond the call of duty. Rajan and Badri, two of the owners of the outfit were also very responsive to queries and concerns and made every effort to address/remedy concerns and to reassure anyone who was not feeling fully confident. It turns out that several of the people I traveled with did not have a decent day pack. Believe it or not, the guys at Earthbound simply went out and bought twenty high-quality day packs and let the guests use them! This, again, in my experience is and amazing level of service. Needless to say, I am extremely satisfied and would recommend Earthbound expeditions highly to anyone contemplating hikes in the Himalayas.

Trekking in Mt Kailash region

Organization with an Excellent management skills whom you can trust for trekking - prep stage and actual trekking Rajan their main guy is easy to communicate with. Very propmpt in answering all issues/concerns you have with trekking. Also did trekking in lower annapoorna range (Mukhthinath) along with Arjun who is very knowledgable about the region and with his very good PR with local guys he could make the trekking very interesing. An excellent team who attends to all details while trekking and ensure all your requirements are met within available resources. My only complaint missing Everest Base Camp in their planning. Sure going forward they will include EBC in their plan I will definitely recommend this outfit to my friends and relatives. I also thank Tripadvisor and NY times for their endorsements which really influenced me in picking up Earthbound Expedition and realized I am in safe hands without any doubt God Bless you all at Earthbound Expeditions and carry on the great work.

Kailash Manasarovar Yatra

Me and my husband with our friends travelled with Earthbound expeditions last month . This Yatra is considered one of the toughest Yatra. We heard about lots of difficulties faced by our friends in the past with other tour organizations so we were worried and anxious about the whole journey and the difficulties we will face during the whole trip. But Earthbound Expeditions made this entire trip very enjoyable, safe and fun experience. Their guides and other staff (Kedar, Rajanbhai,Arjun,Gokul, Narayan ) were very helping , pleasant and caring. They were prepared for any mishap. They handled few of our sick trip members extremely well.Their attention to details during the entire journey from food to medical care was just unbelievable. They all made our dream come true 🙏💐

Mansarovar & Mt.Kailash Parikrama

I recently completed the 15-day trip. All I can say is the trip and trekking experience were beyond par, thanks to earthbound expeditions. They were simply amazing. From the moment we arrived at the airport in Kathmandu, a team member was waiting to transport us to our hotel. The accommodation the whole way up the mountain and back was great and the food was also great everywhere we stayed and we were able to make menu changes if we need. Our guides Kedar, Arjun and our cook Gopal, were all great and friendly and helpful the entire way. They stayed close to everyone and made sure we were well taken care of physically and mentally Overall the experience we had trekking and horse riding to Mt. Kailash was exceptional from start to finish. I intend to return to go back to Mansarovar with my husband to island peak and I will definitely be doing it through earthbound when I return. If you are considering a trip to Everest base camp use them, I would highly recommend them.

Wonderful Kailash Tour

The only tour agency I'll ever use! Earthbound Expeditions exceeded mine and our tour groups expectations! They a delivered 5* service throughout our 20 days with them. From the very start, they gave of the best impressions, answering any questions we had quickly and clearly. We had a group of 24 that went on the Mt Kailash and Lake Manasarovar tour. Earthbound went above and beyond to organise a wonderful tour based on our wants and needs. Upon arrival in Nepal, we were greeted in a lovely manner and treated so well by all the Earthbound team. There's nothing about Earthbound I can fault. Accommodation was great, food was amazing and the Earthbound team, well they are spectacular. Some of the best people you'll have the pleasure of meeting! Each member of staff treats you like family, and after 20 days with them you end up becoming a family! That's the beauty of Earthbound Expeditions, they treat you how they would treat their families and that's what makes the trip an even more enjoyable one. Reaching Mt Kailash and Lake Manasarovar is no easy task. It's days of travelling, acclimatising and taking in breathtaking views! Rajan, Mr Earthbound himself, made the long journeys the most enjoyable ones. His endless jokes, knowledge and signing passed the time by. The entire team, like I said before were just amazing. If you're thinking of any Expeditions or treks in the near future, Earthbound Expeditions must be your go to! There is nothing I fault about this company. Everyone on our tour had the most amazing time and it's all down to how well Earthbound planned, organised and executed everything. Thank you Rajan, Arjun, Bharat, Kedar, Badri and all the other boys for an amazing, truly once in a lifetime trip!

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.

Wonderful Mansarovar Yatra and Kailash Parikrama

We recently completed this tour and trekking expedition in September 2019 with Mr. Rajan Simkhada and his team from Earthbound Expeditions. We were a group of 27 people and I have to say that this team surpassed all our expectations. Looking back, we couldn't have asked for a better tour company for this mentally and physically challenging trekking expedition. Mr. Rajan and his team were very accommodating to individual group member’s needs and went above and beyond to cater to our comfort and convenience. They were flexible, personable and very attentive to the minutest and the biggest details of our travel. A bright smile on their faces and cheerful dispositions kept our spirits high all the time, but especially during the arduous ‘parikrama’ days. Food was amazingly delicious and was cooked fresh daily by Chef Narayan and his helpers. Crew members RAMJI, SHERPA TERKI, and GOKUL made sure that each person ate well and we were all well hydrated. Highlight of the day used to be head and neck massage by ARJUN every evening while checking our Oxygen levels. I am looking forward to doing future trips with Mr. Rajan and his team @ Earthbound Expeditions!! Thank you so much all for this wonderful experience and your commitment to giving your customers the best experience!!!

Outstanding Mount Kailash experience with Earthbound Expeditions

Mr Rajan Sinkhada 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.

Amazing Earchbound Expeditions team

Manas Sarovar and Mt. Kailash Parikrama with the amazing Rajan Sinkhada’s earthbound expeditions team! We are a group of 27 U.S. nationals, known friends and families with two doctors out of 27, who went on this trip. Rajan’s team lead by himself with his daily prayers in the morning and end of the day briefing in the evening took care of each of us with personalized care. Rajan’s right hand Dorjee handled all the security checkpoints and permit issues so smoothly that we felt like we are in the U.S. Rajan’s customer service team lead by Arjun, took care of each one of us, whether it is monitoring our oxyzen levels daily or offering medical care or providing head messages to get rid of minor headaches or what not. Rajan’s cook Narayanji is so special. His team paid personal attention and offered no onion and garlic food to some and all vegetarian food to others while providing hot food anywhere to our amazement. With limited guidance, he and his team learned some South Indian dishes and offered them as well. Rajan’s customer service team lead by Ramji gave us hot chai to hot breakfast and ensured that we do not carry any bags and retain our depleted oxygen levels to complete a successful trip. Sri. Rajan surrounded us with positive energy and once we met Sri. Rajan that we never had a doubt even once that we may not be able to complete such an amazing Mt. Kailash Parikrama. I personally would not hesitate to use their services again and highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions to any of my friends and family anytime.

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.

Amazin experience -Thanks to Rajan and his crew

Thanks and Rajan and his crew we enjoyed the trip. Perfect team that mixed with us like family and provided service always with a smile and ensured all our needs are met - some times even before we asked. One thing we can say Positively is Rajan’s crew can make your experience memorable. In a day or two they are intimately familiar with all 27 of us spanning from likes dislikes to our health issues and took care of us and did necessary checks even before we asked. Another major plus point is food service. We all thought maybe we gained weight by the end of the trip. They did an excellent job and we used to look forward to food and to briefings and program details. Overall they have a wonderful crew and the fact that we think of them as part of our group rather than service organization reflects how good they are.

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!

We will definitely visit Nepal and Tibet again

Dear Mr. Simkhada, We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us realize our lifelong dream of circumambulating Mount Kailash and taking a bath in Lake Manasarover. The 35 days trip that you planned and led for the two of us plus Ms. Lydia Kersbergen, Holland, was beyond our expectations. (May 16 thru June 20, 2004. Las Vegas – Kathmandu – Naylam – Saga – Parang – Manasarovar – Darchen – Mt Kailash – Tharpoche – Tingri – Mt. Everest Base Camp – Lhatse – Shigatse – Gyantse – Lhasa- Kathmandu – Las Vegas) Your team of three Nepalese and three Tibetans worked very well together. In fact, within a few days of the journey, we were all like one big family. Our Toyota Landcruiser driver, Mr. Tsering, is one of the best drivers and mechanics that I have ever met. He made us feel very safe thru all those treacherous mountain passes. Out Tibetan guide, Mr.Tenthar was very helpful and eager to please. His attitude made up for his basic English speaking skills. Our Nepalese cook, Mr. Gambu Sherpa, made such wonderful food throughout the trip that we were afraid of gaining weight! Thanks to Mr. Gambu, we had three real fresh baked cakes to celebrate our anniversary, my birthday and our farewell. We also want to thank you for taking time off from your busy schedule and personally accompanying us throughout the journey and helping us with the three-day trek around Mt. Kailash. I don’t think we would have been able to complete the three-day trek by own feet at our age without your constant guidance and help We will definitely visit Nepal and Tibet again. We hope to do next year the lodge-to-lodge trekking in Nepal. Once again, thank you for the successful planning and leading of our once-in-a-life spiritual journey and trekking adventure. P.S. If you want you can use us as reference if any body want to call us or e-mail us to talk directly they are welcome!

I had many interesting encounters

Dear Rajan and other staffs in Earthbound Expedition, Namaste! This is Megha. I came back to my home on 11th safely. After that, I visited my parents’ home and I stayed in their house more than one week. I could not send e-mail till now, because my parents do not have a computer in their house. The journey to Mt. Kailash and Lhasa tour was so great. And I had many interesting encounters while my staying in Nepal. My travel this time was fruitful. On the day I left Nepal, the car came to pick me up at my hotel just on time. Thank you very much for everything you took care of me. My flight to Japan was good. In Japan, the rainy season finished a few days after my coming back to Japan, and it is so hot every day now. The highest temperature of the day is about 34 – 36 in my city. How is it in Kathmandu now? Does the rainy season in Kathmandu continue till August? Please be careful of your health. I really hope to see you again. Namaste!

Devotion in Service and Support : Mansarovar and Kailash Trip

Words are very limited to express our gratitude for the excellent service and support we got throughout our Manasarovar and Kailash trip . Trip showed us personally many facets of devotion in service and support, sustainability and spirituality in Rajanji and his team. Without the dedicated service of taking care of our comforts, physical trekking and spiritual pilgrimage of Manasarovar and Kailash would have been impossible. Our every day trip started and ended with Rajanji’s beautiful chants and his melodious “Om Mani Padme Hum” Buddhist prayer. Rajanji and his crew of Arjun bhayya, Ram bhayya, Dorji, Narayan, Gokul, Serge, Amrit and rest of them took care all the days serving us most delicious(fresh and hot cooked food almost all the time of the tour with comfort foods like pongal, bhel puri, pav bhaji, chutneys, fresh yogurt, ghee, yummy chai and more …), satvik Indian/Nepalese food! Very simple gestures of reminding us to be hydrated, checking our health (oxygen levels, medical needs…)every day , getting head and shoulder massages for most of us are on everyday basis made us all a family during this trip. We felt the Parikrama started from day one with so much of divinity in Rajanji’s team towards our group of 27 friends. We truly felt blessed everyday of our trip. Physical challenges of the high altitude, cold weather, long walks and not to forget nature calls during the week of Parikrama was possible for us due to Earthbound expedition team dedication. Rajanji was always open for special requests (thank you for satisfying our sweet tooth at a whim’s notice) or accommodations changes. Final Nepalese dinner with traditional dances was a sweet ending to our trip. Looking forward to making more trips with Earthbound team! sincerely, Bharathi & Tikkana

A trip to Mt Kailash and Manasarovar is not any other ordinary travel. It’s logistic challenge and physically & mentally draining. That’s when the Earthbound Expeditions makes it as smooth and comfortable as possible. Working with our team for almost 12months leading to the trip in Sept ’19, Mr Rajan has provided all details and let us customize the trip to suit our needs. But the biggest surprise has been from the time we landed in Lhasa till the time we left Kathmandu. The entire crew of Earthbound Expeditions have ensured we had a fantastic experience. They have literally pampered us in every aspect and taken care of any special request we had. Mr Rajan is an epitome of positive and “make it happen” attitude. And he leads his team from the front. Needless to say, we had an experience of a life time, thanks to Mr Rajan and his crew. They deserve Ten Stars for their customer service and for ensuring every little detail has been taken care of. I would not think twice to go with them on any trip conducted by them.
