Overview

Kailash Mansarovar overland tour from Kathmandu, Nepal

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 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, Tirthapuri – Bishnu’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.

Meals, transport, and equipment for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra
 For the Kailash Mansarovar tour, we will arrange a Tibet travel permit for you. We will provide a duffle bag, down jacket, sleeping bag, Bennie, buff. We will provide everyday hot meals prepared by our trained cook ( south Indian, north Indian and mix of western food). Good caring staff to take care, good bus and supporting truck. We will perform Puja and haven at Mansarovar, we provide hot water from Mansarovar at the bank of Lake Mansarovar for the bath at shower tent before puja and havan and prepare prasad. We will bring the havan samagri as well.

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 field of social cause, we have built 153 classrooms after Earthquake, have 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 have 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.

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!

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 need 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 specially 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 you all for this wonderful experience and your commitment to giving your customers the best experience!!!We recently completed this tour and trekking expedition in September 2019 with Mr Rajan Simkhada and his team from Earthbound Expeditions.

Had an amazing trip with the excellent crew led by Rajan Sinkhada 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 details and made our trip very comfortable. Rajan and his crew exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions.

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.
