Overview

Join Holy Mt. Kailash Mansarovar tour with Earthbound Expeditions that brings you Mansarovar and Kailash area on full Moon day 
Come join us for 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 15 days itinerary that starts in Kathmandu with Pashupatinath darshan and goes to Kailash Mansarovar overland via Lhasa and exit Nepal – Chia Boarder Kerung / Naylam route. This is one of the cheapest and reliable classic route to Kailash Mansarovar. If you wish to do tour all overland 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, 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 yatra.  However, whoever feels complications doing the Kailash parikrama, there is a possibility of hiring a horse or Yak to ride at extra cost. Up to Mansarovar Lake and  Tharboche/ Yama Dwar ( the initial point of Mt. Kailash parikrama)  people can drive, no need to walk.

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 Tharboche – 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.

About Kailash and Mansarovar Parikrama ( Kora) : 

We can drive all the way to Mansarovar by bus. The Parikrama of the Mansarovar we will do by bus( the bus provided by Nagri Kailash tourism Authority) and for Kailash Parikrama ( Kora) we will drive up to Tharboche – Yama Dwar and from there we will walk for 3 days.

After the ascent Dolmala Pass, your breathtaking decent you will greet you with a blue lake Gaurikund. (Regrettably only an experienced mountaineer can access this spot.) Your decent of 6km is slippery so please be cautious and be walk steadily. Please use your walking stick to reach to the valley floor.
