Dolpo Simikot


21 Days 20 Night


Trip Introduction

Few mountains in the world rival the grandeur of Mt. Kailash 6714m, the famed holy peak in Western Tibet. Kailash is regarded as the center of the universe by most of Asia. It is the ultimate Tibetan journey, from the holiest Buddhist Mountain, the sculpted perfection of Kailash, through the serene beauty of the Tibetan plateau. Mt Kailash (6714m) is the holy mountain of Tibet and is the source of the four great Himalayan Rivers. The area is not opened to independent trekkers and was opened very recently to foreign trekkers in an organized group with a special permit through Simikot (Humla) region, the highest and northernmost district of Nepal. Through the main objective of this trek is Mt. Kailash & Manasarovar Lake, the journey through Humla & Tibet both are culturally and scenically rewarding.
