Mount Kailash Spiritual Tour 

13 Nights/14 Days – Kerung – to – Kerung


We know Mt. Kailash as ‘Khang Rimpoche’ which means ‘Precious Jewel of Snow’. Mt. Kailash lifetime spiritual tour, at (6,714m/22,028ft) is a magnificent mountain of beauty and grace. It has four great cardinal faces – the northern face represents gold, the western face – ruby, the southern face -sapphire and the eastern face – crystal. This mountain is the centre of four religions and is sacred to millions. Thousands of pilgrims circle this mountain every year but no one attempts to climb this mountain for mythical religious beliefs. Holy Mt. Kailash overland tour is a spiritual ‘Mecca’ of Hindu-Buddhist-Jain and Bon religions.

Hindus believe that Mount Kailash is the holy abode of ‘lord Shiva’; however, Jains call it the mountain of ‘Astapada’ and believe it to be the place of Tishaba. Likewise, Bon followers call it the mountain of ‘Tishe’ and believe it is the seat of Sipaimen – ‘Sky Goddess’. The Mt. Kailash Mansarovar overland Tour takes place via different routes of Nepal, Tibet and India. The easy route to Mt. Kailash is from Kodari border but sadly, it did not open after the devastating earthquake in 2015.

The new Kailash tour via the Kerung border is now the new optional route to reach the sacred mountain. However, this will only open to visitors in 2018. Kerung, at (2900m) is a pretty town with lovely climates throughout the year. Locals call it the valley of Happiness. This is an exclusive town in Tibet where plenty of green vegetables grow! Our Kailash Mansarovar tour via Kerung is a convenient route that takes only about two weeks to complete. Leaf Holidays Kailash Mansarovar tour package offers you a brief exploration of the cultural and religious landmarks of Tibet. An optional service by helicopter package for 2018 also operates for those with physical disadvantages or aged pilgrims. But this will be quite expensive.
