Kailash Manasharovar- Journey of soul

Now, you have the opportunity to embark on a budget-friendly Mount Kailash tour through an overland route, thanks to the opening of the Kerung border for immigration between Nepal and Tibet. We invite you to join our fixed departure group tour to Kailash, offering an affordable and dependable option for your journey. This tour is designed for small groups and operates from April to October, the ideal season for visiting Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar. The itinerary spans 9 nights and 10 days, starting and concluding in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Tour Cost

The cost of a Mount Kailash tour is relatively higher compared to other tours and treks. However, we strive to make it more affordable by organizing small groups and pooling individuals together. It’s important to note that there are certain nationalities who may face challenges in obtaining Tibet/Kailash travel permits and visas, as the rules and regulations in Tibet can be subject to sudden changes without prior notice. Rest assured, Nepal Highland Treks takes care of all the necessary permits and visa procedures on your behalf. The process typically takes around a month, which means we need to apply for the Tibetan travel permit with your passport copy a month in advance. Additionally, it takes approximately three working days in Kathmandu, with your original passport, to obtain the final visa from the Chinese Embassy.
