Kailash Trek via Simikot

Trip Overview

After reaching an agreement in 1993 between the Nepal and China Government, the border between the two countries has been open for trekking. While it had been a route for Nepalese pilgrims for many years, foreign trekkers were never allowed to trek from Nepal into Tibet.

The journey through Humla, Nepal's highest, northernmost and most remote district, is culturally and scenically rewarding. A trip to Mt Kailash has always been regarded as a pilgrimage. It satisfies the romantic in us that the pilgrimage to Kailash is a difficult one.

We have combined such a nice adventure tour with the opening up of the border crossing between Nepal and Tibet via Taklakot (Purang), Mt. Kailash is now accessible for foreign trekkers with 6 days of trekking from the beautiful region of Simikot (3900 M). For this trek we follow the Humla Karnali route and trek through rice and wheat fields, through surging waters of the Humla Karnali, meet well-educated friendly monks who speak excellent English and yes, see some of the finest views nature has to offer.
