About Kailash Tour with Lhasa - Drive In/Fly Out
14 DAYS KAILASH TOUR - DRIVE IN/FLY OUT
The first part of the proposed 14 days Kailash tour with Lhasa starts first, from Kathmandu taking you through the Kathmandu-Pokhara Highway and gets diverted to Trishuli (new route to Trishuli). From Trishuli township, an uphill drive starts taking you all the way to the border using the same route used by the trekkers to the Langtang valley area in Nepal. It is so scen
ic that you will remain busy in your photography all around
After the border formalities on both the Nepal and Tibet sides, you are required to change the vehicle to the Tibetan ones. After the formal introduction, our Nepali guide hands you over to our Tibetan guide and driver. They will welcome you to their vehicle and will be driven to the hotel/guest house in Kerung township where you will have overnight with full rest for acclimatisation.
Next day, your drive will be through the Tibetan plateau where you will encounter a completely different landscape with rugged-sandy-graveled topography. Green vegetation is so rare with hardy plants where you will see yaks and sheep grazing. Your route involves an overnight in Dzongba and then in Manasarovar.
During the Kailash tour with Lhasa, your first encounter with Manasarovar is overwhelmingly magnificent with the Mt Kailash on its back drop. The following morning will keep religious people busy in organizing a dip or bath in the lake and ‘puja’ on its bank. Strolling around with a visit to Chiu Gompa is quite interesting and rewarding. In the afternoon, you will be driven to Darchen, a base camp for the circumambulation (parikrama or kora) around Mt Kailash.
After your careful preparation, you will be driven to Tarboche from where your walk starts. This is the core part of Kailash tour with Lhasa. The scenery side by side with the might presence of Mt Kailash on your right is always accompanying you till the end of the kora. High pass of Droma La (5,650 m) is a challenge to all on the second day of the kora. Comparatively, the second day is the longest and toughest one in all sense, while the third day is easier and shorter as you are picked up after about a 3-hour walk by our vehicles and driven back to Manasarovar for your nice rest and recapitulation of the trip.
way back is the same until Saga from where we take straight route to Lhatse in continuation of our drive to Lhasa. We will have an overnight in Xigatse. With sightseeing of various interesting sites and monasteries in Xigatse and Gyantse, we continue our drive to Lhasa passing by another beautiful lake called Yamadroke Lake (lake with turquoise colour). Today, we reach Lhasa by crossing Brahmaputra River once again. Lhasa – a Tibetan capital and cultural centre, not only offers a comfortable stay, but also a variety of food options in different restaurants compelling you to forget all the hassles you underwent so far in your trip. Sightseeing trip to the major sites like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Drepung Monastery and Sera Monastery in Lhasa is so impressive that it is beyond our words.
Remember any tour to Tibet without a visit to Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet is never complete. So, please join this 14 days Kailash tour with Lhasa. You will have a great time with us. No words more than this from our side.
