Kailash Mansarovar overland tour is tour on the most revered holy sites on the planet. Mt. kailash is lies in the far western corner of Tibetan Plateau. This place is situated in very remote part of Tibet. We can reach in this place after driving for four days continuously which will be so much adventure and scenic drive. We will cross typical Tibetan villages and several passes. Kailash Mansarovar Yatra also leads us to Lake Mansarovar with extremely beautiful turquoise lake at Mt. Kailash. These two lakes are the main theme of this tour. We need to walk at the high altitude and in remote area but also we can have an experience of religious and cultural things. Both Hindus and Buddhists Pilgrims can be found in this area. Distinct history, tradition and culture are the main attraction of this trek

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is little bit long tour. Nyalam is the starting point of this trekking. In maximum parts we will be in holy sites. Buddhist, Bon followers and Hindu follower have a belief that all our sins is erased when we walk around Mt. Kailash.Uncountable number of temples and monasteries can be seen in this place. It will be the most amazing trip of your life. After rounding the entire place lastly we will end our trek at Nyalam the starting point of our trek. Then we will return back to our destination. In the time of spring season we will have nice road to trek. So spring season is regarded as the best season to do trekking in this path. But A One Nepal Trek is always with you to Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. Our company will make the trekking days according to the choice of customers.
