It is possible to make a tour to Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar combining with the major attractions of Central Tibet (Tsedang, Samye, Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, Yangpachen and Sakya). Generally our tour covers Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse and Sakya and eventually it merges with the main route from Kathmandu to Kailash in Saga (a small Tibetan town). Our tour to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar from Lhasa requires at least 19 days. However, depending on the time frame and places you choose to cover in the tour, the tour can be made longer or shorter.
Lhasa to Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar tour commences from Kathmandu with an hour Trans-Himalayan flight to Gonggar Airport in Tibet. Our Tibetan guide meets you at the airport and escorts you to the main city (Lhasa), which is 98 km away from the airport. In Lhasa, we will enjoy a two-day guided sightseeing tour that covers almost all the major attractions situated inside Lhasa. After that we start our journey to Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar via Gynatse, Shigatse and Sakya Monastery. As usual, “Lhasa to Mt. Kailash Tour” consists of a 3-day circumambulation around holy Mt. Kailash. The tour ends at Zhang-Mu.
