It is dubbed the Ultimate Pilgrimage Journey and it ranks high on the bucket lists of many trekking enthusiasts. Trekking the pilgrimage route around Mount Kailash is a once in a lifetime experience. Mount Kailash, Kangrinboqe or Gang Rinpoche in Tibetan, is the 6,638m (21,778 ft) high peak in the Kailash Range, part of the Trans Himalaya in Tibet, China.
Mount Kailash is sacred in four different religions: Bon, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. For thousands of years people have made a pilgrimage to Kailash. Pilgrims believe that circumambulating Mount Kailash by foot is a ritual that will bring good fortune. Hindus and Buddhists go clockwise and Jains and Bönpos circumambulate the mountain anticlockwise.
The Mount Kailash Trek is also known as the Kora. The average altitude of this trekking is nearly 5,000 meters. This makes it a challenge which requires great perseverance. The 52km trekking route around the King of the Mountains will push you out of your comfort zone. Join us and many others on the best trek in Tibet.
