Tibet is a sacred place and abundant of holy peaks. Among them, Mount Kailash (6638 meters) is revered as the holiest destination of pilgrimage to Tibetans. Attracted by breathtaking mountain scenery and palpable sense of holiness in this particular region, numerous tourists and believers flock to Darchen (4675 meters) to have a try of the ultimate 3-day kora around Mt. Kailash. Our Mount Kailash Trekking Tours/Pilgrimage Tours will take you to explore the navel of universe believed by Tibetans and Hindus. With thin air and extreme altitude (4720 meters on average), it’s truly a test of mind and body as you tread on mountain trails. However, the impressive and divine experience is incomparable elsewhere.
