  • Day 8
    LAKE MANSAROVAR to DARCHEN

    Early morning visits the Mansarovar Lake for holy bath, performing puja, hawan, and other rituals as per your own customs. The lake looks stunning in the morning and the beautiful sight of Mount Kailash makes it even more delightful. The water of the lake will be definitely very cold but the devotees are always full of spirituality and devotion and do not wish to skip this holy bath. It is to be noted carefully that the recent change in the law of the Tibetan Govt has restricted dip bath in the lake and has categorized it as a punishable offense. So kindly refrain from going inside the lake and for the bath ask our Sherpa’s only to bring water in a bucket for you. After dip bath and prayer, the group is ready to drive to Darchen and will travel through Rakshasa Taal and Chiu Gompa by performing 70% parikrama of the holy lake. The remaining part of parikrama will be performed while coming back from Darchen after the kora of Mt. Kailash.

    On reaching Darchen check into the hotel and spend the rest of the time relaxing and preparing for the next day kora of Mount Kailash. Dinner and night stay at the hotel.

  • Day 9
    1st DAY KORA/PARIKRAMA OF MT. KAILASH, 12 KMS TREK to DIRAPUK

    Today, we wake up early and after taking light breakfast, we head to Tarboche. Do not forget to fill your water bottle before leaving for the trek. All pilgrims have the opportunity to visit Yama Dwar before the trek (kora) starts. Tarboche is the point (towards the South face of Mount Kailash) where one can hire a horse/pony to ride on the trek during the kora. The price and availability of horse/pony and porter are controlled by the local Union and Kailash yatra trip operators and our team will have no control over it. From Tarboche we proceed to Yama Dwar which is considered to be the start point of Kailash kora. From Yama Dwar we start a 12 km trek to Dirapuk slowly and gradually. The trek to Dirapuk Gompa today is fairly easy but as you walk at a high altitude lack of oxygen in the air makes the trek a little difficult, as you feel short of breath on the trek. We will make a stop in the middle of the trek where we find some small shops and tea stalls and then again continue to Dirapuk. On reaching Dirapuk the pilgrims will see the majestic Mount Kailash standing high on the right side of their trek. Take some beautiful photos and then continue to your guesthouse near Dirapuk Monastery. The night will be too cold below zero degrees temperature so we will have a quick and light dinner (Khichdi, soup, etc) and rest in the bed.

    Important remark: Group members who want to make changes in their schedule and do not want to go for trek may visit Yama Dwar and come back. They may ask the guide to arrange for their hotel stay in Darchen and can pay for their hotel and other additional expenses directly.

    Optional trip from Darchen: It is possible to arrange a visit to Ashtapad from Darchen on request of the pilgrim but please be informed that one should trek from Darchen to Ashtapad and back to Darchen, as there is no transport service permitted by Chinese authorities in this area. The trip to Ashtapad is subject to permission of local authorities and on a direct payment basis to Tibetan Guides.

    Optional visit from Dirapuk : Charan Sparsh (5475 m is 3 kms trek from Dirapuk Gompa. One can ask the tour guide to organize for this short trek to touch the feet of holy Mt. Kailash. This visit is not a part of the tour package and depends on the guide’s decision and availability of time. The trek towards the feet of Mt. Kailash is tough and is not compulsory for the guide to arrange. All expenses for organizing this additional visit are to be payable by the pilgrims directly to the guide.

    Meals included: Veg. Breakfast, Packed snacks, Light Dinner
    Max Elevation: 5210 m
    Distance covered: 06 km drive +12 km trekking
    Accommodation Style: Guesthouse on sharing basis

  • Day 10
    2nd DAY PARIKRAMA, 22 KMS TREK to ZUTHULPUKH via GAURI KUND

    Wake up very early morning before dawn and witness the first sunlight on Mt. Kailash offering an amazing view of the ‘Golden Kailash’. Take a quick light breakfast, fill hot water in your flask and carry your snacks for the lunch and get ready to begin the trek towards Zuthulphuk. This day is considered the toughest day of this entire trip as the trek goes steep up continuously up to Dolma-La pass (5630 m) and then steep down to Gauri Kunda. Near Dolma La pass you will witness colorful flags around and belongings of people spread nearby. This place is called Shiva Tsal (Shiva Sthal). It is said that people performing parikrama must leave something behind here may be used cloth or ornament or a drop of blood or a lock of hair which symbolizes the act of leaving this life behind and wishing for the end of a miserable life. The total trek today we have to cover is about 22 km to reach Zuthulpuk Gompa for a night's stay.

    Important remark: If at Dirapuk you do not feel for continuing trek further to Zuthulpuk and wish to change your schedule and go back to Darchen for a night stay, you must inform the guide of the additional arrangement for you. All additional expense for the change including accommodation and meals at Darchen is to be taken care by the traveler(s) changing their schedule.
