Lhasa Mt. Kailash Tour
In the far western part of the Tibetan plateau, there exists two miracles, Mount Kailash and Mansarovar. Mount Kailash Tour offers you astounding views of Kailash that is accessible after four days of scenic drive from Kathmandu. This drive takes you through the beautiful Tibetan plateau. In other ways, it can also be reached after a week of trek, starting from Simikot in Western Nepal.
If we choose to drive, we easily reach the exquisite region with the beautiful lake Mansarovar and stunning views of Mount Kailash along. The lake seems more attractive with swans floating on its surface. Both of the lake and the mountain have religious significance all dedicated to the legendary deity Lord Shiva. Followers of Hinduism and Buddhism have their religious tolerance to these natural structures.
We wish you a happy Mount Kailash Tour if you wish to visit Tibet and explore around this amusing sites.
