Simikot – Kailash Mansarovar – 22 days

Trek the sacred sites of western Tibet and a remote corner of Nepal. An incredible overland journey and trek, an experience you will not soon forget. High passes topped with colorful prayer flags, snow-capped mountains, glaciers, nomad herders and stunningly clear rivers make the drive west memorable. Sacred to Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and Bonpo as the earthly manifestation of Mount Meru, a pilgrimage circuit of the mountain is one of the most effective means of acquiring merit in this life.
