Kathmandu Simikot Kailash Kerung Trek Brief Insight

The majestic Mount Kailash (6638m) has great religious significance to the Hindu and Buddhist adherents. As such, the Kathmandu Simikot Kailash Kerung Trek takes you deep into the desolate lands of Tibet, where you’ll get to witness the majestic seat of Lord Shiva along with the silent lakes of Mansarovar and Rakshas. Dwell further into the Tibetan plateau and find yourself admiring the lavish vistas along with the rich history of the Dira Phug Monastery. If you desire serenity and religious touch to your trip, then this is the place to be.
