In 1993 governments of China and Nepal decided to open the border between two countries. Since then trekkers are able to go to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar through Simikot of Humla, Humla is Nepal’s most underdeveloped and remote district located at the western part of the country. This Simikot Kailash route is one of the exciting and most virgin route for trekkers in terms of tourist inflow. This tour of Mt. Kailash and lake Mansarovar starts from Simikot, located at an altitude of 2910 meters, and crosses Nara La pass (4530 meters) before reaching the Tibetan Plateau.

It takes about 6 days to reach to Tibetan border from Simikot and this time will be perfect for acclimatization as we will be ascending steadily and gaining altitude under safety limit. As there is no direct flight available to Simikot from Kathmandu, will have to first go to Nepalgunj. The flight to Simikot takes off only in early morning so, we will have to stay at Nepalgunj for a day. Simikot Kailash and Mansarovar tour finishes at Zhangmu and it takes about 20 days to finish this tour.
