DETAILED ITINERARY

DAY 1: ARRIVAL IN KATHMANDU

Dreaming about finding your true self in all those giant mountains, you will be landing in our compact yet hospitable airport. We will be receiving you at the airport and escorting you to our office for the detail discussion of the tour. Shortly after that you can breathe and relax at the hotel and we will gather together for a hearty dinner soon.

DAY 2: KATHMANDU SIGHTSEEING & FLY TO NEPALGUNJ (150)

A cultural awakening around the city of 7 UNESCO world heritage sites (2 Buddhist Pagodas including Monkey Temple, 2 famous Hindu Temples, and 3 main Royal palaces). First, we’ll take you to Bhaktapur Durbar Square ‘the city of devotees’, where we’ll have completely different environment from the Thamel city in Kathmandu. We’ll also visit some other sites as per your preference. In the evening, we will take a flight to Nepalgunj (150m) and spend the night.

DAY 3: FLY NEPALGUNJ TO TAKLAKOT

Early morning, after breakfast, we will take a brief flight to Simikot. After resting for a while, we will take the helicopter ride of about 2 minutes long to Hilsa having the weight limit of 12kg. Since it is a group visa, everyone have to enter Tibet side in one group and therefore we make sure that all people gather together before we depart to Taklakot (3900m). Weather conditions can change the day plan, so better be prepared. Overnight at Taklakot

DAY 4: REST AT TAKLAKOT (3900M)

Manasarovar Lake is situated at a higher altitude so acclimatization is must, before we visit the lake. We spend the day exploring Taklakot and its surroundings.

DAY 5: DRIVE TO MANASAROVAR LAKE (4550M)

Today, we will finally depart for Manasarovar Lake, which is 95km from Taklakot. On the way, we will pass through the first checkpoint and driving from Taklakot for about 70km, we will reach Rakchas Tal. On the right of Rakshas Tal, you will see Gurla Mandhata Parvat & the first view of Mount Kailash and Manasarovar Lake. We further drive for more or less 25km to reach Manasarovar Lake.

DAY 6: 1ST DAY OF PARIKRAMA

On the first day of Parikarma, we drive to Darchen (4650m) and Yama Dwar first and continue the day with a Trek to Dirapuk (4880m). Whilst in Dirapuk, we will visit the North face of Mt. Kailash and touch the feet of Mt. Kailash (Charan Sparsha). Overnight in Dirapuk

DAY 7: 2ND DAY OF PARIKRAMA

On the second day of Parikarma, we will head towards Zuthulpuk via Dolma La Pass (5700m). Dolma La Pass is 8km far from Zuthulpuk and therefore, we will trek all the way until we reach our destination. The trail to Dolma La is quite steep making it difficult to walk. After crossing the pass we can see Gaurikund on the right. After walking for about 3 hrs we will reach Phedi. We will take a small rest and then continue our trek to Zuthulpuk.

DAY 8: 3RD DAY OF PARIKRAMA

Third day of Parikarma starts with a trek to the bus point that lasts approximately 3 hrs. Upon reaching the Bus point, we will drive to Darchen (about 3 km) and then to Hilsa. Depending upon the weather, we will hop on the Helicopter to Simikot. Overnight at Simikot

DAY 9: FLY TO NEPALGUNJ & KATHMANDU

Today we will fly to Nepalgunj followed by another flight to Kathmandu, after resting for a while. After reaching Kathmandu, we will do sightseeing of your choice.
