Mount Kailash Biking Tour
A journey to Heaven is truly into Lake Manasarovar and Mt. Kailash, which is an axis for all religions. In May 1993 the governments of Nepal and China agreed to open the border between their countries. From that time on, travelers are able to make tours to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar through Humla, Nepal ‘s most remote district in the Northwest of the country. This route is the shortest and most practical for trekkers in terms of elevation and distance. Besides that, it treats its visitors with outstanding views and great richness in culture and history. The tour to Mt. Kailash starts from Simikot, situated at an elevation of 2910 meters, and climbs up to Nara-Lagna pass (4530 meters) before reaching the arid Tibetan Plateau. From Simikot it takes a 6-day’s journey to reach the Tibetan border town. This gives you plenty of time to acclimatize to higher altitudes. We will meet with our bikes and additional supplies & support vehicles in Shera, a small town at the Tibetan border. From here we will drive to Darchen. After 3 days kora we start our bike tour traversing to the east, along the Semo Tsangpo River towards Lhasa, until Saga. Leaving Sagam we head south, crossing the two major Himalayan passes (Lalung La and Yarle Shung La) before commencing a big long downhill into Nepal. On we descend, we will meet green forests, a wild Bhote Kosi and plenty of smiles from the friendly Nepalese people.
