Mt. Kailash (6714m), Asia's most sacred mountain, is
located in a high and isolated enclave of West
Tibet . It is one of
three pilgrimages sites in the area, known collectively as Kangri
Tsosum. All are said to be at the heart of the ancient Shangshung
kingdom, the supposed land of origin of the pre-Buddist Bonpos. Mt
Kailash is their sould-mountain, which they also call Yungdrung Gu Tse,
Swastika Mountain .
It is a 53-km pilgrim path around Mt. Kailash . It begins and ends at Darchen, a small settlement at the mountain south base and in the process visits four monasteries crosses the high Drolma La Pass (5636m). Three days is perhaps the minimum time required to walk leisurely around the mountain: spend two nights in or near Drira Phuk and Zutrul Phuk Monasteries. If conditions permit, try to stay four or five days, which would allow time for short trips to the inner regions of the area.

Price For The Trip: The total cost for the trek or tour you decide you want to do will depend on several different factors. The type of accommodation you prefer in Kathmandu will make a difference to the overall cost (budget to 5 star accommodations). The mode of transport you prefer will also affect the cost of your package, for example prices vary greatly between flying versus private car/van, tourist or local buses. The camping trek and teahouse trek made a difference in the cost. The number of guides and porters required will also affect the total cost of your trek. For these reasons, the same trek/tour can vary in price quite substantially.
