Simikot Mount Kailash & Guge Tour

Simikot Mount Kailash & Guge Tour is the sacred sites of western Tibet and a remote corner of Nepal.

In far northwestern Nepal, it is an exquisite 6-day trek through villages and barley fields to Simikot crossing the border.

An amazing overland journey and trek, an experience that will be a life-time memory. High passes topped with colorful prayer flags, snow-capped mountains, glaciers, nomad herders and stunningly clear rivers make the drive west memorable.

Sacred to Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and Bonpo as the earthly manifestation of Mount Meru, a pilgrimage circuit of the mountain is one of the most effective means of acquiring merit in this life. Add a circumambulation of the sacred Lake Manasarovar nearby for an unbelievable pilgrim experience.

From the 9th to the 17th centuries, the Kingdom of Gu-ge ruled western Tibet. Its strong associations with India and Ladakh made Gu-ge the leader of the Buddhist revival on the Tibetan Plateau. Over 100 monasteries were there, particularly famous for their amazing art.

The area is scenically magnificent, apart from the history. The Sutjej River cuts through the valley with its amazing eroded sides.
