Overview Itinerary Includes/Excludes Trip Facts Map Enquiry Booking

Overview

This trip begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj and continues to Simikot. After Simikot, we trek to Hilsa and drive to the Lake Manasarovar across widely spread open spaces of the Tibetan Plateau. Then we make our most fascinating trip to Mt. Kailash and follow the track across vast arid plains for Nepalese border lies to the south. Finally, we take the trip back to Kathmandu

 

Mt. Kailash, (6,740 m) is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, in Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with awesome beauty, with 4 great faces. It is the spiritual centre for four great religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. To Tibetans it is known as Khang Rimpoche (Precious Jewel of Snow) and they see it as the navel of the world.

 

South of Mt. Kailash, across the great plain of Barga at the base of the majestic Mt. Gurla Mandhata lies the two lakes Mansarovar and Rakshas Tal. They are the highest lakes of fresh water in the world, with Mansarovar (330 sq km), at 4,558 meters, about fifteen meters higher than Rakshas Tal. Mansarovar is the larger of the two lakes and considered by Buddhists and Hindus to be the symbol of  veneration. Buddhists believe that Queen Maya, the Buddha's mother, was carried here by the gods and washed prior to given birth to the Buddha.

Culture/Heritage Tour
Nepal boasts a rich cultural diversity and it is well worth exploring. The Himalayan country of Nepal is a dream-world for many and reality for some. Once experienced they can never be forgotten, never dismissed from memory whether ones experience of them is visiting age-old Hindu temples, Buddhist monasteries and royal palaces with amazing sculptures, paintings, legends and living rituals. Nepal is not only regarded as "Shangri-la" for adventurers but a scenic revelation and an educational in itself to all visitors. Once seen they become a part of you, habit-forming and intrusive. We have put our best effort to incorporate all cultural delights as well as natural beauty that Nepal has to offer, which you can chose depending on your time availability.

 

Bunjee Jumping

Nepal has become one of the best sites in the world for bungee jumping. The country’s first bungee jumping site is situated 160m over the roaring Bhote Koshi river, located close to the Nepal Tibet border (Kodari) just three hour’s drive from Kathmandu.

 

Water Rafting

Nepal is also popular as one of the best destinations for white water rafting in the world. Cruising down rushing river of crashing waves and swirling rapids can make up excitement of a lifetime. Nepal’s thundering waters, coming from the glaciers of the mighty Himalaya provide unmatched thrills for rafting & immersing oneself in the beautiful landscape.

 

Paragliding

Paragliding is relatively new adventure sport in Nepal, and can be truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for adventure seekers. We experience unparalleled scenic grandeur sharing airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, and kites, while floating over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungles, with a fantastic view of majestic Himalayas. For the last three years this activity has been in operation in Pokhara, and it now is an internationally recognized destination for free flight enthusiasts
