Kailash Manasarovar Via Kerung

Kailash Tour, TibetCultural Treks and Expedition introduces the Overland Kailash Tour via Kerung, a 14 days Yatra (tour) from Kathmandu via Kerung, Saga, Mansarovar, Darchen and Kailash. The Kerung border is located 175 km from Kathmandu and lies in the Rasuwagadi district of Nepal. Due to narrow and basic road construction, it is feasible to estimate that it takes around 8-9 hours from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi via Timure. Kerung is elevated around 3,000 meters height and staying one day for acclimatization assists to alter your body in high altitude. From Kerung, we take scenic drive to the villages of Saga, Mansarovar and Darchen with picturesque Mount Kailash surroundings and beautiful Tibetan settlements.

Lhasa, Mt. Kailash & Lake ManasarovarResponding to a joint press conference, with several senior officers from the Chinese government and the Consular General of Nepal in Tibet, an announcement was made that the Rasuwagadi - Kerung border crossing, the only functioning border linking Nepal to China’s autonomous region Tibet, is now open to foreign travelers as well who wish to travel to Kailash via the “new overland route”. Issued by the Consulate General of Nepal, this major border, which is now open, moderates the travelling distance for pilgrims from all around the world. Since it ceases the compulsion to enter Tibet via flights, this tour has made Mt. Kailash easily accessible from the outskirts of Nepal. After the closure of the Kodari border due to heavy damages received since the 2015 earthquake, this alternative route benefits the travellers who yearn to embark on a journey sans the flight hassle. Our well-prepared itinerary has been crafted according to our client’s requirements from acclimatization to accommodation to transportation, food and other needful information. Our experienced cook provides the best of Vegetarian Indian meals and the staff of Cultural Treks & Expedition Pvt. Ltd will ensure to make you trip a successful and memorable one.
