The Mt Kailash Tour via Simikot is a unique spiritual experience as the route leads you to the sacred Mt. Kailash and includes the 3-day Kora around the mountain. The Kora is the holy circulation of the sacred mountain. However, many Tibetans do the Kora in one day, and you will also meet prostrators who take around three weeks to complete the circuit. Certainly, Mt. Kailash is Tibet’s and one of the world’s most sacred mountains, and a destination for many pilgrims.
Further, trekking from Simikot to Tibet provides an opportunity to experience both Nepalese and Tibetan culture. First, Sightseeing in Kathmandu and trekking through Nepal’s himalayas will give you insights into Nepali culture, history and traditions. Further, we arrive in Simikot, opened to trekkers only in 1993. In fact, it is the seat of Nepal’s most remote district, Humla, several days’ walk from the nearest major village. There is a continuous stream of “Humli” people from surrounding villages trading, buying supplies and dealing with various bureaucracies. After a few days of trekking, we reach a stone pillar that marks the Nepal-Tibet border. However, just across a rickety wooden bridge, it is perhaps one of the most informal border crossings in the world. It’s a short climb to Sher, a Tibetan salt trading post at 3860m. After a short drive to Taklakot, the Chinese border guards will want to see your passport and Chinese visa. The upcoming days in Tibet and especially the Kora are going to be an unforgettable experience!
