Trip Overview

Before opening Simikot-Hilsa route, travelers used to travel to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar either via Lhasa or via Zhang-Mu. From 1993, travelers started to make tour to Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar via Simikot-Hilsa route frequently.This route is the shortest and the most practical for trekkers in terms of both elevation and distance. The tour to Mt. Kailash commences from Simikot which is situated at an elevation of 2910 meters and climbs upto Na-Lagna pass (4330 meters) before reaching the arid Tibetan Plateau. From Simikot, it takes a 6 day’s journey to reach the Tibetan border town which is plenty of time to be acclimatized in high altitude. Simikot – Kailash trekking, tour to Kailash, Kailash tour and trekking.There is no direct air service from Kathmandu to Simikot, so travelers generally have to fly Simikot via Nepalgunj, the regional hub of Western Nepal. From Kathmandu, we either have to take a 12 hours overland journey in bus or have to take an hour’s flight to Nepalgunj both options are available on regular basis. Nepalgunj – Simikot flight operates early in the morning, so we must stay a night in Nepalgunj to catch early morning flight the next day. Monsoon rains often make the Nepalgunj-Simikot flights delay and make it difficult to get tickets, so it is always better to book this trip as earlier as possible. As we trek for 6 days through one of the most remote regions of Nepal, we have to bring all logistics that requires during our trekking portion in Nepal side. The rest of the logistic which are required during our journey to Mt. Kailash will be supplied via the alternative route (Zhang-Mu). A supporting truck will come all the way from Lhasa to Nepal border (Kodari, near Zhang-Mu) to fetch the equipment (kitchen and camping) ,foods and bring them to Hilsa border before the group reach there. Due to the small room in aircraft, the logistics which will be required for the entire journey cannot be supplied via Simikot route only. Also this requires huge manpower to carry all the logistics to the Hilsa border and by then most of the fragile items will be destroyed. So, we must supply the foods and other logistics to Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar from the alternative route.
