Kailash Tour was the sacred nine-story Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Sherab alighted from heaven. Four of the great rivers of the Indian subcontinent originate from here: the Karnali, which feeds into the Ganges (south), the Indus (north), the Sutlez (west) & the Brahmaputra (the Yarlung Tsangpo, east).
Narba treks offer special fixed trips to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar to facilitate pilgrims & foreign tourists. We are probably one of the few outfits that provide Nepali Sherpa staff support for all of our treks in Tibet so as to ensure similar high-quality trek services that exist in Nepal. All trips are planned to arrive at the Kailash tour on a full-moon day to obtain a total & unhindered view of the holy mountain.
