Many trekkers used to go to Kailash Trekking via Simikot, once the border between Nepal and China was opened in 1993. Humla is the most far-flung district in the located to the northwest side of the country. The route to Kailash trekking via Simikot is the shortest yet rewards you with amazing views and immense affluence in culture as well as history. Kailash trekking via Simikot is the best route regarding high altitude because Kailash tour is located in one of the highest lands with Lake Manasarovar.

Mt. Kailash, located at the height of 6714 m is also named as Tise, Kang Rinpoche, and Kailasa. It is considered sacred by the Buddhist, the Hindus, Jains, as well as the Bonpos. For the Hindus, the peak is the dwelling spot of Lord Shiva; for the Bonpos, Kailash was the holy nine-story Swastika peak burning from heaven; and for the Buddhists, the peak is a worldly ridge of the immense Mandala of Boddhisatvas and Dhyani-Buddhas, which things can see in this Kailash trekking.

Mt. Kailash Trekking Tour - You will not find the direct flight from Kathmandu to Simikot. You will have to take up a flight to Simikot via Nepalgunj, the local core of Western region of Nepal. This flight service operates only early in the morning, so you need to stay overnight in Nepalgunj to take up the morning flight. The walk starts from Simikot, located at an altitude of 2910 meters, and ascends up to Nara La pass (4530 meters) earlier than reaching the dry Tibetan Plateau. Taking approximately 6-days to Hilsa border, from Simikot with enough acclimatization you will reach the Tibetan border town named Shera for Kailash tour.  Visiting Kailash tour during Saga Dawa festival will be another awesome experience as it is one of the most vital festivals in Buddhist culture all around the world. It falls on the fourth lunar month, on a full moon day each year as per the Tibetan calendar which is celebrated honoring three important incidents in Buddha's existence- Birth, Nirvana as well as death.  The date is the year of 2018 Saga Dawa on 29 May.
