Key Information

Per Person Minimum 4 persons

Lhasa Tour and Circuit of Mount Kailash, the sacred mountain of Tibet

Mount Kailash is known as the holy mountain of Tibet and the spiritual universe’s centre to millions of Tibetans. The mountain is one of the world’s most elusive and exotic pilgrimage sites, and because of its remote location on the plateau, it’s only visited by a few thousand pilgrims per year.

At Responsible Adventures, we are experts in the area and are happy to provide a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage for individuals, groups, and families. We start the trip with a few days of touring Lhasa’s capital city and local towns of Gyantse and Shigatse, which is an experience in itself and helps to acclimatize you for the journey ahead.

We then drive out to Mount Kailash, hopefully arriving at Darchen or Lake Manasarovar on a full moon day, which are the best days to visit Mount Kailash because of the auspicious nature of the full moon in many cultures.

As with all our treks, you are accompanied by an expert trek leader during your excursion, as well as trekking chefs who ensure you are fed the healthiest and best food throughout, and your trip is not only safe but also fun.

Food and nutrition on the trek

We are pioneers in culinary trekking in the Himalayas. We provide a varied, exciting menu on treks throughout the Himalayas. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals can be catered for upon request, and other special diets can be accommodated with advance notice.

Trekking is not only fun, but it is beneficial for you. It helps in detoxifying the body while also nourishing the soul. Although to provide a better experience, we also tailor our meals to include superfoods as part of the ingredients to keep you fit and healthy while also assisting in acclimatization to high altitudes. The combination of hiking in the pristine mountain air and healthy food makes trekking with us a complete adventure. Read More on Food and nutrition on our treks.
