Tour Required

Trek Overview

From a trekking stand point this trek is easy to do independently, the route is obvious and there are monastery rest houses to stay at along the way so that a tent is unnecessary.  However now that Tibet has become almost impossible to travel to independently much less trek.  So this trek information will really only be for those contemplating taking a tour to Mt. Kailash, unless regulations change drastically, which in the current climate of Chinese bureaucracy is very unlikely.  If you do manage to get there the scenery of western Tibet is stunning and the trek around Mt. Kailash is fascinating from a cultural, religious and scenic perspectives.
