On the way, we will drive through the highest motorable pass of this journey (Mayum-La; 5200 m.).

As usual, we will be ready to move on from Darchen to Tarboche (Yama Dwar), 7 km distance west. The drive takes about 30 minutes to reach Yama Dwar. Tarboche (Yama Dwar) is an ideal vantage point that provides splendid views of south and west faces of mount Kailash. This is probably the best place to have a closed view. The total circumference of mount Kailash from Darchen to Darchen is 52 km and takes 3 days. We also arrange horse/s, yak/s and porter/s in Tarboche and accompany us for trekking part. Those, who are participating for circumambulation, will move ahead to Diraphuk from this point and rest will return to Darchen and wait until the people return from parikrama. The distance of first day’s trek (from Yama Dwara to Diraphuk) is about 10 km. only and it takes 5 to 7 hours approx. to cover the distance. The entire trail up to Deraphuk is reasonably flat with gentle ascend, however due to its extreme elevation, we may feel very exhausted, and need to have break on the way very frequently. The last legs of the journey is tough with rapid ascend. But, it is only for half an hour. Deraphuk stands at an elevation of 4920 m. The north face of mount Kailash is just a few thousands meters away from here. This is the only place to have a close view of north face. * Overnight Guesthouse (dormitory room) * Yama Dwar – Dhirapuk (12 km): 5 - 6 hour trek. * Altitude: 4920 m./16,138 fts * Day time temperature: 12 to 18 degree Celsius; Night time temperate: -5 to -7 degree (windy)
Today is the toughest & longest journey of this trip. We have to trek almost 22 km through rugged highland to reach Zuthulphuk. Literally, we have to pack up our gear and set off from hotel at 5 a.m. Chinese time. Initially, it is an uphill trek from Diraphuk but after walking for an hour or so, the trail turns into mild ascend. Half of the trail passes through an elevation of 4900 m./16,000 ft. or above, so there is no wonder if we get suffered from breathlessness or headache. Though, we should try to keep our pace slow & steady. After making an up hill trek for about 4 hours or so, we will reach the highest point crossing over during this divine trip called ‘Dolma La pass (5600m)’ where we will find Tibetan prayers flags fluttering. After making a gentle descend from the pass, we will find our self near a tine glacial lake. This is ‘Gauri Kunda’. From Gauri Kunda, the trail leads us rapidly down through the area full of boulders and loose pebbles. If you have taken horse, we can’t even use it in this bit.
