Kailash Yatra by overland journey is considered to be the classic route of this spiritual trip. Prior to massive devastation earthquake in Nepal held in 2015, this classic popular trip was conducted via Kodari / Zhangmu border. Now being the earthquake damaged badly in this border side, this border was shield by no entry /exit for the people or travelers. Since then, Kailash yatris (pilgrims) choose alternative option to pay homage to their mighty Mt. Kailash via Lhasa or Hilsa border. These two routes become so popular after 2015 for the tourists traveling to Lhasa Tibet & Kailash Manasarovar. After three years, Chinese Government has finally give the good news to all travelers, by opening Kyirong (Kerung) border at north-west of Nepal from November 2017 for all tourists who wish to visit Tibet by overland trip.

Kyirong being the alternative border for Kodari Tatopani, we tour operator and travelers feel someway better to organize tours & trekking in Tibet touristic destination among Kailash region. Although Kyirong border is not like comfortable as Kodari, the travelers has at least get choice of little economy trip than of expensive flight option. Tibet Kyirong border is connected with Nepal Rasuwagadhi border through Friendship Bridge. The journey from Kathmandu to Rasuwagadhi border is longer than of Kodari border with little difficult narrow road as well. It takes about 7 to 8 hours to reach Syabrubesi from Kathmandu due to road condition and so we have to stay overnight here. You will notice the strict & numerous checking points while you travel from Kathmandu to border by Police & military of Nepal as you have to pass your journey through Langtang National Park region. Then next morning, we can get entry to Tibet region and stay in Kyirong for two nights in order to acclimatize our health with Tibetan climate. Our program will then proceeds as per itinerary with stunning scenery of mountains, lakes, monasteries, Tibetan local villages, their people & cultures etc. In this Yatra (tour), you will get basic facility for accommodation with dormitory room in all places; however you will get personal care and services by our staff team with family feeling caring and serving hot & delicious foods. The drive journey will be 5 to 7 hours daily during this trip. We will provide comfortable bus for your Yatra.


And we do request to our all yatris for their kind co-operation if they find any inconvenient due to unexpected situation during the trip because this trip is anyway not easy trip than other pilgrimage tour due to harsh climate, remote region, basic facility & strict policy of Chinese Government.  We tour organizer do our best for your comfort and safety at best possible way making your trip memorable. We hope you will find us as your best travel partner for organizing this lifetime holiest adventure and will remember us always.
