The Kailash Trek via Simikot is quite a spiritual trip that takes you to Tibet’s legendary Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar via Simikot. Through the concealed Humla valley in Nepal’s western most Tibetan frontiers, off you go. In fact, the people out there in Humla are very humble. Starting our tour from Simikot offers some great trekking experience. We encourage this trip to people who want to explore the Buddhist traditions and culture. Not to mention, the trip gives immense peace and happiness with a sense of spirituality that comes with it.
