Tours In Tibet
There are several travel modes to Tibet that combine treks & tours via different routes from Nepal. The most famous tour traditionally performed by Hindus & Buddhists alike is the pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash & Mansarovar Lake. Mt. Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva for the Hindus, and its Tibetan name Gang Rinpoche meaning “Supreme Mountain” puts Mt. Kailash an integral part of the Buddhist mythological axis. Paying their tribute to the holy Mt. Kailash & purify themselves by sprinkling the holy waters of Mansarovar have been one of the most sacred pursuits for millions of Hindu travelers from India.

The tours to Lhasa & other Tibetan places are also gaining popular among trekkers & tourists to Nepal.
