Humla Kailash Trekking Overviews 

Humla Kailash Trekking is the best trekking destination. Trekking via Humla to Mt. Kailash or Mansarovar was officially opened for trekkers in 1993. Since then this route has been popular for pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash. Humla Kailash trekking, is actually, valued for religious and cultural pilgrimage via one of the remotest regions of Nepal to Tibet. Humla is a remote district however it is celebrated for its cultural and natural thrills. Ethnic groups like Bhotias inhabiting the border between Nepal and Tibet will offer us a complete harmony of cross-cultural endurance and understanding. Much of their trade and culture are connected to Tibet than to Nepal. The plateaus and arid landscapes in this remote region will certainly please one tremendously.

Humla region is a less exposed and less crowded region trekking in Nepal. We hardly see the concrete road and other facilities in this region. The people are hospitable and innocent. They have an intimate attachment to nature. The typical and classical lifestyle of the ethnic groups and their culture and the virgin form of nature are massively enjoyed in this trekking.

Trekking to Mt Kailash and Mansarovar has always been a significant pilgrimage. Thousands of pilgrim tourists flock to this area to see holy Mt. Kailash and Mansoravar. This region is considered to be an abode of God Shiva. Both Hindus and Buddhists especially, Tibetan Buddhists find it very special. They have a dream of visiting Mt. Kailas and Man Sarovar.

If we happen to visit Mt. Kailash and Mansarovar during June on a full moon day, we will have a chance to experience the Saga Deva Festival. Saga Deva is Tibetan carnival music and chants. They flock to this area carrying prayer flags and foretell their future for the next year.
We, Team Himalaya have been successfully operating various trekking trips to Humla Mt. Kailash, and the Manasarovar region of Nepal since its establishment. We offer an equipped team to ensure your safety and luxury during the trip. We are flexible to offer any trip to the trekkers.
