The 15 Days Saga Dawa Kailash Everest Tour is specially designed for individuals seeking to explore Tibet while experiencing the Saga Dawa Festival. During the event, a magnificent ceremony will be held in Serxiong where locals and monks erect a prayer pole. As a guest, this is an incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in Tibetan culture. Following this, you can proceed to Dirakpuk, which is roughly 12-13 km away.
This tour itinerary is tailored to provide a fulfilling experience with an array of exciting activities and cultural immersion. You will tour around Mount Kailash, spend a night at Everest Base Camp, and engage with authentic Tibetan daily life, spirituality, and culture. Additionally, our team ensures that you have adequate time to acclimatize to the altitude to enhance your overall experience.
We aim to provide a memorable and enjoyable trip, so join us and laugh to your heart’s content as we take you on an incredible journey through Tibet.
Our Tibetan guide and Tibetan driver greet you at the airport or train station with a white scarf. This is a very traditional way of greeting a friend in Tibet.
The distance from the airport to Lhasa city is around 60 kilometers, while the distance from the train station to Lhasa is approximately 15 kilometers. We take it easy on the first day to acclimate to the altitude.
ATTRACTIONS:- Potala Palace (Winter Resistant of the Dalai Lama), Norbu Lingkha Palace (Summer Resistant of the Dalai Lama), Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Streets & Sera Monastery;
The tour program for Days 2 and Day 3 is designed to help you acclimatize to the altitude in Lhasa City. You will be touring some of Tibet’s most beautiful landmarks in the meantime. These icons include the Potala Palace (Dalai Lama’s Winter Palace), Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street, Norbu Lingkha Palace, and Sera Monastery.
The Sera Monastery is one of the most intriguing places to see, and I strongly advise you to go there in the afternoon while the monks are debating Tibetan Buddhist philosophy.
We must obtain a Visiting Time Ticket to enter the Potala Palace. We must plan accordingly based on that. Due to this, when you get to Lhasa, kindly give our guide your passport.
ATTRACTIONS:- Gampala Pass(4,900m), Yamdrok Lake, Nyinchen Khangsar Range, Karola Glacier, Pelkhor Choede Monastery, Tashi Lunpo Monastery, Sakya Monastery, Mt. Kailash, Lake Manasarovar;
From Day 4 through Day 7, you’ll be driving throughout the countryside.
On Day 4, you will cross a very high pass (Gampa La) at an elevation of 4,900 meters above sea level.
You will enjoy a bird’s eye view of Lake Yamdrok from the top of the Gampa La Pass, which is also known as the turquoise lake due to its unique hue. Yamdrok Yutso Lake is considered a sacred lake, since the Great Guru Padmasambhava meditated there for three months and three days. During the auspicious periods of the Tibetan Lunar Calendar, Tibetans circumambulate Lake Yamdrok to pay homage.
If the sky is clear and blue, you may also view the Nyinchen Khangsar Range, which has a peak that rises to a height of 7,300 meters.
The Karola Pass, which has an elevation of 5,000 meters, will be the next high pass you pass on this day.
From the Karola pass, you may also see Tibet’s 7th biggest glacier (Karola Glacier).
On Day 5, you will go to the Panchen Lama’s palace or monastery. In Shigatse Prefecture, which monastery is the biggest? In the past, the Tashi Lunpo Monastery could house over a thousand monks.
You’ll also go to the Sakya Monastery in the afternoon. In the Sakya Monastery, you may see the four enormous pillars and a secret Buddhist library with a more than 800-year history.
You will be driving more on Days 6 and Day 7, especially in Western Tibet’s more outlying regions. There, you will see breathtaking views of the countryside, lakes, and endangered animals.
You will reach the base of Mount Kailash and view Lake Manasarovar in the late afternoon of Day 7.
The Speciality of this 15 Days Tibet Everest Kailash Tour is that you will go to Mt. Kailash first and later to the Mt. Everest Base Camp. In this way, you will get a little more time to acclimatize to the altitude.
ATTRACTIONS:- a stunning landscape of SerXiong valley, Drirakpuk Monastery, The Northface of Mt. Kailash, Drolma la Pass (5,600m) Zutrulpuk Monastery,
The trip’s trekking days are Day 8, Day 9, and Day 10. The trekking path follows Mt. Kailash Kora (circumambulation circuit). The whole Kora circumference around Mount Kailash is 52 kilometers.
We’ll be performing this Kora in three days. The first day of your trek will begin early in the morning from Darchen, and you will travel around 20 kilometers.
The first day of the journey will be a medium-intensity hike because the elevation will begin at 4700 meters and slowly ascent to 4,900 meters. You will spend the night in the guesthouse of Dirakpuk Monastery.
The second day of trekking will be more challenging because you will be crossing the Drolma La Pass, which has an elevation of 5200 meters. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you begin your trek as early as possible. When the sun shines out, the trek to the summit of Drolma La Pass becomes quite arduous.
After passing the Drolma La Pass, you will descend to an elevation of 4,850 meters (Zutrulpuk Monastery). The guesthouse of the Zutrulpuk Monastery is a great place to spend the night.
The third day of the expedition will be simple, with a distance of roughly 13 kilometers to Darchen. After arriving at your hotel in Darchen, you may take a shower and relax for the evening.
