Trip Overview of Simikot-Kailash-(EBC)

Mount Kailash trekking from Simikot provides an opportunity to learn about both Nepalese and Tibetan culture. There is no direct flight from Kathmandu to Simikot. You must fly 1 and half-hours to Nepalgunj on the Southern border of Nepal, spend a night and take an early morning flight to Simikot. If you want to walk to Simikot, takes about 15 days from Surkhet. Simikot (elevation 2910 metres) is on the ridge high above the Humla Karnali encircled by high snow covered ridges. Simikot (opened to trekkers in 1993) is the seat of Nepal’s most remote district, Humla, several days’ walk from the nearest major village. There is a continuous stream of “Humli” people from surrounding villages trading, buying supplies and dealing with various bureaucracies. After 5/6 days trekking (Simikot-Tuling-Kermi-Yangar-Torea-Sipsip-Taklakot), a stone pillar that marks the Nepal/Tibet border is just across a rickety wooden bridge, perhaps one of the most informal border crossings in the world. Hereafter you can make your trip to Mt. Kailash. Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and Bonpos have considered mount Kailash sacred for thousands of years. For Hindus and Buddhists it is the center of the Universe. It is atop this mountain that Lord Siva dwells in meditation. A pilgrimage to the mountain and around it is a sacred goal for the faithful.
