Mt. Kailash lies in the south-western part of the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. At 6714m, Mt. Kailash is the highest peak in the Kailash Range of the Himalayas. It is separated from the Great Himalayas chain by a trough that is drained in the north-west by the Sutlej River and in the south-east by the Yarlung Zangbo River. Mt. Kailash, which has religious significance for both Hindus and Tibetan Buddhists, is an important pilgrimage site.
The great Lake Mansarovar is situated in the south-west corner of Tibet and in the north-west of Nepal. It is beyond high Himalayas which borders Nepal and China. Tibetan plateau in itself is unique in its geographic make-up with its fauna and flora and mythical set-up of ecosystem. The lake is 20 km from Mt. Kailash and is one of the most beautiful and sacred lakes in Asia. It can be circumambulated in 4/5 days and looks like a gem of cobalt blue color. But during storm, it can turn into a churning black sometimes

High Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness can be a serious problem if the clients do not take care of it on time. It can affect anyone regardless of age or fitness. It sometimes occurs while passing above 1800 meters high altitude. The symptom of altitude sickness is headache, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, irritation, nausea, sleeplessness, irregular breathing and swelling. The only way to cure the sickness is to descend down as quick as possible. A descent of 1000 meters normally brings about rapid recovery. We have planned our itineraries carefully to ensure proper acclimatization. So any one who sees the symptom of mountain sickness should immediately inform our tour leader, you should not ignore it.
