    The Three in One Trek is the combination of Humla (Limi Valley), Kailash Saga Dawa & Guge Kingdom Western Tibet. Our road to the sacred Mount Kailash begins from renowned Humla, located in the far west of Nepal. The starting point of our journey is a wild trek from Simikot to remote Limi Valley following up the trails along the Tibetan border, encountering the locals - Bhotias (Tibetan Tribe). The road to the valley was filled with immense beauty of Nepal and remains of the Old Era Silk route, where we witnessed; old men (more of an Asian descent) cherishing their Hookah, a rather surprising Rajasthan women ornamented with all sorts of round traditional jewelry made from mirrors and silver coins and of course the Bhotias, covered with a turquoise attire and amber necklaces performing their pujas in Tibetan Buddhist Gompa, which reminds us that animism and shamanism still persists in this very part of the world.

    About the Spot

    Humla & Western Nepal
    The Nyimba Valley, in Humla, is the region where less number of tourists makes a trip due to less prominence of human sightings. It only comprises of four villages and the locals are too much spiritual, practicing their old religion. While we continue our trekking, we encountered many eternal villages and monasteries guiding through the Saipal range and revered Takh and Changla Himalayas. The land is still flourishing with high grasslands, frozen lakes, engaging rivers, mountain ranges and varieties of flora and fauna. One of the endangered species of Snow Leopard is still visible in secluded mountains.

    .It is said that Khasa is an Indo-Aryan tribe, believed to have dwelled from the lands of Persia during early migration. Humla particularly stands out from the other regions of Nepal due to a unique touch of Central Asian culture in the region. Bhotias of Humla is divided into five castes namely Limi, Nyimba, Tsangba, Yultshoden, and Trugchulung. In a surprising manner, all were observed to follow the most ancient rites of polyandry. 

    Kailash & Western Tibet
    One of the most famous places, Mount Kailash, located on the far western Ngari province of the Tibet, is known to the Tibetans by the name of ‘precious snow peak’. Conjoining with Buddhist and Hindu belief, Mount Kailash serves as the home to their supreme god. Without a doubt, Kailash is the most sacred place of Asia, revered by Hindus, Buddhist, Jains and other ancient religions. According to the belief, Mount Kailash caters as the pathway to atone for the sins of life. One cannot take a trip to Mount Kailash without dipping in the waters of Lake Manasarovar. It is more of religious practice followed by all people irrespective of its religion. Mount Kailash is peaked at 6714 meters accounting for the snow-clad mountains, filled with the Tibetan pilgrims alongside the valley to pay homage to their sacred place. Four great rivers of Asia: the Ganga (Karnali), the Industhe Sutlej and the Tsangpo (Brahmaputra) flow around the never-ending Tibetan plateau.
    Tirthapuri, one of the pilgrimage sites for Buddhists, is located along the banks of the river Sutlej. The scenery can only be compared to the land of eternity. Along the Indus River, dwells the ancient capital city of Kyunglung, once a city of the Kingdom of Zhangzhung.  It amounts for some of the most ancient Gompas and arts of the Tibetan Buddhist religion, which foreshadows the tales of the ancient world, which now lay waste as a nothing else but ruins. The locals refer to the regions of Humla and Ngari as the real Shangri-La. This certainly calls for a visit to make it worthwhile.

    Itinerary

    Arrival on: Kathmandu

    Departure from: Kathmandu

    Day 1

    Arrival Kathmandu

    You will have a scenic flight to Kathmandu from your country as you will be able to see the panoramic view of the Himalayan Range. Upon your arrival at Kathmandu, a representative from Adventure Mission Nepal (AMN) will greet and assist you to your hotel.

    Day 2

    Half day Sightseeing of Kathmandu and Trek Preparation

    After breakfast at the hotel, a tour guide will take you to the historical and cultural places of Kathmandu. The Kathmandu city presents a fabulous mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and western influence in the valley. There will be a half day guided tour to the famous and biggest Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath, the largest Buddhist stupa in Boudhanath, Kathmandu Durbar Square and Swayambhunath. Rest of the time, you can consult with your guide and can do the last moment shopping required for the upcoming trek.

    Day 3

    Fly to Nepalgunj (150m)

    Our flight path, across the lush lands and hillsides of Nepal, takes us to the airport in Nepalgunj. It is the largest city of western Terai. The city is located in southern Nepal, bordering with India at a distance of fewer than ten kilometers. It is settled as one of the hub for many flights and buses as a gateway to Nepal. Our drive to the hotel was followed by a unique mix of Nepalese culture reflecting the modern and ancient world.

    Day 4

    Fly to Simikot (2910m)

    The very next day, we take a flight to Simikot, commonly known as the headquarters of Humla. Along the flight, we gazed upon the Karnali River and majestic snow mountains which seem to be touching our plane. While we were descending to land, we witnessed the beautiful fields of cultivated lands of farming. This often reminds of how beautiful nature can be. If all goes well, we will land on time just before lunch, where we expect to meet our crew to embark on the journey of Simikot. None can describe in words, the spiritual village of Simikot, providing the cultural fusion of locals and Tibetans. Just an idea of the village compels us to explore more of this unspoiled part of the world.

    Day 5

    Trek to Dharapuri (2270m)

    Once we were done with breakfast, we set along for Simikot and northern regions, which meets up in Tibet. Looking down to the valley was a Simikot airport, which often reminds the dangers of flying in such mountainous regions. Traveling from the crop fields, we keep moving forward to the forest lands, encountering many small villages along the way. We come across Tuling, commonly known as Majgaon village. The village is resided by the Rajasthani tribesman, who migrated in early century and settled here. The cultural influence can be easily seen in their clothes and costumes. They even worship some of the ancient gods, not known to people of Rajasthan.

    After 45 minutes, we come across Yakba Khola, known for its walnut and apricot trees. Passing the land, we head on to the check post for Dharapuri, where we make camp for the night.

    Day 6

    Trek to Kermi (2780m)

    Leaving Dharapuri, we viewed on the river and along the shore were the last Thakuri village, Khanglagaon. It was the last time; we will witness the croplands in Humla. Marching our way to the deep territories of Humla, we pass through the Karnali River, and some of the local shepherds who were herding their flocks of sheep and goats till our eyes can fill. These shepherds make their living by trading the goods on the Tibetan border with their woolen bags. An old tradition-polyandry, which may be called upon as a Taboo, is quite prevalent in the region. Quite contrary to the normal belief, they believe it is a better way of family planning and have their lineage fall down for centuries. Then comes the majestic waterfalls at Chachera, technically a shepherd’s camp. The trail moves over the waterfall to the teahouses of Dhara Kermi, which is pretty close to the hot springs.

    Day 7

    Trek to Tsongsa Khola

    Once we had our fill with the breakfast, we move forward to Sale Khola, which passes through the lush valley and patching across the pine forest encountering more locals and herds. It is one of the best days for trekking, where the weather is clear as a blue sky, patterned with an endless spread of spring flowers and colorful forest. This brings us to the base camp for Nyalu La, which we plan to cross the next day. Suddenly the whole place seems to have converted, becoming more dry and rocky. Our approach to the campsite at Tsongas Khola was a complete hand on experience to see the variety of land transition in a rockier region.

    Day 8

    Trek to Talung (over Nyalu La)​

    The following day, we resume our journey by climbing the Nyalu La pass, at 5000 meters. Not sure, but we may have caught a glimpse of the sacred Mount Kailash and snow-covered Gurla Mandata from a distance. Once again we will have to descend the same distance as we ascended to reach our campsite at the Talung valley.

    Day 9

    Trek to Chekjur (Jang Village)

    Yet another memorable trekking experience, where we pass through the old trade routes of Tibet. Our endpoint was Chekjur or Jang village, which is famous for its hot springs. This can be a good place to soak our body and relax from the past few days of trekking. What more can one ask for other than having a hot spring in this cold climatic region? Our plan was to rest and replenish ourselves; hence we decided to settle for two days before resuming the journey.

    Near to the campsites, were the villages of Til, Halji, and Jang, which reflects the strong commodity living a healthy and independent life, free from all the worries of the world. The houses are more of a marvel and represent a much more ancient form of living.

    Day 10

    Chekjur Rest Day

    We follow the same routine of relaxing ourselves by having a healthy breakfast and some exploring to the villages. Then again, one more round of hot springs.

    Day 11

    Trek to Halji 3600m

    From the way to our next destination, Halji village is not far, we decided to take our time and did more sightseeing before reaching the campsite. The village holds Tibetan Buddhist Gompa, believed to be one of the oldest in Nepal. We decided to make a visit after taking out lunch.

    Day 12

    Trek to Tilchu 4100m

    The next trip was again a short follow up, where we did a bit of climbing to reach Tilchu, setting for the camp. Tilchu sits exactly at the top of the Karnali River, which we decided to have a look in the afternoon and also explore Gumba.

    Day 13

    Trek to Mane Peme 3800m

    Now the path gets more adventurous as we follow the trails of narrow cliff mountains just alongside the river. Speaking of the view, it takes a more personal touch to explain the beauty of the place. We thoroughly enjoy the trekking until we reach our campsite at Mane Peme. The campsite resided near ancient mane stones.

    Day 14

    Trek Sher. Drive Taklakot (Purang) 3930m

    It was the one last pass before heading to Tibet. We were pretty sure that the Tibetan plateau will offer us with extensive and serenity views of the regions. Once we clear the pass, we descend to Ranipauwa, walking sideways to the canyon to the Humla Karnali (at 3720 m), to reach Hilsa. We reach to the famous suspension bridge which represents the Nepal-Tibet Border. Once we crossed the border, we meet our representative from Adventure Mission Nepal (English Speaking Guide). We move to Taklakot in about half an hour drive. The drive passes through the Humla Karnali and Moto Gompa, an old Sakya Gompa at Khojarnath ( at 4000 m) pass, and through small villages before reaching to Taklakot. Taklakot is known as the trading center for the people of Humli and Tibetans. It is also known as Purang by Chinese people.

    Day 15

    Drive to Darchen 4560m (Tarboche)

    Next day was the 100 km drive to Darchen and Tarboche. If the weather blesses us, we will have the chance to actually see the sacred Mount Kailash, past the Gurla La. The road follows through the Raksas Tal and Lake Manasarovar. Tibetans and Hindus, both revere this lake at a spiritual level. Tibetans call is at the Maphan Tso or ‘the unconquerable lake’.

    We pass through the Barka plain to Darchen to make camp at Tarboche. Tarboche is profoundly adorned with thousands of flagpoles decorated with multi-colored flags and scarves fleshing out from the lines of the pole. It is believed that the prayer pole will be raised ritually and whichever direction the pole tilts if it tilts at all, it can predict the future of the Tibetan people for the coming year. It is an auspicious occasion, celebrated and participated by many Tibetan monks and locals to determine their fate at the spiritual belief. Once the ceremony is completed, the Tibetans will gather and recite their prayers holding a wooden prayer pole. It is without a doubt one of the most capturing moments so be ready to come with your cameras to capture the views.

    Chorten Kangnyi, lies to the west of Tarboche, catering some of the weird but auspicious decorated archways. Above the Taborche, lies the famous Sky Burial site of 84 Mahasiddhas, known as a burial site of famous lamas. The site is also known to hold sacred springs, Cairns and power places. The pilgrims imagine the view of death by visiting the site and lying across the flat rock with their belongings.

    We decide to set up our camp nearby Chuku Gompa, followed by the exploration of the valley at 4780 m. In a rather surprising manner, the place is very spiritual where pilgrims rub their bodies against the rocks, down with butter, to start their kora off. Inside the Gompa is a marble statue called Chuku Opame and silver inlaid conch shell with silver rings, accounting for unusual myths. It is also said that ‘Trulku’ or reincarnated lama, resides in the room of the Gompa. It is considered to be heavenly to start the kora when blesses by the local lama.

    Day 16

    Trek to Dira-Puk 5160m

    Once we complete our breakfast, our guide will escort through the kora. From Tarboche and Chuku Gompa, we move ahead to the Lha Chu river bypassing the peaceful and isolated valley, jumping from small streams, to finally witness the west side of towering Mount Kailash. The ‘Kora’ can be pretty tricky to perform since you must pass along the 13 koras in order to gain access to Inner Kora, a secret pathway, only visible after completing another kora. As we move towards the Northern face of Kailash, we come across the ancient 13th-century monastery at Dirapuk. The campsite can be directed from two routes, where one leads to the passage of a small mossy bridge, followed by the path of Gompa and other to continue along the main trail. We decided to camp in the opposite of the Gompa near the river, which displays the majestic North face of Kailash.

    Day 17

    Trek to Mani Camp 4650m (over the Drolma La)

    We leave the Lha Chu valley as soon as the sun rises to make way for the Drolma Chu Valley, to reach Drolma La (at 5,630 m). We witnessed devout pilgrims along the path of the valley, who were completely mesmerized to the god by kneeling down on their knees and extending their hands in the form of a prayer. The trail is a site for many sacred sites; butter, coin and flag wrapped rocks, rocks with footprints of the saints, rock to climb over, and many other significant sites. Before descending into the East Valley, we make a stop to have our lunch. Just below us, lies the lake of Compassion, traditionally known as Thukpe Dzingbu, also one of the highest lakes of the world. Our campsite was located at Mani, facing the eastern side of Mount Kailash.

    Day 18

    Trek to Tarboche

    Once again we resume our journey with early morning trekking to the rock steady rivers, bringing us to Zuthulpuk Gompa (at 4,790 m). The site is known as Milarepa’s meditation cave depicting the imprints of his hand, food and head prints. It was a walk in the park for trekking along some impressive gorges, Mani wall back to Barka plains and dusty Darchen, to finally reach to our jeeps. The Kora is completed-erasing all our sins, enduring the extremely cold climates, crossing through the highest passes of the world, encountering endless pilgrims, and sent our prayers for the welfare of the world. Congratulations!!

    Day 19

    Tarboche. Saga Dawa. Drive to Tirthapuri 4550m

    Note: After the Kora, we planned for Saga Dawa to save on the pre-Saga Dawa insanity so will stay for the morning of Saga Dawa at Taboche and then head towards Tirthapuri.

    In morning, we gathered around with the flock of other pilgrims, who endured the long journey to Kailash in an overloaded truck, some coming far from Kham and Amdo.

    Blessed with good karma, we pack our camp and begin driving, again passing along Lake Manasarovar to reach the important site of our pilgrimage at the ancient Tirthapuri Gompa, located near Sutlej River. The site is considered as the sacred sites of Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) and his consort Yeshe Tsogyel. They both were known to have transported themselves magically through the Tibetan world in the 8th century. This Gompa got its name after the great Indian Buddhist scholar, Atisha. One can encounter the footprints of Guru Rimpoche and Yeshe Tsogyel carved in the granite slab in the gompa. Small calcium balls, believed to have medicinal powers can be found along the plateau. The place itself is adorned with the magical infuse of rainbows to account it as a magical spot. Nearby is a hot spring, where you can wash off and relax before resting.

    Day 20

    Drive to Kyunglung

    Leaving Tirthapuri, we went to move westwards to Bon-Po Guru yam Gompa, located near the Sutlej River. It is built into the cliff which is carved with ancient tunnels, balconies, flags and artifacts. This is enough proof to suffice the existence of Guru Rimpoche and Bon-Po masters, to have dwelled in the gompa millennia ago. It is now used by the resident Rimpoche Lamas and also serves as the important Bongo monasteries in western Tibet. Currently, the gompa was rebuilt to signify its beauty and cultural traditions.

    Further east, we reach to Kyunglung villages and marched across the ruins of the old village of Kyunglung. This is a living example of the Tibet’s earliest cities resided by its inhabitants in ancient times. The Dzong on top is called Ngulkhar, which simply reiterates as ‘Silver Castle of the Kings’. Some of the old paths lead to the cave homes followed by tunnels and old stone walls to mark it as a perfect place for exploration.

    In order to access the place, we cross the Sutlej past the hot springs and limestone deposits with 20 minutes of the hike before finally reaching the place.

    Day 21

    Drive to Tzada (Toling Gompa & Tsaparang)

    Once we hop in the jeeps and started heading west, we find out the plains were pretty cold and the weather was at its peak. Then we reach to Nanda Devi in Uttaranchal, India, heading to Guge Kingdom. The view of western Tibet is simply marvelous. Continuing through the historic Dongpo, Dawa and Mangang, we finally reach the village of Tzada, near Tsaparang and Toling Gompa, and we set up the camp at the location.

    Day 22

    Tzada. Visit Toling & Tsaparang

    We have a full day to visit the 11th century Toling Gompa, the most important monastery in western Tibet and also visit the Tsaprang, the ancient capital of Guge Kingdom. Both of the sites are completely secluded from the modern world, which is filled with caves and pathways to mineral deposits used in ancient times. Guge was found a thousand years ago by one of the three sons of Lang Darma, the anti- Buddhist King. White Palace Red Palace, Yamantaka Chapel, Tara Chapel and Mandala Chapel are some of the major attractions, which are known to have linked with the Sakyamuni Buddha, King Songsten Gampo and other historical figures.

    Day 23

    Drive to Manasarovar

    Leaving Guge, we followed up a different route, heading northeast to the village of Monster through a large pass which usually cuts of Guge from the rest of Tibet in winter due to excessive snow.

    Day 24

    Drive to Paryang 4750m

    The drive from Lake Manasarovar to Paryang was a 300 km drive following through the wild countryside. We pass through the Mayum-Tso Lake and climb to Mayum La, to face the magnificent mountain scenery. It can be accounted as one of the most beautiful moments of our journey. What makes even more serene is the cloud clad storms clashing in distant Tibetan land, horses and sheep herding along the nearby plains.

    Day 25

    Drive to Saga 4600m

    We leave for Paryang and drive for another 255 km east, passing through some of the marked prayer flags and other landmarks. The view is simply mesmerizing to watch, huge mountains bordering Nepal on one side while lakes, river and Tibetan villages on the other side. Moving across the beauty, we finally march to the gentle desert sand dunes of Saga. That’s where we decide to make camp.

    Day 26

    Drive to Shigatse 3900m

    We just pass through the high plains of majestic and alluring Tibet. We had a chance to come across the famous Brahmaputra River, before arriving in Lhatse. The river is said to have originated from Kailash itself. From Lhatse, we take a drive of another 157km to Shigatse, moving through many lonely Tibetan villages. Shigatse is the second largest city in Tibet, known for its best-preserved monastery, the Tashilhunpo Gompa. The Gompa is home to the Panchen Lama, also accounts for one of the largest functioning monasteries in Tibet. We have a couple of hours to visit the monastery before heading to Lhasa. Our night stay is at Shigatse.

    Day 27

    Drive to Lhasa 3650m

    Before driving to the final destination of Lhasa, we will have a small amount of time to visit Barkhor Square. It is a resemblance of complete spiritual world at dusk when all the pilgrims perform their kora at the square and Jokhang Temple.

    Day 28 - 29

    Sightseeing of Lhasa

    Following two days, we visit some of the most appealing places near Lhasa. One can always opt for witnessing the local scenery and bazaars of the market. You can also try out the Ganden Monastery or Tsurphu Monastery by paying some extra money.

    Jokhang temple is considered as the Holiest temple in Tibet, where resides the sacred statue of Jowo Sakyamuni. The place is filled with pilgrims and the atmosphere is endowed with the incantations and recitation of prayers. There is a vibe of spiritual energy in the atmosphere which one can always feel down the spine. The prayer of the holy inner circle of Barkhor is considered as good luck. The market is best known for Tibetan varieties through the land envisaging the traditions of Tibetan culture.

    Drepung and Sera Monasteries are a well-fabled monastery in Tibetan culture. The Sera is one of the best-preserved monasteries of the time, highly known for its debating session in the courtyard during the afternoon. Within the wall of the monasteries, live hundreds of monks who practice their religion. Drepung was built during the 14th century and was the largest Gompa of the world once, comprising of around 10,000 monks.

    Norbulingka - was a summer palace of Dalai Lama, until Chinese occupation disavowed their status. It is set in a quiet and relaxing garden known to house the Dalai Lama’s pets. One of the murals in the palace depicts the history of the Dalai Lamas.

    Potala Palace - One of the colorful red, white, black and gold palaces invigorates the plains of Lhasa. It accounted for the treasury comprising of the gold and silver stupas of the previous Dalai Lama. It also is known as the winter quarters of Dalai Lama comprised of many state rooms and chapels. Earlier, there was a palace prevalent on the same site during the 5-6th century, but another palace was constructed back in the 17th century.

    Day 30

    Depart to Kathmandu. Rest in the evening.

    We will drive to Gongar Airport and then board our flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu. Depending on your flight timing we can arrange for sightseeing. In the evening we will go for a cultural program with typical Nepali dinner to review your trip to Nepal and Tibet.
