About Kailash view from Lapche la

Kailash is a well-respected holy mountain situated nearby Sacred lake Manasarovar in Tibet.  After the Covid 19 pandemic, the border is closed to Tibet. So seeing Kailash is abandoned for an uncertain time. But there is always the possibility of solvation of any problem.

Participating in a Shamanism program in Simikot gives you a deep feeling of Nepalese traditions.  Trekking in the remote area of Nepal along the Karnali river refreshes you far better. Bathing in the natural hot springs in such high mountains is another trip enjoyment. Crossing Nyalula 4900 meters passing through the snowy peaks is the point of entering Limi valley. You can see the Lapche La pass, the Tibet border already from this pass.  Massive bare landscapes have begun to be seen from here. Nepal's oldest Buddhist monastery is located in Halgi.
