This is a trip to the most sacred peak of Asia – the 6700 meter high Mount Kailash. Looking like a symmetrical cone shaped rock, this perennially ice-capped mountain dominates the Himalayan Barrier and is of great spiritual significance for Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bon-Po (the traditional religion of the region).

This is indeed the trip of a lifetime, a dream for many… And now a blessing for those who aren’t avid trekkers, since it involves no trekking (unless one does the Parikrama). Take a look…

INR 2,05,000
