Here, our land cruisers would be waiting to take the group to Purang after completing custom and immigration formalities. Overnight at Hotel Purang Himalaya or similar.

You will spend a full day (doing nothing beside rest) to acclimatize yourself to undertake the most difficult pilgrimage on earth called Mount Kailash Mansarovar Yatra.

Day 04: Drive from Purang to Chui Gompa, Mansarovar (4560 m) 72 km/ 3 hrs. drive
This day is the ultimate day for Mount Kailash Mansarovar Yatra as you will have the first darshan of Holy lake Mansarovar.After breakfast, drive to Chui Gompa (4560 m) through a rough terrain via RakshasTaal. Today is the day of lifetime, as we will have the first sight (darshan) of Holy Mt. Kailash and Holy Lake Manasarovar. We shall reach our guest house by doing lake Mansarovar Parikrama. Time permitting, visit Hot Spring. Overnight at Chui Gompa Guest House.

Day 05 Puja at Mansarovara and dive to Darchen (4620 m) 40 km/ 1.5 hrs.

Day 06: Drive to Sershong (40 km) and trek to Dirapuk (4860 m) 7 km/ 7-8 hrs.
After breakfast, drive to Shershong also known as Tarboche, the trek starting point of Mount Kailash Parikrama. Tarboche is also known as the outer "Asthapath". The first day of our Kora is a gradual walk with multitudes of other local pilgrims chanting and praying. The trail leads us to few ups and downs till we reach our camp/guest house at Dirapuk (4860 m) 7 km/ 7-8 hours trek. (Trek shall start once all ponies / yaks are ready to move along with the group). Those not feeling themselves fit to continue Parikarma will drive back to Darchen and wait for the Parikarma group to return. Overnight at Hotel Dirapuk.

Day 07: Trek to Zuthulphuk (4760 m) 18 km/ 9 - 10 hrs.
Today our circumbulation (Kora) leads to much higher side of the holy path just beneath the Holy Mount Kailash. The walk will bring us to one of the highest point at Drolma La (5680 m). before descending to the gradual field towards Zuthulphuk for the overnight stay after 5-6 hours walk. Zuthulphuk (4760 m) 18 km/ 9 - 10 hrs.
After early breakfast, group will set off as the sun's rays break over the ridges above. After the footbridge the trail rises up a rocky slope. Take this gently but steadily. It soon reaches a level walk. The peak of Mount Kailash rises to the right and can now be seen linked to a long spur, which joins the eastern ridge. This is the top edge of the glacial valley from which the Lhachu ("Divine River") flows.
This day is the climax of this holy journey & is the most difficult day of our journey. One has to pass through Drolma La Pass - 5680m - highest altitude on this tour. Physically it is the most arduous day. At the pass is a large boulder depicting Tara, festooned with prayer flags. Here too Tibetans leave a memento of themselves such as a tooth, a lock of hair or even a personal snapshot.
After perhaps 30 minutes, we descend a steep, rock-strewn path to the valley below. Just below the pass is Lake Tu-jeChenpoDzingbu (Gauri Kund) i.e. "The Pool of Great Compassion". Take great care now because it is easy to sprain your ankle or worse. You must negotiate steep staircases down to a snowfield. On the ridge above is a formation known as the Lekyi Ta-ra ("Axe of Karma"), as though one's moment ripen in an accident, suffering or death.
A final steep descend brings you to the valley floor. From here it is still about 5 hours to the day's destination with no shelter in between. It is vitally important to remain on the right-hand side of the river, the West bank. If not, you will get trapped, unable to cross it. The walk now becomes very pleasant and relaxing (as long as the weather is clear and there is no howling gale.) The path follows the gentle slope of the valley over grassy fields and clear brooks for several Kilometers before it narrows and turns further south to merge with another valley before reaching Zuthulphuk, the "Miracle Cave" of Milarepa. Overnight stay in the newly setup Fixed Luxury Camp.

Day 08 Zuthulphuk to Darchen trek 10 km/ 4 - 5 hrs. & drive to Hilsa 150 km/6-7 hrs.
The morning can be spent exploring the caves and visiting the temples and shrine that has been built around Milarepa's cave. A married elderly couple supervises the temple, which is usually an active residence for over half a dozen Tibetan devotees, helpers, or relatives who continuously busy themselves with the tasks of maintaining the buildings. One imagines Milarepa's disciples meditating here. Many of the caves contain meditation platforms, self-contained by dry stonewalls which divide them from their cooking partitions and entrance areas. It is well worth the short climb up to these caves before beginning the final stage of the trek.
The winding gradual track finally ends our holy pilgrimage walk 10 km/ 4 - 5 hrs. Once we reach at the trek end point near Darchen. (Those who could not do parikarma would be waiting to welcome other group members at this point). Our bus will be waiting to take the group to the Hilsa. Time permitting, airlift to Simikot.

Day 09 Fly to Nepalganj
If the group is staying in Hilsa, the Helicopter will ferry the group to Simikot (or to Nepalgunj depending upon the availability). Stay overnight in Nepalganj or drive back to Lucknow.
