A pilgrimage trek completing the outer kora circuit around Mount Kailash, also visiting several sites around Lake Manasarovar. From Kathmandu we flew in a small plane over the western Nepal Himalayas to the mountain village of Simikot. From here we aclimatising to the altitude as we trekked over Nara Bhanjyang La reaching the Chinese border at Hilsa in 6 days walking. After a night camping on the shore of Manasarovar we spent 5 days on our Kailash kora. Finally after two more nights by the sacred lake we returned across the Tibetan plateau, with views of Shishapangma from Lalung La, making a road crossing back into Nepal at Zang Mu. The trip was from 21st September - 11th October 2013
