15 Days Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar Group Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Lhasa by air or land

Welcome to Lhasa, Tibet!

The moment you touch down in Lhasa Gonggar Airport or train station, our local tour guide will pick you up and get you to the hotel. The journey from the airport to the hotel is about 60km (1 hour) and 25km (30 mins) from the train station.

The rest of the day is free at leisure. You can explore Lhasa city while getting your body acclimatized to the elevation and weather in Lhasa.

Overnight in Lhasa.

Day 2: Lhasa Tour: Jokhang Temple, Bakhor Street and Sera Monastery.

Day 2 of your 15 Days Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar Group Tour will be your first real full day in this region.

Our guide will meet you at the hotel and bring you to our first Lhasa attraction: Jokhang Temple. Jokhang Temple is one of the most important and busiest temples in Tibet. So don’t be surprised to see many local pilgrims throughout the day.

After touring the temple, you can walk around Barkhor Square and Barkhor Street. Over here, you have 2 main tasks: to take beautiful photos and to empty your wallets!

Once you’re done bargaining and negotiating with the local sellers, we will proceed to the 15th-century Sera Monastery. You will most definitely catch the enjoyable and vibrant debates among the monks in the monastery ground. This is actually the main attraction of Sera Monastery for tourists!

Your body is getting more prepared for the upcoming Tibet adventure as your acclimatization continues.

Overnight in Lhasa.

Day 3: Lhasa local tours: Potala Palace, Drepung Monastery

Our first attraction today is the Potala Palace. Potala Palace is without a doubt Lhasa’s and Tibet’s most popular and most visited attraction. Built in the 7th century, it used to be the home of the Dalai Lamas until 1959. Today it functions mainly as a museum.

In the afternoon, we will visit the Drepung Monastery, once the world’s largest monastery that housed for more than 10,000 monks.

You’re now physically ready to embark on the real Tibet adventure starting tomorrow. Have an early rest to prepare for the journey!

As we continue to drive along the lake, we will reach Nagarze for our lunch stop.

On our drive to Gyantse, more magnificent Tibetan valleys and villages will present themselves to us. Along the way, we will make a brief stop at Karo La Pass (5150m) to see a close-up view of Mount Nyenchen Tanglha.

Once we arrive in Gyantse, we visit Kumbum Stupa and Palcho Monastery.

Day 7: Saga – Darchen  (5000m), 520km – View of Lake Mansarovar and Mt Kailash.

Come late afternoon, we will reach the sought-after Lake Mansarovar. This is one of the most revered, most respected and most visited lakes in Tibet. Several prominent peaks like the Gurla Mandhata (7760m) imposingly surround the lake.

Next, we will drive to Darchen village, which is the starting point of the Mt Kailash (7762m) trekking. Even from here, you will already have a great front view of the splendid Mount Kailash.

Once you are in Darchen, you can explore the town, prepare for your forthcoming trekking in the next few days or you can even hike the nearby hills for fun and practice.

In the afternoon, your guide will arrange for the trekking necessities like porters and yaks for your luggage transportation.

Day 9: 2nd Day of the Trekking to Zultul Puk (4790m) 18km – Dikpala Pass (5000m) and Dormala Pass (5600m).

Today will be the most challenging part of your Tibet trekking trip. We will cross both the Dikpala Pass (5000m) and Dorma La Pass (5600m). Although you might be very tired, it’s good to remind yourself to relax and absorb the magnificent views. At these points, you are right behind Mount Kailash and the views are just stunning.

We will then climb down into a long valley and have lunch at Shabjay Dakpo nomadic tent.

After lunch, we will visit Zultul Puk Monastery (4790m).
