For the time being, it’s off limits to travelers in order to accommodate earthquake relief efforts. To help visitors discover alternatives, Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) updates travelers with details on the Mt Kailash trek.
- This is a special experience: Hindu, Tibetan Buddhist, and other local religious pilgrims flock here to make the ritualistic trek around Kailash’s base. It is believed that the circuit washes the soul of anger, fear, and prejudice.
