Kailash is considered as an important pilgrimage destination as well as a power point where it is possible to gain inspiration and energy to transform oneself from this physical to a higher spiritual level. The custom of circumambulating mount Kailash is believed to purify the soul and cultivate in each pilgrim the ability to perceive the divinity. The experience is elevating and inspiring, and many pilgrims return to their homes with feelings of exaltation and spiritual inspiration.

Karnali Excursions was one of the first tour agencies in Nepal to offer Yatra to Kailash in 1993, when China opened its doors to tourism. Ever since, we have been providing a strong, well-organized and spiritually fulfilling experience for those who join with us for this Yatra of a lifetime.

Here are some of the things we offer that make our Yatra special, meaningful and different than other tour companies:

  • We teach yoga and pranayam, which help to acclimatize in high altitude
  • We offer regular support during the Yatra to help you to cope with Acute Mountain Sickness
  • We provide personal escort to senior citizens and those who need extra support
  • We demonstrate walking, trekking, eating and sleeping techniques during the entire journey
  • Karnali Excursions’s senior leaders join as facilitators and Yatra leaders
  • We perform morning and evening prayers followed by Bhajans and Kirtans
  • We serve North Indian, Chinese, Gujrati and South Indian pure vegetarian meals
