Along our drive, we admire views of mountains, lakes and amazing landscape of Tibet. Lake Mansarovar, the highest fresh water lake in the world has religious significance. It is believed that taking dip or bath in this lake will wash away all sins. You can take holy bath before parikrama (circumambulation) of Kailash as well as perform puja and hawan on the banks of the lake. Then, we take drive to reach Yama Dwar, the starting point of parikrama. Non-parikrama group drives back to Darchen after Puja while parikrama group begins their trek to visit North Face of Mt. Kailash and Dirapuk. The trekking is via Dolma La Pass, the highest and toughest pass of entire journey. You get to visit Gauri Kund, holy lake located beyond the Dolma La Pass.
