Kathmandu to Nyalam (3750m)
Nepal - Tibet border. After completing the border formalities at both the Nepalese and Chinese immigration posts we drive up a series of incredibly steep switchbacks to Zhangmu on the Tibetan side of the border.  We then drive for another 30km to Nyalam, again on a steep winding road which passes through a mossy gully with cascading waterfalls.

Prayang to Manasarovar (4560m) 
Beyond Prayang, there are several river crossings to negotiate before we see our first view of Mt. Kailash from Horr Chu Pass. We then arrive at the beautiful Lake Manasarovar , just 30km south of Mt Kailash. It is separated from another lake, Rakshas Tal, by a narrow strip of land and the two lakes are linked by a small channel. On the rare occasions when water
flows in this channel, it is said to be a good sign for the Tibetan people.

Darchen to Dira-Puk (4800m)We start our Kora Parikrama today and walk up the Lha Chu Valley through beautiful green meadows and streams with Mt Kailash towering above us. We follow the river which enters a narrow canyon with high, steep cliffs and spectacular waterfalls. Continuing up the valley, the north face of Kailash comes into view before we reach the 13th century monastery at Dira-puk.

Dira-Puk to Zutul-Puk (4790m)  We now leave the Lha Chu Valley and enter the Drolma Chu Valley, heading up towards a high pass, the Drolma La (5630m). It's a tough climb to the summit which is festooned with prayer flags but from there it is all downhill or flat to Zutul-puk, with views of one of the highest lakes in the world, Thukpe Dzingbu Lake, known as the Lake of Compassion. As well as the monastery at Zutul-puk, there are several meditation caves and another cave containing an image of Milarepa.
