Day 06: Trek to Zuthulphuk (5600 m; 22 kms; about 9-10 hrs.)
You can start your morning with a stunning view of the Mount Kailash. After breakfast, you would be asked to begin your trek uphill towards Zuthulphuk. As a forewarning, we must tell you that this trek is not going to be an easy one, so please prepare yourself both physically and mentally. But if you bear in mind that this is a pilgrimage of a lifetime, you can successfully undertake it. Trekking under the Holy Mount Kailash, you will reach the Drolma La pass (5800 m), which is the highest point of the trek to Mount Kailash. This trek is going to be a little rocky and steep, so you must be in a fit condition. From the Drolma La Pass, we will descend towards the gradual undulating field of Zuthulphuk. As you move down, on a clear morning, you will be blessed with the Darshan of Gauri Kunda. The walk becomes pleasant and relaxing from the valley below, with gentle slopes over the grassy fields. At Zuthulphuk, you can relax, soak in the breadth-taking view around you and spend the nippy night at our pleasant guesthouse/camp that would be kept warm for you.

After breakfast, at the guesthouse/camp you would want to while away your morning time in solitude, exploring the caves and visiting the temple and shrines of Zuthulphuk, as per your wishes. An old, married couple supervises the temple here, which houses about half a dozen Tibetan devotees and helpers who maintain the building in a Spartan condition. You will see meditation platforms in the cave that are deeply inviting.
It is worthwhile climbing up to these caves before you end your final trek to the holy Kailash Mount. After a 10 km walk (4-5 hours) you will reach your final destination of your trek near Darchen. Here you will re-unit with the pilgrims, who could not do the Parikarma. From here our vehicles will take you to the hotel in Taklakot for a restful, overnight stay.

Day 08: Gradual trek to Darchen (10 kms; about 3 to 4 hours). Drive to Taklakot (about 3 to 4 hours)
This would be the last leg of your trek that can easily be completed in three to four hours, so you can wake up at your normal time before beginning your descent downhill towards the Darchen town. From there, you will be picked up and transported to Comfortmytravel’s Guest House at Darchen, where the other group members will be waiting for you. Once there, you will continue your journey to Taklakot, completing the remaining course of Lake Mansarovar Parikrama by road on a vehicle. You can relax and spend the night at our Taklakot Guest House.
