Duration: 17 days
Pilgrimage travel to the sacred Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake
Meeting date: 21th April 2019
Mount Kailash (6740m) is located in the North of the Himalayas, in Tibet. This fascinating mountain resembles a meteor that got stuck in the ground. Kailash is the spiritual center of four great religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and the ancient Tibetan religion that came before Buddhism – Bongo. This mountain is the destination of many pilgrims coming from all over the world. Nowadays, a growing number of people believe that Kailash is the energy center of the Earth and that the entrance to the Forbidden City – Shambhala – is located near the mountain. Also near Kailash, on the Tibetan plateau, is the the impressive Lake Manasarovar. Going on a pilgrimage around Mount Kailash and swimming in Manasarovar are sacred experiences that bring redemption and wash away all sins committed throughout life.
Buddhist pilgrims circle the mountain on foot, throwing their bodies to the ground at intervals, thus measuring the entire path (52km). The simplicity of nature, the spirituality and the lack of internet and mobile phone connections will help you feel “out of this world”.

The holy peak for people practicing Hindu and Buddhist religions, the navel of the world, the mountain that no one has ever climbed, are just a few terms depicting Mt.Kailash. People go there to achieve purification and seek redemption; they walk around the sacred mountain making a 52km-long circle in 4 days. Each person has a different experience to tell because we are all different and unique.

I enjoyed EST expeditions and made very good friends, who I have been in regular contact with ever since. I experienced and learned a lot during the two expeditions I went to with Extreme Summit Team. I appreciate the way in which Dragan does his job. His knowledge of the secrets of the Himalayas inspires confidence in each member of the expedition and my opinion is that he is capable to lead to the top of the mountain even people with modest mountaineering skills. I am always pleased to recommend EST team to all my colleagues who would like to experience the challenges of high mountain climbing
“I came to know Dragan and his extremist team somewhat too late. I had climbed and walked across the mountains for over thirty years (it is not just the air but the spirit of mountains), but never much farther than Mt. Durmitor and Mt. Prokletije and never higher than Mt. Olympus. For a long time I thought I could not go farther or higher until I met Dragan who is familiar with paths that lead far and beyond and high up in the air and joined him when I was sixty something, for the time being just to the Himalayas, the Andes, Mt. Atlas. Sounds incomplete, doesn’t it?
I was fortunate enough to be a member of three expeditions organized by EST: Island peak, Aconcagua and Cho Oyu. They are true professionals, good and likeable people who not only provide technical assistance but also offer spiritual development. It was an honor to meet Dragan, Miloš and Nina who made gravity have less of an effect on me.
