Our most delightful Simikot Kailash Guge Kingdom tour starts from Nepal and will end in Lhasa. We trek from Simikot, west of Nepal to Holy Mount Kailash. After the Kailash Kora Trek, the tour continues to ancient kingdom Guge in western part of Tibet. Guge was an earliest kingdom in Western Tibet. The kingdom was centered in present-day Zanda County, within Ngari Prefecture of Tibet. At various points in history after 10th century A.D, the kingdom held sway over a vast area including south-eastern Zanskar, Upper Kinnaur, and Spiti valley either by conquest or as tributaries. The ruins of the former capital of Guge kingdom are located at Tsaparang in the Sutlej valley, not far from Mount Kailash and 1,200 miles (1,900 km) westwards from Lhasa.

Mt. Kailash from there we head towards west Tibet to explore some of the wonders of the ancient Guge Kingdom Tibet. Several monasteries, houses, cave dwellings and stupas are nestled on the hill and its surrounding area. Best Tibetan murals, sculptures and stone inscriptions lies in this kingdom. White Palace, Red Palace, Yamantaka Chapel, Tara Chapel and Mandala Chapel are the major attractions of the Guge Kingdom. They are historically linke with Buddha, Shakyamuni, Songtsen Gampo, other kings and ministers.
