Besides the two options, we have special offer for Kailash Saga Dawa festival tour and Full Moon tour. The Tibetan Saga Dawa Festival is held at Darpoche. It is the starting point of Kailash Kora. During the celebration, Tibetans hang their prayer flags on a vertical prayer flag pole. What’s more, the Tibetan Lamas will circulate around the prayer flag while reciting special prayers. When the ceremony ends, locals do their kora (trek). Therefore, if you travel to Kailash during the festival, you will feel the sacred atmosphere which offers you a fresh experience of Tibet. Moreover, if travelers choose the Kailash full moon tour, they will encounter an unbelievable lifetime experience of full moon night at the holy mountain.
