Himalaya Kailash Hotel

Himalaya Kailash Hotel, located at the foot of Mt. Kailash, Darchen, Purang County, Ngari, western Tibet, has started the trial run of its business since Jun 2014.

Himalaya Kailash Hotel has a total of 192 guestrooms, including 6 Superior Single Rooms; 9 of Superior Suites; 120 Twin Rooms; 56 of 4-person Dorm-bed Rooms, 1 of 8-person Dorm-bed Rooms. It also has 32 rooms provided for guides & drivers.

Himalaya Kailash Hotel is the best hotel available in Darchen at the moment. The guestrooms are spacious and comfortable in Tibetan design. The hotel hall and guestroom are all covered with Tibetan carpets. Some of the guestrooms have ventilation systems, fresh air systems, automatic sprinkler systems, and fire control systems.

Himalaya Kailash Hotel has Chinese and Western buffet restaurants, cafes, foot massage, karaoke, sauna, internet bar, etc.

Since this is the only 4 star here at Darchen, the starting point of the Mt Kailash kora, also probably the only hotel here with an indoor bathroom available, so you can expect that it’s also very pricy. Rooms in Himalaya Kailash Hotel are in high demand, especially in the pilgrimage peak month. So, you would better book early before these months. Please contact us for more information if you are interested.

In your inquiry you mentioned, you would like to book 6 rooms of Himalaya Kailash Hotel from Sep.1st 2018. May I ask if you have booked any Tibet tour. We are the local tour operator based in Lhasa. We can book the Himalaya Kailash Hotel for you after you book the Tibet tour with us. 

We have 15 days Mt.Everest & Mt Kailash Kora Pilgrimage Group Tour. Which departure date do you prefer?

Answered by Caroline 2018-04-05

In your inquiry, you mentioned that there are three of you would like to have an Everest & Kailash tour in October. For travelers less than five, we usually suggest them join our small group tours to keep the cost down. We do have a 15-day Mt. Everest & Mt. Kailash Kora Pilgrimage Group Tour which includes three days’ kora you don’t like. Thus, the only way is to have a private tour. Please check the following itinerary.

Indian passport holders to visit Kailash

Answered by Caroline 2018-01-27
But I am sorry to tell you that according to the regulations, travel agencies are not able to arrange Indian passport holders to visit Kailash. If you want to visit other places in Tibet, I mean except for Ngari Prefecture, we can help you. Hope to have your understanding!

Asked by Thak***

I am Indian Citizen, but at present at Canada, I would like to visit Kailash Mansarovar. Can you arrange for Tibet Permit + China Visa + CAR for Journey of PARIKRAMA of Mt. Kailsha and Mansarovar. I can come from India or can directly take flight to Shanghai. but which one will be more easy and suitable. This is advance preparation, I am intending to visit in August-2018. Please respond in email. Thanks What type of vegetarian food is available during train journey? what will be estimated rate for dish for one person ? thanks

Answered by Amy 2017-12-23
Dear Thakkar, Firstly please kindly note: Indian passport holders are NOT allowed to go to Mt.Kailash via travel agency, so I'm wondering if you have a passport of another nationality? It's no problem if you have. But you could go to visit any other places in Tibet except Mt.Kailash if you don't have other passport. About China visa, you have to apply for it at Chinese embassy in your own country before coming to China. You need to fly from India or Canada to a China city(such as Shanghai) first, then take the flight or train from this city to Lhasa directly, got it? The both Chinese & Tibetan style vegetarian food are available on the train. For breakfast, passengers will be served with porridge, pickles, eggs, bread and milk, which is about $3 per person. Those who are in favor of noodles could choose from Snow Vegetable Noodle etc. For lunch and dinner, Tibetan style dishes are the most popular with passengers on the Tibet train. Among all train meals, there are 55 cold dishes, 8 Tibetan dishes, 32 ordinary dishes and 8 soup dishes. It costs about $5 per person per dish. Also, there is meal cart pushed throughout the train by attendants during mealtime, selling Chinese-style bento for about $3 per person per dish.
