The first day of Kora is a gradual walk with multitudes of other local pilgrims chanting and praying. The trail leads to few vicissitudes until we reach our camp or guest house at Dirapuk (4860 m) which is of 7 km/ 5 - 6 hours trek. Enjoy camping on the nice grassy meadows with a view of Kailash, North West face. Those not feeling themselves fit to continue parikrama would drive back to Darchen and wait for the Parikarma group to return. Spend your night at camp or guesthouse.

After early breakfast, group will set off as the sunray’s break over the ridges above. After the footbridge, the trail rises up a rocky slope. Proceed moderately but steadily. It soon reaches a level walk. See the peak of Mount Kailash rises to the right and can now linked to a long spur, which joins the eastern ridge. It is the top edge of the glacial valley from which the Lhachu (“Divine River”) flows.

This day is the climax of this holy journey & is the most difficult day of our journey. One has to pass through Drolma La Pass - 5200 m - highest altitude on this tour. Physically it is the most arduous day. At the pass is a large boulder depicting Tara, festooned with prayer flags. Here too Tibetans leave a memento of themselves such as a tooth, a lock of hair or even a personal snapshot.

After conceivably 30 minutes, we descend a steep, rock-strewn path to the valley below. Just below the pass is Lake Tu-je Chenpo Dzingbu (Gauri Kund) i.e. “The Pool of Great Compassion”. Take great care now because it is easy to sprain your ankle or worse. You must negotiate steep staircases down to a snowfield. The only way down is to jump from boulder to boulder across a large rock fall. On the ridge above is a formation known as the Lekyi Ta-ra (“Axe of Karma”), as though one’s moment ripen in an accident, suffering or death.

A final steep descending staircase brings you to the valley floor. From here it is still about 5 hours to the day’s destination with no shelter in between. It is vitally important to remain on the right hand side of the river, the West bank. If not, you will get trapped, unable to cross it. The walk now becomes very pleasant and relaxing (as long as the weather is clear and there is no howling gale.) The path follows the gentle slope of the valley over grassy fields and clear brooks for several Kilometers before it narrows and turns further south to merge with another valley before reaching Zuthulphuk, the “Miracle Cave” of Milarepa. Spend overnight in fixed tents.

Day 11: Zuthulphuk to Darchen trek 10 km/ 4 - 5 hrs. and drive to Hor Quo (4750 m)
The morning can be spent exploring the caves and visiting the temples and shrine been built around Milarepa’s cave. A married elderly couple supervises the temple, which is usually an active residence for over half a dozen Tibetan devotees, helpers, or relatives who continuously busy themselves with the tasks of maintaining the buildings.One imagines Milarepa’s disciples meditating here. Many of the caves contain meditation platforms, self-contained by dry stonewalls which divide them from their cooking partitions and entrance areas. It is well worth the short climb up to these caves before beginning the final stage of the trek. The winding gradual tracks finally ends our holy pilgrimage walk 10 km/ 4 - 5 hrs. Once we reach at the trek end point near Darchen, our land cruisers will be waiting to take the group back to Mansarovar for a final holy Dip at Manasarovar (Those who could not do parikarma shall be waiting at Hor Quo for the remaining group members to come back. Overnight at a guest house in Hor Quo.
