Inner Kailash Parikrama/ Kora tour has 2 days focus on inner Kailash excursion and Nandi Kora (30 KM) the timing of start parikrama /kora depends up on the decision of PSP at darchen, if they permit us to camp above darchen we can camp at Serlung Gompa for first night and make Nandi Inner Parikarma / Korabut if they do not permit us for camp we need to start Nandi inner Kora at early morning from darchen which takes around 16 hours. This day is one of most spiritual day for all pilgrims but also the hardest day on this spiritual journey. If we complete this Kora on day frist we can make another special program “ viewing Kailash as form of Shiva Lingam” or the bird’s eye view of Kailash parvet above the Gyanthok Monastery which is extra ordinary spiritual experience of Mt.
