Darchen

Nature At Its Best

At the foot of the mount Kailash there is an isolated village of Darchen which is situated right in front of mount Kailash and southeast of Shiquanne. People usually come here to visit the holy mountain of Mount Kailash and stay for spending the rest of the days making it an international town for people to stop by while visiting the mount Kailash.

The busiest time around the year for the local Tibetans is during the Saga Dawa festival, the time when thousands of the pilgrims from all over the world take a visit to the holy mount Kailash. The people of the village offer food and accommodations to the visitors. There are some family guesthouses and hostels for people to stay over which is cheap and affordable.

It is also believed that Darchen witnesses about 100,000 guests each year, which has led to the increase to hostels and home stays. There are several sweet tea houses where people can stop for a quick drink, especially butter tea which is considered to keep the Tibetans warm. The teahouses are quite simple but still people can enjoy the cup of tea here.
