Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

Kailash

The most reverred yatra in Hindu religion standing tall at 22,000 feet - Mount Kailash - and the abode of Lord Shiva! This yatra is mainly known for two things: doing a parikrama (circumambugation) of the holy Mount Kailash and taking a holy dip in the pious Mansarovar Lake. The holy dip in Mansarovar Lake is said to relieve of any sins and bringing salvation to the pilgrims.

Being the abode of Lord Shiva - the very place where Lord Shiva and his wife Goddess Parvati reside at the peak in a state of meditation, it is mainly for the Hindus that Kailash is a sacred place - however Kailash is also regarded very highly in Buddhists, Jains and the Bon. According to a common belief the first Jain Tirthankara attained Nirvana at the very Kailash.

Mansarovar

The highest freshwater lake in the world which stands at an altitude of 4500 meters is located in Tibet and considered as one of the holiest lakes in Asia. This lake is also a visual delight for the pilgrims as it stands at the foot of Mt. Kailash and also changes its colors, blue at the shores, emrald green towards the center and looks stunning in the moonlight.

For this Yatra it is extremely important that one must ensure a lot of fitness.
