Kailash via Nepalgunj
Tibet, an autonomous region of China and home to the holy Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake is a famous pilgrimage destination for the devotees of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Bon religions and an epitome of beauty and admiration to the rest of the world.
Mt. Kailash Manasarovar via Simikot trek gives you an opportunity to get pleasure from the natural beauty of both the Nepalese and the Tibetan landscapes. This Kailash Manasarovar trek serves both adventure seekers and religious tourists. The tour proceeds from the border at Hilsa and then heads toward Mt. Kailash and Manasarovar. Circumambulating the mountain, parikrama, or kora on foot is an ancient ritual of devotion that is still practiced by devotees with the faith that it will bring good fortune in one’s life. Hindus and Buddhists perform kora/parikrama in the mountain in a clockwise direction whereas Jain and Bonpo religions followers believe in other way around i.e. anticlockwise. Kailash parikrama begins as soon as we reach Yama Dwar. We will cross the highest elevation during the trek- Dolma la Pass (5700m) while performing the 2nd kora/parikrama. Another major highlight of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra (journey) is Lake Mansarovar, the highest freshwater lake in the world (4500m). Pilgrims believe that drinking water from the lake or taking a dip or bath in the lake will wash away all their sins for 100 lifetimes.
