Kailash Mansarovar Trekking

Kailash Mansarovar Trekking

Mount Kailash is considered as the most important sacred site of four religions and 2 billion people. Mount Kailash is a breathtaking fusion of rock and ice soaring to over 22,000 feet in the farthest reaches of western Tibet. This holy place is one of the least traveled place, with not more than a few thousand pilgrims visiting each year because of the weeks-long, awe-inspiring journey it takes to reach the mountain.

the Kailash Mansarovar. There are various ways to access the Kailash Mansarovar. Tibet Travel Tour truly wants you to enjoy the beauty and also the pilgrimage to this Holy place. The Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar Yatra covers about 18 days. In this yatra, all pilgrims will be taken to the great countryside of far western Tibet and numerous holy monasteries before reaching the base of Mount Kailash. For those persons who feel that trekking on the entire route might be too difficult, yaks and horses can be hired for an additional cost. Before reaching Mount Kailash, the pilgrims will go to the nearby holy waters of Lake Mansarovar, known as the Lake of Consciousness and Enlightenment, where they will have the opportunity to take a sacred bath and perform Puja on the banks.

History of Mount Kailash
As long as there have been ancient religions in Asia, there has been a reverence for Mount Kailash. The religions of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism consider the Mount Kailash as the center and birthplace of the entire world. Kailash is considered as the mythical Mt. Meru in the Vedas. The mountain was indeed legendary even before the great Hindu epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, were written. Most of the Hindus believe Mount Kailash to be the home of Lord Shiva. According to Sanskrit literature, the Lord Shiva lives on Mt. Kailash where he spends his time practicing yogic austerities with his divine consort, Parvati. For a Hindu, to make the Yatra to Kailash and have the darshan (divine view) of Shiva's home is to get release from the clutches of ignorance and delusion. The Tibetan Buddhists call the mountain as King Rimpoche, the 'Precious One of Glacial Snow'. It is called as Astapada, the place where Rishaba (the first of the twenty-four Tirthankaras) attained liberation by Jains. And for followers of Bon, Tibet's pre-Buddhist religion, Kailash is Mount Tise - the site of a 12th century battle between the Buddhist sage Milarepa and the Bon shaman Naro Bon-chung.
