Trip Description

"A journey of a lifetime that all human being should have made once"

The Holy Mt. Kailash is situated at a height of 6714 m. (22156 ft.) above sea level. For four Major religions of the world, i.e. for Buddhism, Jainism, Bompo (a religion prior to Buddhism in Tibet) and Hinduism, Mount Kailash is the spot of utmost reverence. For the Buddhists, Kailash is the center point of the universe. For the Jains, Kailash is the Mount Ashtapada, a very holy place of pilgrimage. For the Bompo followers, Kailash is the nine-faced swastika mountain and is constantly emanating great power. For the Hindus Kailash is the Sumeru Parvat, the spiritual center of the world around which all the earthly powers revolve. If there are heaven abodes on earth, Mt. Kailash & Mansarovar Lake is to be treasured as the most celestial. Its flames give birth to four great Asian rivers the Indus, Bramaputra, Ganges and Sutlej.

"As the dews are drying up the morning sun light, so are the sins of human beings cleanses up by the sight of the Himalayas, where lord Shiva lived and where the Ganga falls from the foot of Vishnu like the slender thread of a lotus flower. There are no mountain like the Himalayas, for in them are Holy Mt. Kailash and lake Manasarovar."  We take you to the most fascinating Kora (Circumambulation) of Kailash on foot, crossing the high pass Dolma La 5636 m. (18600 ft.) above sea level. So as you trek around Mt. Kailash you enjoy the grand views on both sides of the valley and Mt. Kailash from all directions.  We also take you for the parikrama (circumambulation) of Manasarovar Lake by jeep and visit some of the Gompas and holy site on the shore of the lake.

It is indeed a rare opportunity and privilege for all devotees who have been dreaming to be close to the home of the Gods in this world.
