Kailash Manasarovar Yatra by West nepal

A sublime opportunity

Kailash and Manasarovar is considered the axis mundi of our cosmos according to Hindu, Buddhist, and Bon mythologies. Its the most sacred place where past yogis, saints devotees have ventured on their journeys to enlightenment, salvation since time immemorial.  But due to its remotes geopolitical situation, it was not always accessible and very few could make it to this sacred land.  Now, due to improved access, policies in the region,  pilgrimage to Kailash region is becoming more and more convenient and affordable. The availability of accommodation and transport in the region along with trained tour professionals is making the otherwise a tough journey a very convenient one.  This we believe is a rare opportunity.

About The Pilgrimage

In Hindu mythologies, Mt Kailash is considered the abode of L ord Shiva who resides on its peak in perpetual yogic practice, joy and love with his divine consort Parbati (Mother of Mythology). With the serene Lake Mansarovar in its front, the land possesses beauty beyond words and its divine presence attracts millions of faithful from around the world.

It is believed that a single circuit of Mt. Kailash wipes out the sins of a lifetime, and 108 guarantees enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Mansarovar Lake delivers pilgrim to Brahma's paradise and a drop drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundreds of lifetimes. Since time immemorial, pilgrims and yogis have travelled this land through arduous journeys. But with improved access in Nepal and Tibet, the route has become accessible for many.
