The Kailash Mansarovar tour is an abrasive test of will and endurance providing equally ethereal rewards. The most visited pilgrimage destination in far-west Tibet is mainly known for two things: circumambulating Mount Kailash, and taking a holy dip in Mansarovar Lake. The tour is undertaken by thousands of pilgrims every year and is renowned for its religious value, cultural significance, and entrancing natural beauty.
Standing tall and proud at 6714m, Mount Kailash is the most revered sacred mountain in Asia. It has its own mythological significance to the Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and Bons because of which scaling its summit is forbidden. Sprawling below Mount Kailash is the highest freshwater lake of Mansarovar (4510m). It is believed that taking a holy dip in the lake delivers the pilgrim to paradise, and a drink of its holy water relinquishes the sins of a hundred lifetimes. We start our tour from Kathmandu accompanied by the view of scenic Himalayas and cross the Kerung border to reach Tibet. Thereafter, we drive most of the time and trek somewhere in the middle of our journey, all the while experiencing enthralling and scenic valleys, passes, rivers, and mountains. Other attractions of the tour are Rakshastal- known to be the place of penance of the demon king Ravana, Tirthapuri – a place visited after circuiting the mountain where they bathe in spring pools, Gauri Kund – also known as the Lake of Compassion, Yam Dwar –the point from where the circuiting starts, Asthapad – the bottom of the mountain, and Tarboche – the flagpole with numerous prayer flags. March to May and October to mid-December is the best time for the tour.
