Kailash Fixed Departure

Mount KailashThe most holy and mystical mountain in the Himalayas, Mt. Kailash has been a holy site to the adherents of Hindu, Bon, Buddhist and the Jain religion for centuries. Geographically situated in the middle of six mountain ranges symbolizing the Lotus, Mt. Kailash is said to be the eternal adobe of Lord Shiva, the God of all Gods in Hinduism; the place where the first Jain Tirtahnkara, Rishabhadeva attained liberation from rebirth, the navel of the universe and home of Buddha Demchok who represents supreme bliss in Buddhism; and the place of all spiritual power in the Bon religion.

The four major rivers of the Indian subcontinent, Indus, Brahmaputra, Karnali and Sutlej, along whose banks the earliest civilizations arose in the Indus valley thousands of years ago originate from Lake Mansarowar in Mt. Kailash, the highest fresh water lake in the world. So, it is no wonder that Mt. Kailash, Lake Mansarowar and its sister lake Rakshastal has been the holiest pilgrimage site for the inhabitants of the region whose waters still sustain much of the Indian subcontinent.

The circumambulation of Mt. Kailash and the water of Lake Mansarowar is believed to wash away all sins of the pilgrims and devotees have endured this long and arduous pilgrimage for thousands of years. Due to the terrain and the abrupt rise in altitude, the penance for the pilgrimage considered one of the hardest is also one of the greatest path to salvation.

Though today the route is much short and safe due to modern conveniences, it has not lost its spirituality and the mystical inner peace experienced by those who tread the paths followed by ancients in search of the same spirituality. The 14 nights 15 days Mount Kailash Mansarowar Yatra (tour) conducted by us at Touch Kailash is to help devotees keep their vow and make the pilgrimage run as smoothly as possible with our expert team of experienced local guides and impeccable logistics.

The snow capped Mt. Kailash that towers over the other mountain ranges, the deep blue water of Lake Mansarowar and Lake Rakshastal clear, enough to see the bottom of the lake, the monasteries along the lake which look as if carved right out of the cliffs has a mysterious and mystical magnetism that has made generations of humanity come and pay homage to the mountains that has sustained them spiritually and physically. The route is one of the most spiritual and out of the tours and trails run by us at TouchKailash, we would highly recommend this spiritual walk to all devotees and travelers of the world.

We can also do camping trip using Tents instead of guest houses and Mud houses. Mt. Kailash tour and trek can also be done combining trek in Humla region of Nepal. It includes 7 days trek in westerner part of Nepal from Simikot to Hilsa. Or still one can fly to Hilsa and reach Mansarovar in two days from Nepal. We can also fly to Lhasa head to Holy Manasarovar and Mt. Kailash and drive back to Kathmandu.
