Tibet Kailash Mansarobar Trek

Trip Facts

Trip Introduction

According to Hinduism, Lord Shiva Resides on top of Mount Kailash, where he sits in a state of meditation along with his wife Parvati, the Daughter of Himalaya. The Kailash Parvat is believed to be the ultimate destination of souls and the spiritual center of the world. Like Mount Kailash, Lake Mansarovar is the abode of purity. It is a place of pilgrimage, attracting Hindus from all over the world. Taking a bath in Mansarovar and drinking its water is believed to cleanse all sins committed over a hundred lifetimes.

Those who have visited the holy spots of Lake Mansarovar and Kailash Parvat carry with them a memory of a lifetime which remind them of the presence of Lord Shiva in their lives and gives them a feeling of peace and tranquility. The pristine beauty and serenity of these religious sites is truly awe inspiring and instills in people the feeling of being one with Shiva.

Hindus who walk around the 32 mile circumference of Mount Kailash use the term Parikrama. Tibetans refer to the clockwise circumambulation as a Kora. Both words mean the same thing: pilgrimage. The parikrama of Kailash Parvat is an essential part of your overall journey to Mount Kailash. Trekking through this long path is difficult and physically taxing. However, with proper preparation devout pilgrims are able to complete this Parikrama.
