Mount Kailash Manasarovar Trek is a 15-day long package that takes you into the 53 km long Kailash circuit. Mount Kailash Manasarovar Trek takes you to the journey of Mount Kailash which is the supremely sacred site for four religions- Hindu, Buddhist, Bon, and Jain and billions of followers of those religions.
Mount Kailash (6714m) receives only a few thousand visitors each year due to its remote location. The weather in Mount Kailash remains pretty adverse throughout the year and the rugged road makes its access tough. Mount Kailash is believed to be the physical embodiment of the mythical Mount Meru. Mount Kailash is revered by Hindus as the ‘navel of the world’ while Manasarovar which is located near Mount Kailash is taken as the soul of Brahma.
It is believed that a single ‘parikrama’ (rotation) of Mount Kailash will cast away all the sins you committed in this lifetime while a total set of 108 rotations around Mount Kailash will bestow you with salvation.
Manasarovar is yet another religiously and naturally significant site of Kailash Manasarovar Trek. The term “Manasarovar” is composed of Sanskrit words ‘Manas’ and ‘Sarovar’. ‘Manas’ means mind and ‘Sarovar’ means lake. Manasarovar Lake which nestles amid majestic Gurla Mandata is located at 4510 meters of height on the Tibetan plateau. There is strong Hindu faith that the ritual bath in this lake will let them enter the home of Lord Brahma.
