Kailash Mansarovar Tour

Trip Overview

Mt. Kailash-Manasarovar is one of the holiest of naturalshrines for the Hindus, Buddhist, Jains and the indigenous Tibetan Bonpos in the Himalayas. Mount Kailash is situated in the south- western part of Tibet, and lapping at its foothills are the turquoise blue, calm waters of Lake Manasarovar. Considered a home of the Gods, it is said, if you stand on your toes here, you can touch the sky.

At 6714m Mt. Kailash, also known as Tise, Kailasa and Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows), has since time immemorial been celebrated in many Eastern cosmologies as Mt. Meru, the axis mundi. And as the center of the physical and metaphysical universe, Mt. Meru is sacred to the Buddhist, Jains, the Hindus and the Bonpos. For the Buddhists, the mountain represents a terrestrial projection of the cosmic mandala of Dhyani-Buddhas and Bodhisattvas - The Wheel of Life. For the Bonpos, Kailash was the sacred nine storey Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Sherab alighted from heaven. Kailaskhand, as the region is known, is also the source of four great rivers flowing into the subcontinent - Indus, Brahmaputra, Karnali and Sutlej.

It is a Hindu belief that Kailas is the throne of Lord Shiva. Here he sits in perpetual meditation with his consort Parvati, daughter of Himalaya. This is the holy place where Lord Shiva recited the Ramayana to Parvati. For Hindus, Mount Kailas and the Manasarovar are considered to be the ultimate pilgrimage destinations. It is said that a ritual bath in the sacred Manasarovar will relinquish the sins of a hundred lifetimes.

According to the Tibetan calendar, the year of the WATER HORSE is very special period to visit Mt. Kailash and comes once in a 12-year cycle. There will be pilgrims flocking into Kailash from every corner of the Buddhist world to pay homage and undertake holy circumambulation of this holiest of the mountains especially on the Baisakh full moon day.
