Mount Kailash the physical embodiment of the mythical Mt Meru, said to be the centre of the universe or 'navel of the world' is situated at an altitude of 6714 meters above sea level and is regarded as one of the most sacred mountains in Asia. Mt. Kailash is holy to followers of many religions. To Hindus, Kailash is the abode of Shiva and nearby Mansarovar Lake is the soul of Brahma. For Tibetans it is Kailas Kang Rimpoche.

Followers of Jainism regard it as Mt Ashtapada, the peak from which the religion’s founder, Rishabanatha, achieved spiritual liberation

The 53 Km. Kailash circuit is the holist of all-Hindus as well as Buddhist pilgrimages and the beacon, which draws most travellers to western Tibet. It is said that a single Parikarma erases the accumulated sins of a lifetime, while 108 circulations will achieve Salvation.

Lake Mansarovar located at an elevation of 4510m, is more important to Hindus than to Buddhists. Hindu pilgrims make an 85kms circuit around Manasarovar that is made longer and more difficult by marshes and complicated stream crossings. Near Manasarovar is another large lake, Rakshas Tal, the ‘Demon Lake’ that holds far less spiritual significance.

Sprawling below Mount Kailash is the sacred lake Manasarovar (4510m), where ritual bath will deliver a pilgrim to Brahm's paradise and drink of its water relinquishes the sins of a hundred lifetimes.

Discover Yatra is assisting in this 12 Nights 13 days Kailash Mansarovar Yatra from Kathmandu. The pilgrimage package has been designed keeping in mind the requirements of pilgrims during the yatra with pure vegetarian meals etc. We can also assist you in travel to Kathmandu from your city.

General Instructions for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

  • Do not neglect to consume sufficient food and fluids. Do remember that yatris suffer from loss of appetite at high altitudes, so they should force themselves, if necessary, to consume enough nourishment.
  • Do not trek in one’s or two’s. Don’t get separated from the main group of trekking and ensure that the person in front remains in sight. Similarly, yatris walking ahead must ensure than no one is left behind alone or in ones or twos, specially if they are elderly, struggling to keep pace or likely to need help.
  • Do not carry too heavy a load. Hire porters and a pony too if you have the slightest doubt on your capacity to walk the distances required.
  • Avoid alcohol during the Yatra and especially at high altitudes, as this is dangerous and has serious consequences.
  • Avoid drinking water from the river. Instead use water from free flowing water falls. The porters will guide you to safe water sources. Each yatri should have water available at all the time during yatra.
  • The high altitude Tibetan terrain is dry, cold and windy. Diurnal variations are large. Nights are cold and windy. Heavy snow falls; torrential rains and strong icy winds are com­mon features - any time. Flooding rivers and landslides are frequent. The altitude averages above 3500 meters. The route covers much high altitude passes.
  • Take precautions for avoiding catching a cold. If you take off your cap or outer layer of clothing due to sweating as you walk, remember to cover yourself again at stops. It is better to be over-clothed than under protected. Enroute, avoid taking a bath or drinking very cold water from lakes, streams or rivers as your system is not conditioned for this. If you have to drink cold water, swirl each sip in your mouth before swallowing it.
  • Never rush into things. Walk slowly and firmly. Guard yourself from slipping or falling to prevent fractures, sprains and muscle pulls. The uneven ground, steep slopes and slushy banks are full of potholes. Do not combine walking and sight seeing together. Where the track is uneven, rocky or narrow, keep your eyes on the track in front and trek slowly. Listen to your guide or the one with experience. Walk in a Group and do not leave anyone behind alone, unless escorted.
  • Every yatri should ensure that he/she does not get separated from his/her fellow yatris. If there is a storm, yatris must stay close to each other and avoid being separated. They must trek in small groups.
  • The mountains must be treated with respect and attempts to ‘conquer’ mountains or showing off physical fitness should not be made. One must walk at a steady, rhythmic pace. Walking with a companion is a good safety measure against sudden sickness and accidents
