A trek Tour to Mount Kailash offers a unique travel experience along with spectacular landscapes, incredible culture and faithful pilgrims. The highlights of Kailash tours are sacred Mount Kailash and Manasarovar Lake, both are the most remote and legendary travel destinations in the world. Kailash Tour is really a challening trip due to a rough road, long journey, simple accommodations. Mount Kailash known to be the abode of Lord Shiva is one of the world’s most sacred holy places. A peak in the Kailash range, Mount Kailash is a part of the trans-himalaya in Tibet. Due to its high altitude and remote location in western Tibet, only a few thousand pilgrims are able to do the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra every year.
Kailash Tour is also called Kailash Mansarovar Yatra represents doing a parikrama of Mount Kailash and taking a holy dip in the Mansarovar Lake. These are said to relieve pilgrims of any sins and bringing salvation to them. The people between the age of 18 and 70 in a group can participate in Kailash yatra. A difficult trek to Mount Kailash to circumambulate Kailash. This walking around in clockwise or anti-clockwise direction is known as Kailash Parikrama. For those who cannot do it on foot since it usually takes 3 days. There is an option of hiring a yak or a horse back riding.
Mount Kailash is a sacred place of Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bon. As per the Hindu belief, Lord Shiva, along with his wife Parvati, resides at the peak of Mount Kailash in a state of meditation. According to Jains, Kailash is the place where the first Jain Tirthankara attained Nirvana. In Buddhism, the belief goes that Kailash Parvat is where the Buddha, representing supreme bliss, resides. The Bon, a religion which predates Buddhism in Tibet believe that the entire region is the seat of all spiritual power. Mansarovar is one of the holiest lakes in Asia and also an important part of the yatra. The lake is also believed to change colours. While it is clear blue near the shores, it changes to an emerald green colour towards the centre. The lake looks absolutely stunning in moonlight.
Besides Mount Kailash and Lake Mansoravar, the other attractions of Kailash yatra are Tirthapuri, an interesting place pilgrims visit post the yatra where they bathe in spring pools, Gauri Kund also known as the Lake of Compassion, Yam Dwar–the initial point from where the parikrama starts, Asthapad–the bottom of the sacred mountain and Tarboche–the flagpole with numerous prayer flags, a very important part of Tibetan spirituality.
April to mid-October is the best time of year tour to Mount Kailash as the weather is warmest and however it’s still cold at the high altitude. In April and October, expect snow and ice on parts of the trail. In July, August, and early September, rain is likely.The snow could be encountered on the Drolma-la pass at any time of year. The temperature will often drop well below freezing at night even during the summer months. While some die-hard travels may try to do the Kailash Kora when the passes are covered by snow, I won’t suggest it. A great time to meet the pilgrims at Kailash Kora is from June to September, during the Hindu pilgrims season.
