ABODE OF LORD SHIVA
KAILASH & MANASA SAROVARA YATRA – 10 DAYS
The Mt. Kailash and lake Mansarovar are the holiest of the several Tirtha Sthans in the Himalayas and lies in the western part ofTibet (China). A great mass of black rock soring to over 22,000 feet (6714 neter), Mt. Kailash has the unique distinction of being the world’s most venerated holy place. It is the supremely sacred site for many religious and billions of people.
Hindus believe Mt. Kailash to be the abode of Lord Shiva. Accourding to legend, immortal Shiva lives at the top of Mt. Kailash where he spends his time practicing yogic austerities and making joyous love with his divine consort, parvati. For Hindus, to make the arduous pilgrimage to Kailash and have a Darshan(divine visit)of Shiva’s abode is to attain release from the clutches of ignorance and delusion. It is divinely said that one circuit of the sacred Mt. Kailash (54 km / 32-mile) is enough to wipe out all the sins of lifetime.

Casual wears and comfortable walking shoes are the rule of Tibet. Be sure to bring warm clothing as nights and early mornings can be quite chilly to cold. Indian Pilgrims are advised strictly not to wear Sari during this yatra. Bring all the film, medicine, cosmetics, personal toilet items etc. that you will need from home as these are difficult if not impossible to obtain on the way. A small first aid kit is also a good idea. Also quite useful is a route map, to know where you are going and have been each day.
Winter wear: Gore-Tex material, though expensive, is highly recommended. Down jacket, raincoat or windbreakers, thermal under wears, Jackets, warm trousers & woolen shirts (cotton will also do), warm sweaters, woolen gloves, sun hat, comfortable shoes, light leather boots in case of snow, woolen balaclava (‘monkey cap’) & scarf/dust mask to protect your eyes & nose from dust.

This is one of the toughest high altitude road journeys on eart. You Must be physically fit – no two ways about that. Generally patients with asthma & heart problems have a problem acclimatizing to high altitudes. In your interests it is essential you should be examined by your doctor to know about your health condition and your ability to cope up with the rigors of high altitude travel for days in ‘no road’ conditions, extreme cold, dust, trekking to an altitude of 19500ft during the parikrama, etc.
As you traveling over high terrain, you are likely to experience symptoms and discomfort of altitude sickness (headache, loss of appetite, nausea, exhaustion, sleeplessness, breathlessness etc.) until you body adjusts to the elevation. This can take a couple of days or more depending on an individual. For this reason alone, we have made it mandatory to stay 2 nights at Mansarovar (4550M) moving on to the higher altitudes.
Drink plenty of water, be calm, and do not exercise. Do not drink alcohol or smoke prior to and during the tour. We also recommend you carry a strip of Diamox tablets. We provide Gamow bag (a special equipment to prevent sickness from high altitude) on this tour.
The unit of Chinese currency is Yuan. USD 1=6.8 Yuan= INR 10.6 approx. (as of September 2018). Money can be exchanged at Kathmandu, Nepalgunj or from the locals at Purang. Exchange all your remaining Yuan at theend of the trip at Purang before re-entering Nepal.
