Mansavar Lake Mt. Kailash Parikrama Yamasthal Shiva-sthal Parvati-stal

Overview

The Hindus all over the world hold the Kailash Tour in high esteem. They believe Mt. Kailash as the home of Lord Shiva and look upon it as the center of the universe. The Buddhists also seem upon this mountain in the same way. This mountain is located in Tibet. Therefore, another name of the Kailash Tour is the Tibet Kailash Tour. This tour is also known as Pilgrimage Tour. Tibetans call Mt. Kailash as Kang Rimpoche, while the Jains call it Mt Ashtapada. And the followers of the Bon-Po religion of Tibet, revere Mt. Kailash as the soul of Tibet. According to Hindu Religion, Shiva, the dominant deity, who resides in Mt. Kailash, is the creator as well as the destroyer. Since Mt. Kailash is his home, the Hindus look upon this mountain with the highest respect. These are the reasons, why nobody is allowed to climb Mt. Kailash.

Kailash Tour not only takes you near the sacred mountain but also near the caves, temples, and shrine. It also takes you to the place where you see rare species of birds, wildlife, and flora.

Kailash Tour tops the list when it comes to visiting sacred destination of Tibet. Not only Mt. Kailash is holy, but also the region near it. This region includes two lakes, and they are Mansarovar and Rakshesa. Backed by the blue water of these lakes, Mt. Kailash looks beautiful.

When there is moonlight, the Manasarovar Lake looks equally beautiful. In this lake, Hindus take a ritual bath to remove their sins.

The itinerary of the Kailash Tour that you follow also has a single Parikrama. In this Parikrama, you will cover a distance of 18 km, and by doing so, you will remove your sin, which is what the Buddhists think.
