Mt. Kailash And Manasarovar Yatra

Mt. Kailash - Mansarovar 16 Days Tour

Mt. Kailash (6714 m) - one of the popular mountain peak of Tibet, which is also known by the name of Tise, Kailash or Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows) has since time immemorial been celebrated in many eastern cosmologies as Mt. Meru, the axis-mundi. Mt.Meru (Kailash) is sacred to the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Jains, & the Bonpos, taken as the center of the physical & metaphysical universe. For the Hindus, the mountain represents the seat of Shiva. For the Buddhists, a terrestrial projection of the cosmic mandala of Dyani Buddhas & Bodhisattvas....the Wheel of Life.

For the devout pilgrim a visit to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar forms the ultimate realization of their spiritual pursuit. And for the adventure-lovers it offers rugged beauty, remoteness and solitude. The May tour to Kailash during the annual gives the opportunity to face Buddhist festival of Saga Dawa while most of the other trips are planned to arrive at Mt. Kailash during the full moon period to give all participants a rare experience. A journey can truly called as `once-in-a-lifetime.'

The tour offers rigorous overland driving, trekking and camping, passing the remote and wild western Tibet, in altitudes between 2,745m/9,000ft and 4,880m / 16,000ft and hiking to a maximum of 5600m / 18,400ft.
