Mount Kailash Mansarovar Trip

15 days

Mansarovar Lake is very beautiful with the holiest lake in the Tibet. The Hindus believe that to plunge into the freezing cold waters of the Lake Manasarovar and walk around its perimeter is to erase a whole lifetime of sins. Tibetans believe that they can negate their wrongdoings purely through walking. The people have some mysterious believe (theory) of the Mansarovar Lake. Tibetans people, to the Mansarovar lake they call •Victorious is the holiest in the land, believed to be where the gods washed Buddha! It is also assumed to be the place where queen Maya was brought to before giving birth to Lord Buddha.

Note: There used to be Overland Tour to Kailash and Mansarobar from the Tatopani Border between Nepal and Tibet however after the earth quake in Nepal on the 25th Apr, 2015, the Border has been closed however another border between Nepal and Tibet which is Kerung Border has been opened and we have started our Overland tour to Kailash from this border.

 

According to the Hindus religion, Brahma created the lake for his sons to bathe in while they medicated on Mt. Kailash. Whether Indian pilgrims, Tibetan pilgrim or western tourist, one can see Lake Mansarovar,holy beginning manifested in its incredible beauty. It circled by mountain peaks and filled with clear, bright-blue waters that look just a breath away from the sky. The Mansarovar Lake was once surrounded by eight monasteries, which indicated the eight points of the wheel of Dharma, but red guards destroyed most of them during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet. Restoration is in the works. The above the mysterious saying could be very strange for someone who doesn’t believe those statements but the religious people they believe that are why so many people want to be there once their lifetime.
