Kailash-Mansarovar Pilgrimage(14 Days)


The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is one of the holiest  pilgrimages for   people   following four   different religions — Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bon. Hindus believe Mt Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva. It is one of the toughest pilgrimages in the world as pilgrims have to negotiate high passes and endure life in high altitudes of the Himalayas. It is one of   the most-do pilgrimages for Hindus. They take a holy dip in the sacred Mansarovar Lake and circumambulate the difficult trails around Mt Kailash for the holy Parikrama or Kora as the Buddhists say. It is believed that taking a holy dip in Mansarovar washes away one’s sins of past 100 lives. The pilgrimage is generally undertaken between June and August as weather at this time is generally good.
