Trip Overview

Kailash Mansarovar’s tour can be arranged either by flying to Lhasa or an Overland trip to Kodari (Nepal-Tibet border) as per travelers’ wish and time. May, June, July, and August are the best months for Kailash Mansarovar. Holy Mansarovar Lake lies beyond the high Himalayas in the south-west of Tibet. The Yatra involves trekking at high altitudes of up to 19,500 feet, under extreme cold and rugged terrain. Pilgrims undertake the Yatra purely of their own volition, cost, risk, and consequences otherwise it offers superb Himalayan views of Holy Kailash, Mt. Everest, and Mt. Cho Oyu. According to Hindu epic, the four great rivers of the Indian sub-continent, the Indus, Ganga, Sutlej, and Brahmaputra arise from Mansarover but it is indeed the Sutlej that originates from the lake. Mansarover needs to be circulated by the Hindus at least once in his/her lifetime which has got its religious value, cultural significance, physical beauty, and thrilling nature. According to Hindu myth, the most sacred Mt. Kailash lying in Karakoram Range and Naga Parvat formed six million years ago
