Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

9. Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

A surreal phenomenon. A majestic epiphany. A staggering revelation- Mount Kailash is not a destination, it’s a journey- Kailash Mansarovar Yatra beyond all form of human imagination that takes you to an elevation of 21,788 feet, and changes your life forever. Conquering formidable peaks, walking along arduous terrains, a sense of isolation envelopes you on more instances than one during this expedition. Overcoming this emotional upheaval while being constantly challenged physically, you return home a winner beaming with invincibility. An evolution so palpable, the story of this metamorphosis is going to be the stuff of bestsellers. The abode of Lord Shiva for Hindus, home of Buddha Demchok according to Buddhists, the spiritual seat of power per Bon followers, and the place where Rishabhadeva, the creator of Jain religion attained Nirvana- Mount Kailash is a hero of mythological legends and an ultimate spiritual destination. While thousands of pilgrims attempt this cathartic journey, only the ones truly driven are able to complete it successfully. And if you are reading about it so intently, we are in no doubt about your superlative motivation. The first step to this two-part life altering experience begins at Kathmandu where we offer prayers at Pashupatinath and Budhanilkanth Temples to seek strength for the next 13 days. The prime reason that drives people to take this demanding sojourn is the Lake Manasarovar Parikrama in which you circumambulate around the mountain to wash away all your sins. This place is also known to be the gateway to Nirvana or Moksha. Deem 70% of this ritual complete once you reach the highest glacial lake near Mount Kailash, Lake Manasarovar. The remaining 30 ends with the trek. While on the trek, you cross some of the most stunning landscapes, serene mountain towns, unique mountain terrains, and high passes. A thrilling yet gruelling ordeal, your climb to an important milestone of the route - the Derapukh, is worth every ounce of energy spent on the hike. The breathtaking view of the first rays of the sun touching the peak, Mount Kailash painted gold, often called the “Golden Kailash” will concretise your faith in it being called God’s very own. Fierce winds, harsh weather, testing situations- you will have a million reasons to give up. But no one said reaching God is going to be easy. The courage to keep going is deep within your heart and call it transcendental, but to every impediment on the way lies a solution that appears in front of you just when you think you have hit dead end. Nothing better than what Sadhguru said, to sum up the trek to this spiritual realm, “If you can really be with Kailash even for a few moments, life will never again be the same for you. It is a phenomenon beyond all human imagination.”
