In Hinduism, Mount Kailash is regarded as the celestial residence of Lord Shiva, where he and his Himalayan daughter Parvati are said to be permanently seated in meditation. It is thought that Kailash Parvat, a sacred mountain, is the world's spiritual center and the ultimate destination for the soul. Situated close to Mount Kailash, Lake Mansarovar is highly esteemed as a source of holiness and a well-known destination that draws Hindu pilgrims from all over the world who participate in the Kailash Yatra.

1: Where is Kailash Mansarovar??
The most revered peak in Asia, Mount Kailash, is situated in Tibet's far west. At a height of 6,638 meters (21,778 feet), Mount Kailash is a high mountain in the Kailash Range that is known to the Tibetans as Kangrinboqué. The trans-Himalayan Kailash Range is located in China's Ngari prefecture, which is part of the Tibet Autonomous Region. Mount Kailash is situated close to the sources of some of the longest Asian rivers, including the Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Ghaghara (also called Karnali), as well as Lake Mansarovar and Lake Rakshastal. Mansarovar, the higher of the two stunning lakes, stands at 4,590 meters (15,059 feet) and is regarded as the world's highest freshwater body.
2: Why Mt Kailash is Unclimbed ??
Owing to its immense religious significance, Mount Kailash has never been scaled. For Buddhists, Jains, Bons, and Hindus alike, the mountain is revered. The mountain is thought to be Lord Shiva's residence in Hindu mythology. Because of the severe weather that prevented any of the previous attempts to reach the top from beginning when they set foot on the peak, none of them were successful. In the mid-1980s, the Chinese government extended an invitation to Italian alpinist Reinhold Messner to ascend Mount Kailash; however, Messner turned down the offer following international outcry from other mountaineers. After receiving the letter, the Chinese government outlawed any more efforts at climbing. Though not much is known, it is thought that the only person to reach.
3: Is Mt Kailash Mansarovar Yatra difficult??
The short response to this query is indeed! The trek is extremely difficult and demanding, particularly because of the altitude and the thin, dry air that is 40% less oxygenated than at sea level. Altitude sickness is quite likely to occur under these circumstances. Pilgrims must travel through dangerous, high-altitude regions during the Yatra. The Kailash tour is quite challenging because to the extremely steep slopes and the large distances that must be traveled each day between camps. It wouldn't be an issue if you regularly exercise, have high altitude trekking experience, and are in excellent condition.
4: What is the best way to go to the Mt Kailash Mansarovar ??
There are three main routes to the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra that go from Nepal. The first way goes via Simikot, which crosses the Tibetan border at Hilsa either helicopter or foot. From Hilsa, one can go overland to Mansarovar. Another option is to take a plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, and then go by car, either from Lhasa proper or from Ngari. There is also a land route that starts in Kathmandu and travels all the way to Darchen, which is at the base of Mount Kailash, via the Kyirong border. Compared to the other routes, this one is somewhat more cost-effective and rather adventurous. The best route for most travelers to Kailash Mansarovar is to go overland from Lhasa to Kailash after taking a quick flight from
5: Which is the best time to visit Mt. Kailash Mansarovar????
You can visit Kailash Mansarovar at any time between mid-April and the end of September every year. But without a question, April through June and September are the finest times to plan a trip to Mount Kailash since they provide excellent mountain visibility, breathtaking scenery, and pleasant weather. The monsoon months of July and August bring light rain and fog on occasion. The winter season, which runs from November to March, brings with it significant snowfall and ice, making it almost impossible to traverse some parts of the trail.
6: Why people reach Kailash at full moon ???
First off, on a night with a full moon, Mt. Kailash appears wonderful. It is said that a person can become a new human soul with the same body by taking a holy bath in Lake Mansarovar on a full moon night, washing away all of their sins from the previous 100 incarnations as well as the current. The most optimistic and lively cosmic energies are radiated by the full moon, according to the old Vedic astrology. In order to experience the pure spiritual energy that emanates from Kailash and Mansarovar Lake's natural surrounds, many attempt to travel to Kailash during full moons.
7:How many days dose it takes for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra????
The length of time needed to complete the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra varies based on where your tour begins. There are three distinct routes from Kathmandu, so the path you take will depend on where you are starting and finishing. Generally, traveling overland or by plane to Lhasa and then driving to Mount Kailash takes nine to fifteen days. On the other hand, the trip will take about 20 days if you choose to take the Simikot route out of Kathmandu and finish the tour in Lhasa.
8: Where do I need to Apply for Chines Visa go to the Kailash Mansarovar Trip??
To enter Tibet, any foreign visitor must have a current China visa as well as a Tibet travel permit. Travelers from Nepal who wish to visit Tibet should apply for a group tourist visa at the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu. When you reserve your trip to Kailash Mansarovar with Himalayan Glacier, we will arrange for your Tibet travel permit and Chinese visa.
9: What kind of Accommodation can we expect in Nepal and Tibet??
You will stay in luxurious 4-star hotels in Nepal that offer individual services and the majority of the amenities right in the room. During the trekking portions of a Simikot trip, you will be accommodated in pretty simple teahouses or, if you choose to camp overnight, tents. You will be lodging in hotels with attached bathrooms and western standards while traveling through Kyirong. In Mansarovar, Dirapuk, and Zutulpuk, standard communal dorms are what to anticipate.
