What is the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra?

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a test of physical resilience and a balm for the spirit, a chance to connect with the divine and the breathtaking beauty of the natural world. It is a pilgrimage journey to Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar, located in the Himalayas, which is considered a lifetime achievement for many devotees. Performing a circumambulation (Kora) around the mountain is believed to be a life-purifying act that purifies the sin and brings one closer to moksha, or liberation from the cycle of rebirth. 

It's religiously significant for followers of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and the Bon religion from different perspectives. In Hinduism, Mount Kailash is revered as the abode of Lord Shiva, the destroyer and regenerator god. Similarly, Mount Kailash represents Mount Meru, the cosmic centre of the universe, and Buddhists believe it's the residence of the Buddha Shakyamuni in his celestial form. For Jain followers, they consider Mount Kailash as Mount Ashtapad next to each other, where the first Jain tirthankara, Rishabhdev, attained moksha (liberation). Bon followers believe Mount Kailash to be the central axis of the world, a sacred and powerful place. While religious beliefs differ, the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is equally significant. 

Apart from its religious significance, the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra features a serene and dramatic landscape along the way to the main destination. The Himalayas provide a stunning backdrop for the entire yatra. Moreover, completing the trek itself is a significant accomplishment due to the high altitude and challenging terrain. It requires physical and mental resilience, offering a sense of personal achievement. Also, the local Tibetan people's hospitality and unique way of life add to the cultural richness of the experience.

    There are two main ways to get to Kailash Mansarovar from Nepal. They are overland via Gyirong border and by helicopter via Nepalgunj. 

    Overland via Gyirong border: This is a good option if you are looking for a more adventurous trip. The journey from Kathmandu to Kailash is 10 days and you will need to cross the border between Nepal and China at Gyirong Border. 

    The route by helicopter via Nepalgunj: It is the most expensive option, but it is also the fastest way to get to Kailash Mansarovar. The helicopter tour takes about 1 day from Simikot in Nepal to Hilsa in Tibet.
