Himalayan Experience trek

11 days Kailash Manasarovar lake:

The holy sacred spiritual mountain is called Khang Rimpoche as local Tibetan, Kailash as Hindu religion, which is 6,714m. high above sea level, situated in west Tibet. As local Buddhist religions believe, the eastern face of Kailash is Crystal, the western ruby, Northern gold and the Southern face is Sapphire. Which is the Holy mountain for Buddhist, Hindu, Bon and Jain religions.

The rocky path around Kailash is 52 km. During the trip the most difficult part is Dolma la pass 5,630m. because of high elevation and dry thin air. Local pilgrims walk around the Kailash rocky path in a single day, about a 14 hours journey. But you can do it slowly in three days to complete the journey around Kailash. Some people may get high altitude sickness. If someone has difficulty walking, they can ride a yak or a pony to complete the journey.

Manasarover is a Holy lake in Kailash region. As Hindu Sanskrit word ‘Manas’ means mind and ‘Sarovar’ means lake. The local Tibetan is called Tso Ma-pham. The sacred Holy lake situated 4,590m. path around the lake 88km. 90 meter deep. Once there were eight Buddhist monasteries around the lake, symbolizing the wheel of life. Most of the monasteries have disappeared, still you can visit Gotsuk, Seralung, Trugo and Chiu Gompa (monasteries) around the lake. A small spring flows from Mansarovar to Rakshas Tal which is called Gang Ga. At the same place there is a natural hot spring, you have to pay a certain amount for a hot shower or bath.
