Kailash manasrovar stands highly in a remote south-west spot of Tibet, miraculously symmetrical 22,028 foot striated pyramid with a diagonal gash on one of its faces.
It has been describe as 'compel, dome-shaped peak, rising above a desolately beautiful 13,000 ft. plateau of rainbow-colored rocks'. Kailash Manas is called the Precious Mountain in Tibet. It is believed that poet-yogi, Milarepa (11th C,) was the only person to have set foot on its peak, and he achieve the feat by flying there.
"9-storey Swarika" because on the south face of Kailash can be seen a swastika. The 6,714 metre peak is believed to be the real home of Lord Shiva, for Hindu people it is also the highest blessing to take darshan of the mountain -to be in its presence; to be seen by and to see it.
This peak is the worldly appearance of Mt. Sumeru or Meru, as it is also known. Sumeru is thought to be the axis of the universe.
The trip to Kailash is significant pilgrimage for millions of Hindus & Buddhists, in addition to Jains and also to Bonpos. It is thought that one circuit of the holy Mt. Kailash (54 km/32-mile) is sufficient to wipe out all the sins of your lifetime. Wiping out all the sins of your lifetimes is a much bigger task; that major sin clean-up requires 108 revolutions. Bathing in the icy sapphire waters of Lake Manasarovar at the mountain's base is said to remove the sins of innumerable lifetimes.
While we focus of this tour is Mount Kailash in Tibet, the trip through Nepal’s border with Tibet at Zhangmu, Saga and Paryang to Darchen is ethnically and scenically rewarding.
Lhasa known as the highest cities in the world and capital city of Tibet is above 3,760 meters located in the banks of the Lhasa River. The magnificent city of Lhasa is now a combine of traditional Tibetan culture and modern cyber civilization.
Highlights : Potala Palace, Jokhong Monastery, Sera Monastery, Drepung Temple, Norbulinka Palace.
