    Take a spiritual journey to the sacred Kailash Parvat and Lake Mansarovar


    Kailash Mansarovar Yatra Via Kerung is a sacred pilgrimage to the foot of Mount Kailash. The mountain is sacred for Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Bons. For Shiv bhakts this yatra is the ultimate journey in their lives as it takes them close to the abode of their beloved Lord Mahadev. For Jains Kailash Parvat is Mount Ashtapada, the place where their guru Rishabhadev attained moksha.


    Located in far western Tibet, Mount Kailash is also regarded as Mount Meru, the center of the universe, by Buddhists. It is the place where the Buddhist saint Milarepa meditated and defeated the Bon priest Naro Bon-Chung. For practitioners of the Bon religion, Kailash is the 'axis mundi' or the point connecting the earth to the heavens.


    Kailash Mansarovar Yatra begins in Kathmandu with a ‘darshan’ at the holy Pashupatinath Temple. You take a drive in a private vehicle from Kathmandu to the Nepal-China border. On entering Tibet you will meet your Tibetan guide and driver who will guide you to your destination.


    Drive past the Tibetan highland and reach Lake Mansarovar. The holy lake shimmers like a blue jewel surrounded by snow-capped peaks. After meditating and performing puja on the bank of the holy lake you proceed towards Darchen.


    You begin your Kailash Parikrama from Tarboche. It takes four days to walk around the sacred mountain. You can complete the parikrama on foot or hire a horse or pony to take you around the mountain. During the hike, you get a darshan of Kailash Parvat's four faces. The Charan Sparsh hike will bring you to the foot of the north face of Mount Kailash. Only the blessed and the lucky get to touch the foot of the holy mountain. It is indeed a divine experience and one can feel the strong spiritual energy as one walks close to the mountain.


    The last leg of the parikrama will lead you to a high mountain pass Dolma La, the highest point of your journey. Once your parikrama is complete you drive back to Saga and return to Kathmandu via the same route.


    The yatra involves long hours of overland travel and hiking at high altitudes, thus you need to be physically fit to undertake this journey. We recommend that you start preparing for your trip at least three months in advance. You can try strenuous cardio exercises like aerobics, jogging, swimming, and cycling, or less strenuous exercises like walking and climbing stairs.

    When Is The Best Time To Go?

    The best months to undertake the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra via Kerung are May, June, July, and September. The weather conditions remain favorable during these months to travel to Mount Kailash. Compared to other months, these months offer warm and pleasant conditions for hiking.

    But be mindful and take the necessary precautions as even during summer, temperatures may dip below zero. Remember Tibet lies in a high altitude zone. Keep yourself hydrated to keep away altitude sickness and don't over exert yourself physically.

    You can expect rainfall and snow during the parikrama. Carry your raincoat or umbrella and cover your bag with a waterproof cover.

    Is This The Right Trip For You?

    • Long hours of overland drive across the Tibetan plateau
    • You will be journeying across Tibet, known as the Roof of the World where altitudes rise above 5000 meters
    • Parikrama involves walking on a flat trail covered with dirt and gravel with few steep ascents. As you reach the final point of your parikrama you may have to walk on snow and ice.
    • The longest and the most challenging day is Day 10. You will walk for 9-10 hours and cross the Dolma La Pass the highest point of your journey at 5,630 meters.

    • There is less oxygen in the atmosphere which will result in breathlessness and headache. The path is rugged and gravely and is not recommended for those with weak lungs, heart, and joint pain.
    • We advise you to get a full medical check-up and advice from your physician before booking this Kailash Mansarovar Yatra via Kerung package.
