Situated in the south-western part of Tibet bordering the Kumaon hills and Nepal, is Mount Kailash. It is supremely sacred mountain, cosmology connected with Mount Meru, the great mythological mountain that forms the axis of this world system. Being a central watershed of Asia, it has always been the most sacred of mountains for Hindus, Buddhists,

Jains and Bons. Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt. Kailash wipes out the sins of a lifetime, 108 parikramas guarantees enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Manasa Sarovar Lake will deliver a pilgrim to Brahma’s paradise and a drop drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundred lifetimes.

This region is steeped in religion and mythology and every year hundreds of pilgrims traverse some of the remotest and toughest regions of the Himalayas to pay their obeisance to the Lord. It is a land where Lord Shiva lives with his consort Parvati. According to ancient religious texts, the abode of creator Brahma is called Brahmaloka, the abode of Lord Vishnu is called Vaikunta and the abode of Lord Shiva is called Kailash. Of the three, one can only go bodily and return in this life from Kailash having experienced divinity.

Hindus believe that Goddess Parvati has taken the form of the Manasa Sarovar Lake and that deliverance is assured for people taking a bath in Manasa Sarovar. It is believed that Gods come to bathe every morning in this lake between 3 to 5 am and this time is called 'Brahmamuhurta'. The word Manasa Sarovar is derived from the Sanskrit word 'Manas' which means mind and legend has it that Lord Brahma created this lake from his mind.

We at SHRI HANSAA TRAVELS offer overland journey to Kailash and Manasa Sarovar from Kathmandu. The entire tour and trek (parikrama) around Mt. Kailash is fully supported with camping equipments and services of Sherpa team. It is indeed a rare opportunity and privilege for all devotees who have been dreaming to be close to the home of Mahadeva or who are simply in search of magic of nature!!
