Mount Kailash Manasarovar Tour

Mount Kailash Manasarovar Tour

According to Hinduism, Lord Shiva Resides on top of Mount Kailash, where he sits in a state of meditation along with his wife Parvati, the Daughter of Himalaya. The Kailash Parvat is believed to be the ultimate destination of souls and the spiritual center of the world. Like Mount Kailash, Lake Mansarovar is the abode of purity. It is a place of pilgrimage, attracting Hindus from all over the world. Taking a bath in Mansarovar and drinking its water is believed to cleanse all sins committed over a hundred lifetimes. “Kailash – Eternally beautiful Lord of Mountains, where Umaji and Shivaji reside forever”…Tulsidasji

Those who have visited the holy spots of Lake Mansarovar and Kailash Parvat carry with them a memory of a lifetime which remind them of the presence of Lord Shiva in their lives and gives them a feeling of peace and tranquility. The pristine beauty and serenity of these religious sites is truly awe inspiring and instills in people the feeling of being one with Shiva.

Hindus who walk around the 32 mile circumference of Mount Kailash use the term Parikrama. Tibetans refer to the clockwise circumambulation as a Kora. Both words mean the same thing: pilgrimage. The parikrama of Kailash Parvat is an essential part of your overall journey to Mount Kailash. Trekking through this long path is difficult and physically taxing. However, with proper preparation devout pilgrims are able to complete this Parikrama.

We advise travel insurance to all travelers are interested of trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal is walking in the trail (path) of mountains. In mountain areas health treatment facilities are not standard. There are less available of good hospitals and doctors. So if in case the trekker suffers from severe sickness, he should bring to Kathmandu by helicopter for better treatment. And the helicopter charter fare is expensive in Nepal. If you have already travel insurance, your money will be saved.

When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. We Himalayan Smile Treks and Adventures Pvt. Ltd. shall have no liability for loss, theft of or damage to baggage or personal effects.

We also let you know that Nepalese Insurance Company does not have travel insurance policy for foreign nationals. They have this policy only for Nepalese citizens. So we advise you do your travel insurance with Insurance Company in your own place.
