Kailash Mansarovar Yatra Over Land - Introduction

kmy-intro
Holy Mount Kailash Mansarovar
Religious voyages are mainly undertaken by individuals with the hope to clean their souls and wash away the sins they have committed in the past. Besides, some pilgrims undertake religious journey every year so as to open their mind and to attain salvation. Kailash Mansarover Yatra is the religious voyage that is undertaken every year by thousands of pilgrims from across the globe. Pilgrimage to Mt Kailash is an old tradition dates back to thousands of years and still this pilgrimage is undertaken every year by thousand of pilgrims to continue the tradition. Pilgrims of diverse religions undertake the religious journey to Mt Kailash and they have a believe that the holy circumambulation around Mt Kailash on foot is holy ritual and will bring good fortune in their next generations and help them to attain salvation. However, pilgrims of different religions have their own way of circumambulation. The pilgrims belonging to Hindu and Buddhist religion undertake circumambulation in clockwise direction, whereas the Jain and Bonpo pilgrims undertake circumambulation in counter-clockwise direction. The terrain for circumambulation is about 38Km in length and the terrain is quite dangerous and rough. All pilgrims need to complete the circumambulation around Mt Kailash on foot.

According to some devoted pilgrims the circumambulation need to be completed in a single day, but sometime it becomes quite difficult to complete it in a single day. It completely depends on the health and the fitness of the pilgrim and how fast they can walk. If you are fit enough and can walk at a constant speed continuously, then you can complete the circumambulation in 15 hours. The devoted pilgrims successfully complete the circumambulation around Mt Kailash without bothering about the uneven and rough terrain and harsh conditions. These pilgrims were extremely devout and complete the holy circumambulation without getting daunted by altitude sickness. Some of the other pilgrims are so devoted for this religious journey that they perform some demanding regime during the circumambulation like doing body length prostrations till the circumambulation is completed. In the process they bend down on their knees and then prostrate full length making a mark with their fingers, after that they rise again to their knees and pray and again crawl forward till the mark made by fingers and repeat the same process till the circumambulation is completed. To complete circumambulation in this way you will require around four days. Mt Kailash is situated in the remote and inhospitable areas of Himalayan range in Tibet. Therefore, you will hardly find modern amenities in this area, refreshment kiosks and resting places are offered around Mt Kailash.

Many religious Gurus have stated that stepping on the slope is the greatest sin that mankind can commit just because of the sacredness of the mountain setting. Besides, a legend has also claimed that anyone who will challenge this and try to climb the mountain will definitely die in the process. This is the reason why this is the only mountain in the Himalayan range that is still remained unexplored. The religious journey to Mt Kailash got disturbed between 1959 and 1980 because of the Chinese army invade Tibet and entered in 1950. Due to this reason the number of pilgrims has also reduced during this period. But, today only limited numbers of pilgrims are allowed to visit Mt Kailash. Indain pilgrims who want to visit Mt Kailash will be kept under strict supervision of Chinese and Indian governments. They take care of the lengthy official procedures of the pilgrims. It is very difficult and hazardous to travel to Mt Kailash. The pilgrims need to reach Tibet via Kathmandu Lhasa by flight and then on car or foot they need to reach Mt Kailash.

You may either take horse or trek on foot around Mt Kailash and the entire journey takes around three days. The trek will start at the height of 15,000 feet and via Domla Pass at 19,000 feet you will complete the trek and you will camp for two nights on your journey.
