The most sacred mountain is Mt. Kailash and sits just inside of the Tibetan border across from Nepal.It is an unusual shaped snow capped mountain, rising 6,714 meters into the incredibly blue Himalayan skies. It is said to be the home of Lord Shiva and the other gods of Hinduism. This place is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists, who consider a pilgrimage to this very mountain a place to be cleansed from sin in this world. The Chinese government only permits a limited number of visitors to come each year, and it is now possible to cross the border from Nepal into Tibet to do this sacred trek.
The trip takes Mount Kailash just 13 days, and will feature the pilgrimage walk around the mountain. Along the way is Lake Manasarovar where pilgrims take a bath in its sacred waters. Bathing here as well as drinking its sacred waters will deliver you from the sins of a hundred lifetimes. This trip can only be made during the summer monsoon season when temperatures are warmer. There is not a lot of rain in this area as we are far enough north of where the monsoons are heaviest. This sacred pilgrimage trek is a delight for people of any faith. Along the way you will meet devotees who have come from all over the world to partake of the pilgrimage as well as to take a dip in its sacred waters.
Nepal Planet Treks & Expedition is pleased to be one of the few companies that can offer this exciting and uplifting experience. The mountain itself is of incredible grandeur as you feel the very presence of the gods of Hinduism that look down upon you as you circumnavigate the sacred path of enlightenment and purity.
