The Sacred Significance of Mount Kailash and Mansarovar​

Mount Kailash, standing at 6,638 meters (21,778 feet), is more than just a majestic peak; it is a sacred site venerated by multiple religions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Bon. Hindus believe it to be the abode of Lord Shiva, Buddhists see it as the home of Demchok (Chakrasamvara), and Jains revere it as the site where their first Tirthankara attained liberation. Nearby, the serene waters of Lake Mansarovar are considered to have purifying properties, making the region a focal point for both pilgrimage and deep meditation.

The adventure begins in Kathmandu, Nepal's vibrant capital. Here, participants are welcomed by the experienced team from Himalayan Asia Treks and Expedition P Ltd, who ensure all preparations are meticulously handled.
