Kailash with Mansovar Lake
Kailash with Mansovar Lake

The 13-day Lake Manasarovar tours are within the Tibetan region, in the far southwest of Tibet and the northwest of Nepal. The high Himalayan mountains border the area to the south of Tibet and the north of Nepal.

Mt. Kailash is a separate peak aloof from other great Himalaya ranges at 6,714 m (22,028 ft) above sea level. It is a striking-looking mountain with four impressive cardinal faces. Mt. Kailash, where four of each side’s directions resemble the east as crystal, the west as ruby, and the south as sapphire, with the north face as gold.

Mt.Kailash Tour and Lake Mansarovar are on a vast Tibetan plain, listed as the world’s largest and highest plateau. Also, tableland, where the average altitude is above 4,000 m, is a big concern for altitude gain.

To recover from high-altitude sickness, the symptoms of thin air can be acclimatized by taking things slowly, with overnight stops at certain heights.

The 13-day Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar tour starts from Kathmandu (some can join at Saga town after visiting Lhasa in Tibet), heading north close to Mt. Langtang range, Mt. Manaslu, and Mt. Ganesh Himal at Rasuwagadhi, the frontier of Nepal, to enter Tibet.

The journey takes you past Saga and Paryang towns through many farm villages. You then cross the high pass of Mayam-La (5,050 m) to reach the vast and holy Manasrover, with views of Kailash in the north and the Gurla-Mandata Mountains in the south.

After a great spiritual moment at Manasarovar Lake, a short drive takes you to a busy town at Darchen. It is located south of Mt. Kailash; the place is flooded with pilgrims during the high season of the Saga Dawa festival, with Indians, native Tibetans, and some foreign visitors.

Then, downhill to Machu Valley towards the east of Kailash, past Zutul-Phuk, go to the southern end of Mt. Kailash, complete the sacred circuit, and then drive back to the border at Kyirong to enter Nepal.

Boundless Adventure sent you a jeep or bus to Kathmandu via the Karung border. Reaching Kathmandu with memories of a glorious journey on Mt. Kailash and the Lake Manasarovar Tour is a genuinely spiritual trip and an adventure to experience once in your lifetime.

About Rakshal tal

Rakshastal is a brackish lake in China’s Tibetan Autonomous region. It is west of Mansarovar Lake and south of Mount Kailash. The Lake is 4,575 m/ 15,010 ft above sea level and covers an area of 250 square km (97 sq mi). The Sutlej River ( also named Langqen Zangbo) flows northwest of Rakshastal.

The name of the lake means “Lake of the Demon.” The lake is also called Rakshal Tal, and there is a belief that the demon of Lanka, Ravan, has done severe penance on the lake. The Tibetan people named the lake Lagngar Cho or Lhanag Tso, meaning “the dark lake of poison.” Furthermore, due to the flora and fauna around the lake, its lifeless surroundings led Tibetans to call it the “ghost lake.” Visitors are said to be respectful while visiting the areas to avoid unfortunate accidents.

Rakshastal consists of four islands: Topzerma, Dola, Lachato (Nadzhado), and Dosarba. During the winter, the area’s locals use the island as a yak pasture. Travelers who go for the Parikrama of Mount Kailash should pass through Rakshastal.

Despite the name and mythological associations, Rakshastal is a pleasant and calm lake that adds to the spiritual charm of the holy area around Mount Kailash. Both tourists and pilgrims who go for spiritual experiences at Mount Kailash visit the lake and appreciate the area’s natural beauty.

About the Visa for the Kailash tour

At the start of the tour, you’ll find more comfortable rooms with an attached bathroom, while as you get closer to your destination, the accommodations are basic, with simple rooms and shared bathrooms. The facilities in the upper areas are fewer due to the lack of well-established regions, so you should be ready to stay with basic facilities and a simple way of living.

Staying in a local guesthouse during the Mount Kailash tour provides a unique chance to experience the residents’ regional culture and hospitality fully. It also allows you to interact and learn about the region’s unique culture. Furthermore, you can interact with fellow travelers and grab the opportunity to make new friends on the journey.

The tour is mostly by travel or any means of transportation, so it is relatively easy. The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is an adventurous journey due to its high altitude and rugged terrain. Hence, there is a risk of acute mountain sickness during the tour.

The artificial pyramid shape, never-melting snow cap, the unclimbable mountain of Kailash, very little wildlife in the Kailash area, Swastika and Pravat symbols during sunset on Mount Kailash, and Lord Shiva’s face on Mount Kailash are the significant mysteries of Mount Kailash.

The Mansarovar Kailash yatra generally takes 12 days to complete. However, the duration varies depending on your chosen itinerary, whether you choose to trek or tour, the specific route chosen, the acclimatization schedule, and any extra activities involved during the visit.

Yes, pilgrims and visitors can bathe in Mansarovar, and people consider bathing there auspicious. Devotees believe bathing in Mansarovar purifies the soul, an essential part of visiting Mount Kailash. Since ancient times, Rishis and Munis have taken baths here.

Buses are the most common means of ground transportation for the Mansarovar Yatra. Jeeps are also available, but buses are more common. The tour combines traveling and hiking at specific points. An aircraft facility is also available for the Kailash tour.

You can complete the Parikrama of Mount Kailash within a single day. You’ll get a horse ride at the first stage for Parikrama to Rakshas Tal. You can then start hiking for Parikhrama. One day is good enough for your Mount Kailash Parikrama.

Your accommodations will usually be at the hotel. Several guest houses are available at the stopping point along the journey to Mount Kailash. The hotel provides a shared room with a shared bathroom and basic facilities.

Self-discovery Mount Kailash tour

As a devotee of Lord Shiva, I came to Nepal to visit Pashupatinath Temple. Then, one friend offered me a Mount Kailash tour, and he was about to go with his three other friends. For the devotees of Lord Shiva, a chance to visit Mount Kailash is like a blessing.

I was informed that Boundless Adventure in Kathmandu is handling our arrangements for Mount Kailash. As we were in a group of 46, we got the tour package at a reasonable price with a discount. The tour was indeed amazing. Besides the tour, the management for our tour was top-notch.

The tour of Mount Kailash was a journey of self-discovery and spiritual renewal. I am grateful to Boundless Adventure for providing us with an unforgettable tour experience on Mount Kailash. Also, I thank my friend Syam for offering me a tour.

experience on the Kailash tour

No matter how much I thank Boundless Adventure, it will be less for the incredible experience they provided me and my family on the Mount Kailash tour. Their professionalism and passion for satisfying their clients differ from those of other companies.

Our family’s experience on the Kailash tour was nothing short of astonishing. The spiritual profoundness, along with the expert guidance of the guide, made our journey even better. Walking around the Manasarovar between Mt. Kailash and Mt. Gurla Mandhata was like a spiritual journey. The magnificent beauty of the sacred mountain and its peaceful surroundings were admirable.

We had high expectations for the tour, and Boundless Adventure gladly exceeded them. My family and I are satisfied with their service and also recommend the agency to others.
