We traveled through various Tibetan cities to the holy Mansarover Lake and, eventually, to the sacred Mt. Kailash. The most exciting travel to holy Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar from Lhasa is regarded to be the most sacred, comfortable, delightful, and unforgettable.
The sacred Kailash Mansarovar Yatra from Lhasa takes pilgrims over the Tibetan Plateau to the revered lakes of Mansarovar, also known as Brahma’s Lake, and Mount Kailash, a towering sacred mountain. The term “Color Shifting Lake” also refers to Lake Mansarovar. In addition to Lake Mansarovar, there are two more lakes close to Mount Kailash: Lake Rakshastal to the west and Lake Gauri Kund to the north.
The best time to set off on this journey is between May and October when the warmth of nature is at its most enticing. Look up at Mt. Kailash, a sacred peak rising 6656 meters above sea level with a pyramid-like structure formed by its symmetrical sides. Here, several religions come together to pay tribute to this magnificent peak, which is revered not just as a mountain but also as the center of existence. These religions include Jainism, Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, and Bon (the indigenous religion of Tibet).
Come join us on this 14-day trip to Kailash Mansarovar via Lhasa. You will witness Mount Kailash and the surrounding natural scenery as you travel to its remote. After you arrive at Lhasa, we will have plenty of time to explore and educate ourselves on Tibetan culture in Lhasa. We proceed from there to Lake Manasarovar and Mount Kailash. You truly will never forget this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
