Kailash Mansarover

Kailash Mansarover - 865 Km from Delhi, stand Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar constituting one of the grandest of the Himalayan beauty spots. Mt. Kailash is the revered Mansarovar Lake, the eastern lake of two in the region. At an altitude of 14,950 ft above sea level, Mansarovar is the highest body of fresh water in the world. It is a remarkably beautiful site, with waters that glisten a clear blue near the shores and a deep emerald green in the center.

The perpetual snow-clad peak of holy Kailas of hoary antiquity and celebrity, the spotless design of nature's art, of most bewitching and overpowering beauty, has a vibration of the supreme order from the spiritual point of view. It seems to stand as an immediate revelation of the Almighty in concrete form, which makes man bend his knees and lower his head in reverence. Its gorgeous silvery summit, resplendent with the luster of spiritual aura, pierces into a heavenly height of 6690 meters (22028 feet) above the level of the sea. Hindus believe the lake was created by Lord Brahma, the God of creation. Legend states that Lord Brahma's sons, who were holy men, spent twelve years performing austerities on the land at Mansarovar.

But as they lacked a sufficient site to perform their rites, they appealed to their divine Father for help. In response, Lord Brahma created the sacred lake. Additionally, according to traditional belief there is a giant jambu tree that grows at the lake's center. This tree's fruit is believed to relieve all human ailments-both mental and physical.

At sunset the whole of the Kailash range on the north becomes a fiery region all of a sudden, throwing an observer into a trance, and by the time he returns to consciousness he sees only the Silvery Peak in front.

The weather is always uncertain. One moment you have scorching Sun, the next moment it begins to hail and snow and shortly after having a nap and coming out of your camp, you will see a clear blue sky and bright Sun above and a bed of pearl-like hail and white snow on the ground.

Travel Tips - You can travel to Tibet/Mt. Kailash - Mansarover from April to September but mid July to the end of September is the best period. There may be some intermittent rain, more so during this period with July - August being the wettest. These rains do not really hamper the overall journey. Temperature in Lhasa.
