Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake are one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Bon religions. The lake and the mountain is the source of three important rivers - the Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Indus which has a significant role in the life of people around it. Local Tibetan people consider Lake Mansarovar as their holy mother as she provides and support the livelihood for locals where as Lord Shiva, who has his residence on Mt. Kailash and the slayer of evil is considered as the father.
For Hindus, it is believed that Lord Shiva dwelt at the pinnacle of Mount Kailash, practicing yogic austerities. So for Hindus is a holy practice to encircling around this sacred mountain. The Mt. Kailash Parikrama or Kora is almost 52-kilometer circuit that requires almost 3 days to complete. Hindus and Buddhists perform this Parikrama in a clockwise way, while Bons and Jains undertake it counter-clockwise.
Here to note that the toughest part of this Kora or Parikrama is passing Dolma-La Pass, which is at an elevation of 19,500ft and is the highest point of this entire Yatra. Here weather is very unpredictable and can change at any moment. Here air is very thin and oxygen concentration is almost 50%. So breathing problem is inevitable. From this pass the northern east of the Mount Kailash is visible. In Tibetan language Dolma-La means Goddess Parvati - the holy wife of Lord Shiva. The pass can be very dangerous to overcome unless weather favors pilgrims. Throughout the year, the entire pass gets carpeted under snow and decorated with innumerable Tibetan prayer flags. Pilgrims and tourists make holy offerings of dry fruits, prayer flags, blood, and even strands of hair in the hopes that Yamraja will accept them and allow pilgrims or Yatries to pass the strictures of Dolma-La Pass. Gauri Kund and Parvati-sthal can be found along the way.
On a full moon night the auspicious pilgrim site Mt. Kailash, standing in high spirits at 22,000 feet is just magnificent. On a full moon night it looks spectacular. In fact nothing can be compared to the splendor of the Lake on a full moon night. It is believed that a dip in holy Lake Mansarovar during the full moon help to wash away every sins. It is believed that on a full moon night, pilgrims or Yatries can truly sense the spiritual powers of the area as they go around the lake. One Kailash Manasarovar Parikrama or Kora can wash away the sins of seven previous lifes, and 108 Parikramas can attain Nirvana or Moksha.
There is a believe by the locals that on a full moon night on Mount Kailash Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva come alive but this auspicious and beautiful phenomenon only can be feel and observed by a person with a pure heart.

As the sunny morning illuminate the city of Kathmandu, let's start the holy Kailash Manasarovar Yatra while proceeding towards Syabrubesi (alt. - 2380 m) with the rest of the group post breakfast. The road towards Syabrubersi is quite congested with moderate to heavy traffic and bad road condition leading to fatigue after 8 hours of the constant drive to cover the distance of 148 Km.

Yes, finally the wait is over, and today is an important day as the drive will be towards Lake Manasarovar (alt. - 4590 m) but the start will be early morning and tiring as the car will pass through several check post before reaching the destination.
The drive will be through the scenic road car covered with mesmerizing landscapes with a stop to get the first darshan of Mt. Kailash and capture its beauty in the lenses before making the stopover at the basic guest house near Lake Manasarovar. Overnight stay at Lake Manasarovar guesthouse.

The journey of 12 Km follows the nature trail outlined with crystalline river and ravishing landscapes apart from the spectacular North Side view of Mt. Kailash (alt. – 6638 m) on the right side.
Mt. Kailash, the holiest place on the Earth, is believed to be the center or navel of the world, with six mountains ringed around this spectacular black stone, making it impossible to climb with Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati residing there.

Kailash in the front giving the motivation to complete this trek. Pilgrims can touch the feet of Mt. Kailash at Charan Sparsh, but this visit is not a part of this tour package and depends upon the guest on consultation with the tour guide with direct payment.
After starting the day with the blessing from the holy peak of Mt. Kailash, let's move towards the longest and the toughest trek of 22km from Dirapuk to Zuthulpukh (alt. – 4790 m) via Gauri Kund.
While passing through this 22 Km long stretch, pilgrims will encounter the highest point of this trek at Dolma La Pass (alt. - 5630 m), and on the way some sites show footprints of Milarepa, the Buddhist Saint Poet, and Shiva Tsal, where people leave behind an item of cloth, drop of blood or lock of hair to represent the act of leaving behind this life. After the steep climb towards Dolma- La Pass (alt. – 5630 m) is the Gauri Kund at steep down, which needs to cross at the earliest before the strong wind takes over.
At a height of 5608 m, this awestruck round-shaped blue-colored Kund facing the Southside of Mt. Kailash is one such beauty to experience before continuing on the bumpy road, to make the final stop at the lodge or tent at Zuthulphuk Gompa (alt. -4790m). Overnight stay at Zuthulphuk.
Important Note :

After an early breakfast, visit the nearby caves and shrines where the soft-spoken Tibetans serve and maintain the temples build around this small place.
On return, the gradual trek of 6 Km will lead to the nearest point where the car will wait to take back to Darchen (alt. - 4575m).

After spending a few days close to God and away from the daily humdrum, it's time to start afresh with a rejuvenating soul, free from past sins and thereby moving towards Kathmandu (alt. - 1400m) post early morning breakfast.

It was my first trip to Nepal and my first experience with NatureWings as well. I have to say it was a great Nepal Package Tour organized by NatureWings. Every aspect of the Nepal Trip was very much well organized by NatureWings. I visited Monkey temple (Swayambhunath Stupa) of Kathmandu, Pasupatinath, three Darbar squares, which were prime historical places of Nepal. I loved the peach of Pokhara city, Fewa Lake was breathtaking. The mountains, sunrise, waterfalls, people, and their smiley faces I never forget. The hotel selection by the agency was very much choice able. We liked the hotel in Pokhra, Fishtail lodge was stunning property, overlooking the Mount Annapurna snow peak from their courtyard. Every day a person from the travel agency was in touch with me for any travel-related issues. The guide was a knowledgeable and friendly person. He is ready to carry my bags every time. Nepal is safe to travel - go for a visit. In the end, we must say our Nepal tour was a memorable and relaxing one.
A few months ago, we finished our Nepal Tour Package. But still, we are cherishing the sweet memory of our Nepal Trip. The Tour company named NATUREWINGS has a sound knowledge of the heritage of the country. They well designed and organized our tour beyond our expectations, but within our budget, the specialist from their office was so helpful in discussing which place to go and see. Kathmandu is a heritage country itself still unspoiled and so many things to do, tell, watch, and explore. They have provided good 3-star hotels in every place, but we liked the hotel in Chitwan very much. Nepal is a unique country where the sky, mountains, and beauty merge. It has been an unforgettable experience, also thanks to my tour guide arranged by the agency, a young talent that has made my trip special. Finally, thanks to NatureWings for organizing such a perfectly planned flawless Nepal Tour.
Recently we completed our dream Trip to Nepal with NatureWings. Myself, with my four friends, completed our trip in 8 days. The accommodations arranged by NatureWings for our Nepal Package were really superb and perfectly organized as per their commitment. The driver provided to accompany us for the trip was a very gentle and kind-hearted person. He showed us the breathtaking beauty of the region and several World Heritage Sites. The Special attraction of our trip was availing Everest flight or the Mountain Flight service from Kathmandu. We have witnessed an unforgettable experience and a breathtaking view of Mount Everest from the mountain flight. It was truly once in a lifetime experience. We have also enjoyed the Paragliding facility in Sarangkot. The experience of the trip was a memorable one, and we were highly satisfied with all the arrangements. It was a great memory to cherish. We are now looking forward to traveling with you again.
We have traveled to Nepal last November. We took the direct flight to Kathmandu from Mumbai by Royal Nepal Airlines for our Nepal Package Tour. On our arrival day, we just went to Casino in Yak and Yeti Hotel for an experience, and it was an exciting experience. Luckily, we won Nepali Rupees of 2500 on that day. The next day, our day started with Pashupatinath Temple Darshan and Puja, and then we proceed to see the Darbar Square and Bhaktapur Ancient City. On the second day of our Nepal Tour, our night stay was in Nagarkot, a small hilltop destination. We stayed in the Club Himalaya, which was simply superb, and offers breathtaking views of Himalayas. The next day we moved to Pokhra, the journey was quite tiring and took around 8 hours. We reached in the afternoon around 4 pm, and on the way, we had lunch in the Mungli Bazar. In Pokhra, we visited Phewa Lake and Peace Pagoda. These two places are the prime attraction of Pokhra, and no tourists should miss it. We then traveled back to Kathmandu by a small flight, and then we took the direct return flight to Mumbai. Everything was arranged perfectly by NatureWings, and I must thank Mr. Sandip Raha for arranging such a nice Nepal Trip.
We did a Nepal Tour Plan from Bengaluru last year in December, and it went perfectly fine. The hotels, sightseeing, car, and the driver were perfect as per the commitment by our agent, NatureWings. We took a 4 Star package with Kathmandu, Nagarkot and Pokhra. We were six family members who went together for this Nepal Tour, and we liked the way NatureWings handled this trip in a professional and friendly way. Our best resort was in Pokhra, Fishtail Lodge, which is located just in front of Phewa Lake, and from the resort, we can see the Mount Annapurna snow peaks. In Pokhra, we have also visited less known Bengas Lake, and we took the boat ride in the said lake. Overall, our experience in this Nepal Tour Package was a memorable one, and we’ll recommend NatureWings to our friends and families.
