Tibet and Mansarovar Lake
After proper acclimatization and witnessing Lhasa's wonder we take the rigorous overland driving, trekking and camping, through the remote and wild western Tibet to Mount Kailash. We can see the numbers of isolated villages, nomads' tents with flocks of sheep, domesticated mountain goats and yaks grazing at the vast field in our journey to Kailash tours. It is a journey into a remote and secluded land where one seems to leave behind one's material attachments as they travel and trek towards the holy lake and Mt. Kailash Kora.
Lake Mansarovar, an expanse of sparkling blue water sprawling over several miles, believed to be the seat of Brahma (the Creator of Universe) and the snow capped Mount Kailash is considered as the abode of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati. The entire Kailash kora trek is the holiest of all the Tibet's pilgrimage tour, an oasis of peace and serenity and the beacon that draws the many travelLers to the western Tibet every year. It is said that a single circumference erases the accumulated sins of a lifetime while 108 circumferences achieve the Salvation or Nirvana.
