Kathmandu - Lhasa and Kailash Tour ( Full Moon in Mansarovar Lake)

Full moon night in Mansarovar Lake on 25 September 2018 (Purnima)

Lhasa, the capital of China’s autonomous region of Tibet is an artistic city lying at an altitude of 3650 meters from the sea level. Lhasa consists of unique houses the ancient Potala Palace, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery, Jokhang Temple and the Norbulunka. Some of its places have been designated as a world heritage site by UNESCO too. The fascinating culture and life style of the local people entice the travelers to explore it.

From Kathmandu, you will reach Lhasa on China Southwest Airlines after one hour flight across the snow capped Himalayas with mesmerizing views of the highest peak Mt. Everest and other summits. The immigrations and custom formalities at the Gonggar Airport will be handled by our experienced guide. After a two-hour drive to Lhasa crossing about 93 km you will be taken to a hotel for overnight stay.

It is preferred to spend our two following days in sightseeing of the beautiful city and Barkhor Bazaar as it will be easier to adapt with the temperature and altitudes of that place for us.

On the way, you'll get to view the beautiful settings of Tibetan Highlands and the Yarlung Tsangpo river valley travelling to Mount Kailash on the third day. On reaching the holy Kailash Parbat, you will be taken to visit the sacred Mansarovar Lake lying about 15 meters below the Kailash which is another important pilgrimage destination. The circumambulation of 53 km periphery of Kailash region is the ending of our pilgrimage. Then you will be driven back to Miteri Bridge (Friendship Bridge). From there you will be driven back to Kathmandu. This is how our tour will be over.

Kailash-The Mysterious Holy Peak; Mt. Kailash (6714m), which is considered to be the sacred abode of the gods and goddesses and the exact center of the entire universe by the people belonging to four different religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bonpo. It is believed to be the Soul of Universe which is responsible to protect the entire Universe as per ancient mythology.

For Hindus to make the arduous pilgrimage to Kailash Parvat and circumambulate the 53 km periphery is to get rid of all known and unknown sins ever committed in life. Hindus believe Mount Kailash to be the holy abode of Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati. Buddhist worship Kailash Parvat as the meditating spot of Lord Buddha and Jains believe that their first Saint obtain Liberation meditating at this region, thus though different religion people have different understanding about Mount Kailash, their ultimate faith is the dwelling of the superior power here. The mountain is also famous for its unique four-sheer like appearance like that of a handle of a millstone. The Buddhist symbol “Swastika” in its southern side added up the holiness of this Mountain.

Lake Manasarovar; 15 meters below the holy Kailash Parbat there is another pilgrimage destination, Mansarovar Lake. It is the most sacred Lake of Hindus. Mansarovar literally means 'the consciousness of mind' as per Sanskrit language. It is situated at an elevation of 4580 meters from the sea level. Mansarovar Lake is so gigantic that it takes at least three days to just go round its peripheries even for locals. It also holds an important religious space among the followers of Buddhism and Hinduism. According to Hindu mythology it is the bathing pond of Lord Shiva. Buddhist worship this lake as the source of enlightenment as lord Buddha is believed to have obtained enlightenment meditating at the shore of this Lake. One dip into the cold water of this holy Lake is believed, by Hindus, to relinquish the soul of all its sins thus carving a straight path to heaven after death. Ancient Hindu scriptures indicate this Lake as a must-visit place for those who want to attain Salvation. Many others also come to take a bath in the Lake with a belief that it will keep them youthful and strong forever.
