A morning Yoga session will be conducted to learn special techniques of how to adjust to the high altitude during the pilgrimage. After breakfast, a guided tour will be conducted in and around Kathmandu to see the various holy sites - including Boudhanath and Jal Narayana Temple. After that, we will return to the hotel for lunch and rest.
In the evening, we will go to the famous Shiva Temple to witness the popular Aarati (evening fire ceremony), which is a spectacular sight during the evening. Overnight stay will be in 5 star hotel.
We will depart to Syabru Beshi early morning, carrying packed breakfast. It will be a mountain drive for 7 hours.
After Customs and Immigration formality, we will cross the Nepal border and reach Kerung after a nice 4 hours drive.
On this day we will do a routine hike for proper acclimatization and rest for the remaining time of the day.
This day we will drive for around 7 hours to reach Saga, an important town for all pilgrims. We will see some beautiful landscapes as we go along, in the Tibetan Himalayas.
After having breakfast at Saga, we depart for the holy lake Manasarovar. By late afternoon, we drive through the green pastures, sand dunes and gigantic valleys and come to see for the first time the blue water of Lake Manasarovar. We do a parikrama around the lake by driving. According to Hindu and Buddhist Cosmology, along this lake's shores flow the four great rivers of the Indian subcontinent - The Brahmaputra, Sutlej, the holy Ganges and Indus. You will get to see the amazing view of Mt. Guru Mandhata on this very day. The mountain is situated to the south and Mt. Kailash is situated to the north. Both are clearly visible from Lake Manasarovar on a sunny day.
In the morning, private bathing tents will be set up by the shores of lake Manasarovar for taking a holy bath with the waters of Manasarovar, which is performed by most pilgrims before the parikrama around the holy Mt. Kailash. After this, we will perform a fire ceremony with Havan beside lake Manasarovar. Then we head to the base camp of Kailash which is located in Darchen.
If possible and permitted, we will go on a hike to Astapad on this day.
We begin our hike around Kailash from Tarbuche / Yama Dwar area. As we go around our route, we witness the multiple stupas and the sky burial site of 84 Mahasiddhas. Our hike begins from Yama Dwar, the Gate of the God of Death and we henceforth start the Parikrama. We also witness the numerous waterfalls and view the colossal western face of Mt. Kailash. After approximately 6 hours of trek, we arrive at Diraphuk monastery where we will spend our night at a lodge of pilgrims. The North face of Mt. Kailash is visible from Diraphuk. We will take a short hike to view the north face of Kailash.
Although this is the hardest day of the trek, it is also the holiest. As we hike, we will cross the Shivasthali where there are stone collections draped with clothes which are given as offerings to God by Tibetan pilgrims. We hike further and reach the Dolma La Pass (5700m, 18700ft) which is the highest point in the yatra. From there, we will be able to view a magnificent sight of the Gaurikund from above. We will take a short break to put prayer flags at this point and proceed to reach Zhutul Phuk at a fairly lower altitude of 4820m. In Zhutul Phuk, there is a 'Cave of Miracles' where the greatest Tibetan Yogi Milarepa meditated and got the power to fly. We will have magnificent views of mountains, waterfalls, caves, etc on our way. Overnight stay will be in a guesthouse.
This will be our last day of the parikrama around Mt. Kailash. We will slowly descend to a point in an expansive valley from where the bus will pick us up. We will halt at Darchen where we will have lunch. After that, we head back to Saga where we will stay in a 4 star hotel.
