Overview

Holy Mt. Kailash Mansarovar Yatra – A journey to heaven…

Join our 14 days Kathmandu – Lhasa – Kailash – Kerung / Naylam – Kathmandu tour and take advantage of our experience and expertise to enjoy the ultimate pilgrimage yatra to Kailash Mansarovar.
We have been taking 1000’s of people from, UK, USA, India, Australia and around the world to Kailash Mansarovar for the last 20 years with love and care.

Kailash Mansarovar is such a holy land that the Skanda Purana (Hindu Ritual Text Book)  wrote below quote on 6th Century BC … “As the dew is dried up by the morning Sun so are the sins of human beings by the sight of Himalaya, Holy Mt. Kailash” – Skanda Purana (Hindu Ritual Text Book) – 6th Century BC

A pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and a bath in the Mansarovar is believed to bring about salvation (Moksha) and washed away all the sins of life.

The Lord  Shiva’s mountain Kailash appears majestic with the surrounding of many smaller cliffs resembling the attendant divines of the Lord like Lotus bud or a crown, which looks like a natural pyramid.

Kailash is one of the most popular Hindu pilgrimage sites in the Himalayan region dedicated to Lord Shiva and Braham’s lake Mansarovar. Mount Kailash, believed to have formed 30 million years ago when the Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most revered places in the Himalayas.

Lake Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash are two of the holiest pilgrimage areas to devotees of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Bonism and many other faiths. Each year thousands of devotees undertake a journey of a lifetime through the mountains and plains of Nepal and China (Tibet) to reach this sacred land.

Mt. Kailash is situated to the north of the Himalaya in Tibet, a perfect mountain with incredible beauty, with four great different faces. It is the spiritual center for four major religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion – Bonpo. For the Hindus, Mount Kailash is the earthly manifestation of Mt. Meru, their spiritual center of the universe, described as a fantastic ‘world pillar’ 84,000 miles high, around which all else revolves, its roots in the lowest hell and its summit kissing the heavens.

On the top live their most revered God, Shiva (Paramashiva, Kailashapati, MahaRudra), and his consort Parvati. For the Jains, an Indian religious group, Kailash is the site where their first prophet achieved enlightenment. For the older, more ancient religion of Bon, it is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven.

Spread out on the Tibetan plateau beside Mount Kailash is the giant lake of shifting colors – Lake Mansarovar. Brahma, the creator, had a mind (Man) for the creation of a lake (Sarovar), hence its name Mansarovar.

Over the centuries pilgrims have journeyed continuously immense distances to achieve enlightenment or cleanse themselves of sin, braving enormous distances, unusually harsh weather and bandit attacks. People have been visiting Kailash – Mansarovar for centuries. It used to be an arduous journey in the past; today we (Earthbound Expeditions) can bring you there with the help of land cruisers via Kathmandu. So it is a lot easy to reach to heaven now!

Our 14 days Kailash Mansarovar Yatra adventure begins with the drive across the Himalaya west into Tibet to Holy Lake Mansarovar. Here you will join the throngs of pilgrims who, for centuries, have converged on this remote southwestern corner of Tibet to circumambulate the sacred mountain, considered to be the center of the universe by Hindus and Buddhist alike. Kailash enjoys great popularity the folk religion of Tibet – it is the soul of the country and assures protection for all Tibetans.

The fountainhead of four great Asian rivers (Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali), few mountains reveals Kailash for its mystique, isolation, and prominence, for three days you will walk with pilgrims around this almost perfectly symmetrical peak before the trek back into Nepal.

Your trek/tour pioneered by Earthbound Expeditions takes you into northern riches of the country where only a few trekkers have walked these trials, unchanged over the ages. The encounter with the herders, pilgrims and the local people will be lively and make for precious memory. It is an experience of a lifetime!

If you wish to add Everest base camp Tibet in your itinerray that will add 2 more days in the above itinerary. If you wish to include  Charan sparsa – close up view of Mt. Kailash   ( also considered as part of Inner Kailash Parikrama) need to add 1 more days for the whole trip. Please contact us for customized Kailash Mansarovar itinerary and cost.

Take advantage of our knowledge and expertise as Earthbound Expeditions have been taking people to Kailash Mansarovar safely last 20 years. Everyone claims they do operate Kailash Mansarovar tour but many of them are booking agents only, they take some commission and hand over groups to local agents.

There is a saying that “Everyone dances but some person dance better”, everyone signs but some singers are better. Similarly, everyone runs tours but we run and manage it better.

Our business is more passion-driven than profit-driven, another good reason to travel with us is we work in field of social cause, we have built 153 classrooms after Earthquake, have build many schools and libraries, run some health camps kindly see the link – https://enepaltrekking.com/csr/our-business-is-more-passion-driven-than-profit/ so you have helped an organization that have corporate social responsibilities.

Earthbound Expeditions is recommended by lonely planet, Trip Advisor, Newyork Times, the Guardian and many other national and international newspapers and magazines for our good services. The leader and co-owner of the company Mr. Rajan have successfully lead the trip to Kailash Mansarovar over 18 times and all the strong supporting team we have are trained and professionals with many years experience in the Himalayan expeditions.

We just returned from Manasa Sarovar and Mount Kailash trip to the US. The trip would not have been so successful without the loving care of Rajanji and his (Nine Jewels ) team. Narayanji the chief chef is better than the best. The hot food he server was nothing short of divine. We cannot forget Ram and his magic potion, the little secret of our health. All we can say is Annadatha Sukhi Bhava. The team monitored our health and oxygen levels and gave such revitalizing head massages that any fatigue and pain vanished in minutes. Arjunji's mother like and tender attention was a major factor in 100% success of the trip. God knows when they would sleep and wake up and prepare hot food for us. Amrith, Gopal, Deepak, Ram, Sherpa, Arjun, and others watched our every step and made sure that every one of us was safe and doing good while hiking. Hats off to all of you sir. You gave us the best of service and have helped us have a lifetime experience and memories. Rajanji, a spiritual seeker and author of wonderful spiritual books, who shared his wisdom whenever opportunities arose. Traveling with him and discussing spiritual aspects during this journey was like the icing on the cake. The entire journey was a great learning and humbling experience. Given the time I would not hesitate to go on each and every trip The Earthbound Expeditions would offer. I would highly recommend Rajanji's services and his Earthbound Expeditions team to all of my friends and family anytime.

We recently completed this tour and trekking expedition in September 2019 with Mr Rajan Simkhada and his team from Earthbound Expeditions. We were a group of 27 people and I have to say that this team surpassed all our expectations. Looking back, we couldn't have asked for a better tour company for this mentally and physically challenging trekking expedition. Mr. Rajan and his team were very accommodating to individual group member’s need and went above and beyond to cater to our comfort and convenience. They were flexible, personable and very attentive to the minutest and the biggest details of our travel. A bright smile on their faces and cheerful dispositions kept our spirits high all the time, but specially during the arduous ‘parikrama’ days. Food was amazingly delicious and was cooked fresh daily by Chef Narayan and his helpers. Crew members RAMJI, SHERPA TERKI and GOKUL made sure that each person ate well and we were all well hydrated. Highlight of the day used to be head and neck massage by ARJUN every evening while checking our Oxygen levels. I am looking forward to doing future trips with Mr Rajan and his team @ Earthbound Expeditions!! Thank you so much you all for this wonderful experience and your commitment to giving your customers the best experience!!!
