Trip Overview of Kailash Manasarovar Trek
Kailash Mansarovar Trek, situated along the border between Nepal and Tibet, the autonomous province of neighboring China, is one of the beautiful lakes alongside the Tibetan border and has attracted a lot of attention amongst the tourists because of its exotic location and pure natural beauty. It is situated around 940 kilometers far from Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. Kailash Mansarovar Trek is one of the most popular pilgrimage tours for the Buddhist as well as the Hindu followers. The location of the Lake might be a cause of hindrance for the adventure and nature lovers as there is no easy access to reach the revered Mansarovar Lake. However, it is a relatively easier trek and does not require much physical strength to accomplish the Kailash Mansarovar Trek. The months from June to September are the best ones for the trek to Mount Kailash.
Kailash Mansarovar, a holy pilgrimage destination, is mesmerizing in its beauty mostly because of the beauty of the calm and bluish looking lake. The location of the Mansarovar Lake, in between the mountains, and on a considerable height from the sea level is one of the major attractions of the trek. According to the Hindu mythology, Kailash Mansarovar used to be the abode (place for staying) of Hindu Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati. The beauty of Mansarovar Lake is quite mystique and unique, drawing hundreds and thousands of both domestic and international tourists to the vicinity of the lake.
Kailash Mansarovar Trek is also effective from the spiritual point of view as well as the tourists and trekkers will have plenty of private time to ponder and think about themselves, their life and draw pleasure from the calm nature and the surroundings of the lake. The lake stretches over the large massif of the Tibetan plateau and is located at an altitude of around 14950 feet above the sea level.
