Kailash Manasarovar – 11 Nights/12 Days

According to Hindus Mythology, Lord Shiva spends his most of his time on the top of the holy Mount Kailash, practicing Yogic austerities, joy, and love with his divine consort Parbati (Mother of Mythology). The Lake Mansarovar and the holy Mount Kailash are the souls of all AUM followers in the world. Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt. Kailash wipes out the sins of a lifetime, and 108 Parikramas guarantee enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Mansarovar Lake delivers pilgrims to Brahma’s paradise and a drop drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundreds of lifetimes.
