a   Holly Mt. kailash Yatra
Mount Kailash, the holiest of all the holy mountains, the spiritual junction for both the Hindus and Buddhists, is situated in the western part of Tibet. The pilgrimage tour to Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar is a journey into a remote and secluded land where one seems to leave behind one's material attachments as they travel towards the holy lake. On this Kailash Mansarovar pilgrimage tours and treks, we take scenic drive onto the lush vegetation of conifer, rhododendron and oak trees via the semi deserted windswept landscape to the highest plateau in the world. You can see the numbers of isolated villages, nomads' tents with flocks of sheep, domesticated mountain goats and yaks grazing at the vast field. Lake Mansarovar, an expanse of sparkling blue water sprawling over several miles, believed to be the seat of Brahma (the Creator of Universe) and the snow capped Mount Kailash is considered as the abode of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati. The entire Kailash circuit trek is the holiest of all the Hindu's and Buddhist pilgrimages.

Guru Rinpoche (The great Indian Master PADMASAMBHAVA who introduce Buddhism) and Saint Milerapa are greatly revered here by pilgrim.
