Every year there are thousands of religious pilgrims and travelers descending on Mt. Kailash to make the ritualistic trek around its base. Tibet Travel Expert Service (TTES, https://www.tibettravelexpert.com) discusses what’s in store for travelers who make the trip.
The Kailash Manasarovar pilgrimage brings thousands to Tibet each year; so far, this year has been no exception! Religious pilgrims and travelers alike descend on the holy Mt. Kailash, making the ritualistic trek around its base to purify their souls and take in dramatic Tibetan landscapes. For Hindus, Tibetan Buddhists, Jain, and Bon this is a sacred place; Kailash is to people of these faiths as Jerusalem is to Christians and Jews. Regardless of faith, all travelers are welcome on this special journey of natural beauty and cultural discovery!
Local Tibet travel agency (https://www.tibettravelexpert.com) has been taking travelers on professionally guided Kailash tours for over ten years. According to TTES a visit to Mt. Kailash provides an excellent opportunity to encounter people of all faiths and learn about the significance of the holy mountain from the Tibetan perspective. Along the way to and from Kailash, travel group’s native Tibetan guide will introduce them to Tibetan culture and history as they visit places like Potala Palace, Tashilhunpo Monastery, and Lake Manasarovar.
Travelers won’t need to worry about bringing things like tents, sleeping, bags and cooking equipment; on the trekking portion of the tour TTES provides all necessary equipment and arranges for a yak to carry it all! The Tibet trek takes about three days to complete. Tibetans leave behind a lock of hair or stone to symbolize leaving behind their anger, fear, and prejudice. Travelers may do the same. However, please don’t leave behind anything that may harm the fragile environment!
The unique blend of opportunities to enjoy dramatic landscapes and encounter people of a variety of cultural backgrounds is the draw for the thousands of travelers who come to Kailash every year. Tibet Travel Expert Service employs native Tibetan guides who are passionate about sharing where they come from, helping travelers gain the most authentic perspective possible.
