A day to relax and acclimatize to the high altitude. It is important to stay hydrated (3/4 litres a day) and be extremely aware of one’s physical condition, which the staff will also monitor at all times. The group have the option of hiking which would definitely help pilgrims/trekkers get used to trek conditions for Kailash Parikrama.

 

Day 05 : Purang to Lake Mansarovar 4,582m. (FULL MOON DAY) 14

 

A beautiful drive through the dramatic valleys, the rivers and through the grazing lands of yaks and sheep. The landscape is filled with snowcapped peaks rising out of the distant sand dunes. Many Tibetan nomads and traders in their traditional dress inhibit this area. By late afternoon, the drive through the green pastures and massive valleys gives way to the first sighting of Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar from Chhesakhang. Walk through the small village of Sherlung and Thugu Gompa on the banks of the holy lake or drive all the way to the western bank for an overnight stay at Chui Gompa (monastery).

The staff will set up individual bath tents on the banks of Lake Mansarovar for the pilgrims before circumambulating Mount Kailash. A ritual bath at Mansarovar is considered to attain moksha and a drink of its water relinquishes the sins. After lunch, drive north towards Darchen, a village considered the base camp for Kailash. If pre-arranged, one can visit Rakshasi Lake, Asthaparbat, Nandi Parbat and Tirthapuri.

Drive to Sershong. First day of walking around Kailash begins at Tarbuche. Along the way, one passes numerous chortens (stupas), Chukku monastery, the burial site of the 84 mahasiddhas and wonderful views of cascading creeks, streaming waterfalls and the mighty west face of Kailash.

Long and challenging day of the parikrama. Cross Dolma-La pass 5,636m between two valleys, Yamastal and reach Shiva-sthal, where to symbolize death, pilgrims leave the old clothes, hair or drop of blood in hope that Yamarajan (God of death) will aceept these and allow the pilgrims to be born in spirit to pass Dolma-La. In Buddhism, the pass symbolizes with the goddess Container and in Hinduism to Parvati, wife of Shiva. On reaching the top, Shiva-stal, the offerings are placed and one can meditate. On the way down, one crosses Parvati-stal, Gauri Kunda and reaches Zuthulpuk (the cave of miracles, the great ascetic Milerappa is supposed to have performed miracles here) along the river.

A few domestic airlines offer mountain flight from Katdmandu to see Mt. Everest. This unique experience gives visitors a quick glance at Nepal's untamed landscapes and a fly-past tdrough tde world's tallest peak. The aircraft takes off and heads eastward and almost immediately tde peaks come into view. The first peak tdat appears on your horizon is tde majestic Gosaitdan, also called Shisha Pangma, standing at a height of 8,013m. To its right appears Dorje Lhakpa (6,966m), looking like a massive figure of eight lying prone and covered in snow. To its right is Phurbi Chyachu, which looms over tde Katdmandu valley.
