Kailash and Muktinath Extension (16 Days)
According to the Hindus Mythology, Lord Shiva spend his most of the time on the top of the holy Mount Kailas, practicing Yoga austerities, joy and love with his divine consort Parbati (Mother of Mythology). The Lake Mansarovar and the holy Mount Kailas are the SOUL of all AUM followers in the world.
“Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt. Kailas wipes out the sins of a lifetime, 108 Parikramas guarantees enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Mansarovar Lake will deliver a pilgrim to Brahma’s paradise and a drop drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundred lifetimes.”
Muktinath – The valley of Salvation

Hindus call it Mukthi Kshetra (The Salvation Valley) while Buddhists call it Valley of Chumming Gyatsa (in Tibetan language it means the place of 108 waterspouts) and believe that Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) the founder of Tibetan Buddhism meditated here on his way to Tibet.
