The tour to the holy land of Mt. Kailash happens once in our lifetime, so we take proper care of our clients with all possible resources.

In Hindu mythology, it is believed that one attains nirvana (liberation) after taking the Kailash Yatra.

In the Tibetan language, the word Kailash defines as “mountain of god”. Every year thousands of pilgrims take this spiritual journey to catch the glimpse of enigmatic Mt. Kailash. It is located in the westernmost part of the Tibetan plateau. As it is remotely located, therefore, the pilgrims face adverse situations while making Kailash Yatra. We, Nepal Tourism Package aim in providing the best service facility to our esteemed customers. Our Kailash Yatra is designed to make these tourists avail the best spiritual tour. The devotees across religions believe Mt. Kailash as the auspicious location. This journey brings a complete change in the life of mortal beings. It is believed that many take this Kailash Mansarovar Yatra as the mean of liberation.

It is located at a height of 6174 meters. As per Hindu mythology, Mt. Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva. So the pilgrims make circumambulation around the mountains covering an area of approx 53kms to attain salvation ie. Moksha. Mt. Kailash is the source point of four important rivers – Brahmaputra, Indus, Ganges, and Sutlej. There are times when the pilgrims are unable to complete circumambulation around the mountains. Sometimes, the pilgrims rotate only the Yam Dwar (starting point of the Kora) and come back.

Another major point of attraction is Mansarovar Lake. Many mythological stories evolve around this lake. The devotees across religions believe this lake as the source of ultimate power. The pilgrims take dip in the holy water of Mansarovar to attain salvation in life. The etymological meaning of Manasarovar is lake of consciousness (manas- consciousness or mind and Sarovar- Lake). This holy dip purifies the soul and body of the devotee. So the devotees believe that this journey is actually is a road map to heaven by purifying the souls. The devotees undertake this spiritual Kailash journey rigorously just to attain the roadway to heaven through the gateway of Lord Shiva. This lifetime journey completely changes the life of the devotees.
