Kailash Mansarovar Package

Overview

According to Hindus Mythology, Lord Shiva spends most of his time on the top of the holy Mount Kailash, practicing Yogic austerities, joy, and love with his divine consort Parbati (Mother of Mythology). The Lake Mansarovar and the holy Mount Kailash are the souls of all AUM followers in the world.
"Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt. Kailash wipes out the sins of a lifetime, 108 Parikramas guarantees enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Mansarovar Lake delivers pilgrim to Brahma's paradise and a drop drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundreds of lifetimes."
