This Holy Mt. Kailash and Mansarovar Yatra tour is designed to all the pious pilgrims (Yatris) who cross oceans and continents in order to have a glimpse of the abode of Lord Shiva...
Holy Mount Kailash - Mansarover is one of the most popular ultimate Hindu pilgrimage sites in Himalayan region dedicated to Lord Shiva where every devotee wants to go. Mount Kailash, which is believed to have been formed 30 million years ago when Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most revered places in the Himalayas.
Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash are two of the holiest pilgrimage areas to devotees of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Bonism and many other faiths. Each year thousands of devotees undertake the treacherous and rigorous journey through the mountains and plains of Nepal and China ( Tibet) to reach this sacred land.
Mt. Kailash, 6,740 mtr. high peak is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, wholly within Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with awesome beauty, with four great faces. It is the spiritual centre for four great religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. For the Hindus Mount Kailash is the earthly manifestation of Mt. Meru, their spiritual centre of the universe, described as a fantastic 'world pillar' 84,000 miles high, around which all else revolves, its roots in the lowest hell and its summit kissing the heavens. On the top live their most revered God, Shiva ( Paramashiva, Kailashapati, MahaRudra), and his consort Parvati. For the Jains, an Indian religious group, Kailash is the site where their first prophet achieved enlightenment. For the older, more ancient religion of Bon, it is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven.
Spread out on the Tibetan plateau beside Mount Kailash is the giant lake of shifting colors - Lake Mansarovar. Brahma, the creator, had a mind (Man) for the creation of a lake (Sarovar), hence its name Mansarovar. A pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and a bath in the Mansarovar is believed to bring about salvation (Moksha) and washed away all the sins of life. Over the centuries pilgrims have constantly journeyed immense distances to achieve enlightenment or cleanse themselves of sin, braving enormous distances, particularly harsh weather and bandit attacks. People have been visiting Kailash - Mansarovar for centuries. It used to be very hard journey in the past; today we (Earthbound Expeditions) can bring you there with help of Landcrusiors via Kathmandu. So it is lot easy to reach to the heaven now!
This Kailash mansarovar yatra, an adventure travel begins with the drive across the Himalaya west into Tibet to Holy Lake Mansarovar. Here you will join the throngs of pilgrims who, for centuries, have converged on this remote southwestern corner of Tibet to circumambulate the sacred mountain, considered to be the center of the universe by Hindus and Buddhist alike. Kailash enjoys great popularity the folk religion of Tibet - it is the soul of the country and assures protection for all Tibetans. The fountain head of four great Asian rivers ( Indus, Sutlej, Bramhaputra and Karnali), few mountain reveals Kailash for its mystique, isolation and prominence, for 3 days you will walk with pilgrims around this almost perfectly symmetrical mountain before the trek back into Nepal. Your trek / tour pioneered by Earthbound Expeditions takes you into northern riches of the country where only few trekkers have walked these trials, unchanged over the ages. The encounter with the herders, pilgrims and the local people will be lively and make for precious memory. It is an experience of a lifetime...!

Mount Kailash - The abode of Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati : Mt. Kailash is claimed to be the apex of the Hindu religious axis, is also one of the holist mountains in Tibet. Lord Shiva resides in Kailash among the peaceful Himalayas. A mythological story says that Lord Shiva once built a house for himself but gave it away to a devotee who asked for it. Thus without changing his residence he settled in the mountain of Kailash. This is his abode where he stays with his whole family including his wife Goddess Parvati and children Lord Ganesha and Lord Kartikiya and the other Shiv Ganas (group of Shiva Devotees) like Nandi and others. According to ancient religious texts, the abode of Lord Vishnu is called Vaikuntha, the abode of Lord Bhrama is called Bhramaloka and the abode of Lord Shiva is called Kailash. Of the three, one can only go bodily and return in this life from Kailash having experienced divinity. The Hindus, buddhist and Jains all alike travel to this place as pilgrims.

To Whom It May Concern
We would like to share our wonderful trekking trip to Kailash , Mansarovar Tibet this Summer of 2014 with Earthbound Expedition based in Khatmandu .This was our third trip and second with Earthbound Expeditions.
Rajan and Badri who are heart and Soul organised the trip for a group of 14 people . Our trip was organised in such a way that we all received individual attention but also maintaining very high team moral .
Badri and his team of Sherpas made sure we drank minimum 3 litres of water daily to maintain oxygen level at high altitudes , eat enough good food to keep our energy level at the highest .Also made sure that all of us climatized well so we were made to do trekking on small doses daily . Selection of our accommodation was very comfortable as a result we had good night rest after long and ardous journey thru Tibet Valleys and Plains and ready for next day.
Our requests were fulfilled with a Smile and nothing was too much for them. We were given ample of time for Photos and enjoy the sheer beauty of Mountains and Lakes and Silence throughout the journey.
Add to our enjoyment were the excellent Cook and a team of Sherpas who cooked delicious food daily with a variety . Our heartiest thanks to Gopal, Arjun, Naran , Sudhir and Maule and anyone that I have forgotten to mention.
Puja at Mansarovar is a an experience we will cherish for the rest of our lives . Badri and team supplied with all the Puja Ingredients . Accommodation was at Swami’s Ashram at the edge of Mansarovar. Special tents were built for Puja and morning bath . Puja was very well performed by Manishbhai and Dinaben. We spent Full Moon Night at Mansarovar pre-planned by the team . Some 5 tents were erected besides normal accommodation for people who wanted to watch shooting stars and Early morning celestial bodies to take a dip in Mansarovar . Experience was “ FANTASTIC “
We had full Darshan of Holy Kailash day and night without a shed of Cloud for full duration of our trek and Parikrama . We believe this was all due to “ Heart & Soul “ Rajan, Badri and all the group put in towards the pilgrimage and not forgetting the Sherpas .
It is hard to put in so little words but our experience with Earthbound Expedition was fabulous and unforgettable .We all look forward to do many more trips with them and would recommend anybody who is thinking of Tibet , Nepal or any Neighbouring countries .
Last but not least a Big Thank You to Rajan & Badri for making our Holy Land experience wonderful and Godly one .
If anyone would like to know more about Earthbound Expedition or Kailash Mansarovar I would be too glad to share the experience .My Contact number is 0044 (0) 7798770282, London, UK.
