Overview

Holy Mt. Kailash Mansarovar Yatra – A journey to heaven…

Join our 14 days Kathmandu – Lhasa – Kailash – Kerung / Naylam – Kathmandu tour and take advantage of our experience and expertise to enjoy the ultimate pilgrimage yatra to Kailash Mansarovar.
We have been taking 1000’s of people from, UK, USA, India, Australia and around the world to Kailash Mansarovar for the last 20 years with love and care.

Kailash Mansarovar is such a holy land that the Skanda Purana (Hindu Ritual Text Book)  wrote below quote on 6th Century BC … “As the dew is dried up by the morning Sun so are the sins of human beings by the sight of Himalaya, Holy Mt. Kailash” – Skanda Purana (Hindu Ritual Text Book) – 6th Century BC

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.

The Lord  Shiva’s mountain Kailash appears majestic with the surrounding of many smaller cliffs resembling the attendant divines of the Lord like Lotus bud or a crown, which looks like a natural pyramid.

Kailash is one of the most popular Hindu pilgrimage sites in the Himalayan region dedicated to Lord Shiva and Braham’s lake Mansarovar. Mount Kailash, believed to have formed 30 million years ago when the Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most revered places in the Himalayas.

Lake 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 a journey of a lifetime through the mountains and plains of Nepal and China (Tibet) to reach this sacred land.

Mt. Kailash is situated to the north of the Himalaya in Tibet, a perfect mountain with incredible beauty, with four great different faces. It is the spiritual center for four major 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 center 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.

Over the centuries pilgrims have journeyed continuously immense distances to achieve enlightenment or cleanse themselves of sin, braving enormous distances, unusually harsh weather and bandit attacks. People have been visiting Kailash – Mansarovar for centuries. It used to be an arduous journey in the past; today we (Earthbound Expeditions) can bring you there with the help of land cruisers via Kathmandu. So it is a lot easy to reach to heaven now!

Our 14 days Kailash Mansarovar Yatra adventure 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 fountainhead of four great Asian rivers (Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali), few mountains reveals Kailash for its mystique, isolation, and prominence, for three days you will walk with pilgrims around this almost perfectly symmetrical peak before the trek back into Nepal.

Your trek/tour pioneered by Earthbound Expeditions takes you into northern riches of the country where only a 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!

If you wish to add Everest base camp Tibet in your itinerray that will add 2 more days in the above itinerary. If you wish to include  Charan sparsa – close up view of Mt. Kailash   ( also considered as part of Inner Kailash Parikrama) need to add 1 more days for the whole trip. Please contact us for customized Kailash Mansarovar itinerary and cost.

Take advantage of our knowledge and expertise as Earthbound Expeditions have been taking people to Kailash Mansarovar safely last 20 years. Everyone claims they do operate Kailash Mansarovar tour but many of them are booking agents only, they take some commission and hand over groups to local agents.

There is a saying that “Everyone dances but some person dance better”, everyone signs but some singers are better. Similarly, everyone runs tours but we run and manage it better.

Our business is more passion-driven than profit-driven, another good reason to travel with us is we work in field of social cause, we have built 153 classrooms after Earthquake, have build many schools and libraries, run some health camps kindly see the link – https://enepaltrekking.com/csr/our-business-is-more-passion-driven-than-profit/ so you have helped an organization that have corporate social responsibilities.

We will definitely visit Nepal and Tibet again

Dear Mr. Simkhada, We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us realize our lifelong dream of circumambulating Mount Kailash and taking a bath in Lake Manasarover. The 35 days trip that you planned and led for the two of us plus Ms. Lydia Kersbergen, Holland, was beyond our expectations. (May 16 thru June 20, 2004. Las Vegas – Kathmandu – Naylam – Saga – Parang – Manasarovar – Darchen – Mt Kailash – Tharpoche – Tingri – Mt. Everest Base Camp – Lhatse – Shigatse – Gyantse – Lhasa- Kathmandu – Las Vegas) Your team of three Nepalese and three Tibetans worked very well together. In fact, within a few days of the journey, we were all like one big family. Our Toyota Landcruiser driver, Mr. Tsering, is one of the best drivers and mechanics that I have ever met. He made us feel very safe thru all those treacherous mountain passes. Out Tibetan guide, Mr.Tenthar was very helpful and eager to please. His attitude made up for his basic English speaking skills. Our Nepalese cook, Mr. Gambu Sherpa, made such wonderful food throughout the trip that we were afraid of gaining weight! Thanks to Mr. Gambu, we had three real fresh baked cakes to celebrate our anniversary, my birthday and our farewell. We also want to thank you for taking time off from your busy schedule and personally accompanying us throughout the journey and helping us with the three-day trek around Mt. Kailash. I don’t think we would have been able to complete the three-day trek by own feet at our age without your constant guidance and help We will definitely visit Nepal and Tibet again. We hope to do next year the lodge-to-lodge trekking in Nepal. Once again, thank you for the successful planning and leading of our once-in-a-life spiritual journey and trekking adventure. P.S. If you want you can use us as reference if any body want to call us or e-mail us to talk directly they are welcome!

I had many interesting encounters

Dear Rajan and other staffs in Earthbound Expedition, Namaste! This is Megha. I came back to my home on 11th safely. After that, I visited my parents’ home and I stayed in their house more than one week. I could not send e-mail till now, because my parents do not have a computer in their house. The journey to Mt. Kailash and Lhasa tour was so great. And I had many interesting encounters while my staying in Nepal. My travel this time was fruitful. On the day I left Nepal, the car came to pick me up at my hotel just on time. Thank you very much for everything you took care of me. My flight to Japan was good. In Japan, the rainy season finished a few days after my coming back to Japan, and it is so hot every day now. The highest temperature of the day is about 34 – 36 in my city. How is it in Kathmandu now? Does the rainy season in Kathmandu continue till August? Please be careful of your health. I really hope to see you again. Namaste!

Devotion in Service and Support : Mansarovar and Kailash Trip

Words are very limited to express our gratitude for the excellent service and support we got throughout our Manasarovar and Kailash trip . Trip showed us personally many facets of devotion in service and support, sustainability and spirituality in Rajanji and his team. Without the dedicated service of taking care of our comforts, physical trekking and spiritual pilgrimage of Manasarovar and Kailash would have been impossible. Our every day trip started and ended with Rajanji’s beautiful chants and his melodious “Om Mani Padme Hum” Buddhist prayer. Rajanji and his crew of Arjun bhayya, Ram bhayya, Dorji, Narayan, Gokul, Serge, Amrit and rest of them took care all the days serving us most delicious(fresh and hot cooked food almost all the time of the tour with comfort foods like pongal, bhel puri, pav bhaji, chutneys, fresh yogurt, ghee, yummy chai and more …), satvik Indian/Nepalese food! Very simple gestures of reminding us to be hydrated, checking our health (oxygen levels, medical needs…)every day , getting head and shoulder massages for most of us are on everyday basis made us all a family during this trip. We felt the Parikrama started from day one with so much of divinity in Rajanji’s team towards our group of 27 friends. We truly felt blessed everyday of our trip. Physical challenges of the high altitude, cold weather, long walks and not to forget nature calls during the week of Parikrama was possible for us due to Earthbound expedition team dedication. Rajanji was always open for special requests (thank you for satisfying our sweet tooth at a whim’s notice) or accommodations changes. Final Nepalese dinner with traditional dances was a sweet ending to our trip. Looking forward to making more trips with Earthbound team! sincerely, Bharathi & Tikkana

A trip to Mt Kailash and Manasarovar is not any other ordinary travel. It’s logistic challenge and physically & mentally draining. That’s when the Earthbound Expeditions makes it as smooth and comfortable as possible. Working with our team for almost 12months leading to the trip in Sept ’19, Mr Rajan has provided all details and let us customize the trip to suit our needs. But the biggest surprise has been from the time we landed in Lhasa till the time we left Kathmandu. The entire crew of Earthbound Expeditions have ensured we had a fantastic experience. They have literally pampered us in every aspect and taken care of any special request we had. Mr Rajan is an epitome of positive and “make it happen” attitude. And he leads his team from the front. Needless to say, we had an experience of a life time, thanks to Mr Rajan and his crew. They deserve Ten Stars for their customer service and for ensuring every little detail has been taken care of. I would not think twice to go with them on any trip conducted by them.
