Kailash Yatra

Om Namah Shivaya !


Kailash Yatra: Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva. The puranas have multiple references to the devas and rishis visiting Kailash. From the Pandavas in Mahabharatha, to eminent saints like Adi Shankara, everyone has considered the Kailash yatra as the ultimate pilgrimage.

Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar are located in the Himalayas in Tibet, China. The Kailash yatra is physically challenging due to the inhospitable terrain and expensive due to the high permit charges payable to Tibet and China authorities. Shankar Treks has extensive experience in organizing the Kailash Yatra over the past many years.

 

MUKTINATH YATRA

MUKTINATH YATRA is one of 108 Divya Deshams of Lord Vishnu. Here the Lord is in the form of Saligrama present in Gandaki river. At Muktinath temple, Gandaki river splits into 108 streams issuing out of Gomukhas. The river is considered one of the Shakthi Peetams. Muktinath tour includes visit to Manokamana Temple.
