Geographically, Mount Kailash is on the South-Western corner of Himalayas in Tibet. Emotionally, Mount Kailash is the high point of spirituality. At an imposing 21,778 feet, it is one of the highest places in the world and source of four mighty rivers that run through the lifeline of Asia. But the greatness of Mount Kailash is way ahead of these.
The whole world treks to the snow-crested top of Mount Kailash in search of oneself.
A journey to Kailash and Manasarovar is what one can dream to complete only once in a lifetime. But that is enough to change the experience of living. This is what makes thousands brave the challenges and scale the heights to be in unison with one’s own soul. Life is not the same after this journey.
The Kailash Manasarovar Yatra (KMY) by Moksha is unique and special. All those who travelled with us will testify this. They all had their lives changed in a positive way. There are different reasons for everyone to take up this magnificent journey, but there is one common reason to do it with Moksha. Because, we make the journey truly yours.
Kailash Parvat or Mount Kailash is where it all began. It has been standing tall over the spiritual mindscape of the land since aeons, challenging and illuminating lives.
According to the myth, Lord Brahma visualised the Lake first in his mind. Hence the name, made out of Sanskrit words ‘manas’ (mind) and ‘sarovar’ (lake).
Hindu mythology says Lord Shiva resides on the top of Mount Kailash, making it the centre of Earth and its connect with Heaven.
According to beliefs of Tibetan Buddhists, Mount Kailash is where Buddha Demchok is based, making it the seat of Supreme Harmony.
For the native Tibetan religion of Bon, Mount Kailash is the cosmic axis. They call it the ‘Nine-Story Swasthika Mountain’ or
Tagzig Olmo Lung Ring.
Jains believe that their first Theerthankara Rishabhadeva attained salvation (Moksha) or liberation from endless cycle of life and rebirth at Mount Kailas, also known as Mount Ashtapada.
It is believed that Manasarovar originated in the mind of Lord Brahma, creator of this Universe. The Lake was visualised in such glory and magnitude that it could cleanse people of their mortal sins. It is the seat of peace and tranquillity, at 15,015 feet above sealevel, just 20 kilometres away from the peak of Mount Kailash. The blend of sacred blue and emerald green over tranquil Manasarovar signifies the union of mind and body at its sublime best.
But that is not what makes the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra (KMY) by Moksha special. It is packed with meditation, satsangs (spiritual discourse), interactions with locals and experiencing the life on such pristine settings. This is not just another pilgrimage; it is an intense spiritual experience where one gets cleansed from within.
The 13/14-day journey starts from Kathamandu, which entices visitors with its array of ancient temples and magical ambience. Yatris will move around the alleys of Kathamandu, imbibing life caught in a time warp, before heading to Tibet. The team will stay overnight at Saga, where meditation sessions by the banks of Manasarovar will make life worth living. What follows is the most difficult and most fulfilling part of the journey – the trek to the Northern face of Mount Kailash, where the yatris will get a chance to meditate facing the magnificent peak.
This is not an easy trip. Cliff-top monasteries and rickety Yak caravans inching along snowy passes of the mighty mountain are just the setting, the real experience is a chance to look within. As one of the yatris noted, “you carry a bit of Kailash in your heart and mind on your way back home.” Just as you leave a part of your being back over there.
Our team is knit like a family of experts who can guide you through alleys of legend, myth and spirituality, making this journey the best you have made in your life. Moksha makes its Kailash Manasarovar Yatra (KMY) in July.
This is an invitation for you to join us in this life-changing and the most defining journey of your lifetime.
