Pilgrimage Itinerary

Trip Overview

Mt. Kailash, located in the Western region of Tibet, has been considered sacred by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bonpos for thousands of years. For Hindus it is the place where the Lord Shiva and his consort, mother Parvati reside. For Buddhists, Jains and Bonpos it is the center of the Universe. This pilgrimage includes rigorous overland driving while enjoying the enchanting scenery of Tibetan plateau. In fact, this is the perfect way to experience a pilgrimage tour to Mt Kailash and Holy Mansarovar Lake.
Pilgrimage to this holy land along with blessings of Mohanji, is a unique opportunity for spiritual seekers where Supreme Lord Shiva makes your journey of life successful and fulfilling.
Note: Mohanji will be in Kathmandu with the group to orient them. He will conduct satsangs and bless them when they leave Kathmandu for the pilgrimage. He will return from Kathmandu and not physically travel further on the pilgrimage. He will, of course, be with the group in consciousness and support them to get the maximum from this journey of a lifetime.
