Kailash Manasarovar Innerkora By Overland

Hindus visit Mount Kailash, a peak in the Himalayas, because it is considered to be the holiest of all pilgrimage sites in Hinduism. The mountain is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva, one of the most important deities in Hinduism. Pilgrims believe that a journey to Kailash, also known as Kailash Parvat or Kailash, can bring blessings and spiritual liberation. The trek to Mount Kailash is considered to be a difficult and challenging one, but many Hindus believe that the physical hardships of the journey are a form of spiritual discipline that can purify the mind and body.

Lake Manasarovar, located in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China, is considered to be a sacred lake in Hinduism and Buddhism. According to Hindu mythology, the lake was created by the god Brahma and is considered to be a source of spiritual purification. It is believed that bathing in the lake can wash away one's sins and that drinking its water can grant salvation.

Oxygen level is less at higher altitudes. The inclement weather and high altitude induces certain illness generally not encountered over the plains. Headache, nausea, lassitude, lethargy, breathlessness, general uneasiness [malaise], high irritability, light loss of balance, disorientation, incoherence and insomnia are a few. It is common to all irrespective of the age, sex and physical fitness. Gradual acclimatization is the best answer. Tranquilizers, sleeping dose and strong anti-biotic must be avoided. Some of symptoms indicate that the body mechanism is readjusting to new environments. The best idea is deliberately slow down all the activities and follows the following rules:

  • Rest.
  • Relax-do not exert, be excited.
  • Reduce talking.
  • Walk slowly – adopt one third of your speed and space.
  • Keep your load light.
  • Walk for 15 minutes and rest for 5 minutes.
  • Whenever you feel uncomfortable, just stop; rest and relax.
  • Ignore the sudden outbursts of fellow pilgrims and avoid arguments.
  • Observe silence with smile.
  • Never go too high and too fast.
  • Consume plenty of liquids; never proceed with an empty stomach.
  • Chant a prayer or visualize everything around to suit your pleasant thoughts or put on the earphones and listen to your favourite music, bhajans, chanting etc.
  • Be careful not to catch a cold. It is better to be over clothed than under protected. En-route avoids taking bath or drinking water from Lake Streams or rivers, as your system is not conditioned for this.
  • Keep your boots/Ked inside tent. Protect yourself against dust and direct sunshine during the long stretches of driving. Face, feet and hands must be well protected.
  • The uneven ground, steep slope and slushy banks are full of potholes. Do not combine walking and sight seeing together.
  • Always listen to your guide or the one with experience. Never leave the group.
  • On this trip, over exertion is to be avoided and drinking plenty of fluids is recommendable. During winter, heavy warm clothing is a must.
