kailash mansarovar yatra
It was the last day of final semester engineering and myself Arjun was getting emotional with my friend Ravi and Amar. So we decided to take to go for a trip of lifetime, yes we decided to go for Kailash Manasarovar yatra. We were really looking forward for this amazing experience and started preparing for the tour.
We did all our preparations, packed out back packs, got enough clothing with footwear, got required medicines got the currency conversion done and we were all set to start from Delhi. We took a flight from Delhi to Kathmandu and from there we took the jeeps as organized by our tour operator and started on this expedition. Covering the bumpy roads we reached Kodari for immigration to cross over to China. After the immigration was done, we had our land cruisers waiting for us with the luggage packed over it. In midway, we stopped at a Chinese restaurant for lunch and had Indian food in a Chinese restaurant!
After a climb of about 8000 feet we reached Nyalam, we wandered for some time on the streets and made a stay there. Next day we started and made a stay over at Paryang, located strategically in the mid of road to Mansarovar. Following day we started and we reached Manasarovar, the fresh water lake at the height of 4500 meters. The eye-catching sight of the lake just made us awe about the amazing traits of nature, the lake also changes color. The lake looks absolutely splendid in moonlight and is a delight for the photographers. There are also some rituals performed at the lake in the evening.
After a couple of days of local sightseeing and arrangements we finally begin our march for Kailash Yatra, we hired some porters to carry our luggage and help us at the starting point of trek which is Yamadwar. We saw streams of water flowing as we were striding on our way we could see the north face of Charan Sparsh glacier that comes down from mount Kailash. We made a halt at in the night on one of the resting point and started early next day on the path which was sandy, rocky and hilly. The trek was getting difficult but we were enjoying it. After a series of uneven crossings we were finally able to make it to our destination. It was awe-inspiring and a feeling of great accomplishment.
After this spectacular few days, we realized our Kailash tour was coming to end. This trip has given us an experience of lifetime and an expedition we would never forget. Anyone who is with normal health should try this, it is worth a tour.
