When he asked one of the Garpons of Ngari whether Kailash was climbable, the Garpon replied, "Only a man entirely free of sin could climb Kailash. And he wouldn't have to actually scale the sheer walls of ice to do it — he'd just turn himself into a bird and fly to the summit. In , reports emerged that the Chinese had given permission for a Spanish team to climb the peak, which caused an international backlash. Chinese authorities disputed the reports, and stated that any climbing activities on Mt Kailash were strictly prohibited. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I loved the experience of completing the Parikrama. Loved the whole vibe of it. The Sherpas were extremely helpful at each step. As far as the documentation was concerned, it was hassle-free and was done way before time so that was relieving. Next goals is to send parents on this heavenly trek. Everyone must have at least one experience of this spiritual trip once in their life.
Thank you, Adventure Nation for making this possible. I had wanted to go on this trek for the longest time. Had the opportunity to book this one through Adventure Nation who put us in touch with the right people. Right after the booking, the follow up was great on their part and all my questions were answered on time. My only concern was whether we would be able to this high-altitude trek without falling sick. Even though some of us experienced mild symptoms, none of us fell fully sick which was thanks to medication that we started on even before we began this journey.
So, my advice would be to make sure you take a proper medicine kit and consult a doctor for altitude problems. Good luck! Words fall short when I try explaining what we experienced on this life changing trek to Kailash Mansarovar. When we booked Kailash Mansarovar tour package with Adventure Nation in June, I was a bit unsure in the beginning of how it will all go because of the difficulty of the altitude. But throughout the trek, I felt like we were constantly inspired by each other and even the sherpas were so helpful. Day 1 we begun from Pashupathinath and from there on to the day of holy parikrama, it felt as though everything was guided by a spiritual power.
What an experience, truly spellbinding! The pious yatra, the holy pilgrimage, Kailash Parvat and Mansarovar. Took this trip with my son 2 months back. Worth every last penny.

If you are lucky, you will get to go on this yatra once in your lifetime, so make sure you are prepared for it. If you can get family or friends with you, you will enjoy it so much more, trust me. The journey is a bit tough in the starting, but the destination makes everything worthwhile. Thank you Adventure Nation for making this possible. I had been hoping to go on Kailash Yatra for a long long time.
I finally got the chance to do it in the month of May in And what an eye-opening wonderful experience it has been. Hands down, the best experience of my life so far. Everyone on the yatra had a brilliant time. The guide team was amazing, helped us a lot right from the starting. The food and accomodation was great as well. Better than expected.
