A SPRITUAL YATRA FOR BETTER LIFE:

According to Hinduism, Shiva, resides at the summit of a legendary mountain named Kailāsa, where he sits in a state of perpetual meditation along with his wife Pārvatī. He is at once the Lord of Yoga and therefore the ultimate renunciate ascetic, yet he is also the divine master of Tantra.

According to Charles Allen, one description in the Vishnu Purana of the mountain states that its four faces are made of crystal, ruby, gold, and lapis lazuli.It is a pillar of the world and is located at the heart of six mountain ranges symbolizing a lotus.

Ancient secrets of Mount Kailash remain embedded in the heart of the Himalayas and this mysterious place will continue to fascinate people for a very long time. There is no doubt this is a place of great spiritual significance equally to Hindus , Budhist and Jains. Mt. Kailash at 6714M & holy Mansarovar Lake are located in the Himalayas in Tibet, China. This yatra is really physically challenging due to high altitude Himalayan terrain so Travel Shastri will always make all efforts to make this very exclusive Yatra comfortable and safe for all its Pilgrims so that they carry back with them a life time memory of this great journey.
