Mt. Kailash is situated in Tibet, which is under the control of China. It is located at an altitude of 6638 Meters. Mansarovar lake is located approximately 45 km from Mt. Kailash at an altitude of 4590 Meters. Mt. Kailash is important due to its location and geography; it is the highest part of the world, and it is a source of four mighty rivers of the region: The Brahmaputra, The Sutlej, The Ganges, and the Indus. The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is the holiest and most spiritual yatra of Hindus. It is believed that Mt. Kailash is the own house of Lord Shiva. Every year thousands of pilgrims and devotees undertake the divine yatra from various parts of the country & the world as well.

As per the Hindu methodology, Lord Shree Brahma conceived the idea of the Kailash Mansarovar and named it Manasarovar, which is a combination of two words ‘Manas’ (mind) and ‘Sarovar’ (lake). 

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is something very special that cannot be described in words and personally experienced. Every year thousands of pilgrims visit there by booking Kailash Mansarovar Yatra Packages. This package includes food and lodging for the devotees. The major attraction of Kailash yatra is the holy parikrama of Kailash Parvat and a holy dip in Mansarovar Lake.
