If you want to touch the highest realms of spirituality and scenic beauty you must opt for the 18 day Kailash Mansarovar Trip. For Hindus across the globe, Mount Kailash is actually earthly manifestation of Mt Meru which is regarded at the center of the universe. Right on top of this mountain resides Lord Shiva and His consort Goddess Parvati. Piligrims actually take this trip in pursuit of enlightenment. They brave harsh weather, huge distances and even bandit attacks. The trip commences with visit to Katmandu which is the base camp for this uphill trek. The first part of journey takes you to Nyalam which is almost 3700 meters above sea level.
