Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a sacred pilgrimage site for the thousands of devotees of Lord Shiva, which prompt them to take this pious journey in order to pay their homage and walk around the Mount Kailash, which is where he is believed to reside in the state of meditation. It is the belief that if a person successfully completes the Parikrama around Mount Kailash, he or she is free from all the sins and shall go to the heaven after death.

Wildlife Spotting at Kailash Mansarovar Yatra: The month of July and August is an amazing time to spot some of the rare species at Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. I was left mesmerised spotting umpteen species of birds around the Lake Mansarovar and saw two variety of cats while doing the Parikrama around Mount Kailash.

A Mythological Bliss: Look at any corner of Lord Shiva’s abode and you would bound to find a tale hidden. I mean there would be any rare patch where you wouldn’t hear any story associated with it. Honestly, for someone like me who would love to hear mythological tales, Kailash Mansarovar Yatra trail is a blessing for its never- ending mysteries. There is no end to it. Seriously
There is also one thing that remained with me about Kailash Mansarovar Yatra and that is the striking similarity of its terrain with our country landscape. I remember, the moment I clear the Chinese immigration and entered China, I was instantly reminded of Kashmir looking at the surroundings on my way to Keyrong.
The trip ahead transported me to Ladakh, since the trail of Mount Kailash is considered to be an extension of India. I was both happy as well as sad to see it because I wish to see the world without borders one day. There are things that you really need to accept on somedays
