Kailash Mansarovar Yatra concludes Now

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, which began in June, concluded on Tuesday as the last and 18th batch of pilgrims left for New Delhi from Kathgodam in Uttarakhand.

"Before departing for New Delhi, the last batch of 38 pilgrims was received by officials of Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam (KMVN) (the nodal agency for the yatra) at Sukhatal guest house of the Nigam and the members were given citations and memorials on completion of the yatra," Nigam officials said.

"A total of 910 pilgrims from 28 states of the country undertook the pilgrimage to Mansarovar and Kailash this year. The pilgrims were divided in 18 batches, the maximum number since the yatra started in 1981," Managing Director of KMVN Deepak Rawat said.

Maximum pilgrims to Kailash this year were from Gujarat, followed by other states like Maharashtra, Delhi, Rajasthan and West Bengal, Nigam officials said.

"The highest numbers of 193, 113 and 120 pilgrims were from Gujarat, Maharashtra and Delhi, respectively, while the lowest number was from Manipur as there was only one pilgrim from the state," they said.

Talking about the last year's yatra, Rawat said, "Only one batch could reach Kailas Mansarovar last year as the routes were fully damaged due to heavy landslides and broken bridges on way to Nabhidhank, the last track route camp in the Indian side of the pilgrimage."

"We took extra care about the routes this year and selected four alternative routes. But we used only two routes alternatively due to some disturbances during the monsoon months," he said.

Mount Kailash is Lord Shiva’s Holy Heavenly Home

For many ages doing the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra has always been the favored way for one to show devotion and obedience to the Lord Shiva. This prompts many Hindu devotees according to the ancient holy texts (Ramayana and Mahabharata) to undertake the difficult and hard pilgrimage (Yatra) all in reverence of Shankar Begawan.

For in the Hindu holy trinity Lord Shiva is revered and worship as the dissolving force of the universe. Dissolving or death is the believed medium for the potential of recreation through rebirth or reincarnation. Therefore, Mount Kailash is believed to be the center of the universe and the source of creative power that radiates all around.

It’s no coincidence therefore that the holiest peak believed to radiate creative power and the center of the universe dwells in proximity to lake Manasarovar. Manasarovar which means Lake of Consciousness and Enlightenment has long held a stupendous adulation and reverence in the eyes of the Yatris (pilgrims).

For Yatris who takes a Snan (holy bath or dip) in its sacred waters are believed absolved from their past lifetime sins. It’s equally believed the washing away of sins brings one closer to the consciousness associated with the Lord Shiva’s holy and divine dwelling place at mount Kailash.

How to prepare for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

Guideline For Kailash Yatra 2014:-

Climatic conditions:
From the border onward, the roads are plain. The high altitude Tibetan terrain is dry, cold, windy and dusty. Nights are pretty cold.

General preparation:
It’s important that you are in good  health. You should be able to walk properly. Carry some general medicines for fever, bodyache, cold, cough, dysentery, constipation, congestion, acidity, etc.

It would be a good idea to wear in layers. Essential for the trip are inner thermals, woolen socks, gloves & monkey cap, sweater, pants / jeans & shirts and a full body rain coat. Check with your operator.

The vehicles:
There are 2 types. The 3500 cc and the 4500 cc. Make sure your operator gives you the latter. They do have the power to cut across the rugged Tibetan plateau.

Travel in group:
I recommend traveling in packs of 4. Every vehicle will take 4 passengers and one Sherpa who sits behind. Being with your own group comes in handy.

The Parikrama:
Those who can’t foot it, have the option to hire the services of a pony or a yak. Make sure to let your operator know at least a day in advance. You may also need to hire the services of a porter.

Positive attitude:
The drive isn’t comfortable. It’s bumpy as bumpy can be. The vehicle air-conditioners won’t work (drivers refuse to turn them on); you can’t open the windows as the dust and chill become unbearable. I firmly believe that people with normal health can certainly make the trip and enjoy it too. There’s only one rule to follow – approach with a positive attitude. If you believe you can do it, then you will do it happily.
