Do We Get Drinkable Water On The Trip To Kailash Mansarovar?

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a long journey to visit the Holy place of Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar, and is not generally easy for just anyone to do this Yatra. Some people fail to meet the standard eligibility criteria that has to be met to be able to visit this Holy place. While some others are not willing to do it as they are not ready to experience magnificence at the cost of little discomfort they may feel during the course of the Kailash journey. People ask about the number of concerns they have in their mind that are related to the Kailash Yatra, one of which is the availability of drinking water on the route. Since the Yatra is around ten to twelve days long, it would be nearly impossible for pilgrims and tourists to do it without having water, a basic necessity on the way. Fortunately, there is just no need for fear about the availability of drinking water during the Yatra, as it will be available as per your needs.

Arrangement of Drinking Water for Kailash Yatra

Every tour operator who organizes and makes arrangements for pilgrims to do Kailash Mansarovar Yatra as a business knows very well about the need for safe drinking water on the way. It is no less than his duty to ensure that no pilgrim who has booked a package with him, will feel any sort of inconvenience during the trip in terms of a basic necessity, such as water.

To fulfill such a requirement, the tour representative will make all arrangements of carrying drinking water with his Sherpa team. You may even find some members of the touring committee carrying big jars of drinkable water along with them for the pilgrims. This will ensure that any pilgrim can get access to safe, drinkable water at all times. One can get his personal bottles refilled with water at any point in time.

Also, from the start of the Kailash Yatra from Kathmandu, there are a number of halts in between before you reach Mount Kailash. In all of these halts, which will be monasteries, guest houses, hotels, etc., drinking water will be made available to you. You may even find some places where packaged drinking water is sold at affordable prices. It is better to buy water than to face any inconvenience because of that and neglect enjoying the trip.

Things to Consider While Being on Kailash Yatra

Related to the obvious, basic need for drinking water, there are certain important things that every tourist or pilgrim should know about while forwarding on the journey to the Kailash Mansarovar. These are as follows:

  • In case you have any doubt about the availability of drinkable water or want some specific facility, it is best to talk to your tour operator about it beforehand. As a part of his business, he knows well about how to ensure a safe, enjoyable Kailash Yatra for all his tourists, as per their specific needs. 
  • While continuing the journey to Mount Kailash, you may also find some flowing streams of water or small ponds at some places in between. Collected water in big pits can be the water from the rains, which may not be safe for drinking purposes. So, it is advisable not to drink unhealthy water from flowing streams or small ponds you find on the way, unless approved by your tour operator who knows well about the quality of such water. Taking any risk can cause health problems, which may prevent you from enjoying the journey the most.

So, whenever needed, drink from the personal water bottle you carry, and get it refilled from time to time while on the way with safe drinking water only.

  • In some of the guest houses or monasteries, you will be made to stay for some time or even for the whole night, you may face unavailability of hot water for bathing or other needs. This is obvious, as there is no twenty-four power supply available there. So, you should remain calm and patient in such situations. In general, not every pilgrim or tourist feels the need to take a bath every day while on the journey to Mount Kailash. 
  • While being on the journey to this enchanting Holy place with other travelers in a group, it is important for you to be cooperative with others. Sometimes, quarrels and disputes can happen because of petty issues, like drinking water, etc. Just like you, other people will also be facing some unexpected inconveniences, if any. So, as a team, it will be best to be cooperative with each other and enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience that you may not get to feel anywhere else. 

Also, when in need, you should also be ready to share drinking water with others.
