Know about the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra: What distance do you drive every day?

To go on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is considered a blessing by devoted Hindus. While the Kedarnath Yatra or the Badrinath Yatra too are pilgrimages which have a lot of importance, the Kailash Yatra is the one believed to be the most sacred because of the religious significance attached to it and the toughness of the journey. If you are planning to go on the trip, it is essential that you have the right know-how about it.

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra via Lucknow

If you choose to go with a reputed tour operator, and the starting point is Lucknow, you can expect to have the best facilities available to you throughout the trip. The mountainous terrain is difficult to proceed on, and the climatic conditions are far from ideal, but the tour operator can make the whole process a relatively comfortable one. There will be no fixed number of kilometers you will be driven everyday because it depends on what you will be doing on a particular day. For example, you may have to go 300 km by road on a particular day in AC transport while the next day you may not be using any transport at all. You may be practicing trekking to get acclimatized or you may be doing the ‘parikrama’ of Mount Kailash. However, there will be quite a little traveling by road on cars and buses involved. An average of 30 to 40 km per day of driving is what you can expect.

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra via Kathmandu

If you choose the Kathmandu route for the Yatra, you can expect to be taken to some of Kathmandu’s most famous religious places like Pashupatinath Temple. In this route, you will have to go quite a few kilometers on most days by road but if you choose a good tour operator, you will only be driven in AC transport. Your comfort will be taken care of so that you can travel without discomfort. An average of 30 to 40 km per day of driving is what you can expect.

Preparing yourself for the trek

The private tour operator you choose will make sure that you are driven on high-quality transport but it is the trek that you will have to prepare for personally. It is believed that the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra trek is one of the toughest in the world because of the high altitude that even fit people find difficult to get acclimatized to. Since the Yatra is conducted over a short period of time, most people have a tough time getting acclimatized to the altitude which results in them falling sick severely. Here are pointers on how you should prepare yourself for the trek:

  • Not compulsory: First things first. Going for the ‘parikrama’ of Mount Kailash is not compulsory. Instead, it is something that many people forego because of the level of difficulty involved. You may choose not to perform the ‘parikrama’ at all and spend time praying and meditating in Darchen.
  • Physical preparation: Preparing yourself physically for the trek is of utmost importance. The best way to do that is to go to the doctor and ask for medical tests done to prove that you are in the pink of health. If you suffer from any medical conditions, take your medicines regularly to prevent any problems. You also need to build your stamina for the trek which can be done by vigorous and regular exercising. Whether it is brisk walking, running, jogging or swimming, it is essential that you partake in some sort of physical activity as a way of preparation. You don’t need to go to the gym though.
  • Mental preparation: It is said that anyone who gets to go on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra returns as a new person. Going on the Yatra is a spiritual experience. While doing the Yatra, you will not have access to the internet or phone network for most of the part and so you will have the chance to look inwards. This is essential because it will let you realize your inner self without any distractions from the outside world. That is why it is so important to start the trip with a clean slate. This means that you have to try and clear all your past debts and arguments before the start of the Yatra so that your mind is free to receive everything that will be on offer. Forgive anyone who has been mean to you and clear all monetary debts you may have. Try not to argue with anyone during the trip. This way, you will be truly prepared for the trip of a lifetime.
