Know about the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra: Where do you stay at night?
The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is one of the most fulfilling experiences you can undertake in your life. The spirituality and the inner peace one gets to witness while on the Yatra is profound and truly life-changing. There are many reasons for this. First of all, the religious significance of Kailash Mansarovar in Hinduism makes it one of the most important pilgrimages one can make. Secondly, the mountainous terrain that one has to go through to reach the region makes the whole pilgrimage a pretty tough one. This gets coupled with the harsh weather and the unpredictable landscape, which goes on to make this Yatra different from the rest. If you are going on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra next year, having knowledge about a few things is necessary. One such thing happens to be where you are going to stay at night.
The accommodation during the Yatra
If you have chosen the Trip To Temples agency for the Yatra, then you should be told that accommodation is going to be adequate throughout. You don’t have to worry about it because the agency will have taken care of it. When the members of the group will be staying in cities or bigger towns, accommodation will be booked in reputed hotels. In sparsely-populated areas, you will be taken to guesthouses or lodges to spend the night. You will be provided with a bed or a cot and blankets throughout the trip so that you get comfortable rest every night. There is thus no need to carry sleeping bags.
Why choose a private tour agency for the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra?
As you must know, the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is conducted every year by the Ministry of External Affairs of India. However, a lot of people who want to make the trip choose a private tour agency. This is because of a few reasons mentioned below:
- Easy application: The whole process of applying and getting admission in a group of pilgrims for the Yatra is an easy and convenient one. You don’t have to go anywhere; instead, you can choose to sit right at home and book the Yatra online. All the documents and scanned copies can be sent online to the agency which makes the process a hassle-free one for everyone.
- No lucky draw: This is the main reason why a lot of people forego the government-conducted Yatra and instead choose to go with a private tour agency such as Trip To Temples. With the government, there is a lucky draw that determines which of the applicants get to go on the Yatra for a particular year. There are a huge number of applicants and only a few are lucky enough to get selected in a year. There is no guarantee that one will get selected in a particular year and that can be a bummer for people who really want to go. With a private tour agency, there is no lucky draw and if you want to go on the Yatra, you will very probably be able to go.
- Lenient medical procedure: If you choose a private tour agency, you will have to undergo only a lenient medical examination process yourself to be eligible. However, with the MEA-conducted trip, you will have to go for a stringent medical examination in Delhi even after you have been selected. Only after you pass the medical examination with flying colors will you be allowed to go on the Yatra. If not, you will be asked to head home. This is because with the government-conducted Yatra, there is a bigger emphasis on physical strength and stamina while many of the private routes are conducted by helicopter, making the physical part of the Yatra of lesser importance.
- Shorter duration: Another big advantage of choosing a private tour agency is that you get to complete the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra in less time than if you were to choose the MEA-conducted trip. For example, if you choose the overland route conducted by Trip To Temples, you can complete the Yatra within 14 days. If you choose to go by helicopter, then the Yatra will be completed between 5 and 11 days. This is a great convenience for people who are working or have otherwise busy lives because the MEA-conducted trip gets done in not less than 3 weeks.
Going on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is something that will certainly bring home memorable experiences. If you are a Shiv-bhakt, it is recommended that you do the ‘parikrama’ of Mount Kailash and take a dip in the holy Lake Mansarovar at least once in your lifetime. It is believed that it washes away sins committed knowingly and unknowingly so that you can go back home as a new person.
