For people who want to go for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, the journey to this Holy place is quite difficult. To look at the scenic beauty around this place, one needs to be physically and mentally prepared for the same. Even there are fitness and health related guidelines and tests, that needs to be kept in mind, to become eligible to visit Kailash Mansarovar. A lot of people fails to fulfil their dream to visit this Holy place, just because they are not prepared for the tough situations to be faced for this journey. This is one of the reasons why it has been said that the actual journey for the Kailash Mansarovar starts well before the physical journey during the best season of making a visit.
Just believing in the saying that you can go only visit there if you get the ‘call’ from the Heavens, will not do much good to you. All the pilgrims and tourists have to prepare themselves for the journey which they might be making just for once in their lifetime.
While it is believed that to visit Kailash Mansarovar is a journey to meet Lord Shiva who lives there. Even doing the preparation for it is no less than the journey itself. So, if you are planning to visit Mount Kailash ahead in time, here are some of the preparation tips you should know well about:
Some people do not want to experience the change in the way they live life, even when they are traveling to some distant mountainous region. This is just not good for those people who want to make a visit to Mount Kailash once in their lifetime. Over the mountains, they will need to trek, live in tents, eat only the food that is available. To do it all, it is important and is needed for an individual to move out of his comfort zone.
For people who want to get the religious benefits of making a visit to Kailash Mansarovar, it is recommended to eat only vegetarian food, not eating animal meat and products. Practicing to live by eating fruits and vegetable for some time will make it easier for you to make the journey to the Mount Kailash. Similarly, one should practice eating dinner before sunset, or around the right time at least. All the addictive habits, such as drinking alcohol, smoking and drug addiction should be avoided.
To climb up a mountain or to do trekking, it requires an individual to be physically fit. Some people just think that doing some exercises just before they will leave for Kailash Mansarovar, do not help them a lot. Instead, doing exercises regularly should be made a part of their lifestyle. This will prepare them to make a visit to Mount Kailash and face all the difficulties without being troubled.
As per the rules and guidelines, an unhealthy person which fails to qualify the tests related to Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, will not be permitted to do that at any cost. This involves risk of life for such people. So, it is important for you to maintain a healthy body, by following a healthy lifestyle, free from addictions and stress. Along with that, you should keep your overall health checked, by getting certain medical tests regularly. This will not only help you change your lifestyle accordingly, but also prevent you from paying non-refundable deposit for medical tests that are done for Kailash Yatra. Keep in mind that it is only good to go to Mount Kailash, if you are fit for the same. Doing it otherwise, may cost your life.
It is also believed that pilgrims who visit Mount Kailash returns as a totally new person, as the journey changes his mind-set to a good extent. Going there with ego in mind is something that should also be avoided. That is why, you are advised to settle all monetary debts or promises made to loved ones, before you take on the pilgrimage. Similarly, if there are some people with whom you share soured relationships, try to spread love to them and change the bond you share with them. This all is advised just to remove ego off your mind, and to prepare it to receive the gifts that the journey to Kailash will give you.
While going for a trek or a visit to a mountainous region, over-packing should always be avoided. Similarly in the case of visit Kailash Mansarovar, you should only pack things that are absolutely needed as a part of the journey. Anything more than you require will most likely to cause trouble to you.
