About Shivasthal:

Shivasthal is one of the sacred places on the journey to Kailash Mansarovar. It is a site revered by Tibetans, hence one can spot prayer flags and other Tibetan ornaments in abundance at Shivasthal.

Location of Shivasthal:

You will pass through Shivasthal on Day 2 of Mount Kailash Parikrama. The second day of Parikrama of Mount Kailash is from Dirapuk to Zuthulpuk which is 22 km. After trekking uphill for 6km, the pilgrims reach Dolma La Pass (the highest point of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra). It is right before Dolma La Pass about 100-200 meters you get to see Shivasthal.

Significance of Shivasthal:

Shivasthal is a symbol of life and death. There is a belief that if you donate clothes, gold, etc at Shivasthal, then you will get it in your next life. Sometimes people donate bad clothes which leads to creating litter in the region. We recommend not to donate anything at Shivasthal and better to donate the stuff to the Local poor people and Lama (priest).
