Overview

Holy Kailash Mansarovar & Indus River Valley Trek
Private Trip – 2015[20 Nights 21 Days]
Prof. Dr.  Ajit Kumar Verma, an eminent scholar and well versed in the divinity of this region may be accompanying this pioneering expedition to the holy valley of Indus and it's source.


The most holy and mystical mountain in the Himalayas, Mt. Kailash has been a holy site to the adherents of Hindu, Bon, Buddhist and the Jain religion for centuries. Geographically situated in the middle of six mountain ranges symbolizing the Lotus, Mt. Kailash is said to be the eternal adobe of Lord Shiva, the God of all Gods in Hinduism; the place where the first Jain Tirtahnkara, Rishabhadeva attained liberation from rebirth, the navel of the universe and home of Buddha Demchok who represents supreme bliss in Buddhism; and the place of all spiritual power in the Bon religion.

The four major rivers of the Indian subcontinent, Indus, Brahmaputra, Karnali and Sutlej, along whose banks the earliest civilizations arose in the Indus valley thousands of years ago originate from Lake Mansarowar in Mt. Kailash, the highest fresh water lake in the world. So, it is no wonder that Mt. Kailash, Lake Mansarowar and its sister lake Rakshastal has been the holiest pilgrimage site for the inhabitants of the region whose waters still sustain much of the Indian subcontinent.
The circumambulation of Mt. Kailash and the water of Lake Mansarowar are believed to wash away all sins of the pilgrims and devotees have endured this long and arduous pilgrimage for thousands of years. Due to the terrain and the abrupt rise in altitude, the penance for the pilgrimage considered one of the hardest is also one of the greatest paths to salvation.

Though today the route is much short and safe due to modern conveniences, it has not lost its spirituality and the mystical inner peace experienced by those who tread the paths followed by ancients in search of the same spirituality. The 12 nights 13 days Mount Kailash Mansarowar Yatra (tour) conducted by us is to help devotees keep their vow and make the pilgrimage run as smoothly as possible with our expert team of experienced local guides and impeccable logistics.

The snowcapped Mt. Kailash that towers over the other mountain ranges, the deep blue water of Lake Mansarowar and Lake Rakshastal clear, enough to see the bottom of the lake, the monasteries along the lake which look as if carved right out of the cliffs has a mysterious and mystical magnetism that has made generations of humanity come and pay homage to the mountains that has sustained them spiritually and physically. The route is one of the most spiritual and out of the tours and trails run by us; we would highly recommend this spiritual walk to all devotees and travelers of the world.

Trekking in Tibet is famous for exploring Buddhist culture, landscape, snowcapped mountains, and life style of remote peoples. Indus River alley trek is designed for those who want to walk and explore Real Tibet. Indus valley is south west of Mt. kailash. Indus valley is is consider as a sacred valley in Hinduism, Buddhism, Bon and Jain. It is consider as House of Lord Siva. This trek is start from Dirapuk monastery and end at Juthulpuk.

The Indus River is a major river in Asia which flows through Pakistan. It also has courses through western Tibet and Northern India. Originating in the Tibetan Plateau in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar, the river runs a course through the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, towards Gilgit and Baltistan and then flows in a southerly direction along the entire length of Pakistan to merge into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Sindh. The total length of the river is 3,180 km (1,980 mi). It is Pakistan's longest river.

Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts
Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts Location: Annapurna | Type: Adventure, Nature Lovers | Tags:NepalNOW, Trek, annapurna, nepal, nepal now The Annapurna region, the most popular tourism destinations of the country, is located in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal. Following the powerful earthquakes of April and May 2015, the extent and severity of earthquake-related structural damage and geologic hazard were widely believed to be limited, but remained unknown. With funding from SAMARTH-NMDP and on behalf of the government of Nepal through the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, an assessment team was dispatched from June 25 to July 2, 2015 to this region to observe and record seismic damages that occurred along the main trekking routes and select villages as a result of the earthquakes. The team was comprised of a structural engineer and an engineering geologist, supported by a professional mountain guide and local conservation officer familiar with the region. The objective of the rapid reconnaissance of the region was to a) develop a baseline understanding of the extent of earthquake-related damage, b) advise on the overall trekking safety of the region’s routes and c) provide recommendations on repairs or risk mitigation that will inform tourism recovery and commercial readiness strategies that are currently being developed by the government, its international development partners, and Nepal’s tourism industry at large. The aim of these efforts is to promote tourism back to Nepal which will support the nation’s economic recovery. The findings of the structural and geotechnical rapid assessment of the region are summarized in this report.
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal Jonathan Irish, a Contributing Photographer of National Geographic, had visited Nepal in 2007. In an Instagram post published on the official @NatGeoTravel account last evening, he told how eagerly he wants to revisit Nepal and espcially after the devastating quakes. He explained that a tourist visits Nepal to trek the world’s highest mountains but they return because of the amazing people. He also urged the travellers to keep Nepal on the top of their bucket list. Here’s what he originally wrote on the post shared with 4.9 million followers of Nat Geo Travel along with this photograph: cover “I miss Nepal. There are some places that stay with you for a really long time. For me, Nepal is one of them. I hiked to Everest Base Camp way back in 2007, it has haunted me ever since. There’s a common saying that goes like this: most people come to Nepal for the mountains, but return for the people. I think that’s really accurate. Walking among the biggest mountains in the world is something special. But it’s the amazing people that make this place unforgettable. I need to go back sometime soon and see this beloved country again especially after the devastating earthquakes recently. Now is the time to support Nepal. If you haven’t been yet, put it to the top of your bucket list.”
