Nathu La Pass, the new route
While a strenuous 15 days (approx) trek is a regular thing for the Uttarakhand route that goes through the Lipulekh Pass (Delhi-Jageshwar-Delhi), the Sikkim route is well-connected via roads with just 3 days of trekking. Moreover, the Sikkim route for Kailash Mansarovar is believed to be easier in terms of road and trekking conditions as compared to the rugged terrain of the Uttarakhand one. Pilgrims can easily undertake this journey via buses and overland vehicles.

The journey
Batches of around 30-50 pilgrims are allowed to leave for the yatra together. Expect stunning terrains, lofty mountains and a lot of camaraderie. Owing to an acute lack of staying facilities, accommodation is, usually, arranged on a sharing basis.

Mansarovar Lake – world’s highest freshwater lake

The ritual
While a dip in the lake is customary, the more vigilant circumambulate Mt Kailash (52 km trek) as well as the lake (100 km trek). This is by no means a small feat and you can pat yourself for having designs on such an experience. Other than Hinduism, both the mountain and the lake is highly revered in Buddhism, Jainism and Bon religion as well.
