Detailed description of days spent at Manasarovar and the Mt. Kailash parikrama


Day 08: Manasarovar parikrama by jeep.
Manasarovar, at 14950 ft. is the highest body of fresh water in the world. The lake is full of fish and swans. The lake has turquoise complexion. It is the lake of compassion, tranquillity and bliss. This is intimately connected with Kailash Parvat. It is in their combination creation comes forth.
You have enough time to perform 'puja', take the holy dip in the lake, collect the water and stones (each one a 'linga') and stroll along the shores of the lake. It is windy and the water is icy cold. The reflection of the Gurla Mandhata on the glistening waters of the lake is a sight to behold and with your gaze firmly on Mt. Kailash in the distant horizon, time flies. 
By mid morning, we begin the 6-hour Manasarovar parikrama by jeep stopping en route at Chuku gompa and Chiu gompa. We later reach the small Tibetan town of Darchen at the base of Mt. Kailash by evening and spend the night at the Guest House

Note: Due to operational reasons we sometimes camp at Ashtapath instead of at Darchen so that the next day's parikrama starts earlier and yaks can be hired the same evening. This will be decided on the spot. The group being small and mobile, we are able to take these decisions without any problem to the yatris. Further, during the Manas parikrama by jeep we have to cross 3 to 4 rivulets and streams, which at times may become flooded making it impossible to cross by jeep. In that case, we will spend more time at the campsite and drive to Darchen in the late afternoon. Yatris are requested to maintain a flexible attitude during this day. 

Day 09: Drive to Ashtapath. Trek from Ashtapath (Yamadwar) to Dirapuk. 6-7 hrs.
Wake up early in the morning and after an hours drive we reach Ashtapath. (Yaks are hired for those who want the same) and then we begin our parikrama. The trail follows along the western spur of the foothills before reaching a cairn of prayer stones where it turns north into the great western valley. After about 1 km it reaches Chorten Kang nyi (Two legged Stupa). A few hundred meters east is The Darpoche (Great Prayer Flagpole), which is taken down and redecorated on the full moon day of the Buddha's Enlightenment Festival (around April/May each year). Hundreds of Tibetan pilgrims come for this event. It marks the beginning of the Pilgrimage season since the Dolma La Pass is blocked by snow until April. Above the shallow depression of Darpoche is a large flat ledge of red rock. On the surface many prayers and mantras are carved. It is here that the Buddha came with 500 disciples from India. The view from this place looks down upon a wide flat expanse of the valley floor. The trail now continues up the valley. The path is not steep but climbs steadily. The red escarpments of the eastern wall tower above the valley obscuring the peak from view. After some time you pass the Three Pinnacles of Longevity above the opposite cliff face. They represent the Three deities of Longevity: Amitayus. White Tara and Vijaya. Rising higher behind this is the rock formation regarded by Hindus as the Monkey god Hanuman in Prayer to the mountain. Buddhist call it the 'Torma' offering of Padmasambhava. After a couple of hours one comes upon a grassy flat populated by marmots. Rivulets of pure sweet water cross the trail. There is a rock in the middle of this spot, which is associated with Mahakala, one of the main Buddhist Protectors. From here the valley begins to turn east and, as though gazing down from the heavens, directly above is the western face of Mt. Kailash, a triangular facet of rock dripping with great drops of overhanging snow. This is a face of the mountain rarely seen in photos, yet it has a power and beauty of its own. From this turn in the valley it is another 2 hours at least before reaching Dira Puk. At this point the going is not so easy and, if it is late afternoon or near sunset, each steps seems a race against time. Once Dirapuk is in sight it is important to keep to the trail. Do not be hasty. It actually passes your destination on the far side of the river. Unless you are prepared to remove shoes and socks and chance a wade through the river (which can be risky when the water is high) it is better to follow the trail down the opposite bank. The Dirapuk campsite has magnificent views of Kailash, which seems within touching distance now. Evening conversation in the dining tent revolves around the great day ahead where Dolma has to be climbed and conquered. Overnight camp.

Day 10: Dirapuk to Zuthulpuk 22.9 Km.
This day is the climax of the pilgrimage. The Dolma La lies 6.4 km. ahead and 762 meter above Dirapuk. Physically it is the most arduous day. After an early breakfast we set off as the sun's ray breaks over the ridges above. After the footbridge the trail rises up a rocky slope. Take this gently but steadily. It soon reaches a level walk. The peak of Mt. Kailash rises to the right and can now be seen linked to a long spur, which joins the eastern ridge. This is the top edge of the glacial valley from which the Lhachu (Divine River) flows. Follow the route to Dolma Pass via Shivasthal as the other route is not possible for the pilgrims. Keep Kailash on your right. The stretch of 4 miles between Dhira Puk to Dolma is very steep and extremely tiring and exacting. Be deliberately slow and use the walking stick. Stop rest and then proceed. Whenever your feel tired, stop rest and then regain your steps. Dolma la to Zuthul puk. After a 30 minutes rest in Dolma La, we descend a steep, rock strewn path to the valley below. Just below the pass is Lake Tu Je Chenpo Dzingbu (Sanskrit Gauri Kunda), in english 'Pool of great compassion'. It is 200 ft. below. It is an emerald green lake. This is the holiest lake. It would be frozen most of the time. A final steep descending staircase brings you to the valley floor. From here it is still about 5 hours to the day's destination with no shelter in between. It is vitally important to remain on the right hand side of the river, the west Bank. If not you will be trapped, unable to cross it. The walk now becomes very pleasant and relaxing (as long as the weather is clear). Finally one reaches Zuthul Puk, the cave of miracles. The great ascetic Milerappa is supposed to have performed miracles here to defeat Naro Bonchung. The statue of this great Saint is here. Overnight Camp.

Day 11: Trek Zuthulpuk -14 KM- to Darchen Drive to Mansarovar. Drive 1 hrs 50 km.
There are some streams to cross. Last portion can be covered by land cruizer. Milerapa's Cave The main temple encloses Milarapa's shoulders and upper back. This was formed when he forced the huge rock higher to make the cave roomier. Unfortunately it now was too high and draughty. So the top of the slab (which is encased inside a mud wall) is said to hold imprints of his feet and hands where he pressed down on the rock to make it lower and just right ! You may sit within the cave. A torch is useful. The walk back to Darchen is easy and exit from the valley can be reached within a few hours. After a brief rest to regroup, we start our drive to Mansarovar. O/n camp.
