शिव का धाम कैलाश मानसरोवर जहाँ की यात्रा प्रदान करती है मोक्ष..

धर्मयात्रा में इस बार हम आपको दर्शन करा रहे हैं कैलाश मानसरोवर के। मानसरोवर वही पवित्र जगह है, जिसे शिव का धाम माना जाता है। पौराणिक कथाओं के अनुसार मानसरोवर के पास स्थित कैलाश पर्वत पर शिव-शंभु विराजते हैं।

मान्यता है कि यह पर्वत स्वयंभू है। कैलाश-मानसरोवर उतना ही प्राचीन है, जितनी प्राचीन हमारी सृष्टि है। इस अलौकिक जगह पर प्रकाश तरंगों और ध्वनि तरंगों का समागम होता है, जो ‘ॐ’ की प्रतिध्वनि करता है। इस पावन स्थल को भारतीय दर्शन के हृदय की उपमा दी जाती है, जिसमें भारतीय सभ्यता की झलक प्रतिबिंबित होती है। कैलाश पर्वत की तलछटी में कल्पवृक्ष लगा हुआ है। कैलाश पर्वत के दक्षिण  भाग को नीलम, पूर्व भाग को क्रिस्टल, पश्चिम को रूबी और उत्तर को स्वर्ण रूप में माना जाता है।

पौराणिक मान्यताओं के अनुसार यह जगह कुबेर की नगरी है। यहीं से महाविष्णु के करकमलों से निकलकर गंगा कैलाश पर्वत की चोटी पर गिरती है, जहाँ प्रभु शिव उन्हें अपनी जटाओं में भर धरती में निर्मल धारा के रूप में प्रवाहित करते हैं।

यह स्थान बौद्ध धर्मावलंबियों के सभी तीर्थ स्थानों में सबसे अधिक महत्वपूर्ण है। कैलाश पर स्थित बुद्ध भगवान के अलौकिक रूप ‘डेमचौक’ बौद्ध धर्मावलंबियों के लिए पूजनीय है। वह बुद्ध के इस रूप को ‘धर्मपाल की संज्ञा भी देते हैं। बौद्ध धर्मावलंबियों का मानना है कि इस स्थान पर आकर उन्हें निर्वाण की प्राप्ति होती है। वहीं जैन धर्म के पहले तीर्थंकर ने भी यहीं निर्वाण लिया। कुछ लोगों का मानना यह भी है कि गुरु नानक ने भी यहाँ ध्यान किया था।

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra Altitude Sickness:

Acute mountain sickness is a frequent problem in the Himalayan region. The altitude of the peaks and trails between them are among highest on earth. Acclimatization to altitude above 3000 meters takes time. The body undergoes a number of physiological changes some of which are immediate like increased pulse rate & respiratory rate. Others appear more slowly over a period of weeks like the change in acid base balance and production of extra red blood cells. These changes plus the effect of intense sunlight, walking hard & dehydration may cause a number or mild vague symptoms such as Loss of appetite, fatigue, headache, nausea, dizziness, palpitations, sleeplessness, mild shortness of breath with exercise.

The best treatment is prevention! Avoid rapid ascents; take acclimatization symptoms seriously using rest days or Diamox tablets. If symptoms are severe and the patient is ill DESCEND IMMEDIATELY, 300 meters of descent or more should be sought. This usually gives rapid improvement.

To minimize altitude sickness, never rush into things, walk slowly and firmly. The uneven ground, steep slopes and slushy banks are full of potholes. Do not combine walking and sightseeing together. Inspect your track in front and trek slowly.

  • Incase you feel any kind of breathlessness during parikarma, immediately inform our tour guide or Swantour.com staff & follow their advise.
  • On the second day of parikarma, you come across the maximum height at Dolmala Pass where Oxygen level is very low as such don’t stop/wait there for more than 5 minutes.
  • During parikarma, you’ll come across rivers and streams, you must wash your face occasionally with cold water. Avoid drinking water from streams or rivers enroute.
  • As far as possible, try to walk. But, if you are riding a pony during parikarma, make sure that you hold it properly.
  • On the second day of parikarma, you will see several clothes lying on the rocks, please don’t touch these.
  • Guard yourself from slipping or falling to prevent fractures, sprains and muscle pulls.
  • Do not combine walking and sightseeing together. Inspect your track in front and trek slowly.
  • Travel in the group and do not leave any one behind unless escorted.

While on the Holy Mansarovar Lake:

  • Don’t take a Holy dip in Holy Mansarovar Lake while it is windy.
  • Never take a dip in Rakshas Tal (Lake) as its not auspicious.
  • If you face altitude sickness, do not proceed for parikarma because once you leave Mansarovar or Darchen and wish to come back from Parikarma due to any reason, there are no facilities available like stretcher etc. Even for Helicopter evacuation, it may take minimum 10 hrs. to a couple of days depending upon weather conditions.
  • Don’t forget to collect some stones from The Holy Lake as each stone is treated as “Shivlinga”.

General during Kailash Yatra:

If you smoke or consume alcohol, avoid it throughout the journey.

Eat as much as you could but avoid overeating.

Satellite phone being provided by us on use and pay basis is primarily to facilitate you during any emergency as such avoid making calls to your well wishers because charging facilities for satellite batteries are very limited and in case of excess usage, the satellite phone might be useless at the time of any emergency.

While in tents, make sure that it is properly zipped and your luggage (which is kept inside the tent) is not touching the tent’s outer surface otherwise in case of rain you might find water inside your tent.

Try to be in your own tents while its too windy or sunny.

While staying in the guest house, avoid using public toilets (if available) as these are very dirty. It is advisable to use open area or our own toilet tents for toilet purpose.

Travel during Kailash Yatra with the TEAM SPIRIT and help your group members in case of any need or emergency.

Please do not expect excellent vehicles in Tibet. The terrain being rough, vehicles are bound to break down but do not panic, the drivers are expert enough to repair it. Repaid may take few minutes to a couple of hours but please maintain patience as we can not leave group members behind.

As tents and other camping equipments move in trucks, it will take about 2 hours for our Swantour.com team to pitch-in tents once they reach camp site. Please have patience as truck speed can not be matched with your land cruiser’s speed.

  1. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks
    would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Thanks
