Kailash Yatra -
An Introduction Thousands of Hindu religious people come to visit the sacred Kailash Parvat and Mansarovar Lake, situated in the China's Autonomous Region of Tibet, every year from around the globe and neighboring country India via Nepal. Our team accompanied by Indo-British diasporas' Hindus are resting since reaching friendship Bridge on their way ahead after crossing the Dolalghat bridge via the Arniko Highway and viewing the sceneries around the Sunkoshi and Bhotekoshi river bank after having their breakfast. We reached Zhangmu, the first town of Tibet, known as Khasa by the Nepalese. Our Nepali guide crossed the border and visited the Nepali Immigration Office there, in order to obtain the visiting permit and required travel documents. All the pilgrims accompanying the entourage, showing their papers at the Tibet Immigration office, are traveling ahead watching the glittering scenes of Zhangmu town. On the way to Nyalam from Zhangmu, the landscapes, hill, hillocks, woods, steeps, terrains attract the visitors. The Indo-British visitors traveling with us are observing the town after reaching and keeping their luggage in the hotel. Due to reaching Nyalam on a single day from Katmandu, the whole night is spent here. The visitors traveling with us are seen resting and enjoying after taking vegetarian food. The cooking staffs traveling with us are seen to prove their expert knowledge with our guests enjoying the culinary food. On the next day, the practice of traveling 3-4 hrs uphill around Nyalam, sight-seeing and coming down are done in order to prevent acute mountain sickness. Our team is seen traveling up and waving hands with pleasure sitting on the stone. While climbing up to Nyalam, the scenes of fluttering colorful flags and festoons hung there for peace are seen. Tasty delicious varieties of Parotha (flat breads), pickle and a sip of hot tea is quite soothing here. The place Nyalam is 3700m high above the sea level. This is the second city on our Kailash Tour. The inhabitants here are all of Tibetan origin. Visitors traveling up seem to be enjoying alongside the hill, hillocks, glittering Himalayas and silvery brooks and brooklets. These Gujrati pilgrims are dancing, singing and enjoying, representing their own Gujrati culture. Singing and dancing are the characteristics of the pilgrims, and on this type of journey, the hymns are sung for wishing the worlds peace and the like. By doing this much, the probability of having altitude sickness is almost prevented. The Nyalam town is seen down from here. How beautiful are the scenes above the Nyalam town! Truly, the breath-taking scenes of the Himalayas do quench the thirst while walking up and down the steep trails. Pilgrims are preparing to go to Sanga from Nylam and some are even seen boarding a jeep.
