Who should take this Yatra?

06 days of Mount Kailash yatra without Parikrama is short and suitable for those who cannot walk and who have very limited time. Kailash Kora takes a lot of your physical endurance and you need a strong mentality to perform well. We know that all of the pilgrims are not physically strong due to various health issues and the ability to walk for long distances in a strenuous route over an altitude of 5000m is not an easy task.

If you are among those pilgrims, we respect your endurance to visit Mount Kailash from a distance which also needs a very precise mindset and ability to accept the altitude. You should definitely approach Kailash and Mansarovar and pray for prosperity and well-being from Yamadwar.
