Kailash Manasarovar Yatra with Isha Sacred Walks – A Unique Spiritual Trip

If you have been thinking of a leisure travel to kill your stress and rejuvenate your body, mind and also your soul, nothing could beat the experience of a Kailash Manasarovar Yatra with Sadhguru. A trip to Kailash and Manasarovar is a pilgrimage, a tour and a trek of a lifetime. With Isha Sacred Walks, a team of skilled and trained volunteers of the Isha Foundation founded by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, your 12-14 day Kailash Manasarovar Yatra will help you gain a healing and a spiritually uplifting experience.

Fondly referred to as Sadhguru by millions of his followers and admirers worldwide, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev is an Indian yogi, author and the head of Isha Foundation in Coimbatore, India. His noble activities in the field of spirituality, education, and environment have earned him the title of the most significant Guru (the one who knows) in India and beyond.

Isha Sacred Walks has taken hundreds of pilgrims to Kailash and Manasarovar in the last one and a half decades and all our fellow travellers will unanimously agree that they returned from the trip completely transformed.

While several religions of the world consider a trip to Kailash and Manasarovar as the ultimate pilgrimage of a lifetime, according to the Hindu legend, Kailash Parvat (Mount Kailash) is considered the abode of Lord Shiva, and the holy Manasarovar lake is a beautiful creation of the Lord Brahma’s mind (manas in Sanskrit).

Experience the natural beauty of the awe-inspiring Himalayas – the majestic and powerful Mount Kailash, the spiritual library of the universe, breath-taking freshwaters of the Manasarovar lake, and what’s more, get an in-depth orientation into the spiritual aspect of life while you get the blessings of Sadhguru in a Darshan during this journey.
