Manimahesh Yatra Tour Package
Manimahesh is the abode of Lord Shiva. It's in the Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh at a pristine height of 4,190m amidst the Himalayas. The name Mani Mahesh signifies the rare sight of Mani (a jewel) on Mahesh’s (Lord Shiva) crown. When the moon's rays reflect from it on a clear, full moon night. Another rare event is when the first rays of the sun fall on the peak of Kailash hill. Which appear as saffron tilak as seen in its reflection in the lake.
The Manimahesh yatra provides a heavenly experience of the majestic Kailash range and pristine waterfalls all through the way. Devotees consider this yatra as one of the toughest pilgrimages in India. When devotees reach there the reward of seeing the sight of the most beautiful lakein the backdrop of the snow-laden mountains is magnificent . The Manimahesh yatra is held at the lake in the months of August and September each year as it is believed to be the occasion both Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati bathe in the lake. At one side of the Manimahesh lake is a marble idol of Lord Shiva. Pilgrims take a dip in the holy water, worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati here. Then go around the circumference of the lake three times.
