Manimahesh is one of Panch Kailash Yatra. Manimahesh is a holy place for Hindus. Manimahesh is also known as Chamba Kailash. The religious significance of Manimahesh lake is next to that of the Mansarovar lake.

The Manimahesh Lake is situated close to Holy Kailash peak which is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva. Manimahesh lake is located at an altitude of 4,080 m above sea level.

Manimahesh Lake is the venue of a highly revered pilgrimage trek undertaken during a specific period of the year. Lord Shiva is the presiding deity of this pilgrimage. He is believed to reside in Kailash. A rock formation in the shape of a Shivling on Kailash is considered to be the manifestation of Lord Shiva.

The snowfield at the base of the mountain is called Shiva’s Chaugan by the local people.

According to the mythological books, the lake was created by Lord Shiva after he married Goddess Parvati. It is also believed that Lord Shiva performed penance here for seven hundred years, and the water started flowing from his tangled hair which later took the form of a lake.

In the periphery of the lake, now there is a marble image of Lord Shiva, which is worshipped by pilgrims. The image is called the ‘Chaumukha’. The lake and its surroundings present an impressive view. There is also a small temple in the shikhara style on the periphery of the lake. A brass image of Lakshmi Devi known as ‘Mahishasuramardini’ is deified in the temple.

And thus, the trek to the Manimahesh lake has been termed as Manimahesh Yatra and the state government has also declared it as a state-level pilgrimage.

Manimahesh lake is approached from different routes. Pilgrims from Lahaul-Spiti come through Kugti pass. Some from Kangra and Mandi come via Kawarsi or Jalsu passes. The easiest route is from Chamba and runs through Bharmaur-Hadsar.

Beyond Hadsar, the pilgrims have to trek for 13 kms to reach Manimahesh Lake. Dhancho, Sundrasi & Gaurikund are the main stations that come on the way from Hadsar to Manimahesh Lake.

For the trekkers the journey to Manimahesh Kailash commences from the month of MidM-ay and continues till October end. It is an easy-moderate level trek where beginner-level trekkers can also participate.

We are the most experienced & trustworthy operator of the ‘Panch Kailash Yatra‘, which includes the Kailash Mansarovar, Adi Kailash & Om Parvat, Kinnaur KailashShrikhand Mahadev Kailash, Manimahesh Yatra and Manimahesh Kailash Parikrama.

Manimahesh trek is a high-altitude trek. The hike reaches a height of over 13,500 feet. There is a significant altitude climb, from Bharmour to Manimahesh, which requires strong lungs.

The Manimahesh trek necessitates a high level of cardiovascular fitness. And you might be wondering how to strengthen your lungs. To begin, go for a jog every day. Begin jogging slowly and gradually increase your speed. As a result, cardiovascular endurance exercises are highly vital for making your lungs stronger than before.

The Workouts

  • Walking with a 5kg rucksack strapped on your back is a terrific way to shape your legs and body. It aids in the burning of calories, the reduction of excess weight, and the strengthening of your body.
  • For high ascents, stair climbing is the finest workout. Include it in your training routine.
  • Jogging can help you live longer by strengthening your lungs and improving your lifetime. It’s a high-intensity aerobic activity that necessitates a lot of oxygen. This is an excellent activity for protecting weight and maintaining good health.
  • Squats are the most effective functional exercise for improving balance. Legs, thighs, hips, and hamstrings are also strengthened.
  • Pull-ups, push-ups, sprints, mountain climber, burpee, jumping jacks, and 30-second plank (2-3 sets each).
  • Pushing your body upstairs after stair climbing is another fantastic cardiovascular exercise. This is often considered to be the most effective workout for improving strength and power.
  • Finally, remember to pamper your body with some breathing exercises, Yoga, and Meditation.
  • For the best outcome, eat well, stay hydrated, and get enough rest.

Take proper rest and sleep before coming to Manimahesh Kailash Trek.
