Srikhand Mahadev Yatra

 

Hills and mountains (Parvat) have special significance within Himachal Pradesh. Mountains have traditionally been regarded as abodes of gods. Mountains are also held sacred due to their association with deities, mythology and legends. Sri Khand Mahadev is one such revered mountain peak in Himachal about which not much has been written.

Kailash Parvat is considered to be the most sacred and important as per Hinduism, Jains andShrikhand Mahadev Himachal Buddhism. In Sanskrit Kailash means crystal. According to Rudra Samhita of Shiv Maha Puran Once Lord Shiva vanished from the sight of Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu. Brahma transformed into the appearance of a swan and Vishnu transformed his appearance that of a boar with the purpose of commencing the process of creation. Brahma created the water. Afterwards an egg manifested which consisted of all the twenty four elements. This egg was enormous in size which made Brahma confused. He did penance for several years. Vishnu appeared and Brahma requested him to bring the egg to consciousness. Vishnu entered the egg. As a result Kailash Mountain, and all the seven worlds came into existence. Once Kubera The lord of wealth was doing tremendous penance. Lord Rudra became happy with his penance and appeared in front of him. When Kubera saw Lord Rudra before himself, he offered his seat. Rudra was so pleased with Kubera that he decided to stay near him. He called Vishwakarma and ordered him to conduct his abode at Kailash Mountain, so that he could live in the vicinity of his great devotee-Kubera. Vishwakarma constructed a beautiful city as per his instruction. An auspicious moment was chosen and Shiva went to live at Kailash Mountain. He was coroneted by the deities.

It is believed there are total seven Kailash mountains. The well known Mansarovar Kailash in Tibet, Adi Kailash in Pithoragarh district of Uttrakhand, Amarnath Kailash in J&K, Kinner Kailash in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh, Mani Mahesh Kailash in Chamba District of Himachal Pradesh,Sri Khand Kailash in Shimla district of Himachal Pradesh. Seventh one is believed to be Boorha Kailash andis yet to be located.

The very fact of the thought of proceeding to Sri Khand Kailash is a call from within. Thousands of sages, ordinary mortals, and even the Gods have submerged in blissful trance at the very Bight of this divine grandeur. It is the SWAYAMBU – the self-created one. This point is considered as the point of spiritual renaissance. The entire area echoes with spiritual vibrations. Even the agnostics shall discover new Balance amidst that fathomless serenity. One has to experience it. The common belief is that those who are ordained only could be there.

Sri Khand Kailash is situated at 18500 feet above sea level. It is usually undertaken to coincide with the Ashada Poornima or, full moon day of June to July) as per the Vikrami calendar.It can be accessed from Bathad, Gushani, Jeori and Jaon. The easiest and most travel starts from Jaon Village of Kullu district which is 167 Km. from Shimla and can be reached by Car, bus or bikes. Jaon is the starting point of this trek, where temple of goddess Shakti is situated. It is a 64-74-km app. two-way track passing through dense forests, water streams, sprawling meadows and lofty mountains. The climb is difficult and offers a panoramic view. 3 Km. from Jaon there is village called Singh gad, which was named after a brave man who dared to live their and established a village. Singh gad is the last habitat of civilization on this route and Sri Khand Kailash is a three full days trek from this place.

Read the second part

This is the first article of the three part travelogue. Pawan Thakur is a trekker from Shimla and has done the Srikhand Kailash trek 8  times. To put in his own words, he is never satiated with the magnificence of this entire area.

        Dear Shri Pawan Thakurji,
        Liked your article – 3 parts on “bhagwan shrikhand mahadev”. I am planning the yatra @ 23rd Aug to 30th Aug 2012.Is it possible to do it solo -without tents , but with sleepping bag and other gear?
        Do you know the dates in Aug 2012 when Kinner Kaialsh yatra starts (Phuleg) so that local help (food and accomodation) is available on the way of the Kinner Parikrama?
        Regards.

        Dear Pawan Ji,

        Thanks for your valuable guidance. Your tips will be highly useful to me.

        My plan has changed a bit. Instead of going during the official yatra period i.e. 16th July-25th July, I am planning to go during the 1st week of August.
        1) Is this yatra life threatening? Has anybody died during this yatra?
        2) Is it safe to go during that time of the year?
        3) Since official yatra will be over by Aug, do I need to carry my own tent?
        4) Do I need to do a guide at the starting point: Jaon/Bagipur village?

        Thanks,
        maheep.

          1) This yatra may be life threatening as this is most difficult trekking route.Few people has died in this yatra
          2) It is not advisable for new person like you to travel at that time.
          3) One must go during Yatra period so as to avoid many problems which may arise during yatra.

    This is a humble request to all readers that Sri Khand Mahadev Yatra is not a easy Yatra.Therefore everyone willing to go on Yatra must consider hard and difficult efforts needed to survive there. As of now this year two young boys has been died, actual reason of death will be revealed after postmortem,but it seems biggest factor will be lack of oxygen and difficult situations of survival there. Boys who died were Sunil Kumar age 19 of Nirmond village of Himachal Pradesh & Abhishek aged 26 years from Lucknow (U.P.).

    Hence it is requested to all beings that :

    1. Please do not take this Yatra casually
    2. Do not use liquor & other intoxicated or narcotic substances.
    3.Climb gradually by taking night halts and acclimatizing your body.
    4. Move in groups not alone
    5.Visit in official Yatra period only, so that one can get any help needed.
    6.There are not any provisions made by Administration yet so carefully plan your Yatra.

    Dear Mr. Pawan Thakur,
    Jai Bholenath, Har Har Mahadev,

    I have read your article regarding Shrikhand Mahadev. It was very wonderful. I am fully inspired from your scripting to go to Shrikhand Mahadev.

    I went to Kasol, Kullu District in May, 2005 but I don’t know about this. Actually I was there as a Resource Person for Astronomy for Sarpass 2005 Trek. I had also trekked Sarpass in 2005. The experience was amazing.

    But, I tell you that I am a great bhakt of Lord Shiva. I wish to go Shrikhand Mahadev atleast for one in a lifetime.

    Can you tell me how much expediture it needed. I am living in Vadodara, Gujarat. And can you guide me that from where I will get taxi for Jaon Village? and can you tell me approximate expenditure allover.

    Please give me reply on akshaykumar_bhatt@yahoo.co.in ASAP (As Soon As Possible), so I can invest and go for 2012 batch.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Har Har Mahadev……..

      Dear Mr. Govilkar

      Greetings of the day !

      Please note that this is an extremely difficult trekk therefore one must
      consult a good doctor before planning for this trek.This trekk  needs great physical strengths, breathing
      practices and mental toughness.

      I request you also to please work out properly before thinking to plan for
      this Yatra as this is life threatening trek, don’t go by my scripting
      only you have to consider your daily routine and physical stamina with
      the help of a qualified Doctor.Please carefully read all three parts of
      article and each and every comment posted here as this will give you
      clear Idea.Be Practical don’t be emotional.

      ”’Main itana to jarur keh sakta hoon ki meri ab tak ki Sri Khand Kailash ki 6 yatraaon main se ek bhee sulabh aur aaramdayak nahee thi, Vaise bhee bhagwaan se juri hue chize itanee aaram se nahee dekhi ja sakati , inke darshan ki anubhuti avashay hee alaukik hoti hai ”’

      May Bholey Baba bless you !

    I have done yatra of Shrikhand Mahadev last year but want to know. Is yatra can be posible in September month as well?.
    Please enlight the way.

      September will not be possible as the administration does not allow the yatra beyond the stipulated dates.
