It is trusted that scrubbing down in this lake will wash away all transgressions. You can clean up before parikrama (circumambulation) of Kailash just as perform puja and hawan on the banks of the lake. At that point, we take a drive to achieve Yama Dwar, the beginning stage of parikrama. Non-parikrama amasses drives back to Darchen after Puja while parikrama aggregate starts their trek to visit North Face of Mt. Kailash and Dirapuk. The trekking is by means of Dolma La Pass, the most noteworthy and hardest go of the whole voyage. You get the chance to visit Gauri Kund, a sacred lake situated past the Dolma La Pass.
