Manimahesh Lake is a high altitude lake (elevation 13,390 ft) situated close to the Manimahesh Kailash Peak in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas. The religious significance of this lake is next to that of the Lake Manasarovar in Tibet.
The lake is the venue of a highly revered pilgrimage trek undertaken during the month of August/September corresponding to the month of Bhadon according to Hindu calendar, on the eighth day of the New Moon period. It is known as the ‘Manimahesh Yatra’. The Government of Himachal Pradesh has declared it as a state-level pilgrimage.
