YatraManimahesh is a high altitude lake of Himachal Pradesh. The lake is located at an elevation of 4,080 metres (13,390 ft), quite close to Manimahesh Kailash Peak in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalaya. According to the incident published in 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. After Mansarovar Lake in Tiber, the Mani Mahesh lake is the most sacred lake. During September and October, the lake attracts many pilgrims as this is the time when 'Manimahesh Yatra' commences.
