1st day of Kailash Parikrama
The earlier groups which performed the yatra from Darchen proceeedd to Quhu stayed there on the banks of Manasarovar and performed the yagna and returned back to Darchen and proceeded to the holy Circumbulation of Kailash. But this group straight away proceeded for the parikrama of Kailash and then on the return journey satayed for two nights on the banks of Manasarovar. They were not able to visit Asthapath.

From Darchen one gets to see only the sunmmit of the South face of Kailash. From Yamdwar one get the fulll view of teh South face along with Ganesh and Nandi
The land above yamdwar is considered holy land. So yamdwar is a portal to the holyland. The yatris enter into yamdwar and worship the Lord and then proceed on the parikrama.
