Mount Kailash Manasarovar Tour
1795

Mount Kailash mountain is situated in the far west corner of Tibet. It is considered to be the most sacred peak of Asia by four major religions: Bön, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. It rises up to 6,638 meters high, looks like a symmetrical cone-shaped rock capped by pure crystal-like ice all the time, is echoed in various mythological and literary works. Mt Kailash lies near Lake Manasarovar and Lake Rakshastal and is the source of four of the longest rivers in Asia (The Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali).

Hindu pilgrims believe that Mount Kailash is the home of their God Shiva and Buddhists consider it as the centre of the Universe-the Axis Mundi in Asian cosmology. Hundreds of pilgrims travel every year from all over the Indian sub-continent, Nepal and Tibet to circumambulate this mountain on foot. They believe it  is a holy ritual that brings them good fortune.
