Holy Mount Kailas is one of the most popular ultimate Hindu pilgrimage sites in Himalayan region dedicated to Lord Shiva where every devotee wants to go. Mount Kailas, which is believed to have been formed 30 million years ago when Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most revered places in the Himalayas.
Mt. Kailas, (6,714m) high peak is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, completely within Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with splendid beauty, with 4 great faces. It is the spiritual center for four great religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. For the Hindus Mount Kailas is the earthly manifestation of Mt. Meru, their spiritual centre of the universe, described as a fantastic 'world pillar' 84,000 miles high, around which all else revolves, its roots in the lowest hell and its summit kissing the heaven. On the top live their most revered God, Shiva, and his consort Parvati. For the Jains (an Indian religious group), Kailas is the site where their first diviner achieved enlightenment. For the older, more ancient religion of Bon, it is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven.
Spread out on the Tibetan plateau beside Mount Kailas is the giant lake of shifting colors - Lake Mansarovar. Brahma, the creator, had a mind (‘Maan’) for the creation of a Lake (Sarovar in Sanskrit), hence its name. A pilgrimage to Mount Kailas and a dip in the Mansarovar is believed to bring about salvation (Moksha) and washed away all the sins of lifetimes. Over the centuries pilgrims have constantly journey immense distances to achieve enlightenment or cleanse themselves of sin, braving enormous distances, particularly harsh weather and bandit attacks. People have been visiting Kailas - Mansarovar for centuries. It used to be very hard journey in the past; today We can bring you there with help of Land cruisers via Kathmandu.
