Great mass of black rock soaring to over 22,000 feet, Mt. Kailash has the unique distinction of being the world's most venerated holy place. Hindus believe Mt.Kailash to be the abode of Lord Shiva. For four major religions of the world Buddhism, Jainism, Bonpo (a religion prior to Buddhism in Tibet) and Hinduism, Mount Kailash is the sacred place of utmost reverence. For the Buddhists, Kailash is the center point of the universe. For the Jains, Kailash is the Mount Ashtapada, a very holy place of pilgrimage. For the Bonpo followers, Kailash is the nine-faced swastika mountain and is constantly emanating great power. For the Hindus Kailash is the Sumeru Parvat, the throne of Lord Shiva and the spiritual center of the world around which all the earthly powers revolve. If there are heavenly abodes on earth, Mt. Kailash and Manasarovar Lake are to be treasured as the most celestial. This region gives birth to four great Asian rivers the Indus, Brahmaputra, Ganges and Sutlej. "As the dew is dried up the morning sun light, so are the sins of human beings cleansed up by the sight of the Himalayas, where Lord Shiva lived and where the Ganga falls from the foot of Vishnu like the slender thread of a lotus flower. There are no mountains like the Himalayas, for in them are Holy Mt. Kailash and lake Manasarovar." We take you to the most fascinating Kora (Circumambulation) of Kailash on foot, crossing the high pass Dolma La 5636 m (18600 ft) above sea level. So as you trek around Mt. Kailash you enjoy the grand views on both sides of the valley and Mt. Kailash from all directions. We also take you for the parikrama (circumambulation) of Manasarovar Lake by jeep and visit some of the Gompas and holy site on the shore of the lake.. We invite you to join the journey of a lifetime experience.
