Mt.Kailash Tour

MT. KAILASH TOUR

In the far west of Tibet is mount Kailash, the most sacred mountain in Asia, which is venerated by Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and the followers of the ancient Bon religion. Kailash is an important site for Tibetan and Indian pilgrims who make a 53 km. circuit, or Kora, around the mountain. This circumambulation, clockwise for Buddhist and Hindus and anti-clockwise for Bon followers, is said to erase the sins of a lifetime. The mountain itself is 6714 meters high and with its sheer walls and snow-capped peak is an astounding sight. Our tours to Tibet enable you to explore this city of charms & feel the holy spirit of this hidden plateau.  Mt. Kailash (6714m) or Mt. Meru is said to be the center of the universe or ‘navel of the world’ Mt. Kailash is described with reverence as the abode of Lord Shiva who is revered as the destroyer and transformer of the Hindu Triad and his divine consort Parvati. This extraordinary mountain is regarded as the 'heart of the universe' by all Religions. For Hindus, Mt. Kailash is abode of Shiva and the nearby Mansarovar is the soul of Brahma, Tibetans call Kailash Kang Rimpoche and followers of Bon-Po, the ancient pre- Buddhist shamanistic religion of Tibet, regard Kailas as the soul of Tibet, Jains worship it as Mt Ashtapada, the peak from which the religion’s founder, Rishabanatha, achieved spiritual liberation.
