Mt. Kailash, location in far west corner of Tibet is the most sacred peak of Asia. The beauty of the 6700- meter high Mount Kailash, that looks like a symmetrical cone shaped rock capped by pure crystalline ice all the time, is echoed in various mythological mythological and literary works.
Dominating the north of the Himalayan Barrier with its spectacular view, the mount kailash is equally venerated as the holiest pilgrimage site by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bon-Po. Tibetans regard this mountain as the manifestation of Mount Meru,”thr navel of the earth” where founder of bon religion, Tonpa Shenrab, is believed to have descended from heaven.
The Hindus are abode of Lord Shiva, Buddhists are as the abode of Samvara and Jain are as a sacred site where their prophet , Rishaba attained spiritual enlightenment. With its four sheer wals, distinctive snow-capped peak, and valleys interspersed with brightly-clad Tibetans pilgrims ,Mount kailash or kang Rimpoche(`Precious snow-peak’, as know by the Tibetans) is an awe-ispring sight.Four greate rivers of Asia: the Karnali, the Indus, the Sutleg and the Brahmaputra(Tsangpo) originate from here.
