Mount Kailash

Nature At Its Best

Not only world’s most holy place, but Mount Kailash is also the least visited place by people as this is a great mass of black rock soaring 22,000 feet above the ground. This is supremely sacred site of the four different religions all over the world which lies in the western Tibet. However only few thousand pilgrims come to see this great mountain Kailash making it rarely visited site and the travel extremely difficult because of the remote area without much access to vehicles. The weather is usually very cold and can unexpectedly become deceitful.

Kailash Mountain existed long before even the Hindu myth existed, it was there long before Mahabharata and the Great Ramayana was written. The cosmologies and origin myths of each of these religions speak of Kailash as the mythical Mt. Meru, the Axis Mundi, the center and birth place of the entire world. Kailash is considered to be holy that wads embedded in the myths of the ancient Asia that was perhaps the sacred place of another era or civilization that existed long ago. Different religions have different interpretations of Mount Kailash and its importance. For Hindus it is believed to be a place for Lord Shiva to meditate and practice Yoga poses and smoke Ganja. Whereas for Jains, the mountain is called Astapada and they believe it to be the place where Rishaba, the first of the twenty-four Tirthankaras attained liberation. The Buddhists have their own interpretation which implies Lord Buddha to have magically visited Kailash in the fifth century. Tibetan Buddhists call the mountain Kang Rimpoche, the 'Precious One of Glacial Snow', and regard it as the dwelling place of Demchog (also known as Chakrasamvara) and his consort, Dorje Phagmo.

Pilgrims with the significance respectively come over Kailash and take Parikramas and Koras which take around three days with hopes of getting extra psychic powers. The journey is nevertheless very difficult and few people can only make it every year.
