Holy Mt Kailash is considered as the most important pilgrimage center for Hindu. Similarly Buddhist worship Mt Kailash as DEMCHOK (Buddha in forceful form) seated on the summit of Kailash. It is also called Dharmapa-La; one version quotes the deity as a form of Shiva’s manifestation. The description of the deity is more or less like Shiva. Devi is also given a similar form like Parvati. Buddhists adore Kailash as KANG RINGPOCHE and Manasarovar as TSO MAPHAM. Guru Rinpoche (The great Indian Master PADMASAMBHAVA who introduced Buddhism) and Saint Milerapa are greatly revered here by the pilgrims. Since TANTRISM runs through the main core of Buddhism here, their customs and practices would be found running close and parallel to Hindu traditions. Like Hindus, they also consider (DOLMA (DEVI) and GAURI KUND (Thukizingbu) as holiest spots. Buddhists strongly believe that pilgrimage to this place liberates them to NIRVANA.

Holy Mt Kailash is also visited as the scenic point of view and many tourists from the world come to visit the site and enjoy the nature wonder.
