Tibet, a sacred homeland to Mount Kailash & Manasarovar Lake; is a renowned pilgrimage destination for the devotees of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bon religions and an epitome of beauty because of its diverse flora and fauna landscape, unique cultures, historical assets and Himalayan ranges and awe to the rest of the world. Hindus believe Mount Kailash to be the exclusive abode of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. For a Hindu, to make the arduous pilgrimage to Kailash and have the Darshan (divine view) of Shiva’s abode is to rinse of the sins committed knowingly are unknowingly ever in the life.
The snow-capped rocky peak-Kailash Parbat (mountain) 6714meters is also believed to be a place where founders of Tibetan Buddhism, Jainism and Bonpo religions once resided. Bonpo religious people worship this mountain as the savior of entire Tibetan people. Mount kailash is also the source to prominent rivers of Asia namely, The Brahmaputra, The Indus, The Ganges and The Sutlej. Hindus and Buddhists all over the world also worship this peak as the exact "Centre of the Universe". Devotes circumambulate the 53 km periphery of Kailash region with a belief to obtain Salvation: “Mokshya”, an ultimate escape from the chain of Birth, death and rebirth in this worldly life.
Manasarovar Lake; The center of attraction in Kailash region is Manasarovar Lake (4580m). The word “Manas” means mind or consciousness and Sarovar means Lake. Hence it is also known as the Lake of consciousness. Mount Kailash lies just beside the holy Manasarovar Lake. Rachhas Lake (Lake of Demon) is also nearby the Manasarovar which is said to contain poisonous water but the arrival of golden fish of Manasarovar neutralizes the poison purifying the water of Rachhas Lake as per ancient mythologies. Thus, people are eager to drink the holy water of Manasarovar to rinse all their curses and sins which they committed knowingly or unknowingly in their lifetime. Rotation of this Lake one to three times is believed to be the way towards the Shiva’s abode. There are others, who believe one can not only clean his soul but also secure his place in heaven after the end of mortal life. But it is not an easy task to rotate this mighty Lake. The beautiful views of the ducks swimming, priests and monks enchanting and the eight different monasteries around its shore efface entire tiredness of the pilgrims. The cascading waves of the emerald Lake are inviting you to inspect it. If you want to reach this divinities then the travel company Monterosa Treks and expedition is here at Nepal which organizes holy tour to these places every year.
