Kailash-The Mysterious Holy Peak; Mt. Kailash (6714m), is considered a the most sacred Mountain of Asia by Hindu, Buddhist, Jains and Bonpo religion people. It is believed to be the sacred abode of the gods and goddesses and the exact center of the entire Universe. The mountain is also famous for its unique four-faced shape like that of a handle of a millstone. The cleft on its southern side intersected by a series of rocks forms a Buddhist symbol called ‘Swastika’. Mt. Kailash is referred to as “Kang Rinpoche” literally meaning 'a Sparkling mass of Snow' by the Tibetan local People. Hindu Believers relate this mountain to Mt. Meru of Hindu mythology. Some often call it as “Asthapada”. In ancient Hindu scriptures, Mt. Meru has been described as a mountain, lying in the Himalayan range, with its four faces made of four different jewels gold, crystal, ruby and lapis lazuli. Tibetan locals worship Kailash Parbat as their savior. This mountain is also the source to four prominent holy rivers of Asia, The Brahmaputra, The Indus, The Ganges and The Sutlej.
Lake Manasarovar; Derived from Sanskrit Language, “Manas” means mind and “Sarovar” means lake this Mansarovar lake is described to be the lake of Consciousness. It is situated just 15 meters below the holy Kailash Parbat. It is situated at an elevation of 4580 meters. Mansarovar Lake is so mighty that it takes at least three days to just go round its peripheries. Mansarovar also holds an important religious space among Hindu and Buddhist. Hindus describe it as a bathing lake of Hindu God, Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati. One dip into the cold water of this holy Lake is believed, by Hindus, to relinquish the soul of all its sins thus carving a straight path to heaven after death. Ancient scriptures indicate this Lake as a must-visit place for those who want to attain Salvation – the highest level of spiritual achievement. Lord Buddha is also believed to have obtained enlightenment meditating at the shore of this Lake. Many others also come to take a holy bath in the Lake with a belief that it will keep them youthful and energetic forever. The cascading waves with the beautiful scenario around enthrall the visitors with divine pleasure.
