Venerated by Buddhist and Hindus all over the world as the exact “Center of Universe”, Mount Kailash is worshipped as the most sacred Mountain of Asia. It is believed to be the exclusive abode of Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati by Hindu people. There is a strong belief that completing the arduous journey to Mount Kailash and nearby Manasarovar Lake one can attain the ultimate salvation from all the known and unknown sins ever committed in life. The divine view called Kailash Darshan is to get cleansed from the clutches of curses of bad deeds during lifetime.
Tibet is a home to Mountain Kailash. Every year huge number of devotees of different religion, The Hinduism, the Buddhism, the Jainism, and the Bonpo religion (indigenous religion of Tibetan people) come to circumambulate 53 km periphery of the Sacred Mountain Kailash (6714m). Tibet offers exciting trail, fabulous monasteries, exotic view of world’s tallest peaks, diverse flora and fauna, artistic and historical monuments and houses and natural panorama with the spiritual environment appealing every human being to visit this place at least once in their lifetime.
The kailash range is also believed to be the dwelling and meditating spot of the founder of different religion which is also source to four prominent holy rivers of Asia namely, The Brahmaputra, The Ganges, The Indus and The Sutlej. It is undoubtedly the holiest abode of Hindu god, Lord Shiva. People consider this a place to earn good merits with the promise of ultimate Salvation: “Moksha”.
Manasarovar Lake; 15 meters below the sacred Mount Kailash, we can see the huge number of high lamas and devotees chanting and praying at the shore of the gigantic lake called Manasarovar (4580m). Consisting of two Sanskrit words “Manas” means mind and “Sarovar” means lake, this Manasarovar (4580m) was created to show the omnipotence of Brahma’s( the god of creator) mind as per ancient Hindu mythology. Whereas, According to Buddhist scriptures, Lord Buddha meditated nearby the lake for long time to get the knowledge to the fullest that is Enlightenment. Hence People believe in purifying their soul and physical body by drinking its emerald water and doing spiritual walk around its periphery. Ancient legend says that taking holy bath in this lake grant us to enter in the heaven after the end of this mortal life, escaping our self from the cycle of Birth-death and rebirth in this materialistic world. It takes three full days to go around its peripheries. Despite of the pain, tiredness, hunger, thirst, heat and high altitude sickness people are eager to do the holy Kora or Parikrama (circuit) of Mount Kailash and Manasarovar Lake. It is due to their strong desire of acquisition of the eternal peace in this spiritual land. The beautiful eight different Monasteries around the shore of the Lake have multiply its spirituality.
