    All about the Kailash Tour.

    Mt. Kailash also known as Sumeru Parbat in Hindu epic is believed to be the most sacred mountain in the world and the embodiment of mystical Mt. Meru that is in the scenically rich area of western Tibet allowing you to enjoy the views of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Nepal from its peak.

    Mt. Kailash holds an important religious significance and includes the two turquoise-blue, pristine high-altitude lakes of Mansarovar and Rakshesa which is regarded holy by followers of several religions. To Hindus, Kailash is the abode of Shiva and nearby Manasarobar Lake, the soul of Brahma. Tibetans calls this mountain as Kailash Kang Rimpoche. Jains worship it as Mt Ashtapada, from where religion’s founder, Rishabanatha, achieved spiritual liberation. And the followers of Bon-Po, the ancient pre-Buddhist shamanistic religion of Tibet, revere Kailash as the soul of Tibet.

    The most unique feature of this mountain contributing to the mystical aspects of Kailash is that four sacred rivers begin from here namely Karnali; a major tributary of the Ganges, Brahmaputra, Indus and Sutlej. Nature lovers can encounter numerous species of birds and flora and fauna. This trek provides a spiritually enriching, naturally and truly rewarding journey of a lifetime.
