Few tourist travel to this remote western corner of Tibet. For most that do, there is only one destination in mind - Mount Kalaish. From time immemorial this area has been sacred by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and the followers of Bon, Tibet’s indigenous religion. Even today, pilgrims from all over the Himalayan region travel to Kailash to perform arduous Parikrama or Kora, often prostrating themselves the entire way. Ancient cosmography identifies Kailash with the mighty mountain Sumeru, the central peak of the world.

To Buddhist, the “Father Mountain” represents the means to enlightenment; Lake Manasarovar, the “mother principle,” represents transcendental consciousness. Hindus consider Kailash to be the throne of Lord Shiva, one of the three principle gods of the Hindu pantheon, whose long, matted hair forms the holy Ganges River. As a Bon center it is the soul of the country and assures protection for all Tibetans. Kailash is a glittering snow-crystal towering above the Tibetan Plateau like a beckoning jewel, visible from miles away. Manasarovar is famous as one of the highest lakes in the world. Mt. Kailash is considered the power place of Shiva’s head Chakra and thus the manifestation of the illusory wheel of sensory emanation. Since Kailash is Mount Sumeru its summit is considered the heaven for higher level Gods, it is also the five Buddha's heaven.
