Where the heavens meet the heart, Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be experienced. Being a place of pilgrimage, it attracts Hindus and non Hindus from all around the world. The Mt. Kailash is a sacred mountain of much spiritual significance to followers of four of the great religions of Asia: the Buddhists, Hindus, Jains, and the Bönpo. Mt Kailash is also known to give peace of mind and has beautiful scenery with many extraordinary views. The mountain lies near Lake Mansarovar and Lake Rakshastal in Tibet. Located at 6,714 meters (22,022 ft.), Kailash is a glittering snow dome towering above the Tibetan Plateau of Himalayas like a beckoning jewel providing an extraordinary view visible from miles away. Four of the greatest rivers of South Asia, the Indus, Sutlej, Karnali and the Brahmaputra (known as the Yarlung Zangpo in Tibet), originate from around Mount Kailash. Ancient cosmography identifies Mount Kailash as Mt. Sumeru, the Spiritual centre of the Universe. To Buddhists, Mt. Kailash is the, “father mountain”, representing the means to enlightenment, and Lake Mansarovar as the “mother principle,” representing transcendental consciousness. Hindus consider Mt Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva with his consort Goddess Parvati, one of the three principle gods of the Hindu pantheon, whose long, matted hair forms the holy Ganges River. As a Bon centre, Kailash enjoys great popularity in the folk religion of Tibet; it is also the soul of the country and assures protection for all Tibetans. The Jain religion, which arose in India around the sixth century b c, also sees Kailash as a spiritually significant peak.
