Lhasa Ali Holy Kailash Tour and Trek


A Popular Mount Kailash (6638m) is one of the holy mountains in South Asia, believed to be the abode of Hindu Lord Shiva. Mount Kailash can be considered as a centre of four religions--Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and the followers of Bon Pa religion. However, Kailash receives only few pilgrims every year because of its remote location. For followers of Hindu religion, Mount Kailash is the place where Lord Shiva resides with his wife and Goddess Parvati along with other helpers.  Likewise, Tibetans revere Mount Kailash as Khang Rimpoche (Paths of the Soul), while the followers of ancient Bon Pa religion take Kailash to be the soul of Tibet. Similarly, Mount Kailash is Mount Ashtapada for the followers of Jain religion as they believe their saint Rishabanatha achieved spiritual liberation at Mount Kailash.
