Kailash is believed to be the holiest mountain in the world to those of Hindu, Bon and Jain beliefs. It has proven to be a great enigma for adventurers throughout the ages, and for modern day travelers it offers an adventure unparalleled to any other modern-day adventure on this planet Earth.
This holy mountain is part of the Trans-Himalaya in far western Tibet, near the source of four of the longest rivers in Asia: The Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali River. To top of its magical connections, two powerful and holy lakes are found very near Kailash- Mansarovar Lake and Skanda Sagar.
The locals refer to Kailash as Kang Rinpoche, or ‘Precious Snow Mountain’, but we can say that this mountain is precious in many ways to those of many faiths. For the Hindus, Kailsh is the abode of Lord Shiva, and a symbol of his power.
