Description

Mt. Kailash alias ‘Jewels of snow’ as the Tibetians call it, is the most sacred mountain in Asia.

The mountain is believed to be an abode of Lord Shiva by the Hindus. Buddhist, Jains and the Bon, Tibet’s indigenous religion also venerate it.

For thousands of years the Kailash region is the sources of the Ganges, the Sutlej, the Indus and the Brahamaputra River, which also drains the vast of Tibetan plateau. Hindus declare it to be Lord Shiva’s throne. According to the legends, river ganges emanated from one of the strands of Shiva’s long matted hair. Buddhist cosmography identifies it with the mighty Mt. Sumeru, the central peak of the world. Jains identify the Kailash area with the place of their first saint’s spiritual liberation. As a Bon centre, Mt. Kailash is the soul of universe and assures perpetuity and protection for all the Tibetan people.
