Tibet Lhasa Kailash Tour

Mount Kailash Yatra - the most sacred mountain for the Hindus is located in the remote corner of the Western Tibet. It is revered as one of the most sacred pilgrim spot for Hindus, Buddhist, Jain and Bonpo - the ancient religion of Tibet. This 22,028 foot rock pyramid is the throne of the gods and is revered by the followers of these religions as the holy place where the divine takes earthly form. Pilgrims believe that by taking a single circuit tours of the sacred path their sins of a lifetime are erased. Their faith proclaims that not just the mountain's ice capped summit but the entire region is the abode of the gods: a holy land made doubly sacrosanct by the presence of nearby Lake Mansarovar, fifteen-mile-wide circle of deepest blue which is among man's most ancient holy sites. Mount Meru appears at the heart of Asian religious cosmography. It is the central pivot around which the whole of creation revolves the World Pillar and the First of Mountains.
