Mount Kailash, situated in the Kailash Range, in the western part of the Tibetan Plateau on the borders of China, Nepal & India.

Situated at an altitude of 6,714 m (22,028 ft) and located close to Lake Manasarovar and Lake Rakshatal. Mount Kailash is considered sacred in four religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bon.

According to Hindu Mythology, it is recognized as the adobe of Lord Shiva, who resided there with his consort goddess Parvati and their children.

“Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt. Kailash wipes out the sins of a lifetime, 108 Parikramas guarantees enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Mansarovar Lake delivers pilgrim to Brahma’s paradise and a drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundreds of lifetimes.”
