Mount Kailash which stands
prominently in a remote south-west corner of Tibet at the altitude of
22,028 feet is the holiest of all holy peaks. Believed to be the axis of
the earth, Mt. Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva and Kang Ringboche of
Tibetans Buddhism. In ancient period, it took years for sages and saints
to reach Mt. Kailash for salvation (Mukti), and above that it was
inaccessible for common people. But now because of modern transport
system, the path to salvation is no longer an isolated dream. Now it
doesn't take more than three weeks to materialise your much awaited life
time dream. As sacred scripture says the path to divinity is always
difficult, your trip to Mt. Kailash will be adventurous making you longing
for Mt. Kailash. The trip begins with a scenic drive to Zhangmu in Tibet
crossing Nepalese border. After Zhangmu comfortable Japanese Landcruiser
made for rough and tough road will take you to the holy Lake Mansarovar
and Mt. Kailash for the pilgrimage circumbulation which is also called
kora. You will be blessed with holy bath and parikrama to achieve your
ultimate spiritual goal before returning back to Kathmandu.
