But it no longer remains only a pilgrimage destination. Every year hundreds of adventurers gratify by its natural beauties and geographical rareness.
Mt.Kailash, Kang Rinpoche in Tibetan, is situated at a height of 6714 m. (22156 ft.) above sea level. For four Major religions of the world, i.e. for Buddhism, Jainism, Bompo (a religion prior to Buddhism in Tibet) and Hinduism, Mount Kailash is the spot of utmost reverence. For the Buddhists, Kailash is the center point of the universe. For the Jains, Kailash is the Mount Ashtapada, a very holy place of pilgrimage. For the Bompo followers, Kailash is the nine-faced swastika mountain and is constantly emanating great power. For the Hindus Kailash is the Sumeru Parvat, the spiritual center of the world around which all the earthly powers revolve. If there are heaven abodes on earth, Mt. Kailash & Mansarovar Lake is to be treasured as the most celestial. Its flames give birth to four great Asian rivers the Indus, Bramaputra, Ganges and Sutlej.
Tibetan Buddhists believe Kang Rinpoche, which means Precious Snow Mountain, is a natural mandala representing the Buddhist cosmology on the earth and the Jains believe this is the place where their religion’s founder was spiritually awakened.
