A peak in the Kailash range forming a part of the Trans-Himalaya in Tibet, Mount Kailash lies near the source of some of the longest rivers in Asia. The rivers include the Indus River, the Sutlej River (a major tributary of the Indus River), the Brahmaputra River, and the Karnali River (a tributary of the River Ganga). A sacred place for religions like Bön, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism, Mount Kailash lies near the Manasarovar Lake and Lake Rakshastal.
The name of the holy mountain derives from the word kelāsa, which means “crystal” in Sanskrit. The mountain is also known as the “water peak” or the “river peak”, connoting the mountain’s status as the source of the mythical Lion, Horse, Peacock and Elephant Rivers. In fact, the Indus, Yarlung Tsangpo/Dihang/Brahmaputra, Karnali and Sutlej all begin in the Kailash-Lake Manasarovar region. The Kailash Manasarovar Tours lets you experience the marvelous mountainous scenery of the land and lets you walk on paths that are brimming with the beauty of the Himalayan landscape. According to the Hindu historical legend, Lord Shiva- the Destroyer of evil, resides at the summit of Mount Kailash, where he sits in a state of perpetual meditation along with his wife Pārvatī. Every year, thousands make a pilgrimage to Kailash, following a tradition going back thousands of years. Pilgrims of several religions believe that circumambulating Mount Kailash on foot is a holy ritual that will bring good fortune. According to all religions that revere the mountain, setting foot on its slopes is a dire sin. It is a popular belief that the stairways on Mount Kailash lead to heaven.
Lake Manasarovar is also considered very sacred by Tibetans, Buddhist, Hindus, and Jains. According to legend, Lake Manasarovar is the lake in which a great Tibetan monk saw the letters “Aha”, “Kha”, “Mha”. These three initials helped the search team to locate the current the 14th Dalia Lama of Tibet. The word “Manasarovar” originates from Sanskrit, which is a combination of the words “Mana” and “Sarovar,” with mana meaning mind and Sarovar meaning lake. According to Hinduism, the lake was first created in the mind of the Lord Brahma after which it manifested on Earth.
