“If you can really be with Kailash even for a few moments, life will never again be the same for you.
It is a phenomenon beyond all human imagination.”
Human beings down the ages and across the world have always been drawn to mountains. In recent times, men have climbed the greatest peaks and attempted to conquer them. But this is not a conquest that can last. At those dizzying heights and in those inhospitable climes, man can never conquer. But he can surrender. And it is this realization that has led people of diverse backgrounds, from prehistory to the modern age, to behold mountains with a certain reverence.
Of all the high places on earth, Mount Kailash holds special significance. Distinctively marked and dramatically centered between two smaller peaks, Mount Kailash stands prominently in a remote southwestern corner of Tibet. The power of this awesome peak has since time immemorial, gripped the imagination of people.
The Kailash Manasarovar is probably the most significant of all pilgrimages and is considered by many as the highest point of their life’s experience. Considered the spiritual center of the Universe by five religions – Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Bon – sacred Mount Kailash and ethereal Lake Manasarovar are the subjects of innumerable myths and legends. Adi yogi Shiva, Buddha, the Jain Theerthankars, all have played a part in imparting a divine mystique to this place.
Manasarovar lies at a height of 15,015 ft and is situated 20 km away from Kailash. It is the most beautiful and sacred lake in the world. Believed to house the Kalpavriksha, the wish-fulfilling Divine Tree, the lake is considered to be the source of all Creation. This blue and emerald green lake has been attributed with healing properties.
