Kailas Tour from Simikot Hilsa

Mount Kailas, the home of God SHIVA. The Kailas Barbat  lies at the center of an area that is the key to the drainage system of the Tibetan plateau, and from which issues four of the great rivers of the Indian subcontinent: the Karnali, which feeds into the Ganges (south), the Indus (north), the Sutlej (west) and the Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsangpo, east). Mt Kailash, at 6714 m, is not the mightiest of the mountains in the region, but, with its hulking shape - like the handle of a millstone, according to Tibetans - and its year-long snow-capped peaks, it stands apart from the pack. The mountain is known in Tibetan as Kang Rinpoche, or "Precious Jewel of Snow". Kailas has long been an object of worship for four major religions. For the Hindus, Kailash is regarded as the center of the universe and the domain of Shiva, the Destroyer and Transformer. To the faithful Buddhist, Kailas is the abode of Demchok, a wrathful manifestation of Sakyamuni thought to be an equivalent of Hinduism's Shiva. The Jains of India also revere the mountain as the site at which the first of their saints was emancipated. And in the ancient Bon religion of Tibet, Kailas was the sacred nine stories Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Shenrab alighted from heaven.

Manasarovar Lake- Mansarova lies about 20 km (12.43 mi.) southeast of Mt. Kailas. It means 'Invincible Jade Lake' in Tibetan. The name originates from a story that Buddhism wins a victory against Bon in a religious match beside the lake. The lake is the same 'Jade Pool of the Western Kingdom' described by the high monk Xuanzang of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) in his Westward Diary.
