Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

Place : North of the Himalayan barrier, wholly within Tibet.

Significance : A Sacred Pilgrimage Centre

Mount Kailash at a height of 6,740 mtrs. is located to the north of the Himalayan barrier, entirely within Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with majestic beauty and 4 great faces. Mount Kailash is the spiritual centre for four great religions - Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. To Tibetans it is known as Khang Rimpoche (Precious Jewel of Snow) and they see it as the navel of the world. It is said that a stream from the mountain pours into a nearby lake and from here rivers flow in the four cardinal directions.

Strangely enough, four major rivers do indeed emerges near Kailash, the Indus, the Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra), the Karnali and the Sutlej.

For the Hindus Mount Kailash is the earthly manifestation of Mt. Meru, their spritual centre of the universe, described as a fanatastic world pillar 84,000 miles high, around which all else revolves, its roots in the lowest hell and its summit kissing the heavens. On the top lives their most revered God, Shiva, and his consort Parvati.

Tibetans believe that it is the residence of Demchog, a fierce looking tantric deity who resides there with his consort, Dorje Phagmo. This place is special for the Tibetans also for being the place where their poet saint Milarepa spent several years here meditating in a cave.

Pilgrims at Mount Kailas For the Jains, an Indian religious group, Kailash is the site where their first prophet achieved enlightenment. For the older, more ancient religion of Bon, it is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven. It was formerly the spiritual centre of Zhang Zung, the ancient Bon Empire that once included all of western Tibet. Bon people walk around the mountain in a counter clockwise manner, unlike the other religions.

Over the centuries pilgrims have constantly journeyed immense distances to achieve enlightenment or cleanse themselves of sin, braving enormous distances, particularly harsh weather and bandit attacks.
