Mount Kailash & Manasarovar Tour

Mt. Kailash (6714 meters), also called Kang Rimpoche (Jewel of Snow) is a prominent home of the Hindu God Shiva and his consort Devi; for Tibetans, it is the home of the God Demchog and his consort Dorje Phangmo. According to legendary myth Milareppa, a great Tibetan Yogi and master of Tantric Buddhism, vied with Naro-Bonchung, a grand master of Bon to prove the superiority of Buddhism. Many contests took place but the final one was to see who could first reach the summit of Mt. Kailash at the crack of dawn. Riding his damaru (ritual drum) Naro- Bonchung flew towards the peak of Mt. Kailash only to be overtaken at the last second by Milarepa. Naro-Bonchung. He got so shocked that he let go his drum which crashed down the mountain leaving a vertical scar - a distinctive feature of the south face.

Two lakes, Manasarovar (Mapam Tso) and Rakas Tal lie at the southern foot of Mt. Kailash. Takas Tal is associated with the forces of darkness whereas Lake Manasarovar represents the forces of light. Also, the vicinity of Mt. Kailash is the source of four great Rivers (the Indus, The Sutlej, the Bramhaputra and Karnali); of which, waters the four quarters of the earth. Tibetan scriptures also speak of the four rivers issuing from the world mountain.
