KAILAS YATRA BY JEEP & BY BUS

 

Few mountains in the world rival the grandeur of Mount Kailash ( 6714m.), the famed holy peak in western Tibet. Kailash has long been an object of worship for four major religions. For the Hindus, it is the domain of Shiva. It is also the abode of Samvara – a multiarmed, wrathful deity worshipped in the Chakrasamvarara Tantric cycle of the Tibetan Buddhism. The Jains of India also revere the mountain as the site at which of first of their saints emancipated. And in the ancient Bon religion of Tibet, Kailash was the sacred nine storeys Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Shenrab alighted from heaven.

 

Sprawling below Mount Kailas is the sacred Lake Mansarovar ( 4560m.) where a ritual bath will deliver a pilgrim to Brahma’s paradise and drink of its water relinquishes the sins of a hundred lifetimes.

 

The 53 km kailash circuit is the holiest of all Tibet’s Pilgrimages and the beacon which draws most travelers to western Tibet. It is said that Single parikrama erases the accumulated sins of a lifetimes, while 108 circumbulation will achieve Salvation or Nirvana.
