MT. KAILASH TOUR
From the advent of the Hindu religion, 5000 years ago, it was believed that the center of the universe was the origin of the 4, most sacred rivers. Thus began the journey to find such a place. Mt. Kailash, also known as Sumeru Parbat or Kailash, is this place and indeed the Indus, Sutlej, Ganges via Karnali and the Barhma Putra Rivers, begin at this, most holy spot. Not only is Mt. Kailash important to the Hindus, but equally as valuable to the Buddhists, the Jains, Bonpo Sai Baba, and to the Rajanish Om followers as well.

Kailash Parvat, 22,028 feet above sea level, is a rock pyramid dusted with snow and is located in a scenically rich area of Western Tibet. It lies between the Himalaya and Karakorum ranges - the 2 great mountain ranges of Asia. From its peak one can see into Afghanistan, Pakistan, Hindustan (India) and Nepal. Often referred to as the Mountain of the Swastika, an ancient sign of good luck, it is considered as the most auspicious to make a religious pilgrimage around the 53 km circuit (32 mile Parikrama). In fact, the entire region of Mt. Kailash is of enormous religious significance and includes the 2 turquoise-blue, pristine high-altitude lakes of Mansarovar and the Rakshesa.

Mt. Kailash offers ample opportunities for nature-lovers as many unusual species of birds and diverse floral and faunal species thrive in the area. This holy region is a symbol of the creation of the universe, attracting scholars and researchers from the world over. Kailash, or Sumeru Parbat, being the center of the Himalaya - our God, provides us with the source of air, water and food. Life welcomes you to a spiritually enriching and rewarding opportunity of a lifetime.
