Mt. Kailash Trip-By Jeep

Mount Kailash, 6,638m (21,778ft), located in the far west of Tibet is considered a sacred place in four religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Bon and Jainism. In Sanskrit language Kailash means luminous crystal. Hindus believe Mt. Kailash to be the abode of Lord Shiva and a place of eternal bliss. According to legend, the immortal Shiva is enthroned on the top of Kailash and the mountain is regarded as the location of exceptionally powerful transformation. Therefore a Hindu making the pilgrimage to Kailash and having a darshan (divine view) of Shiva's abode is to attain release from the clutches of ignorance and delusion.
