Mt. Kailash is a peak of the Himalayas in Tibet. Mt. Kailash is scenically breathtaking at, 6,714 meters (22,022 ft.), a glittering snow dome towering above the Tibetan Plateau like mystical jewel. It lies near the source of some of the longest rivers in Asia: the Indus River, the Sutlej River (a major tributary of the Indus River), the Brahmaputra River (Yarlung Tsangpo in Tibet) and the Karnali River (a tributary of the Ganges River). It is considered as a sacred place in five religions: Hinduism, Buddhism (in Tibetan known as Kang Rinpoche), Jainism, Ayyavazhi and the Bön faith. The mountain lies near Lake Manasarowar and Lake Rakshastal in Tibet. Pilgrims from all over the world travel to Mt. Kailash and Manasarovar Lake to perform the arduous parikrama or kora (circumambulation of the mountain and lake).
