Mount Kailas means “precious jewel of eternal snow” has remained as a place shrouded in mystery and legend is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier ranges; at an altitude of 22028 ft.( 6714 m). This is the legendary snow-shrouded rock dome which is revered by four different religions as one of the most sacred pilgrimage destinations in Asia.
Mount Kailash is regarded as the inchantic place of Lord Shiva and an earthly manifestation of Mount Meru, their spiritual center of the universe. Mount Kailash is known to the Tibetans as Gang Rimpoche or by its aboriginal name, Ti-se. From the slopes of Mount Meru a stream it is said to pour into Mapham Yumtsho, and from this lake flow four rivers in the four cardinal directions towards the oceans: the Senge Khabab (rivers from Lion Mouth) to the north, the Tamchok Khabab (river from the Horse Mouth), to the east, The Mapcha Khabab (river from the Peacock Mount) to the south, and the Langchen Khabab (river from the Elephant Mouth) to the west.
Thesemythical rivers are now associated with the four major rivers originating near Mount Kailash: the Indus, the Brahmaputra, The Karnali, and the Sutlej, respectively. Mount Kailash also has a special association with the poet saint Milerepa, who spent several years here meditating in caves. Mount Kailash is sacred to the Bon religion as well. .
