Kailash Parikrama Trek
Mt. Kailash (6714 m) – also known as Tise, Kailasa or Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows) has since time immemorial been celebrated in many eastern cosmologies as Mt.Meru, the axis-mundi. As the center of the physical & metaphysical universe, Mt. Meru(Kailash) is sacred to the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Jains, and the Bonpos. For theHindus, the mountain represents the seat of Shiva. For the Buddhists, a terrestrial projection of the cosmic mandala of the Dyani Buddhas & Boddhisatvas .… The Wheel of Life. The Jains of India revere the mountain as the site at which the first of their saints emancipated. And in the ancient Bon religion of Tibet, Kailash was the sacred nine storey Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Shenrab alighted from heaven. Few mountains in the world rival the grandeur of Mount Kailash. Kailash has long been an object of worship for four major religions. It is also the abode of Samvara – a multi armed, wrathful deity worshipped in the Chakrasamvara Tantric cycle of Tibetan Buddhism.
