Mt. Kailash or Kangri Rimpoche (6714m) is one of the most sacred mountains in Tibet province of China. Kailash is revered by followers of Buddhism, Bon, Hinduism and Jainism. Buddhists and Bons believe it as the place of enlightenment of Buddha and Guru Rimpoche. Hindus consider it as the abode of Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati while Jains regard it as the spot where their first saint Rishabh attained freedom or liberation.

Along with Kangri Rimpoche (Kailash), Mapam Yumtso lake or Manasarovar LakeLake holds equal spiritual significance among the pilgrims. It is here that Buddhists believe Mayadevi bathed before giving birth to Buddha. For Hindus to dip in the lake will expunge them of all their mortal sins and pave the way for heaven.
