Tucked away in the remote corner of exotic west of Tibet, sacred Mount Kailash (6714m) dominates the entire region’s landscapes. This revered mountain is holiest of all the holy mountain and considered as a spiritual junction for Hindus, Buddhist, Jain and Bon regions. Every year thousands of pilgrim flocks here to make pilgrimage tour to Mt. Kailash for their spiritual purification.
After difficult overland journey to Mt. Kailash, Pilgrims are confronted with more challenging task of circumambulating the sacred peak. The circular journey around Mt. Kailash is called as a Kora, or Parikarma and normally takes 3 days to complete the trek. Hindus and Buddhist make clockwise Kora while the Bon adherents make counter-clockwise Kora. It is believed that one Kora around Mt. Kailash cleanses all the sin attained in lifetime and 108 kora gives the way of salvation.
