This is a very popular itinerary for both Western tourists as well as Indian Pilgrims, starting and ending at the Nepal/Tibet border. This program is mainly focused on visiting Mt Kailash and Lake Mansarovar with three days Kailash Kora. Mount Kailash is located in Western Tibet, at an altitude of (6714m) above sea level. It is the most sacred mountain for both Hindus and Buddhists and is the abode of Samvara, or Demchok in Tibetan, the wrathful meditational deity who is the Buddhist tantric aspect of great compassion. For Tibetan Bon followers, whose custom it is to circumambulate anti-clockwise, it is the abode of Lord Tonpa Shenrab. For Hindus, it is the abode of Shiva, the destroyer of evil. Jains also hold Mount Kailash sacred.
