For thousands of years, Kailash and Manasarovar region has been the abode of God and a pilgrimage site of utmost sanctity. Lord Shiva is depicted in Hindu Mythology to have resided at the top of Mount Kailash in a state of meditation along Parbati, his wife and the Daughter of Himalaya. Also known as Tise or Kang Rinpoche (The Jewel of Snows), the Kailash Parbat (Mt Kailash) is believed to be the ultimate destination of souls and spiritual center of the world. And people deeply believe that holy Himalaya is the grand palace of Gods who kept the universe secluded from the evil spirits. Not only for Hindus and Buddhists, but Mount Kailash is also regarded as the center of physical and metaphysical universe for Janis and Bonpos. Lake Manasarovar is considered the abode of purity and people believe that all sins committed over a hundred lifetimes will be cleansed once they drink its water. Mount Kailash Yatra forms the ultimate realization of their spiritual pursuit for the devout pilgrims while it offers the peerless beauty in the secluded and remote land of Tibet for the adventure-seeking hearts.

Geographically located significantly in a remote south-west corner of Tibet, Mt Kailash is an astoundingly symmetrical 22028ft giant pyramid with a diagonal gash which is visible on one of its faces. Often recited as 'a compelling dome-shaped peak rising above a desolately beautiful 13,000ft plateau of rainbow-colored rocks', Mount Kailash is one of the most sacred and precious peaks in the world. Different existing mythologies in different religions depict Mount Kailash in their own ways as one of the most sacred places in the earth. Kailash Parikrama (Circumambulation of Mt Kailash) is one of the holiest pilgrimage activities for people from Hindu, Buddhist, and Bonpo communities.
