Kailash Manasarovar Tour

Tise in Tibetan is the jewel of the Himalayas and the most revered mountain in the world. It is the spiritual center for four great religions: Bonpo, Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism and Jain religions.
According to ancient religion of Bon, Mt. Kailash is the site where its founder Shanrab is said to have descended from heaven. It was formerly the spiritual center of Zhang Zung, the ancient Bon Empire that once included all of western Tibet .
Also known as Khang Rimpoche in Tibetan language, which means ‘Precious Jewel of Snow’ Mt. Kailash is regarded as the naval of earth. The Mountain is the source of water for four great rivers of Asia: the Indus, the Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra), the Karnali and the Sutlej. Tibetans believe that it is the residence of Demchog, a fierce looking tantric deity who lives there with his consort, Dorje Phagmo. The great saint and poet Milarepa is said to have spent several years here meditating in a cave.
Tibetans revere Mount Kailash as Kang Rimpoche while the followers of ancient Bon Pa religion take Kailash to be the soul of Tibet. Nearby Mt. Kailash is the sacred Mapam Yumtso or Mansarovar River where pilgrims can enjoy heavenly bliss.
