About Mount Kailash

Mount Kailash, which is believed to have been formed 30 million years ago when Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most revered places in the Himalayas.

Spread out on the Tibetan plateau beside Mount Kailash is the giant lake of shifting colours - Lake Mansarovar. Brahma, the creator, had a mind (‘Man’) for the creation of a lake (‘Sarovar’), hence its name. A pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and a bath in the Mansarovar is believed to bring about salvation (Moksha).

Mt. Kailash, 6,740 m. is situated to the north of the Himalayan barrier, wholly within Tibet. It is the perfect mountain with awesome beauty, with 4 great faces. It is the spiritual centre for four great religions: Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, the Jain religion and the pre-Buddhist animistic religion - Bonpo. To Tibetans it is known as Khang Rimpoche (Precious Jewel of Snow) and they see it as the navel of the world. It is said that a stream from the mountain pours into a nearby lake and from here rivers flow in the four cardinal directions. Trips to Kailash - Mansarovar through the Lipulekh pass. The number of people allowed visiting Kailash - Mansarovar is limited and it is hoped that in the near future, more Indian pilgrims will be allowed to visit Western Tibet, the region of sacred mountains and lakes.

Kailash - Mansarovar for centuries. Almost all the major passes of Uttarakhand lead to Kailas - Man
sarovar. Because of  the  Indo-chinese  border dispute, Indians  were not allowed  to visit Kailas -  Mansarovar  for nearly two
decades. However, since 1981,  under  the auspices  of  the Indian Ministry of External  Affairs and  with the  cooperation  of  the  Chinese Government,  Kumaun Mandal  Vikas Nigam   has  been conducting  trips  to  Kailas-Mansarovar  through  the  Lipulekh pass.  Even   though  only  a  limited  number  of  people  are allowed  to visit Kailas - Mansarovar today, the  very  fact   that  the  trips have been resumed raises hopes that, in the near future, more Indian pilgrims will be allowed
to  visit Western Tibet, the region of sacred mountains and  lakes. It is because  of  Kailas -Mansarovar,   which is 865 Kilomet.  from Delhi,  that  Kumaon  is  sometimes  called  'Manaskhand'.

About Mansarover Lake

The circumference of Mansarovar is 88-km, its depth is 90m and total area is 320-sq-kms. The lake freezes in the winters and melts only in spring. It looks unbelievably fascinating on moonlit nights when an ethereal ambience pervades the atmosphere. The circumference of Rakshas Tal, also known as “Ravan Kund”, is 122-km. A 6-km long natural channel - “Gangachhu” - connects Manas with Rakshas Tal.
