What is the Significance of Mount Kailash

Mount Kailash is regarded as one of the most sacred places in the world. Mount Kailsh is situated in Tibet. It is situated 22,000 ft above sea level.

In Hindu mythology, Mount Kailash is believed to be the home of Lord Shiva.It is one of the least visited holy places. There are many monasteries and places of great importance on the route to Mt Kailash. There are many stone carvings and other attractions for pilgrims.

Most of the visitors take a dip in the Mansarovar lake. The Mansarovar lake is 18 miles from the Mount Kailash. Taking a dip or soaking the head in the holy water provides spiritual benefits and only the brave could take a dip in the icy water.

Devotees walk many miles, to reach the Mount Kailash. It takes 1-3 days to walk and some people do full body prostrations, which could take up to 1 month. Hindus walk the mountain clockwise which is called is Parikrama, which takes up to three days. Some people think that the walk around Mount Kailash should be completed within a day.

Not many people can do this until they are fully fit. Due to altitude sickness and uneven terrain and harsh weather it is difficult to walk within a day.
