Mt. Kailash is a black mountain with four sheer walls and snow capped at the top. It is located at the western Tibet, China with its 22,022 feet altitude. The climate of the Mt. Kailash region goes through 0-70 Degrees Fahrenheit. The best time to visit Mt. Kailash is from May to September. It takes almost three days (32 miles) to round the Kailash (Parikarma of Kailash) and its high point is 19,500 feet.

According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva resides on top of Mount Kailash sitting with his wife Parvati, the daughter of Himalaya, in a state of meditation. It is supposed to be the ultimate spiritual destination of the world. Nearby the Mt. Kailash, there is another Holy Lake called Mansarovar, the abode of purity. Hindu people from different parts of world visit there as it is a place of pilgrimage. It is also believed that drinking water of Mansarovar and taking a bath with its water purifies and cleanses all the sins committed in the lifetime. It is the place long famous for peace and tranquility and the pristine beauty and serenity of these religious sites are sure to reflect Lord Shiva forth sides.

It is essential to note that the journey of Mt. Kailash completes only after going through the Parikrama of Kailash Pravat. Trekking through this long path is difficult; however, with proper preparation, devout pilgrims are able to complete this Parikrama. For Tibetan, pilgrimage is the journey from ignorance to enlightenment. Geographically, Mt. Kailash has formed approximately 50 million years ago and according to the legend, Lord Buddha is said to have visited Mt. Kailash magically in the 5th century B.C. The Kora or circumambulation, which means pilgrimage, starts at Darchen, some 30 Km from Lake Manasarovar.
