Mount Kailash is located at the very east of Tibet with an altitude of around 6700m. Kailash means sacred mountain in Tibetan words. It is sacred to Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. The legends of these religions speak of Kailash as the mythical Mt. Meru, the Axis Mundi, the center and the birth place of the entire world. No one knows for sure as how long people have been coming to this sacred mountain. But, Kailash is indeed deeply embedded in the myths of ancient Asia. There are relatively fewer pilgrims coming to Kailash, because it is too far away west and the journey is pretty long and dangerous. Pilgrims’ walking around the mountain is known as a Kora, or Parikrama and normally takes three days.
