Kailash, a holy mountain revered by Hindus, Buddhists, Bons and Jains – and Lake Mansarovar are the major attractions of this trip. Hindus believe Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva, tantric Buddhists believe that Mount Kailash is the home of the Buddha Demchowk or Chakrasamvara who represents supreme bliss. In Jainism, Mt Kailash is also known as Meru Parbat or Sumeru. Similarly, Bon followers maintain that the entire Kailash-Mansarovar region is the seat of all spiritual power. For Hindus in India and Nepal, Kailash-Mansarovar is a pilgrimage that one must make at least once in their lifetime.
Lake Mansarovar is one of the largest freshwater lakes in Tibet. The lake has a circumference of 88 kilometres and the maximum depth of 90 meters. Hindus believe that a dip into the lake cleanses one from all sins. According to Shreemad Bhagvat Purana – a holy book of the Hindus – Lake Mansarovar is among the five sacred lakes collectively called Panch Sarovar. Other lakes are Bindu Sarovar, Narayan Sarovar, Pampa Sarovar and Pushkar Sarovar.
The pristine beauty and serenity of these religious sites are truly awe-inspiring. It instils in people the feeling of being in the abode of Lord Shiva. Hindus and Tibetans circumambulate the 32-mile circumference of the holy mountain. While Hindus call the process ‘Parikrama’, Tibetans term it ‘Kora’. Both words mean the same thing. The circumambulation is difficult and physically taxing. However, some devout pilgrims do complete the process.
