Simikot Kailash Mansarovar tour
Mount Kailash, located in far west corner of Tibet, is the most sacred peak of Asia. The beauty of the 6700 meter high Mount Kailash, that looks like a symmetrical cone shaped rock perpetually capped by pure crystalline ice, is described in various mythological and literary works.
Kailash resembles a huge natural temple. Stones, springs and hills along the way have a deeper religious meaning to the pilgrims. The trail leads through a golden-yellow steppe into the valley of the holy river and through canyons before the ascent to its highest point, Dolma La (5636m), starts. Pious wanderers mumble their prayers and ring their brass bells in front of the holy rock in which, according to legend the goddess Dolma disappeared after she had guided the first pilgrim here. To pilgrims it is the symbolic passage through the gates of death after which one is cleansed and prepared for a good rebirth.
