Mount Kailash Via Kyirong

There are different routes: Mount Kailash via the Kyirong border is one good option for you! Kyirong is the border between Nepal and China. Kyirong is just 175 km from Kathmandu. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva spent most of his time on the top of the holy Mount Kailash, practicing Yogic austerities, joy, and love with his divine consort Parbati (Mother of Mythology). Lake Mansarovar and the holy Mount Kailash are the souls of all AUM followers the world over.

As per Buddhist texts, Mount Kailash (Kailasa) is known as the mythological Mount Meru. For some Buddhist traditions, Kailash is a major site of pilgrimage and is central to their cosmology. Numerous sites in the region are associated with Padmasambhava, whose tantric practices in holy sites around Tibet are credited with finally establishing Buddhism as the main religion of the country in the 7th–8th century.

“Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt. Kailash wipes out all the sins of a lifetime; 108 Parikramas guarantee enlightenment. A ritual bath in the holy Mansarovar Lake transports pilgrims to the paradise of Brahma, and a sip of its water absolves one of the sins of countless lifetimes.”
