Mt. Kailash, at 6714 m also known
as Tise, Kailasa & Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the
Snows), has since time immemorial been celebrated in
many Eastern cosmologies as Mt. Meru, the axis mundi.
And as the center of the physical & metaphysical
universe, Mt. Meru is sacred to the Buddhist, Jains,
the Hindus & the Bonpos. For the Hindus, the
mountain represents the seat of Lord Shiva; for the
Buddhists, a terrestrial projection of the cosmic
mandala of Dhyani-Buddhas & Bodhisattvas….The Wheel
of Life; for the Bonpos, Kailash was the sacred nine
storey Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo
founder Sherab alighted from heaven. Four of the
great rivers of the Indian subcontinent originates
from here: the Karnali, which feeds into the Ganges
(south); the Indus (north); the Sutlez (west) & the
Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsangpo, east).
Everest Excursion offers special trips to Mt.
Kailash & Lake Manasorovar to facilitate pilgrims &
foreign tourists. We are probably one of the few
outfits that provide Nepali Sherpa staff support for
all of our treks in Tibet so as to ensure similar
high quality trek services that exist in Nepal. All
trips are planned to arrive at Kailash on a
full-moon day to obtain total & unhindered view of
the holy mountain.
