Mt Kailash North Face

Mt Kailash

Mt Kailash is 6,638 m (21,778 feet) high peak in the Trans-himalaya range in Tibet, China.

Called Kang Rimpoche locally, Mt Kailash is very ancient – even preceding the Ramayana times. With 4 distinct faces – North, West, South and East – it’s one of its kind!

Kailash is the source of 4 major Asian rivers – The Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali (a tributary of river Ganges).

Mt Kailash is considered to be sacred in four religions: Bon, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.

Parikrama, also known as Kora, follows the walking path around the Mountain that is 52 Km long, which is normally done over 3 days.

Parikrama starts at Yamadwar, near a small town called Darchin, on the southern side at 15,100 feet above MSL. A bit daunted by the altitude, lower air-pressure, shortness of breath, and energy-loss, one may encounter harsh weather conditions too, while doing Parikrama.

Mt Kailash is located in a remote and inhospitable area in Tibet – One could trek from Uttarakhand (India) or travel over land from Kathmandu (Nepal) or Gangtok (Sikkim) or Lhasa (Tibet) to reach Mt Kailash.

It’s fascinating to note that Gangotri and Mt Kailash share same latitude – 31.0 degree North.

The place is out-of-the-world, the environ like no-where-else!

A journey to Mt Kailash can be life-changing.

What a place!
