Mt. Kailash Pictures

Among the undulating ridges and peaks, this erecting peak does look unique and was mystified as sacred mountain at a time when science could not give a reasonable explanation.

The 6,638 meters high Mt. Kailash is the main peak of the splendid Gangdise Mountain. Covered with snow all the year round, it just looks like a white pyramid touching the sky. Due to its special appearance and sublime scenery, the mountain is regarded a sacred mountain and the the center of the world in Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, Bon Religion and Jainism. Attraction Intro: Mt. Kailash
  • Among the undulating ridges and peaks, this erecting peak does look unique and was mystified as sacred mountain at a time when science could not give a reasonable explanation.
  • It is this peak that is regarded as the Sacred Mountain by pilgrims. The snow covered summit looks like a silver crown, which adds a touch of mystery to the already legendary mountain.
  • This may be one of the last places not defiled by modern sprawls. Maybe this is the same sky when in the beginning God created it. We wish this azure sky would be so eternally.
  • When Buddhism was the dominating religion, pilgrims from local and India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim and so on came here to worship and pray. Therefore, temples of various styles can be seen here.
  • It is said the social status of a pilgrim would be increased dramatically if he came here and walked around the mountain several circles. These temples and stupas might be an evidence of their pilgrim.
  • Today''s Mountain Kailash has become a hot attraction which is popular even among non-believers. To many people, to conquer a mountain is the ultimate meaning of their exploration. However, to Tibetans, they never wave the banner of ''protecting nature'' but they practice it in their daily life. Nature is indeed part of their blood.
