Mount Kailash 6,714 m (22,000 feet) is a holy mountain considered by ancient texts as the center of the world and by Hindus as the abode of Lord Shiva by Hindus. Some Buddhists believe the mountain to be the home of the Buddha Demchok. Many Hindu pilgrims from India make the long journey so that they may trek around the mountain in hopes of being freed from an endless cycle of births and deaths. The mountain itself lies in a remote part of the Tibetan Himalayas just to the north of the border between Nepal and India. It’s a 52km (30 miles) circuit that normally takes 3 days to complete. It’s a long but exceptionally scenic journey just to reach the mountain that requires 4 days of driving from either Kathmandu or Lhasa. If you are in a hurry and can afford it you can join wealthy pilgrims on a helicopter.
