Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar Tirth Yatra
The Mt. Kailash is regarded as the holy place of Hindu deities Shiva—the lord of power and destruction— and Parvati—the divine beloved of the Lord Shiva. The Mt. Kailash and the Manasarovar Lake as in Hindus holy book Skanda Puran are known as the Meru, Sumeru, Sushumna, Hemadri, Ratnasanu, Karnikachala, Amaradri, Deva Parvata, Gana Parvata, Rajatadri. They lie to the western part of Tibet. A saying in Hindu religion is that the mountain and the lake are the purgatory. It is said that at the sight of the Mt. Kailash and the lake Manasarovar, a man will be released form his sins committed knowingly or unknowingly. The kora or the circular path is attempted through Dolma La (pass) at an altitude of 5630meter high.
