Mt. Kailash, 6,740 m. is situated to the
north of the Himalayan barrier, wholly within
Tibet It has the unique distinction of being
the most venerated yet least visited of the
world's major holy places. The mountain is the
supremely sacred site of four religions and
billions of people. Because of its remote location
in far western Tibet however, the mountain is
visited by no more than a few thousand pilgrims
each year. There are no trains nor planes going
to the region, and by land there are only three,
long and difficult, routes. Even today, with
rugged over-land vehicles the journey takes
weeks, and you must carry all your gasoline
and supplies for the entire journey.
Hindus believe Mt.Kailash to be the abode
of Lord Shiva. Among the Hindus, Shiva
is a character of apparent contradictions. He
,at once the Lord of Yoga and therefore the
ultimate enunciate ascetic, yet he is also the
divine master of Tantra, the esoteric science
that regards sexual union as the most perfect
path to spiritual enlightenment. According to
legend, immortal Shiva lives atop Kailash
where he spends his time practicing yogic austerities,
making joyous love with his divine consort,
Parvati, and smoking ganja, the sacred herb
known in the west as marijuana, Hindus do not
interpret Shiva's behaviors as contradictory
however, but rather see in him a deity who has
wisely integrated the extremes of human nature
and thus transcended attachment to any particular,
and limited, way of being. For a Hindu, to make
the arduous pilgrimage to Kailash and
have the darshan (divine view) of Shiva's abode
is to attain release from the clutches of ignorance
Pilgrims to Mt. Kailash
Given its widespread reverence as a sacred site,
pilgrims from Nepal, India and Tibet
have been making the strenuous journey to
Kailash for more than two centuries. With
almost no infrastructure in the region, pilgrims
need to bring their own transportation and all
food and supplies needed for the rugged journey.
In addition, the pilgrimage is quite expensive.
The primary purpose of one's pilgrimage
to the Kailash region is the ritual circumambulation
of the sacred mountain. This undertaking is
called parikrama in Sanskrit or kora
in Tibetan. Hindus and Buddhists travel
in a clockwise direction, while the Bon-po travel
counter-clockwise. The traditional parikrama
route is 52 km long and can be done comfortably
in three days. Some extreme enthusiasts, however,
perform prostrations for the entire journey,
meaning they travel the route on their hands
and knees. This slow and painful rite takes
between fifteen and twenty days.
On your journey,you will encounters
multiple holy peaks: Ravana Parvat, Hanuman
Parvat, Padmasambhava, Manjusri, Vajradhara,
Avalokiteswara, Jambeyang, Shavari, and Norseng.
One continues through Dhira Puk, Shivasthal,
and eventually to Dolma, which, at 18,783 feet
(5725 meters) is the highest point on the voyage.
This pass is said to belong to Deviparvat and
is spiritually very significant
