Mount Kailas remains fascinating, lying as it does on the far side of the main Himalayan range in a remote region of Tibet. It is one of the most sacred mountains in all Asia. It was venerated by the great religions (Hindus, Buddhists, Jains) and many ardent pilgrims make the long and hazardous pilgrimage to it, the consummation of which was a 32 mile circumnavigation along a route replete with monasteries and sites of profound religious significance.
