Mount Kailash – Tibet

Mount Kailash is located in the Transhimalaya mountain range and is a sacred place for Hinduism, Buddhism, Bon, and Jainism. It’s thought to be the home of the God Shiva, one of Hinduism’s main deities, and where he mediated with his wife Pārvatī.

Thousands of pilgrims visit the site every year as they believe circumambulating brings good fortune; Hindus and Buddhists do it clockwise while Jains and Bönpos counterclockwise. The path is 52 kilometers long and should be completed in one day, which takes roughly 15 hours.
