Highlights of the Mount Kailash tours are the sacred Mt.Kailash and holy Lake Mansarovar, which are the most legendary travel destinations in the world. Mt.Kailash has been a religious sanctuary since pre-Buddhist times. The kora (circumambulation/circuit/parikrama) around mount Kailash is one of the most important pilgrimages in Asia. Pilgrims of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Bon believe that one kora around Mt.Kailash cleanses sins of this lifetime ; 108 koras break the cycle of rebirth and assures one of nirvana at death. And Lake Mansarovar is believed to clean one's annoyances when he is rinsed by the water. A trip to Kailash and Mansarovar is one of the most visited pilgrimages in Tibet. Mt.Kailash Kora is 52km long, usually takes three days to complete. The altitude ranges from 4675m at Darchen, the starting point to 5630m at Drolma-la, the highest point of the kora. The kora is made in a clockwise direction by Hindus and Buddhists but counterclockwise by followers of the Jain and Bön religions.
