2018 Updates on Tibet Mount Kailash


Mount Kailash is the most popular pilgrims and travel destination in Tibet.

The mountain itself is known as the land of Buddha Chakrasambhava. ( Korlo Demchok )

In Hinduism, Mount Kailash is the land of Shivaji. 

By looking at the mountain, we can even feel that it was once the center of our world like Egypt. Every year many Travelers will travel to Mount Kailash for blessings and adventure.  The spiritual kora trek route to Mount Kailash is 52km in total.

The first Buddhist pilgrim at Mount Kailash was Je Milarepa. ( Je meaning lord in Tibetan ) It was during the 11th century when Je Milarepa walked to Mount Kailash with instructions from his Lama Je Marpa.

Je Milarepa is the only person who has climbed Mount Kailash summit in the history of Tibet. 

Before decades Indian Sadhu's used to trek day and night all the way from India to Mount Kailash and practice spirituality near the Mount Kailash in solitude and it's beautiful.

When I was at Mount Kailash in the year 2005, the roads were not paved and they were only 1-2 guest houses at Darchen. We even slept at the hall of Monastery during that time but now things are different with more options.
