Everest Base Camp Via Mt.Kailash Tour/Yatra
From the advent of Hindu religion for the last 5000 years, it is believed that the sacred rivers originate from the center of the universe which is Mount Kailash and Mansarover. Mt. Kailash also known as Sumeru Prabat is the home of Lord Shiva and indeed the Indus, Satlaj, Ganges via Karnali and the Brahmaputra River begins at this most holy spot. Not only is Mt. Kailash important for Hindus but Buddhists, Jains, BanPo, Sai Baba followers and all AMU followers also give high significance to this holyland.
