Supreme Hindu god, Lord Shiva is believed to live in Mount Kailash by Hindu religion people. For them, to make the strenuous pilgrimage to Kailash and have the Darshan (divine view) of Shiva's abode is to attain release from the vices of life. Thousands of Hindu religious people pour in the sacred mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake, situated in the China's Autonomous Region of Tibet, every year from across the globe and neighboring country India via the route of Nepal. Tibet has become a world famous pilgrimage destination for the devotees of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bon religions due to the presence of Holy Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake.
The snow-capped rocky peak-Kailash Parbat (mountain) 6714meters is also believed to be a place where founders of Tibetan Buddhism, Jainism and Bonpo religions once meditated and resided. Hindus and Buddhists worship this peak as the exact "Centre of the Universe".
Mansarovar Lake: The word "Manas" means mind or consciousness and Sarovar means Lake. Hence literally the meaning of this lake is Consciousness of Mind. Mansarovar Lake (4580m) is another significant pilgrimage not only to Hindus but to Buddhists as well. Hindu regards this Lake as the bathing pond of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and Buddhist believe that Lord Gautama Buddha meditated nearby this Lake and obtained Enlightenment.

Drinking its pure water is believed to cure the incurable diseases as well. This lake has huge circumference that even the locals take three full days to rotate and while other new pilgrims may take 6-7 days for the same rotation Ancient Hindu scriptures indicate this lake as a must visit place for someone who wants to attain ultimate salvation (Mokshya) - the highest level of achievement in Hindu religion.
