This Mountain is considered holy by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. In ancient texts, it is referred to as the centre of the world. The reason can be understood from the geographical significance of its place: within 30 miles radius, are the sources of mighty rivers Indus (north called “Sindhu” in India), Sutlej (in west), Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsang-po in east), and Karnali (largest tributary to the Ganges in south). Hindus regard the peak as Shiva’s symbolic ‘Lingam’and worship Mt Kailash, which is the Sanskrit name for the mountain

It is generally cool during nights and warm during days at Mt. Kailash.

Summers (May to August) are very pleasant with moderate climate, with average around 15°C. Summers are ideal for all outdoor activities, temple visit, dip in holy waters and also for visiting nearby attractions. A grand religious festival called Saga Dawa, is usually held at Mt. Kailash around May and June each year.

Monsoons (September to November) are accompanied with little rain falls and also temperature drops down to 10°C.

May to November offers cool and pleasant climate and the right period to spend meditation and also good for visiting temples in and around.

The main attraction of the mountain is the pilgrimage circuit around the mountain. It normally takes 3 days and should only be undertaken by the well-prepared and fit.
