Mt Kailash Kora 2018
The journey to Mt. Kailash is an important pilgrimage for millions of Buddhists and Hindus, in addition to Jains and Bonpos. It is believed that one circuit walk (Kora in Tibetan) of the sacred Mt. Kailash (52km/32 miles) is sufficient to wipe out all the sins of one’s lifetime. The walk is believed to wipe out all the negative unforeseen actions of your present lifetime and also for the next life. The peak of Mt. Kailash is always enveloped by white clouds .Therefore, the locals think if someone can clearly view the peak, he or she will be lucky for hundreds of years.
Mt. Kailash is one of the most sacred mountains on the earth; therefore, no one tries to climb its top. The Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims make a circuit walk around Mt. Kailash clockwise from its base and it takes three days, while Bon practitioners make a circuit walk around Mt. Kailash anti-clockwise.
During the Kora of Kailash there are local lodges for overnight stay. The highest altitude during the Kora is 5,650m.
