Mount Kailash rises to 6714 m, in one of the highest and most rugged parts of the Himalayas in Tibet.

Mt.Kailash lies near the source of some of the longest rivers in Asia, such as the Indus river, Sutlej river and Brahmaputra river. Next to the mountain are two scared lakes; the most sacred one is the Lake Manasarowar and the other is Rakshas Tal.

Manasorwar is believed to be the lake formed in the mind of God, created to show the omnipotence of the mind of Brahma.

Without it, you'll be unable to buy air or bus tickets. However, you don't have to worry about where and how to get these permits. If you take common routes, such as Chengdu - Lhasa (Air) or Kathmandu Lhasa foreign travellers must buy both the permit and the ticket together through a travel agency who provide the travel permit.
