Epicenter of Energy (Chakra), it is believed that Mt. Kailash is the one of the four chakra (Epicenter) and source of energy, Holy to Hindu, Tibetan and many community around the world. Mt. Kailash is attracting people around for many reasons such as its natural beauty, myth & mystery and faith. Legend says Hindu Shiva lived and meditated in Mt. Kailash along with his consort, great Tibetan masters Padmasambhawa (Guru Rimpoche), Yogo Melarappa and spiritual teacher of Jain Dharma (religion) said to have meditated in Mt. Kailash and attained Nirvana. Each of Kailash’s four sheer walls lie-gem like along the four cardinal points of the compass and that’s not all!! /known as the “Navel of the World”, Kailash is located at the key point to the drainage system of the Tibetan plateau. From Kailash flow the four most sacred rivers of the subcontinent. The Karnali river flows from the south, “Sapphire, face of Kailash", feeding into the Ganges as it rushes through the Himalayas. The Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra), flows from the eastern, “Crystal" face along the entire breadth of the Himalayas until it passes through the mountains into Bangladesh, empty-like the Ganges-into the bay of Bengal. The Indus River, whose fertile banks saw the birth of ancient Indian civilization, flows west and then south through Pakistan, from the northern God face. The Sutlej also flows west into Pakistan from the western, ‘Ruby” face of Kailash, eventually flowing, like the Indus, into the Arabian Sea. The two pairs meet the ocean more than 2,000km apart. Such symmetry is truly amazing-indeed holy.
