High on the remote western Tibetan plateau in the northern most region of the Himalaya, sits Mt. Kailash (6714m), the holy mountain. The Tibetan people have named it Kang Rinpoche, or “snow jewel”, and the Hindus refer to it as Mt Meru. Buddhist, Hindu and Jain pilgrims from the world over go to this holy mountain to circumambulate rather than scale the 22,028- foot high peak. Hindus who walk around the 32-mile circumference of Mt Kailash use the term parikrama. They believe that Lord Shiva, one of their three main gods, resides atop what they call Mt Meru. Tibetans refer to the clockwise circumambulation as a kora. Both words mean the same thing pilgrimage. Walking around the mountain can wash away a lifetimes worth of sins.
