    MOUNT KAILASH & MANASAROVAR LAKE : GATEWAY TO HEAVEN (Credits to Amit Kumar Parasher )

    Mt Kailash also known as Mt Meru ,,,is referred to as the navel of the earth..

    Four legendary rivers flow from within a radius of 50 kms in different directions.......

    To the South is the Sapphire face,,, from where the river Karnali flows,,, From the Ruby face on the West flows river Sutlej,,...From the Gold face on the North flows the Indus,,,,Eastwards from the crystal face flows the Brahmaputra...



    Each of Mt Kailash face highlights different moods...

    The South face reflects Majesty or splendour and it is fully covered by Snow...

    The West face is enveloped in an aura of compassion n benevolence...

    The North face is Stark , forbidding and daunting , while the easy , visible only from distance, is mysterious n distant..

    The Southern face of Kailash displays the markings of the celestial steps,,a long vertical cleft,,,punctuated by a horizontal line of rock strata....

    The design resembles a Swastika indicating the rays of the Sun in Hinduism , since the Vedic age ....It is also a Buddhist symbol of spiritual strength ..



    The 53 km long passage is the most sacred for all pilgrims...

    Parikrama (Circumambulation) is performed in a clockwise direction...ONE PARIKRAMA OF Mt KAILASH IS SAID TO ERASE SINS OF A LIFE TIME & 108 OF SUCH PARIKRAMAS WILL ENSURE NIRVANA....



    The Dolma pass is the highest trekking point and it has five small kunds or Lakes of different shapes,,,Containing Emerald _ green water.....

    It is also callled the Lake of compassion,,,,Where Goddess Mother Parvati bathed ....



    Kailash is one of the four sport hills built for Bhagwan Shiva,,,,,The other three being Kankadri,,Mandar ,, and Gandhamadan.



    MANASAROVAR LAKE :



    The sacred Manas is situated at the foot of Mt Kailash. Brahma created this lake for his meditation and worship.

    The sacred Manasarovar is at the height of 4650 meters above sea level , with a circumference of 110 kms,,,which can be trekked in 3 days......

    It has a depth of 300 feet and covers an area of 350 sq kms ...

    It is amongst the highest bodies of fresh water in the World....though for the most part of the year it is frozen,,,,,,around May ,,the waters are visible.....



    The waters of Manasarovar look like pearls; to drink them is said to erase the Sins of a 100 life times..The water is so fresh n clean n clear that often it looks like a gem of Cobalt blue........

    The high elevation lends it an unmatched radiance......The water is considered to hv Healing powers......

    There is a sister lake called Rakshastal.......In this lake only , demon king RAVANA stood on one foot and performed penance to invoke Bhagwan Shiva 's Divine blessings....



    It is a great mystery to hv such a big lake at an altitude of 17000 ft .....a rarest possibilty as the Earth is round and no scientific theory can prove How so much water can be available at that height...When the Gravitational pull of the earth can push the water down to the sea level........
