This journey calls for undying faith and power-pack determination to reach the destination where the cosmos begin. Kailash is a peak in Tibet located in the Kailash range of Transhimalayas. Kailash Range is known as Mount Kailash and no mortal can manage the conquering of Mount Kailash Peak. Likewise, in spite of Lord Shiva abode being at 6638 meter vis-a-vis Mount Everest being torched at 8848 meters, somehow one can manage to submit at a lower altitude only. Furthermore, Mount Kailash is a mystery that remains on an enigma plateau between the borders of Nepal and China.
