Mount Kailash

Mount Kailash

Mount Kailash is a 6600-meter peak in the Chinese part of the Himalayas near Mansarovar Lake. The mountain is considered sacred by both the Hindu as well as Buddhist communities and as a result, the Chinese government has banned anyone from scaling it. One mountaineer did get a permit but had to withdraw due to the public backlash. In the past, people who tried to scale it accounted for it is very difficult. Locals believe that Lord Shiva resides there. There have been many other weird theories related to the peak, one of them being that it is actually a pyramid which is connected to others like the Great Pyramid of Giza via a network of underground tunnels. As a result till date, the peak remains unscaled.
