The sacred Mount Kailash top is located in western China's Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is one of the most sacred places on earth according to followers of the Bönpo religion, Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Jains. The peak, part of the Trans-Himalaya mountain range, rises to a height of 6,638 meters (21,778 feet).
It is also the source of four of Asia's greatest rivers, the Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva, one of Hinduism's principal deities, resides on Mount Kailash. It is also said to be the spot where Lord Buddha meditated in a previous life. According to Jainism, this is where the first Tirthankara found liberation. The Kailash Parikrama also called the annual pilgrimage to Mount Kailash, draws tens of thousands of people from all over the world. The voyage is regarded as being particularly difficult due to the high altitude, bad weather, and rough terrain. Due to the Chinese government's restrictions on access to the top and its surroundings, visiting Mount Kailash can be challenging.
Despite this, many individuals still see the walk as a spiritual and life-changing event.

Going up at higher altitude too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to kill. We understand that for a safe trek, it is essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. Himali holidays 's itineraries are designed to prevent AMS as much as possible. But, it is important to remember that some visitors are more vulnerable than others.
