Mount Kailash is a peak in the Kailash Range, which forms part of the Transhimalaya in Tibet China.

It is considered a sacred place in four religions: Bon, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. The mountain lies near Lake Manasarovar and Lake Rakshastal in Tibet. As this reverential sanctum is important for Hindus likewise it constituently imparts on equal value to Buddhists too.
