Mount Kailash is a peak in the Kailas Range, part of the Transhimalaya in Tibet. It lies near the source of some of the longest rivers in Asia such as Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and the Karnali River. It is considered a sacred place in Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism, respectively. The mountain lies near Lake Manasarowar in Tibet. According to Hinduism, Lord Shiva, the destroyer of ignorance and illusion, resides at the summit of a legendary mountain named Kailash.
Lake Manasarovar is a freshwater lake in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. To the west of Lake Manasarovar is Lake Rakshastal while toward the north is Mount Kailash. As per Hindu theology, Lake Manasa Sarovar is a personification of purity, and one who drinks water from it goes to the Abode of Lord Shiva after death. Buddhists also associate the lake with the legendary lake known as Anavatapta in Sanskrit, where Queen Maya is believed to have conceived Lord Buddha.
