Tibet tours will now be offering visits of Mount Kailash. This is a critical part of China to the Indians as it is important to the Buddhist and Hindu faiths.
Mount Kailash is a prominent mountain in Tibet where the Ganges, Indian and Yarlung Zangbo Rivers all originate out of. It is here where Indians pay their respects to many key figures in the Hindu and Buddhist faiths.

Those who do choose to go on a pilgrimage will need all the willpower one can handle as well as a strong mind and body in order to make it to this part of India.
Tibet tours are opening up to those aiming to see what many Indians feel will provide people with full blessings throughout their lives. This comes even as it is often a challenge to make it up the mountain due to the various snow storms and other difficult land masses that can be found en route to the mountain.
