About Mount KailashSatellite view is showing Mount Kailash (officially: Kangrinboqê; Tibetan: Gang Rinpoche; Chinese: 冈仁波齐峰, Gang Ren Bo Qi Feng, named on the map: Kangrinboge Peak), a peak in the Gangdisê Trans-Himalayas mountain range (also known as the Kailas Range) in Tibet (China).
Gang Rinpoche means "precious jewel of snows", the mountain peak is a sacred place in four religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, a religion originated in India and Bön faith, a traditional belief in Tibet. This might be the reason that the mountain has never been climbed.
Mount Kailash is located just north of Lake Rakshastal (zoom out to see La'nga Co; on the left) and Lake Manasarowar (Mapam Yumco), one of the holiest lakes in various religions, the lake attracts pilgrims from Tibet, India and many other countries.
Mount Kailash is the headwaters of some of the most important and longest rivers in Asia, the Indus and the Brahmaputra.
