___ Famous Landmarks: Sacred Mountains - Satellite View of Mount Kailash, Tibet

Searchable Map and Satellite View of Mount Kailash using Google Earth Data

Satellite 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: Gangren Boqi 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 and Bön faith.
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.
