Mount Kailash - Lhasa, Tibet
Thanks Gary McCue for this favorite place.
Far and away, this is Mount Kailash. Rising like a crystal dome above the surrounding hills, Kailash is a magnificent sight; it’s easy to see why it is the sacred peak for practitioners of four Asian religions: Buddhists, Hindus, Bonpo, and the Jains. Tibetan pilgrims typically complete the circuit around the mountain in a long day, but tour groups should slow it down and spend 2.5 to 3.5 days in order to have time to visit all the temples en route, and visit some of the side valleys along the way.
