Known as a holy mount to Hindu, Buddhist and Jain religion followers, the Mount Kailash is situated in the remote mountains of TAR (Tibetan Autonomous Region) in China near India, Nepal, China border. Mount Kailash is considered to be the ultimate home of Lord Shiva for Hindus, for Jain followers it is the place where their religion took birth and Buddhist also consider the mount as the home of Buddha Demchok.

The regular groups travel to Kailash to join the outer kora (parikrama or circumambulation) of the mount wherein the Inner parikarama or inner kora of Kailash takes you much closer to the mount and also gets an opportunity to visit many other places including Nandi, Ashtapad, Saptarishi caves and Atma Linga. Inner Kora of Kailash is comparatively tough and usually it takes place once or twice in a year. The best time for inner kora of Mount Kailash and Nandi is August month.
