Indians, whether Buddhists or Hindu believers have a passion for Tibet. Located in the remote west of Tibet, Mount Kailash is the world's recognized holy mountain. It's also considered the "center of the world" by Hinduism, Buddhism, Bonism and ancient Jainism. Hindus have realized the uniqueness of this mountain since ancient times. In Indian mythology, it is the abode of Lord Shiva.

Not far from it is Mansarovar, one of the three sacred lakes in Tibet. According to Indian legends, Lake Manasarovar is equated with the potion of eternity. It's believed that the water of Manasarovar can wash away the sins of a lifetime.
