Kailas Climbing Notes

Bipin Mehta from INDIA writes:

The holy mountain is not the place for the physically climbing but spiritual climbing. In search of Mahadev n the very existence of the universe. If you count any distance from the Holy Kailash, The distance from Mount Kailash to the North Pole is also 6666 kilometers and 13,332 kilometers to the South Pole, exactly the double compared to the North Pole. Mount Kailash surrounded by five monasteries.
