Mt. Kailash Tibet And West Nepal Trek

Friday, September 1st, 2000

Bob circles the holy mountain. For the story and pictures of his experience go here.

Bob mentioned that when he did his Kora (trip) around the holy mountain of Kailesh in Tibet you always knew who the Jains were because they circumnavigated the mountain clockwise and the Hindus and the Buddhists walked around counter-clockwise. The belief is that if you make so many trips around the mountain in a lifetime (something like 24) that you can achieve freedom from your sins on earth.
