Mount Kailash is located in a remote region of Western Tibet and this place is perhaps one of the most mysterious places on planet Earth. No matter how the researchers struggle, the secrets of the mountain remain incomprehensible…
The height of Kailash is 6666 meters. Four main rivers of India originate from it. However, the main water mystery are two lakes. They are located at an altitude of 4650 meters. Separated from each other by a thin stone isthmus, they are a real wonder of the world.
First – Manasarovaras, Mapam Jumco (“lake of living water”) keeps calm in any, even the most inclement weather. You can safely drink its purest fresh water. Some even notice the healing and rejuvenating effect of Manasarovar.
The salty waters of the second reservoir are constantly storming. Even if there is not a breeze on the shore, the surface of the lake is always seething. Lake Rakshastal (“dead lake” or “Lake of the Demon”) is constantly in motion. Its water is not that unsuitable for food, it is simply dangerous for humans. Among pilgrims there is a holy ban on visiting this place.
Solar and lunar eclipses are visible in both these lakes. It is still a mystery whether these lakes were formed naturally or artificially. All rivers originate from Mount Kailash: 4 rivers originate from 4 directions of Mount Kailash – Brahmaputra, Indus, Sutlej and Karnali. The Ganges, Saraswati and other rivers of China also originate from these rivers.
This is not the most surprising thing that happens on the mysterious mountain. Rumor has it that time behaves differently here. It sometimes goes smoothly, sometimes it stretches, but most often it runs as if skipping. Moreover, this phenomena applies only to biological species.
Some travelers noticed that judging by the way the hair grew, 12 hours spent on the mountain can be equated to two full ordinary weeks.
But not everyone is able to come close to this mountain. For some reason, the traveler’s thoughts are confused, and behold, he only cheerfully walked up the stairs, and in the next second he almost ran down. Moreover, many have noticed that the awareness of the change of direction comes already at the foot.
Not a single climber has yet managed to conquer the summit of Kailash.
In 1926, Hugh Ruttledge studied the north face, which he estimated “utterly unclimbable” and thought about an ascent of the northeast ridge, but he ran out of time. Ruttledge had been exploring the area with Colonel R. C. Wilson, who was on the other side of the mountain with his Sherpa named Tseten.
Wilson said that Tseten told him: “‘Sahib, we can climb that!’ … as he too saw that this [the SE ridge] represented a feasible route to the summit.” Wilson went on to explain that although he was serious about climbing Kailash, he ran into unexpected difficulties: “Just when I discovered an easy walk to the summit of the mountain, heavy snow began to fall, making the ascent impossible.”
Herbert Tichy was in the area in 1936, attempting to climb mountain. When he asked one of the Garpons of Ngari whether Kailash was climbable, the Garpon replied: “Only a man entirely free of sin could climb Kailash.”
In addition to anomalies on the ground, the mountain is notable for its location. It is located directly opposite Easter Island. Only on the opposite side of the planet. The island is also known for its mysteries.
Travelers made a number of measurements. It turned out that Stonehenge is exactly 6666 kilometers from Kailash. The North Pole is exactly the same distance, and the South Pole is twice as far.
Everyone who studies Mount Kailash unanimously claims that it has a pyramidal shape. Surprisingly, its faces are strictly oriented to the cardinal points. The researchers are also sure that there are vast voids at the base and in the middle of the mountain.
This directly suggests the conclusion that this is an artificial building. But who and why erected such a cyclopean structure also remains a mystery.
And, finally, the most interesting mystery of Mount Kailash is the so-called Nandi sarcophagus adjoining it. This is one of the most sacred places.
Apparently, this special form is needed for the concentration of cosmic energy in the temple. It has been proven that such forms are no longer found in Tibet. However, this is not found anywhere else on the planet.
If we use the analogy with the Russian and Indian temples, then there is reason to believe that the sarcophagus is only the top of an ancient underground sanctuary.
The Temple itself is much lower.
Here is how this place is described in Tibetan texts:
“[In the south], in an open area, in front of these golden funerary shrines stands a rocky hill known as the Palace of the Buddhist Saint Angaji (gNas-brtan Yang-lag-byung-kyi Pho-brang), and on the slopes of the mountain [in the east], which looks as if a curtain of white silk is attached to it, the divine assembly of Yeshes Gonpo lives … “.
“Divine Assembly” – apparently, this means that the sarcophagus for the time being hides from the world all the great teachers who have ever been sent to earth. It is likely that Krishna, Buddha, Zarathustra and perhaps even Jesus are there, in a state of samadhi (a very deep meditation in which the body can last for thousands of years).
Mount Kailash is as beautiful as it looks, it is also mysterious. This mountain holds many secrets within itself. It is mentioned as Kailas Khand in Shiva Purana, Skanda Purana, Matsya Purana etc.
Mythology says that there was an ancient Kubera treasure near Mount Kailash. However, its exact location is not yet known. Today we are going to tell you such secrets and myths related to Mount Kailash, knowing that you will be shocked. According to scientists, Mount Kailash is the center of the earth.
It is claimed that Mount Kailash is often seen shining in the sky with 7 types of lights. According to NASA scientists, this may be due to the magnetic force here.
Of course, these are all just rumors. And only the expedition could confirm or refute these theories. Unfortunately, for reasons unknown to us, the Chinese government has banned expeditions to this places.
