Located at 6,656 meters above sea level in the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China, Mount Kailash is an awesome sight! Sunrise is the best time to view this Himalayan mountain peak. As the sun rises in the eastern skies, the rays shine on the snow-capped peak which glows like pure gold and looks spectacular. In fact, watching the sunrise at Mount Kailash is one of the most popular tourist activities here. Hindus, Jains, and Buddhist revere it. It is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva, a Hindu deity. The months of May to July and the month of September are the best time to visit the mountain.
