Mount Kailash is one of the most notable peaks in the Kailash ranges, which stretch across India and Tibet and are located near Lake Manasarovar and Lake Rakshastal. Mount Kailash is thought to be Lord Shiva’s holy residence, where he is said to remain in perpetual meditation with his wife Parvati and his much-loved vehicle Nandi.

Buddhists regard the location to be Buddha’s home, and followers of Jainism think it is the location from whence Rishabh, the religion’s propagator, acquired enlightenment. There have been various mysterious behaviours observed at this peak, one of which being that no one has been able to reach the summit to this day.

1. It Is Possible to Witness Time Travel

Those who have visited the holy mountain have reported significant growth, particularly of the nails and hair. The growth of nails and hair, which normally takes around two weeks, occurs in just 12 hours here; the mountain air helps to the quick ageing process.

2. Continual Position Alteration

Nobody has succeeded in climbing the summit except a Tibetan Buddhist monk named Milarepa in the 11th century since it varies its destination and also tends to block the tracks, leading climbers astray.

Trekkers might unexpectedly travel in the opposite direction or encounter poor weather, forcing them to descend, and many of them never returned. So far, all attempts to reach the summits have failed.

3. The World’s Central Axis?

A huge number of research undertaken by Russian and American scientists think that the holy peak is the centre of the world, also known as the axis mundi. It is also supposed to be linked to various other sites across the world, including Stonehenge, which is exactly 6666 km away, the North Pole, which is also 6666 km away, and the South Pole, which is 13332 miles away from the top.

4. The Mythical Connection Between Heaven and Earth

Mount Kailash’s four faces face the four directions of the compass. According to the Vedas, the mountain connects heaven and earth. Hindus, Buddhists, and Jainists believe that the summit is the entryway to heaven. The Pandavas and Draupadi are said to have gained moksha while climbing up the mountain, with one of them falling off before reaching the top.

5. Swastika Formation and Om Parvat

When the sun goes down, the mountain is said to throw a shadow that resembles the Hindu holy symbol of Swastika, which is considered an auspicious sign. Om Parvat is still another intriguing unsolved riddle, since snow falls on the mountain and forms the letter OM.
