Photo Corner: Paryang to Chu Gompa - View of Kailash


The road taken to the final destination. We are just a short distance away from our first view of Kailash.












A slightly closer view of Kailash as soon a we turned around a bend. Note this mountain towers above every other mountain in the entire range.













First view of Lake Mansarovar...conveying a sense of tranquility.














The closest view yet on our way to our place of stay. The left ridge looks like an arm of the Divine throne.













The massive Gurla Mandhata range opposite the Kailash (a good 75 odd kms away). Its glaciers feed the Mansarovar.














Chu Gompa - a beautiful monastery on the banks of Lake Mansarovar.













Lake Mansarovar seen from the compound of our guest house.














Our guest house just beside the Lake.












A full moon shining down on the still lake and creating a surreal atmosphere.












Another view of the shimmering lake.
