|Mount Kailash Tibet (Kris Madden)|
Mount Kailash is Tibet’s holiest mountain, revered throughout Asia by no less than five different religions. To many, it’s the centre of the universe - where heaven, earth and the underworld overlap. Every year, as they have done for thousands before, many make the pilgrimage to Kailash in an ancient ritual of devotion. Kris Madden joined them on a (literally) breath-taking journey. Just one circuit is said to cleanse the sins of a lifetime, while 108 (the sacred number) is said to guarantee instant enlightenment. The story also includes travelling to Lhasa from Beijing on the high altitude train.
