Nepal and nearby Tibet are home to some of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for followers of the Hindu and Buddhist faiths.
Even within metropolitan Kathmandu there are sites such as 5th century Pashupatinath temple that is sacred to Hindus and the stupas of Boudhanath and Swayambhu that are sacred focal points for Buddhists. More distance sites such as the birthplace of Lord Bhudda at Limbini or the Muktinath Temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu in the remote Muktinath Valley, require more pilgrimage effort to visit.
Each year thousands of Hindu pilgrims perform the holy Mansarovar Yatra by cleansing in beautiful Lake Mansarovar and circumnavigating the holy and majestic nearby Mount Kailash. Mount Kailash is considered a sacred place to four religions Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Bon. According to Hindu mythology mount Kailash is the abode of Lord Shiva and circumnavigating Mount Kailash on foot is a holy ritual.
In addition there are a multitude of monasteries located in remote and beautiful valleys across Nepal that draw pilgrim visitors for study and personal enlightenment.
