Mount Kailash here seen some 35km away I am at Manasarowar tso.

 

Mount Kailash 6638m (Tibetan: གངས་རིན་པོ་ཆེ, Gang Rinpoche; Kailāśā Parvata) is a peak in the Gangdisê Mountains, which are part of the Himalayas in Tibet. It lies near the source of some of the longest rivers in Asia: the Indus River, the Sutlej River (a major tributary of the Indus River), the Brahmaputra River, and the Karnali River (a tributary of the Ganges River). It is considered as a sacred place in four religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and the Bön faith. In Hinduism, it is considered to be the abode of Lord Shiva. The mountain lies near Lake Manasarowar and Lake Rakshastal in Tibet.
