Mystery of the unclimbed peak- Kailash Mountain

-

- Advertisment -

The highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest has a height of 8,848 meters above sea level and has yet been climbed by 4,000 people.

Mount Kailash,  on the other hand, stands 6638 meters (21778 ft) tall and its summit is still unclimbed by any human so far.

Many believe that the legendary mountain is where Lord Shiva resides sitting in a  state of perpetual meditation along with his wife Parvati, and it was him who makes the mountain unclimbable for mortals. 

In 1926, Hugh Rutledge, an English civil servant, and mountaineer along with Colonel R.C Wilson had made an attempt to climb the legendary mountain.

Accompanying them was a sherpg called Satan and the three spent seizable time around the mountain. Ruffedge considered the north face of Kailash to be 6,000ft high and called it utterly unclimbable.

Colonel Wilson claimed that “just when I discovered an easy walk to the summit of the mountain, heavy snow began to fall, making the ascent impossible”.

Another mountaineer, a Russian climber, Sergei Cistiakov said “ when we approached the foot of the mountain, my heart was pounding.

He said, “I was in front of the sacred mountain, Mount (SIC) which cannot be beaten. I felt very emaciated and suddenly I became captivated by the thought that I do not belong on this mountain. It must necessarily come back! As soon we started the descent, I felt liberated”.

History states while there have been many attempts to conquer the mountain, no one has been successful in the endeavor.

There has always been one or the other reason why the mountain could not be scaled. While the story of Lord Shiva residing at the peak of it excites many, the same as what people believe is the reason why no one has ever climbed to the top of it.

The last recorded attempt at climbing Mt. Kailash was – when the Chinese government had given permission to a Spanish team to climb the peak in 2002. However, it was followed by an instant outrage among people across the world whose faiths believe that Kailash is the holiest.
