Sacred Mountains

Hedgehog House photographers have images of many of the world's sacred mountains and spiritual places of pilgrimage for the religions of Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, North American Indians etc - including Mt Kailas, Kailash, Aoraki, Mt Cook, Kilimanjaro, Shivling, Denali, (Mt McKinley), Everest (Chomolungma, Sagarmatha). "Manosarovar, the lake created from the mind of Brahma, is the holiest in the world...called by the Tibetans Tso Mapham - the 'unconquered' or 'precious lake' - is 14,950 feet above the sea and its waters are sweet, not salt as are so many lakes in Tibet. Very blue it was as we saw it in the continuous deluge of sunlight which so often illumines this country north of the cloud-gathering Himalaya - its extended coasts were bright gold, with the glaciers of Gurla,25,350 feet, to the south and the snow-capped cone of still more famous kailas to the north...This peak, 22,028 feet, is arrestingly isolated, solitary: a great pyramid of black rock capped with snow. It is Ti-se of the Tibetans, sometimes written of as Kangchen Rimpoche, the Precious Ice Mountain, the centre of the universe." Tom Longstaff...This My Voyage, 1950.
