When the start of Saga appears on a full moon day in the fourth month of the Tibetan lunar calendar, it marks the beginning of the Saga Dawa festival. This festival has a high degree of religious importance among Tibetans and Buddhists from all around the world. Both Mount Kailash and the city of Lhasa are holy places to Buddhist devotees and these two places attract a considerable number of pilgrims during this time from all over the world.
The festival lasts for a month. This was the month of the birth of Buddha Sakyamuni. Not only that, he attained both enlightenment and maha nirvana in this month. It is to commemorate these extraordinary phases in the life of Buddha that this festival is celebrated. Encircling Mt. Kailash in the practice of Kora as a religious tribute has increased value according to Buddhists during this time of the year. It is a grand affair to visit Mt. Kailash during this time and you will see yourself transcend into a different world.
Himalayan Trekkers considers this occasion to be an exclusive opportunity for the tourists to connect with the culture and explore deeply.
