In addition, the Potala palace holds sacred values as its name is derived from Mt. Potalaka, which is a mythical residence of the Buddhist god ‘Avalokitesvara’.
The stairway to paradise, especially in Hinduism, the residence of Lord Shiva, Mount Kailash, is one of the most visited places in Tibet. The mountain is 6638 meters tall, and mountaineering in this region is strictly prohibited due to the religious significance it carries for Buddhists, Hindus, and Jains worldwide.
