Two beautiful lakes, namely Mansarovar and Rakshas Tal, are located at the base of Kailash parvat. Of the two, Mansarovar, which lies at an altitude of 14, 950 ft, is considered the highest freshwater body in the world.
There are 4 faces of the kailash. All the edges of each particular face of the mountain is perfectly aligned to the cardinal points, meaning that each face is facing straight towards one of the directions given on the axis (North, South, East, West).
