The main peak of the Gangdise Range, Kangrinboqe Peak (Mount Kailas) (http://www.chinaculture.org/gb/en_curiosity/2003-11/26/content_44349.htm) is situated within Purang County. Its 6,714-m-high summit is perpetually snow-covered and attracts thousands of Chinese and foreign pilgrims every year. Its sharp, pyramid-like summit pierces right through the clouds. Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, Bon religion and Jainism all regard Kangrinboqe Peak the “center of the world” and “king of all divine mountains.” It stands quietly on the expanse of the open, tranquil wilderness, by a vast and deep lake under azure sky.
