Mount Gurla Mandata (Namo Nani) is the neighboring mountain, which is situated very close to the sacred mountain called Mount Kailash. It lies in the western side of the Himalayan ranges in the Burang part of Tibet. The local people call it the ‘Namo Nani’ meaning the "Fairy's Peak" and it is made of six ridges. The west ridge is like the Fan shaped and East Ridge is with very much steeper cliffs. Towards its North the holy lake Manasarovar and Langatse are situated. Gurla Mandata's base camp is situated at an altitude of 5600m on the glacier.
Gurla Mandata (Namo Nani) Mountain was first climbed by Sino-Japanese expedition in 1985. After that only 5 expeditions have successfully made to this mountain so far.
The way to the ascent goes via Zalonpa glacier from the Northern slope. From the top of the Gurla Mandata, you can see the beautiful sparkling lakes Manasarovar and Rakchays (Demon lake); and then the mount Kailash peak can be seen along this on its background. The ascent can be started from the Zalunpa glacier.
The famous Mount Kailash peak and Manasarovar Lake are on the way to this Gurla Mandata Expedition trip and mostly the Indian Hindu visitors are found thronging to visit this holy place as pilgrimage in huge numbers.
