MOUNT KAILASH SACRED RIVERS IN WESTERN TIBET

MOUNT KAILASH: FOUR SACRED RIVERS IN WESTERN TIBET
Tibet is the source of most rivers in Asia. The four major Asian rivers have their sources on all four sides of Kailash. These four rivers flow across Asia, and a huge population of the neighboring countries depends on the water from these rivers.
Brahmaputra River. Yarlung Tsangpo
The source of the river is on the east side of Kailash. The name Brahmaputra comes from the Indian language. The river flows along the southern part of Tibet, into India, and then to Bangladesh, where it merges with the Ganges River and finally reaches the Bay of Bengal. In Tibet, the Niyang River and the Lhasa River are tributaries of the Yarlung Tsangpo River.
Sutlej River. Langchen Khabub
The Sutlej River originates at the foot of Mount Kailash from a modern glacier near Langta. The Sutlej flows west to Tada County in Tibet, the most important river in the Ali province of the Tibet Autonomous Region. After that, it enters Himachal Pradesh in India. The section in India is called the Sutlej River. From there, it flows further to Pakistan.
Indus River. Singgye Khabub 
The source of the river is to the north of Kailash. It is one of the major rivers in Western Tibet. The river flows from the southeast to the northwest. At the Tashigang Border Station in Tibet, it merges with another important tributary that originates in the northern foothills of the Himalayas in Tibet. After entering the Kashmir region in India, it flows further through Pakistan into the Indian Ocean.
Karnali – tributary of the Ganges River. Macha Khabub 
The Karnali River originates near Lake Manasarovar, to the south of Kailash. Its source is in a glacier to the north of Gudron-la in the Himalayas in Purang County. Karnali is a tributary of the Ganges or Ganga River. From Western Tibet, the river flows to Nepal (where it is the longest river in Nepal), and then further to India. It runs through the southern part of Purang County, called Simicott Town (mainly Tibetan) in Nepal. It enters Nepalese territory and then flows into the Ganges River, which flows through India and into the Indian Ocean.
