There are eight holy mountains in Tibetan area in China,seven of them are female, Kawadgarbo is male,as well as the first and leader of others.Tibetan respectfully call it “A Ji Kawadgarbo” which means “Grandfather Kawadgarbo”,and Tibetan believes that he helps people drive away evil spirit.

In 2001,local govemment issued a new legislation which is not allow people to climb Kawadgarbo anymore.

Pilgrims treks around Kawadgarbo for weeks to pay homage to the holy mountain every year. There are two trekking route,one is outer circumambulation,another one is inner circumambulation.
