Tirthapuri sacred hot spring
Rutok pilgrims gather to pray and drink a cup of the sacred water at the hot springs of Tirthapuri, in Ngari Province in the far west of Tibet. Located northwest of Mount Kailash, the Tirthapuri Hot Springs are closely associated with Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche). Pilgrims bathe in pools fed by the springs, visit the monastery containing the guru's footprint and dig for healing stones along a one-hour pilgrimage route.
