Mt Kailash (6,714 m) is a holy cultural site in the Himalaya, worshiped by devotees of different religions including Bon, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. More than 30,000 km2, the Kailash Sacred Landscape (KSL) spreads over parts of three countries – China, India, and Nepal – is home to approximately 200,000 households. KSL provides multiple onsite and offsite ecosystem services, which local residents and visitors enjoy. KSL is remote from primary road networks and, for this reason, households in this area are strongly reliant on the surrounding ecosystem for goods and services.
