The mountain is located near Lake Manasarovar and Lake Rakshastal, close to the source of some of the longest Asian rivers: the Indus, Sutlej, Brahmaputra, and Karnali also known as Ghaghara in India.

The Indus River is one of the longest rivers in Asia, originating in the Tibetan Plateau in the vicinity of Lake Manasarovar, the river runs a course through Ladakh towards the Gilgit-Baltistan region Hindukush ranges, and then flows in a southerly direction along the entire length of Pakistan to merge into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Sindh.

The Brahmaputra, called Yarlung Tsangpo in Tibet and Dihang River in Arunachal Pradesh, is a trans-boundary river which flows through China, India and Bangladesh.

Lake Rakshastal is a lake in Tibet Autonomous Region, China, lying just west of Lake Manasarovar and south of Mount Kailash.
