Kailash seems to be an important place to visit. I am curious if it would be considered a priority over Bodh Gaya, Sarnath, etc. for Vajrayana practitioners.

What Bodhigaya is to Buddhists, Mt. Kailash is to Bönpo.
Mt. Kailash is considered important for vajrayana practicioners because it's linked to Chakrasamvara and Vajravarahi.

For Vajrayana practitioners Yanglesho/Asura cave is as important as Bodh Gaya so it is said.
