Hemant Pawar shot this picture during his Kailash Mansarovar Yatra in June.

"There was snowfall overnight before we started the parikrama of the mountain. As my group progressed ahead, I stayed back to walk with a injured lady and our guide and also spend some time clicking pictures. And lo behold! On the west wall of Mount Kailash, the face appeared (circled). Is the legend true? Very few people talk of seeing a face, but I had never seen a picture or believed it till I saw one myself," he writes.
