what do beliefs say

According to the legends, a shepherd was called by Lord Shankar himself according to the condition, but if the condition is broken, it was also said to become a stone idol, and that shepherd lost the condition and today he has become a stone idol. . Not only this, even humans and birds cannot go here. Legend has it that even a crow and a snake have turned to stone, because they too tried to climb. In the year 1968, an attempt was made to climb the mountain from the Indian and Japanese side, but it was not possible and this team was unsuccessful in its attempt.
