Adi Kailash Om Parvat Yatra



Adi Kailash is one of the abodes of Lord Shiva in the Himalayas. The mountain also known as Chota Kailash is noted for a natural formation of the Sanskrit word Om from snow. Adi Kailash – altitude of 4,700 meters – is located in Pithoragarh District of Uttarakhand, India.

On the way to Adi Kailash, Yatris are greeted by the snow peaks of Annapurna, thick forests, Kali River, Ashrams, numerous waterfalls and the Parvati Taal. And then there are the innocent and affectionate locals of the region living in villages named after characters in Hindu Mythology and with stories that relate their villages to Hindu Epics.

The duration of the Yatra is 18 to 20 days and includes hazardous trek at high altitudes.

Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Limited, one of the official tourism boards of Uttarakhand, usually conducts the guided yatra.
