Adi Kailash, often referred to as Chhota Kailash, is a mountain in the Indian state of Uttarakhand that rises 5,945 metres above sea level. This piece of abode is situated in Kuti, the last village in India's Kumaon area. Kuti, a town on the Indo-Tibetan border, is named after Kunti, the legendary Pandava family's mother and one of the most important figures in the Mahabharata. Adi Kailash, also known as Baba Kailash, is thought to be the residence of Lord Shiva, who shares this location with Goddess Parvati and their offspring, Lord Ganesha and Lord Kartikeya. Thus, no other spiritual journey can provide the amount of inner isolation, great power, and self-purification that the trek to Adi Kailash brings, which is also better referred to as a sacred pilgrimage.

This venerable Adi Kailash yatra begins in Lakhanpur. To get to the starting point, Lakhanpur, you must go from Darchula through the picturesque hamlets of Lamari, Budhi, Nabhi, Kutti, Jyolingkong, Nabidhang, Om Parvat, and Kala Paanj. The Darma Valley is joined by the road after passing through the Shin La Pass. The pilgrims will experience the majesty of the snow-capped Annapurna Mountains, lush forests, the gushing Kali River, the vibrant gardens of Narayan Ashram, an abundance of flora, and multiple cascading waterfalls on this moderate to difficult route.

In addition to this, pilgrims will pass by the renowned Kali Temple at Kalapani, which is around 14 kilometres from the beautiful Aum or Om Parvat, during their auspicious Adi Kailash journey. Om Parvat is situated in the beautiful Himalayas at a height of 5,570 metres. Om Parvat got its name because the melting snow at the peak resembles the holy symbol in Hinduism, "Om or ?." Visitors will also explore the miraculous stream in Sumchuma, which is close to Adi Kailash. It's an amazing stream that, on a rotational basis throughout the year, flows for three days and then stops for the following three days. Moreover, visitors are going to visit blessed water bodies including Aachri Taal, Parvati Sarovar, and Gauri Kund on this sacred journey.
