Adi Kailash Trek

Adi Kailash Yatra 2023

Adi Kailash Trek

Adi Kailash (4770 M) also known as Chhota Kailash is an area filled with great natural beauty, peace and serenity with its appearance distinctly similar to Mount Kailash in Tibet. The area of Adi Kailash is in close proximity with Indian-Tibetan border. Trekking at Adi-Kailash routes will bring the people a healing quietude conducive to liking inward and discouraging with one's inner self.

The Starting point of trek is Lakhanpur which is 50 kms drive from Darchula goes via Lamari, Budhi, Nabhi, Nampha, Kutti, Jyollingkong, Nabidhang, Om Parvat and Kala paani, which is then joined with the Darma valley via the Shin La pass. This is a slightly tougher trek and being of a longer duration, the trek requires careful planning and detailed analysis keeping in mind the needs of the trekking. During Adi-Kailash trekking, the tourists will come across the mighty splendor of the snow peaks of Annapurna, the gushing Kali River, thick Forest, Narayan Ashram full of wild flowers and rare variation of fruits and number of waterfalls.

Further, the trek of Adi-Kailash will also take the trekkers to the famous Kali temple at Kalapani which is a very auspicious place and is 14 kms from Aum Parvat. Aum Parvat is on the way to Kailash Manasarovar and the snow deposition pattern gives the impression of the Hindu sacred syllable 'AUM' (?) written on it. Besides, the Sumchuma is a miracle stream found near Adi Kailash that flows every three days and halts for three days in a continuous circle throughout the year. Aachri Taal, Parvati Sarovar and Gauri Kund are some of the very auspicious and pristine water bodies in these regions.

According to this itinerary we will have to trek 76 kms less. More comfortable and less time consuming. Compare it with any itinerary you will see the difference.
