According to Hindu Mythology, Lord Shiva is living among us on the Mountains of Adi Kailash with Ma Parvati and their sons Lord Ganesh and Kartikeya. Adi Kailash, also known as Chota Kailash or Little Kailash is one of India's highly revered pilgrimage destinations and equally beautiful to witness. This perennial snow-capped mountain has impressive altitude of 6310 metres and is in a town named Kuti on the Indo-Tibetan border in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand. Kuti is a town connected to legend of Mahabharat referring to one of its major characters Kunti.

A visit to this venerable destination of the Kumaon region serves the pilgrims with inner peace and the great power of Adi Kailash introduces pilgrims to self-purification. You also get to witness the auspicious Parvati Lake and Gauri Kund at the foot of the Adi Kailash Mountain.

The Adi Kailash yatra has yet another significant destination Om Parvat. This is an eternally beautiful mountain that had its name because of the nature's miracle that caused the snow on this peak to form the shape of "Om" which is a Vedic word representing the essence of supreme absolute and consciousness. When confronting Om Parvat, one gets the feeling of being in front of Lord Shiva himself.
The Adi Kailash & Om Parvat yatra 2024 takes you through magical places like the miraculous stream of Sumchuma near Adi Kailash Mountain which flows for three days and then stops for next three. The pilgrims also will visit the Shiva Temple at the foot of Adi Kailash where recently Indian PM Modiji visited too.
