Tour overview

Adi Kailash

Adi Kailash Popularly known as Chota Kailash is in many ways a replica of the better-known Mt. Kailash in Tibet, especially in appearance. Adi-Kailash, however, is in Indian Territory close to the Indo-Tibetan border, it is an area of great natural beauty, peace, and serenity.

Men and women, tired by the incessant roar of urban life, will find here a healing quietude, conducive to looking inward and discoursing with one’s inner self.

At the very foot of Mt. Kailash is Gauri Kund, whose water reflects the mountain itself. Close by is Parvati Sarovar, also called ‘Manasarovar’ but much smaller than the original, on the bark of the Sarovar local people have erected a temple of Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati.

In Gunji Indian Sadhus or pilgrims offered their prayer here to Lord Shiva and took their journey to Kutti followed by Jyolingkong at an altitude of over 14,364 feet to have a darshan of this holy mountain

Om Parvat

From Gunji the route branches off to Kalapani where the Kaali River originates and then on to Nabidhang (13,993 feet) (Lipupass is only 9 km ahead). At Nabidhang we can see “Aum Parvat” a miracle of nature, snow lies in the mountain in the shape of a perpetual “Aum” the primordial sound.

All other slopes may be bare but this inscription in snow is everlasting and as one observes it, one gets the feeling that the mountain itself is Lord Shiv incarnate- the destroyer, showing himself in a rare glimpse. One can see white (snow) Aum on a black background.

No hypothesis, no assumption and no imagination are required to visualize “Aum”. The symbol and guide to mediation connecting man, God and the Universe chanted at the beginning and finale of all proceedings, extolled in the Upnishads as the best and most effective symbol of God.

“Adi Kailash Yatra come in adventure segment so it’s not smooth like regular pleasure packages. Roads after Dharchula are not smooth enough & generally covered by Bolero/Bolero Camper. We allow to sit only 4-5 persons in one cab to make it slightly better.
Above are the tentative plan for Adi Kailash & Om Parvat Yatra 2024 & may be modified for betterment or managing the availabilities and contingencies. But in all scenarios, we will put our best efforts to cover all mentioned places”.
