Embark on a Spiritual Odyssey: Adi Kailash Om Parvat Trek in the Uttarakhand Himalayas

Join us on an extraordinary journey to the mystical Adi Kailash Om Parvat Trek, standing tall at an elevation of 6191 meters in the Dharchula district of Uttarakhand. This trek offers a unique blend of challenging terrain, scenic beauty, and profound spiritual significance.

Om Parvat

The Spiritual Essence: Adi Kailash and Om Parvat

The Adi Kailash Om Parvat Trek takes you to the heart of spirituality, with Adi Kailash being close to Sin La and Brahma Parvat, and Om Parvat located near Nabidang on the Indo-Nepal border. The Massif Mountain is recognized as “Om Parvat” due to its distinct “OM” shape and “Adi Kailash” because of its resemblance to Mt. Kailash, making it a site of deep religious connection and jaw-dropping adventure.

Best Monsoon Trek

Unexplored and undisturbed, the Adi Kailash and Om Parvat trek retains its pristine beauty. The optimal trekking time is from June to October, making it one of the rare treks best experienced during the monsoon.

The Kailash Trilogy in the Himalayas:

Nestled in the peaceful Himalayas of Uttarakhand, Om Parvat is the oldest resting place of Shiva and holds great significance for Hindus. The Kailash trilogy includes Kailash Mansarovar, Adi Kailash, and Kinnaur Kailash, believed to be abodes of Lord Shiva, Parvat, Ganesha, and Kartikeya.
