Chhota Kailash (Adi Kailash) Trek

  Trekking Programme Duration : 17 Days


To see the greatness of a mountain, one must keep one's distance; to understand its form, one must move around it; to experience its moods, one must see it at sunrise and sunset, at noon and at mid-night, in sun and in rain in all other season, He who can see the mountain like this, comes near to the life of the mountain a life that is as intense and varied as that of a human being."

Mt. Adi-Kailash - popularly known as Chhota-Kailash, is in indian territory, close to the Indian tibetan border. It is an area of great natural beauty, peace and sovereignty. Men and women, tired by the incessant roar of urban life, will find here a healing quietude conducive to liking inward and discouraging with one's innerself. During Adi-Kailash Yatra, you will come across the mighty splendour 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 water falls.

At the very foot of Mt. Kailash is Gauri Kund, whose water reflect the mountain itself. The local folk, called Bhotias, have much to say about there land. The villege Kutti, is named after Kunti, the mother of Pandavas. The great saga vyas lived here for a long time and wrote many books. The bhotias have preserved their heritage assiduously and are always ready to show glimpses ot it through their dance and music.

In this very exciting trekking region, one not only walks along a large portion of the Kailas - Mansarovar route, but also gets to know and understand the social and cultural life of the people living in the Chaudans, Byans and Darma valleys. The journey begins and ends at Tawaghat, the confluence of the river Kali and Dhauli E. in district Pithoragarh.
