Adi Kailash

After you have measured and felt Kinnaur Kailash your eyes would be thirsting for more. And in fact, there are more! Adi Kailash is an ancient holy place in the Himalayan Range, similar to Mount Kailash in Tibet. The beauty of the peak lies in its remote location. The best way to see it is to trek and trekking to Adi Kailash in the Himalayan ranges of Kumaun Region near the Indo Tibetan Border in district Pithoragarh, is an experience in itself.

Up to Gunji the route is the same. One walks 14 km, first to the left of Kuti and then right, to reach Jollingkong (4572 m). The river Kuti and its bridge will perhaps may be under a thick blanket of snow. And if they are then you can consider yourself lucky. The thick blanket of snow makes it look magical.

Jonglingkong is called Chhota Kailash (small Kailash) (6191 m) while its relatively small but beautiful lake is called Parvati Tal. The reflection of the peak in the lake will leave you spellbound. There is a temple near the lake, which is sometimes visited by swan-like birds. A little distance from here the remains of a dry lake will leave you mystified. Along the river Kuti are two passes - Lampia Dhura and Mangsa Dhura - leading to Tibet.
The ITBP and SPF personnel will tell whether one can cross the Sinla pass to reach Bedang. If this is not possible one will have to return. If there is little or no snow, one should set out early in the morning to cross the pass. The route to Sinla pass is under a heavy blanket of snow. One can see the Chhota Kailash peak constantly from there.
