Adi Kailash- OM Parvat Expedition

Om Parvat Programme covered mountains, beautiful rivers, peaks, which seems to touch the sky green meadows and treacherous glaciers make this area a heaven for those seeking high adrenaline closes


Breif Description Of The Program : Adi Kailash (Popularly known as Chotta Kailash and one of the Panch Kailash)is in many ways 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 ‘Mansarovar’ but much smaller than the original, on the bark of the sarovar local people have erected a temple to Shiva and parvati. When we enter this magical place, for the moment you feel that why the God choose this place for their abode.

OM Parvat : From Kalapani where the Kali river originates and then on to Nabidhang (3987 m) (Lipupass is only 9 kms 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 black background.

Adi Kailash : Om Parvat Programme covered mountains, beautiful rivers, peaks, which seems to touch the sky green meadows and treacherous glaciers make this area a heaven for those seeking high adrenaline closes.
