About this tour

Adi Kailash holds a deep historical and spiritual significance as an ancient pilgrimage site, tracing back to a time when pilgrimages held great importance in Hinduism. Pilgrims from all corners of India journeyed to Adi Kailash seeking heavenly blessings, spiritual enlightenment, and a stronger connection with the divine. The revered Adi Kailash mountain is prominently featured in Hindu mythology, notably recounted in the Mahabharata. It’s where the Pandava brothers and Draupadi embarked on a sacred pilgrimage to seek Lord Shiva’s blessings, believed to have cleansed their souls and contributed to their triumph in the battle of Kurukshetra.

Similarly, Maa Parvati’s longing to be close to Lord Shiva led her to undertake intense spiritual practices at Adi Kailash, such as meditation and prayer, showcasing her unwavering dedication. Touched by her love and devotion, Lord Shiva granted her wish and chose Adi Kailash as their abode, highlighting their profound bond and Lord Shiva’s compassion towards his devotees. Pilgrims visiting Adi Kailash with pure hearts and dedication can seek blessings from Lord Shiva. Maa Parvati’s story serves as a reminder for pilgrims to approach the journey with reverence, surrender, and a deep connection to the divine, aspiring for spiritual growth and the fulfillment of their wishes.

Adi Kailash Itinerary

 

Day 01: Kathgodam to Pithoragarh

  • The trip starts at Kathgodam where we’ll pick you up from a pre-defined point. We will take the route via Tanakpur which is more convenient for the pilgrims (especially senior citizens) as against the road taken via Almora, which includes traveling through a lot of bends and curves. The total distance from Kathgodam to Lohaghat is around 180 kilometers.
  • We will enjoy the scenic views of Champawat while going to Lohaghat. The Golu Devta Temple in Champawat will be a key attraction on Day 1. Also known as Nyay K Devta (The Lord of Justice), Golu Devta is famous amongst the pilgrims for providing instant justice to the people. The interesting part is that any disputes occurring in the area are mostly solved at this temple rather than by visiting any court! The procedure involves writing a letter to Goljyu addressing the issue and it is believed that justice occurs naturally after the letter is submitted! The Goljyu Temple in Champawat is the origin behind all the other Golu Temples in Kumaon, like Chitai Golu Temple and Ghorakhal Golu Temple! What’s more interesting is that we’ll be visiting even Chitai Golu Temple while returning.
  • Meals: Evening tea snacks and Dinner.

 

Day 02: Pithoragarh to Nabi Village via Dharchula

  • After breakfast, we’ll set off for Nabi Village, covering a total distance of 180 kilometers on Day 2 of our journey.
  • Upon reaching Dharchula, our documents will undergo thorough scrutiny, and we’ll undergo medical examinations at the Government Hospital. Subsequently, we’ll be issued the Inner Line Permit (ILP) required for our Adi-Kailash Yatra. Obtaining the ILP is crucial due to the proximity of the region to Tibet and Nepal, necessitating clearance from the local administration for security reasons.
  • Dharchula is a quaint town situated near the international border of India and Nepal. The Kali River, which flows alongside Dharchula (India) and Darchula (Nepal), serves as a natural boundary separating both countries. We’ll spend the night in Homestay in Nabi Village.
