About this tour

The historical significance of Adi Kailash as an ancient pilgrimage site dates back to times when pilgrimages were esteemed in Hinduism. Pilgrims from across India sought heavenly benefits, spiritual awakening, and a closer connection with the divine, leaving behind a trail of devotion and vitality. The revered Adi Kailash mountain holds a central place in Hindu mythology, notably mentioned in the Mahabharata. The Pandavas brothers and their wife Draupadi embarked on a sacred pilgrimage seeking Lord Shiva’s blessings, stopping at Adi Kailash. This journey is believed to have purified their souls, contributing to their success in the battle of Kurukshetra.

Maa Parvati wished to be near Lord Shiva, so she prayed at Adi Kailash. Lord Shiva was moved and made Adi Kailash his home. This shows their bond and Lord Shiva’s care for devotees. Visitors with sincerity can seek blessings. Maa Parvati’s tale teaches reverence and connection to the divine for growth and wish fulfillment.

Adi Kailash Itinerary

 

Day 01: Kathgodam to Lohaghat

  • 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 Golu addressing the issue and it is believed that justice occurs naturally after the letter is submitted! The Golu 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.

“We will also be visiting the Baleshwar Temple in Champawat, which is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and built by the Chand Rulers in the 13th Century. The temple is highly revered in the area.”

“The Advaita Ashram Mayavati, established by Swami Vivekananda is famous not just in India, but across the world for having an environment that fosters meditation and is perfectly suited for people looking for peace and tranquility.”

Temples Covered : Golu Devta Temple- Champawat, Baleshwar Temple.
