How Difficult is Adi Kailash Om Parvat Yatra?

The Adi Kailash and Om Parvat Yatra is generally considered to be of easy difficulty. Here’s why:

Previously, this trek was quite difficult due to undeveloped roads. However, now that jeep transportation covers most of the route, the journey has become much more accessible, especially for older or less fit pilgrims. The remaining trek distance is just 4 km from Jolingkong (Adi Kailash Base Camp) to Parvati Kund and back.

Despite the improvements, the trek still presents some challenges. There are steep ascents and descents, and the roads can be rough and unpaved. At Jolingkong (Adi Kailash Base Camp), you’ll be at an altitude of about 4,572 meters (15,000 feet), and at Nabhidhang (Om Parvat Base Camp), around 4,300 meters (14,107 feet). This high altitude can cause altitude sickness and make walking difficult, particularly for elderly pilgrims.


The best time to visit Adi Kailash Om Parvat is May-June and September-October. These months offer favorable weather conditions for trekking and exploring the region. The temperatures are moderate, with daytime temperatures ranging from 7°C to 15°C and nighttime temperatures ranging from 0°C to -2 °C. It is important to note that weather conditions can vary, so it’s always recommended to check the local forecast before planning your visit.
