Adi Kailash stands at a great height of 6,191 metres and is located in India, close to the Indo-Tibetan border. The region around the peak is peaceful, soothing and incredibly beautiful. At the bottom of the mighty peak quietly exists a lake, known as Gaurikund, which beautifully mirrors the Adi Kailash, Parvati Sarovar (also known as Manasarovar) is another lake near the peak. It is much smaller than its namesake (Manasarovar Lake, Tibet). Near the shoreline stands a shrine of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. After the Chinese occupation of Tibet, Chotta Kailash has been looked up as the closest and most respected substitute of Mt. Kailash.

Through the Adi-Kailash Trek, one will witness the amazing snow-clad peaks of Annapurna, dense forest, several waterfalls, surging Kali River, lovely diversity of wild flowers and fruits at Narayan Ashram, and much more. Mount Adi Kailash and Parvati Sarovar are ancient holy places for Hindus in the Kumaon Himalayas.
