Adi Kailash Trekking Tour Kumaon, Uttrakhand

Situated at an altitude of 5,945 metres, this mountain located in the Pithoragarh district of Uttarkahand has successfully garnered the attention of all the Lord Shiva worshippers and trekking lovers. Uttarakhand state has some of the most beautiful yet underrated hills and places that are suitable for trekking, the Adi Kailash Mountain being one of them. The route to Adi Kailash Base Camp winds through a fertile valley that is adorned with numerous tribal communities, agricultural grounds, and a great variety of flora and wildlife at various altitudes. It also passes past a number of tiny streams. The Annapurna Peak, which rises to a height of 8,091 metres in Nepal, may also be visible if you are fortunate. One of the difficult treks in the Kumaon Himalayan region that woos the spirit of many hikers is the Adi Kailash trip, which ranges in altitude from 2,200 metres to 4,752 metres.
