Holy Kinner Kailash Trek
Holy Kinner Kailash Trek: Overview
This wonderful Trek in Kinnaur circuits the revered Kinnaur Kailash mountain. Kinnaur was forbidden to trekkers till a few years ago. Consequently these trails have been less used and over explored last about two centuries ago. The Kinnaur Kailash Range borders the Disctrict of Kinnaur in the south and is dominated by the Kinnaur Kailash (6349 Mts) and Jonkarden (6473 Mts) peaks. The only pass on this trek is the Charang La at an awesome altitude of 5300 Mts above sea level .The trek is challenging and also rewarding for experienced trekkers. Kinner Kailash Parikrma is one of the toughest treks in Himachal, around the holy Mount Kailash, also called Kinner Kailash in Kinnaur. One of the most challenging treks in the Indian Himalayan region, the Kinner Kailash Parikrama trek takes you into a deep wilderness of the Kinnaur region in Himachal.It’s a 60 Km trek, which starts in Thangi through Charang, Lalan Ti, crossing Charang La pass (17,194 ft) and ends in Chitkul village - the last inhabited village accessible by road, near the Indo-Tibet border in Baspa valley of Kinnaur, Himachal. it’s a difficult trek and there are no specific directions to follow, just a few stones kept on top of each other by former trekkers marks the path.There is no cellular connectivity here or any villages on the way, so unless you have a compass and a map, or a guide, you’re sure to get lost. It’s a non-touristy, difficult trek and the most difficult part is the climb up Charang La pass.

Folklore about Kinner Kailash
According to Hindu Mythology this is a very sacred place in the Indian Himalayas as it is associated with lord Shiva and Mata Parvati. A natural pond/Kund near Kinnar Kailash peak, known as Parvati Kund, is considered to be a creation of Goddess Parvati. She worshipped here for a long time. It is also the meeting place for Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati . For this reason Ganesh Park or Kailash Darshan Park was earlier called Ashiqui Park.
Mythology states that Lord Shiva conducted a meeting of Goddesses and Gods at Kinner Kailash peak every winter. This accounts for the Yatra that takes place every year during this time by devotees of Lord Shiva and local deities.
