I went for this trek with my gal pals and had an amazing time in the snow covered mountains. The trek is quite difficult maybe because we were trekking for the first time. For a moment I though I can actually jump and touch Himalayas, they appear that close…I loved everything. I’m definitely going for this again sometime!

You can pick up this trek if you are in the mood of mediocre level of difficulties during the trek. Plenty of good things on the way will keep you filled with excitement. Do not miss the sunrise views in any of the day. They will simply add more fun and excitement to your Om Parvat Trek. Also, make sure that you pack your backpack well and avoid carrying too much load. All the best folks!

Overview

About the Destinations: An ancient magical and inspiring Himalayan peak, the Om Parvat trek has a vast collection of mythological stories around it. Rising to an altitude of 6,191m, this peak is also referred to by several other names such as Adi Kailash, Chota Kailash, Baba Kailash, and Jonglingkong. A virgin peak largely because of its religious significance, the most astounding trait of this peak is the miraculous impression of “OM” naturally formed with the deposition of snow against black background of the mountain.

Being the only one to be discovered among 8 such natural “OM” formations in the Himalayas, Om Parvat is also part of the Kailash trilogy in the Himalayas which consists of Kailash Manasasarovar (Bada Kailash – Tibet, China), Adi Kailash (Chota Kailash, Om Parvat – Kumaon, Uttarakhand), and Kinnaur Kailash (Himachal Pradesh). A moderately difficult alpine trek, this trail is for the experienced seasoned trekker.

    By God, it was the best trek for me so far. As I cannnot claim to be a hardcore trekker, the Om Parvat Trek gave me enough of the challenges and the much needed adrenaline rush. All in all, it was a marvelous experience all together.

    It was good to complete this trek without such problems and difficulties. Uttarakhand has always been my favourite destination for trekking, and this one was amongst my planned treks. On the trek, keep calm, follow the instructions properly and finish it in the best possible ways.

    Heard a lot about the Om Parvat from my grandma. But after completing this trek, even I found it so much beautiful and fascinating. You can expect a bit of obstacles but most of the trek will be easy and pleasant like any other treks in Himachal or Himalayas.
