Adi or Chota Kailash is a popular Hindu pilgrimage in India. Located in the Pithoragarh district of Devbhoomi Uttarakhand, the sacred Yatra to Adi Kailash and Om Parvat is a deeply soul purifying journey. Its importance lies in the fact that it displays the splitting image of Mount Kailash, the holy abode of Lord Shiva. Om Parvat seems like a natural miracle in itself. The mountain looks like it has been naturally carved out the word OM, which is a spellbinding experience in itself. Although a challenging Yatra, every bit of it is worth the effort.
