Every year many people plan for the Kinner Kailash yatra without any fear. But, according to Hindu Mythology, Kinner Kailash Trek is a sacred place in the Indian Himalayas associated with Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati. A natural pond/Kund near Kinnar Kailash peak, known as Parvati Kund, is considered Goddess Parvati’s creation. The path leading to the mountains is not easy, and it is the most challenging Trek. The Kinner Kailash Parvath is at the height of 17200 ft above sea level, and the Kinner Kailash range is in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh near the Indo Tibetan border.
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. It is also known as ‘Aashiqi Park’ as it is a meeting point of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. The locals of the region help you to reach this rock. It takes 2-3 days to complete the Trek.
Kinner Kailash is a 14 km long trek which is not an easy one. If you wish to trek, you will surely enjoy the beauty of nature and surroundings.
There are snow-clad mountains, lush greenery forests, and green apple orchards. The landscape view on its way is mind-blowing, and it makes the Trek more exciting. Through this Trek, you will reach Sangla valley and Hanging Valley, where you can see nature at its best. It is the land of tales and legends, and once you are there, the view is undoubtedly worth the hard work of trekking to Mount Kailash.
The starting point, i.e. the base camp of the Trek, is Tangling Village in Himachal Pradesh. It is located at the height of 7050 ft on the banks of the Satluj river. From there, you can take Jhoola Pul, i.e. the hanging bridge, for the further journey.
From tangling, you reach Malang Khata, which is 8 km, and then Parvati Kund, which is 5 km from there. After moving one kilometer, you go to Kinner Kailash Shivlingam to seek the services of a guide you can take from the Tangling village.
The Trek starts from May to October every year. However, it is recommended to go between September and October. The region experiences heavy rainfall during June, July, and August, making it difficult for the trekkers. Avoid going during these months, as landslides are expected during the monsoon period. Remember to avoid trekking at night.
While going on a trek, remember to carry few things that are necessary for you. A few suggested things are woollen clothes as the temperature is cool, trekking shoes/boots, walking stick as the road is a bit dangerous, sunglasses, water bottle, energy drinks, windcheaters, first aid box, flashlight, and batteries, etc.
If you are planning to Trek to Kinner Kailash Parvath, remember to avoid going during the monsoon period. Every year thousands of devotees go trekking, and it is quite a difficult task. It would be best if you were careful while traveling as the chances of road accidents are more. Natural calamities such as landslides are common.
Before starting the journey, remember to be careful. Kinner Kailash trekking gives striking views of the snow-cold desert mountains, fertile green valleys, and vast fields of stunning orchard flowers. The natural beauty of the place is beautiful for tourists.
