Best Time to Visit Adi Kailash Yatra
Which is the best time to plan your visit to Adi Kailash and Om Parvat? The best time to visit Adi Kailash and Om Parvat is from the end of April, the whole of May, and the start of June. This is the summer season and the weather is pleasant with clear skies. Daytime temperatures during this time can be 19 degrees Celsius. At night they can drop to 1 degree and therefore we will advise you to pack some warm clothing. Landslides do occur at this time of the year, so it is advisable to keep an eye on the weather as it can change quickly in the high altitudes of this mountainous region. Apart from this season, September is another season when you can visit these mountain peaks.

Adi Kailash and Om Parvat – two sacred mountain peaks of Uttarakhand

These mountain peaks are very sacred as they are deeply connected to Lord Shiva. On the one hand, Adi Kailash is part of the Panch Kailash tourist circuit, while on the other hand, Om Parvat is part of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. Both these mountain peaks are located in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand. Generally speaking, tourists do a tour of both these mountains on the same trip. Many people think that Adi Kailash and Om Parvat are the same mountain peaks. But both these are separate mountain peaks and you should not assume that they are the same. Om Parvat is very famous as the snow on the mountain appears in the shape of an OM symbol.

Which other season is best to visit Adi Kailash and Om Parvat?

September and October and even the beginning of November are the best time to visit Adi Kailash Yatra and Om Parvat. This is post-monsoon season and the rains have stopped. The temperatures are not cold, but you should take woolen clothes with you. But nights can be cold so be prepared for that. The roads can have snow, and mud, and can be dangerous in places. We highly recommend that you keep an eye on the weather and road conditions during this time. Many places are dangerous for driving and there is a constant danger of landslides also. But the weather is pleasant and you can get clear views of both these mountain peaks in September and October months.
