The Sin La pass connects the Darma Valley to the Kuthi Yangti valley which forms the Adi Kailash trek. A tough walk through the glacial moraines and scree zones for a prolonged period of some 8 hours joins the 2 valleys and makes for one of the most high earned treks in the Himalayas.


Adi Kailash Trek - Kuthi Yangti Valley 

Also known as the Chota Kailash Trek, this trek is not just a spiritual pilgrimage. Part of this trek follows the Kailash Mansovar trek route before diverging at Gunji to head towards Jolingkong and Parvati Sarover.

Starting from Dharchula with a winding drive to Sosa, this trek passes through some of the remote villages of Kutthi Yangti Valley on the Indo - Sino - Nepal border. After passing by the villages of Gala, Budhi, Gunji, Kutti you take yourself to Jolingkong alomst at the base of Om Parvat. A small hike through the glacial moraine takes you to the beautiful lake of Parvati Sarover almost at the base of Om Parvat.

Om Parvat is of great religious significance to the Hindus and it is named so as the snow on the mountain resembles the OM sign, which is holy for both the Hindus and the Buddhist.

The most clear and perfect view of the Om Parvat can be seen from Nabidhang, which is very close to the famous Lipulekh La, on the Kailash Mansarover route. Lipulekh La crosses over from India to Tibet. It separates from Gunji, and can be visited on return.

Jolingkong is also the base of the Sin La pass to cross over to the Darma Valley on the other side.


Darma Valley - Pancha Chuli Base Camp Trek

Trek to the soul of the Darma Valley following the River Darma up till the base camp of the Pancha Chuli Group of peaks. Passing by the remote villages of Dhar, Bongling, Nagling, Sela, Baling, Saun, Duttu and then further up to Tidang and Bidang, this trek lets you experience almost all of the Himalayas of Kumaon.

The villages lets you experience the rich culture and way of life of the Kumaon Himalayas. Homestays further makes it better as in this trek we can live like a local and spend the night in the houses of the local villages. This not only earns them money but also gives a platform of interaction with the locals to see life through their eyes.

The 5 peaks of Pancha Chuli sees over these valley and from Saun, its a day excursion to the Pancha  Chuli Base Camp. The peak almost seems climbable from that close.
