The Kinnaur Kailasha (also known as Kinner Kailash) is a peak in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh’s Kinnaur district. Kinnaur Kailash stands 17200 feet tall and is revered by both Hindu and Buddhist Kinnauris. Kinnaur’s splendor stems from three of the world’s great mountain ranges: the Zanskar, the Greater Himalaya, and the Dhauladhar, all of which are visible on this walk.
The big parikrama begins in Kalpa and returns via Triung Valley to Kalpa. The Sutlej River, which runs through the Kinnaur valley from the southern slopes of Kailash Parvat in Tibet, adds to the trek’s charms. Every trek aficionado has this trek on their bucket list.
