Om Parvat is one of the most popular mountains of the great Himalayan range. It is known by various names such as Adi Kailash, Little Kailash, Baba Kailash, Chhota Kailash etc.
Situated at an elevation of 6191 metres, Om Parvat lies in the Darchula district of Western Nepal, and Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand, India. In many ways, it greatly resembles Mount Kailash in Nepal. The way there is the sacred lake Mansarovar near Mount Kailash, near Om Parvat lie Parvati lake and JongLingKong lake. Just as the Mansarovar lake, the JongLingKong lake is also considered to be sacred.
The mountain itself holds a great religious importance for Hindus. The snow disposition against the stony background of the mountain forms an impression of ‘Aum’ which is a highly secred chant in the Hindu religion. During the month of August-September, this impression of ‘Aum’ can be seen very clearly.
Om Parvat is situated on the Indo-Nepalese border, where the ‘Aum’ faces India, and the backside faces Nepal.
The Darchula district has good facilities for lodging. There are many good hotels like Ojaswi Resort, Milan Inn, Bilju Inn, KMVN Tourist Rest house etc. can be considered for those who want to stay by the side of this wonder of nature. In Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand too, there are places to stay, like Birthi and Gasgolihat KMVN Tourist Rest Houses, Pine Resort, Panorama Hotel, Baakhlee Hotel etc.
People who visit the great Himalayan range with a religious view, should not miss a visit to Om Parvat.
