One of the most challenging treks in the Indian Himalayan region, the Kinner Kailash Parikrama trek takes you into a deep wilderness of the Kinnaur region in Himachal Pradesh. The most scenic and remotest regions of Himachal, located close to the Indo-Tibetan border, Kinnaur is home to the sacred Mt. Kinner Kailash. The Sutlej River rising from the slopes of Kailash Parvat near Mansarovar Lake in Tibet, flows through the Kinnaur valley adding to its serene and picturesque charm. Owing to the valley’s close proximity to Tibet, you will find a unique blend of Hinduism and Buddhism cultures; the pagoda style architecture and monasteries are quite common in the area. Needless to say, being a sensitive border area, foreign nationals are required to take prior permits from tourism authorities.
