Kinnaur Kailash Circuit
Trek Highlights

This wonderful trek in Kinnaur circuits the revered Kinnaur Kailash mountain. Kinnaur was forbidden to trekkers till a few years ago. Consequently these trails have been seldom used or explored since they were discovered over two centuries ago.

The Kinnaur Kailash Range borders the Disctrict of Kinnaur in the south and is dominated by the Kinnaur Kailash (6349 Mts) and Jonkarden (6473 Mts) peaks. The only pass on this trek is the Charang La at an awesome altitude of 5300 Mts above sea level .The trek is challenging and also rewarding for experienced trekkers.
