Kinner Kailash Trek is a religious and spiritual trek in Himachal Pradesh’s Kinnaur area. Reckong Peo is the closest town and headquarters of district Kinnaur. The views from the Kinnaur Kailash Trek are spectacular. It is one of India’s most difficult pilgrimages.

Kinner Kailash Trek is a 79-foot vertical rock perched at a height of over 15,000 feet in the center of Lord Shiva’s most fabled abodes. Shivaling’s color varies throughout the day. According to legend, Lord Shiva used to hold meetings with the Gods and Goddesses at Kinner Kailash. Kinner Kailash is also thought to be Lord Shiva’s winter residence.

Mt. Kinner-Kailash (19,850 ft) and Mt. Jorkanden (19,850 ft) are also part of the Kinnaur Kailash range (21,237 ft).

The Kinner Kailash Trek begins in Tangling, a lovely village on the left bank of the Satluj River. It takes six days to finish. In the direction of Ganesh Park, the terrain is quite steep. According to Hindu mythology, this is where Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati first met. You will reach Gufa after crossing Ganesh Park, and then Parvati Kund, which is located immediately below the Kinnaur Kailash.

Wildflowers and Brahma Kamal can be found along the trail. Keep an eye out for stones, rocky terrain, and steep routes. The steep walk from Parvati Kund leads to the top, where you will find yourself in front of the gigantic Kinner Kailash Shivalingam.

After a long travel, your mental fatigue will dissipate as you gaze up at the stunning 79-foot vertical Shivalingam. From this vantage point, you can see Mt. Kinner Kailash (19,849ft), which is a jaw-dropper.

Kinner Kailash Trek is rated as a moderate-to-advanced difficulty trek. The hike ascends to a height of 15,700 feet. There is a significant altitude climb, from Tangling to Kinner Kailash (15,700ft), which necessitates the use of very strong lungs.

The Kinner Kailash trek necessitates a high level of cardiovascular endurance, and you may be wondering how to strengthen your lungs. To begin, go for a jog every day. Begin jogging slowly and gradually increase your speed. As a result, cardiovascular endurance exercises are highly vital for making your lungs stronger than before.

The Workouts

  • Walking with a 10kg rucksack strapped on your back is a terrific way to shape your legs and body. It aids in the burning of calories, the reduction of excess weight, and the strengthening of your body.
  • For high ascents, stair climbing is the finest workout. Include it in your training routine.
  • Jogging can help you live longer by strengthening your lungs and improving your life. It’s a high-intensity aerobic activity that necessitates a lot of oxygen. This is an excellent activity for protecting weight and maintaining good health.
  • Squats are the most effective functional exercise for improving balance. Legs, thighs, hips, and hamstrings are also strengthened.
  • Pull-ups, push-ups, sprints, mountain climber, burpee, jumping jacks, and 60-second plank (3-5 sets each).
  • Pushing your body upstairs after stair climbing is another fantastic cardiovascular exercise. This is often considered to be the most effective workout for improving strength and power. Carrying an 18kg pack also helps a lot.
  • Finally, remember to pamper your body with some breathing exercises, Yoga, and Meditation.
  • For the best outcome, eat well, stay hydrated, and get enough rest.

Remember to bring appropriate clothing, remain hydrated, and stay warm to properly acclimate.
