Hi All,

I am planning to visit Kinner Kailash during Sept 2nd week.
I'd like to visit shivling at KK summit and also do parikrama. Here's my tentative itinerary.

Sept 10th - Reach Delhi, leave for Reckong Peo
Sept 11th - Reach Reckong Peo by evening and make arrangements for trek.
Sept 12th - Trek to summit starts, reach the cave mid-way
Sept 13th - Reach summit and trek back down same day.
Sept 14th - Rest + Backup day
Sept 15th - Reach Lambar
Sept 16+17+18 - Do parikrama via Lambar, Charang, Lalanti, Chitkul. Try to reach Peo.
Sept 19 - Rest + Backup Day
Sept 20 - Reach Delhi

Please advice on the trip as well as provide some additional information regarding guides, weather, precautions, facilities on the way, things to carry etc. Please do share your experiences too if you had been to KK before.

Thanks

I visited the KK peak but could not get enough time to finish the parikrama.
It took three days to and fro.

What about the arrangements for the trek to peak?
How did you manage food and accommodation?
Is a guide required?

Yes, guide is required as the path is not very clear after certain distance.
Food and sleeping material (mat, sleeping bag etc) has to be carried but no need of tents as you can stay in the cave on the way. The cave is somewhat dirty and if there's no rain you can tent outside if you are carrying tents. We did not carry any tent and we had one guide and one porter with us. It was raining heavily with strong chilly winds. Make sure you carry rain jackets etc.
Guide should be able to tell you what all are needed.
The market in Reckong will have all cooking material (stove, grains etc) so no need to carry all the way till there.
It's considered tough trek and weather can get ugly higher up.
The season is over this year so try next year around Aug/Sept.
Parikrama is relatively easier and enjoyable except at few passes.

Thank you for the valuable information. I have a couple of questions more.

Is it easy to get a guide from Recong Peo? If yes how?
Does the trek start from Recong Peo itself or do we need to go to some place before starting the trek?
Are there a lot of people during the season that are going to the peak?

Yes, you can get a guide from Reckong Peo. If you need our guide's contact, I can dig it up but you still have lot of time to go. If you have time and energy after summit trek do not miss the parikrama and complete it.
The summit trek starts a few kms from Reckong Peo at a place called Powari. You need to cross the river and the trek starts.
You'll be lucky to find people on the trek. But there's a festival called Phulej that happens once a year (around Aug) where locals go and collect the flowers in that region and also visit the summit. If you go at that time, you'll have lot of company and trek can get easier. Other times, you are almost all alone.
Let me know if you need any further info. Let me remind you again that it's not possible to go in Nov/Dec and the best time would be Aug/Sept.

Yes surely its going to be next year now. I was interested at this moment because I had planned to do this trek a couple of years back and I even did reach Reckong Peo. After reaching there I found a lot of contradicting information and for lack of a credible source I decided to cancel that trek. Instead, I went to Sangla and Chhitkul.

@ amit - trek will start from Reckong Peo or Kalpa - latter has better stay options. Suggest you call Shyamal Debnath of Aucktong hotel in Kalpa and ask if he can arrange. Hotel has a site, so try contacting using that. On the phone if you talk to some random operator the quote will be high.

I called Shyamal Debnath today. quite strangely, he told me that in June and after janmastmi, permission is not given by the authorities for this trek.. which sounded but strange me. I know many people who have done this trek in September...
it's a deja vu moment for me as exactly same thing had happened to me for manimahesh kailash. trek...
