Om Parvat is a mountain in the Himalayan mountain range, lying in the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand, India. It is situated along the Kailash-Manassarovar route, about 18 km from Gunji, towards Lipulekh Pass on the China (Tibet) border.

It is famous for the snow deposition pattern on the cliff, which gives the impression of the Hindu sacred letter 'AUM' (ॐ).

Om Parvat is very often mistaken for Adi Kailash mountain, which is a distinct peak situated in the Kutti valey, 17-19 km from the Kutti village.
