Trekking in Kumaon, Uttaranchal Valley

The Garhwal is one of the frequently visited areas in the Himalayas. The two river outlets of Ganga and amuna provide the main enterance to Garhwal Himalaya, throug the towns of Haridwar, Rishikesh, Dehradun ad Mussoorie.  The Gangotri area near the source of the Bhagirathi River is the most popular destination for trakkers and mountaineers.  It is the gateway to many famous glaciers and spectacular peaks, apart from being one of the most sacred places in Garhwal. 

Two other important areas are Valley of Flowers and Badrinath, near the source of the Alaknanda River source are also much frequented.  The whole of Garhwal Himalaya is pilgrimage country, visited by thousands of travelers men ad women, yong and old, rich and poor, coming from every corner of India. It lies between the Punjab to the West and the Nepal Himalayas to the East. This is one area in the Himalayas, which has something to offer to all the mountaineers, the trekkers, the naturalist and the photographer. As Garhwal houses some of the holiest of Hindu shrines, it attracts millions of pilgrims every year from all over the Indian sub-continent.

The Garhwal Himalayas have attracted mountaineers from all over the world, to attempt and scale the mighty peaks in this region. A Garhwal trekking tour in this area, combined with visits to the holy temples of Gangotri, Kedarnath, Badrinath and Yamunotri, will add spiritual experience of the Himalayas as you watch the stream of people bathing and lining up in front of the temples to have a view of holy shrine, and to wash away, the sins of a lifetime.

Most of the trails in Kumaon are relatively easy, with gradual ascents and descents over rolling hillas and through meadows (Bugials or Kharag).  These trails offer breathtaking views of the high peaks such as Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot, Trisuli and Hardeol. Eastern Kumaon has recently been opened to foreign trekkers and the trails dominated by the Panchchuli group of peaks.

|Trek -I|  Pindari Glacier (most popular and easy trail).

Under the SE exterior rim of the Nanda Devi sanctuary, one of the most popular ad easily accessible treks in Kumaon Himalaya.  The trail passes through thick forest along the Pindar River Valley and comes close to the peaks of Nanda Khat, Nanda Kot and Nanda Bhanar.

|Trek -II|  Sunderdhunga Valley (side valley of the Pindar; easy trek).

A side valley of the Pindar.  Its wild scenic beauty surpasses that of the Pindar, coiling throgh an enchanting theatre of mounains dominated by the gignatic Maiktoli wall to the NW and by the Tharkot ridge further W. At the back f the valley is the eponymous pass (5520m), for climbers only, leading N into the Nanda Devi Sanctuary.

|Trek -III|  Milam Glacier in Garhwal / Kumaon Region).

The logest (27km) glacier in Garhwal/Kumaon and Uttar Pradesh Himalaya, fed by a number of ice tributaries from a backdrop dominated by Rishi Pahar (6992m), Hardeol (7161m), Trishul (7074m) and Nanda Gond (6315m). Normally approached from the Munsiari roadhead 2133m.

|Trek -IV|  Ram Ganga-Namik Glacier (Recently opened area - tough walk)

Ram Ganga-Namik Glacier (Recently opened area with rough and tough walks) - Situated at the head of Ram Ganga Valley, between Gauri Ganga and Pindar valleys.  This has been a restricted area, hence it has remained comparatively unknown to the trekking community.  The approach to this glacier is a delightful excursion.  Leti is the road head which can be reached from Bageshwar via Bharari and Samadhura.  Leti (2050m) is a big village where porters can be hired.

|Trek -V|  Panchchuli base camp (passes through bordering Nepal and Tibet).

Panchchuli base camp (passes through a region of outstanding beauty bordering Nepal and Tibet). - Goes up to Darma Valley near the  borders of Nepal and Tibet, an area of outstanding beauty and importance for anthropologists. The people are migratory by nature, and though living in a remote Himalayan Valley, are quite literate and far from being primitive.  The coache from Delhi to Pithoragarh Journeys 503km via Tanakpur.  Via Almora is more picturesque, through Bageshwar, Chaukori and Berinag; the same distance.

To proceed beyond Pithoragarh get an inner line permit from the District Magistrate there.  Now take a bus for Dharchula (4h 30 journey), and, after changing, to Sobala is a roadhead and take off-point for this trek, though you can travel a few km further by jeep.  Sobala to Panchchuli base camp is a pleasant walk of 28km.  As the local people keep going up and down the valley, eating shops and accommodation are available at most of the villages.

|Trek -VI|  Ralam Dhura Pass (strenuous) - 5580

Ralam Dhura Pass (strenuous) - 5580 - A passage in the Panchchuli Range between Chaudhara (6510m) and Sui Tilla (6373m), from the Lassar Yankti Valley to Gauri Ganga Valley.  From Pokhang (see above) in the Lassar Yankti, the route crosses two passes and negotiates three glaciers to reach Ralam village on the Ralam Gad, a tributary of the Gauri Ganga.  At pokhang (3430m) ascend alogside the Ralam Yangti stream steeply though thorny shrubs and scree, past Ramta Dangsu to Gunda Dangsu (4200m), 4.5km from Pokhang and on the left side of Nipchikang Glacier.
