Western Himalayan Treks-Nandadevi Alpine Trek
Nanda Devi Pilgrimage : Situated in the eastern provinces of Garhwal and Kumaon, Nanda Devi "goddess of joy" in Hindu mythology, is the highest (at 7818m), and the most sacred of all the peaks in the Indian Himalaya. The valley of the Gauri Ganga divides the peaks of Nanda Devi and Panch Chuli, which are two most impressive mountain groups, in the entire Indian Himalaya. This enchanting area and, in particular this deep valley, which formerly provided an important trade route between India and Tibet, has traditionally been off-limits to foreign travellers. However, with very strict "Inner Line" Restricted area regulation now somewhat relaxed, the pristine Gauri Ganga Valley is now accessible and we provide a fascinating itinerary in this mountain stronghold.
Day 01 :- Arrive in Delhi and Transfer to the Hotel.
Day 02 :- We prepare for an early start for the journey to north across the fertile Indian plains toward the foothills for the Himalayas, reaching our overnight halt at Almora. Almora is a busy market town with an attractive bazaar and sits astride a commanding ridge. O/N - Hotel
Day 03 : Drive towards to Munsiyari. We drive through forested hills and mile after mile of terraced rice field. Enroute, there are brilliant views of Nanda Devi, Panch Chuli, Nanda Kot and the western Nepal peaks of Saipal and Api. This is the last sizeable settlement that we will pass before our trek. O/N -Guest house.
Day 04 : An early wake up for the sunrise on the 5 peaks of Panch Chulli, which overlook Munsairi. After a relaxed breakfast on the terrace, we have an hour to catch up our diaries while the trek crew and leaders sort out the porter and pony loads. Two hours easy walking mostly down hill take us to the starting point of the paved trail, which leads up the Gauri Ganga Valley.
Day 05 : The day starts with a steep climb as the normal road was washed away in 1995 landslide, we cross over the la and drop down to Radgari for lunch. After lunch we continue ascending along the gorge for another couple of hours to Bogdai.
Day 06 : We have a good steady climb for most of the morning. After the first hour we reach a beautiful opening of the gorge and a small trailside shrine of a local deity standing under an enormous cliff wall. After having lunch at Mapang we climb a bit more and will start noticing the continual widening of the valley and drier, less vegetated slopes around us. We pass a number of lovely waterfalls to reach our campsite at Rilkot.
Day 07 : Upon leaving Rilkote, we climb steeply for about 30 minutes to a deserted dwelling perched out on the cliff walls. An undulating walk to Burfu bridge where we have lunch and take left towards the more barren and rainless zone of the Gauri Ganga valley to our campsite at Ganghar village camp.
Day 08 : The narrow trail climbs steadily through small stands of Rhododendron, juniper and birch forest. The valley opens up to the beautiful lush alpine meadows at the terminal moraine of the glacier leading from Nanda Devi's East. This make a lovely campsite.
Day 09 : Full day resting or for exploration above the stunning campsite.
Day 10 : Our horses and pony men, who will probably have descended to Ghanghar whilst we have been camped at the base of Nanda Devi, will rejoin us as we make early start on our journey, retracing our trail back to Ganghar and Burphu.
