Gangotri Nandavan Tapovan Trek - Duration : 8 Days

As the source of the Ganga (Known as Bhagirathi until it reaches Devprayag ), gangotri is one of the holiest places in India. Infect, the physical source of river is 19 kms further north at Gaumukh. This 18 century temple is dedicated to Goddess ganga. It is located near a sacred stone where king Bhagirath worshipped Lord Shiva. Tapovan, have a sceneic beauty. It is the base camp for the Mt. Shivling. Mountaineers have their first base camp in Tapovan. The view of Bhagirathi's group of peaks & Shivling is magnificent. The alpine green meadow & a stream flowing down the Tapovan has also something special in it.

DAY 01 :
The day begins with a drive to Uttarkashi – which is small but busy town in the Garhwal hills on the banks of the Bhagirathi River. This place is famous for its temples, including the Vishwanath temple just to the north of the town as well as the famed Nehru Institute of Mountaineering which is placed right above the town. The drive is for 6-7 hours along which you will also pass the famed Tehri dam which holds the Bhagirathi River to form a reservoir of almost 22 Km. This dam is quite essential for the production of electricity in India. In addition, you also get to see the Bhagirathi Mountains from a distance, increasing the anticipation of seeing them up, close and personal.

Making a way out of the town, we stop on the outskirts at a Monal Guest house where we will check for the night. If we arrive early enough, you can take the rest of the day to explore around Uttarkashi.

DAY 02 :
The drive to Gangotri will take us 4 hours, which we begin immediately after breakfast. Once here, we check in into a hotel for another night. Do make sure to visit the Ganga Temple here – it one of the prime pilgrim locations for the Hindus and the temple comes with its stories to share. Just beyond this temple there us a series of concrete steps leading up to the main trail which we will be taking up to reach Bhojbasa the following day.

DAY 03 :
The day begins with an uphill walk with fairly defined Kilometer marks through dense deodar forests and then opens into a wide unfrosted valley, through which the walk is pretty much gradual till we reach an isolated pine forests at Chirbasa before finally making it to Bhojbasa. After the first 4 Km there are some dhabas for a bite to eat, where a tributary flows into the valley. Bhojbasa has a small temple there and this used be full of Birch tree but unfortunately for us it is not there anymore. Here we camp for the night after completing almost 15 Km in a period of 5-6 hours.

DAY 04 :
Continuing along the grassy hillsides, the trail then curves, to unfold a breathtaking view of meadows studded with wild flowers and crowned by the Bhagirathi group of peaks. We set the camp for you at a sandy beach at Gaumukh, where the Holy Ganga gushes out of the snout of the Gangotri glacier. The Shivling at 6450 m sits looking like an old learned man, while the Bhagirathi I, II and III tower above. The trail leaves its way through the terminal moraine before cutting across the Gangotri glacier and climbing steeply up to the grassy slopes to the vast ablation valley of Tapovan- here the Bhagirathi peaks are almost within touching distance. It is a pleasantly surprising and green meadow with bubbling streams and wild flowers and camp sites below the Shivling. Trek time : 4-5 hours covering a distance of 9 km.

DAY 05 :
This is the second day at Tapovan and is set aside especially for you to just relax and take in as much as you can of the white panoramic giants above you. If you feel adventurous enough then you can walk up to ridge to give a look at Meru glacier or instead take a full day walk to the Kirti Bamak glacier reaching till the base of peaks “Kedarnath Dome at 6850 m”, Kirti Bamak at 6500 m’ and catch a classic view of Shivling from the east.

DAY 06 :
We find our route back to Cheerbasa to spend a relaxed night here after completing 13 Km of distance in 4-5 hours. You will notice here that to the south the peak of Bhrigu Parbat (6041m) looms high above the valley as well.

DAY 07 :
We walk back to Gangotri and board our vehicles to drive to Uttarakashi. Overnight stay at an Uttrakashi Hotel- pretty mundane after the natural habitation you have just left behind.

DAY 08 :
The expedition comes to an end once we drive back to Rishikesh.

Roopkund Trek - Duration : 08 Days

Roopkund is situated at the ht. of 5029 mts, in the lop of trisul massif this is usually called the “MY STERY LAKE ” since human skeletons and the remains of horses were found here the lake, surrounded by rock strewn glaciers and snow clad peaks is magnificent and an chanting the Mystery lake of Roopkund has brought here many a besotted treveller since the discovery of human skeletons in the lake and the glaciers descending in to it tor many years the origin of the skeletons remained a mystery some thought it to be the remains of general Zorawar’s army that lost its way while returning from Tibet. But the popular belief, narrated in the folk traditians a bout the pilgrimage to nanda devi undertaken by raja pasdhawal his wife the Garhwali priness rani balampa, who perished in a hailstorm.

At turangali appears to be closer to the truth e specially since the corbom dating of the skeleton and its anthropological studies point forwards the authenticity of this fock- core

DAY 01 :
After breakfast, we drive to Kaldu Bugar which is about 5 Km after Karanprayag. On the way we first cross Devprayag, site where the Alaknanada meets the Bhagirathi to move ahead as Ganga. The road then follows the Alaknanda River up to Karanprayag. On arrival we check in to a hotel by the river and run by The Garhwal Vikas Nigam (GMVN).

DAY 02 :
At around 7am we begin our 5 hour journey drive to Loh Jung and then follow the Pindar River up to Tharali. The road conditions are good until Karnprayag, thereafter which there are often rough sections to Mandoli- but we don’t have to worry too much about these conditions as soon we start trekking down into Gyan Ganga valley. For the initial two hours, this walk will take you through rhododendron and oak forest with a steep downhill road by the side of the river after we which we climb up to Didana to set up our camps for the overnight stoppage.

DAY 03 :
Today starts with a serious uphill section through the forest. In about 3 hours you will reach the tree line from where if the weather allows you will be able to catch a spectacular view of the Chaukhamba and Nilkanth peaks. At this point we are on a grassy ridge leading to the meadows of Bedni Bugyal. This high meadow is the main area used for camping by travelers on the great pilgrimage to Roop Kund which takes place every 12 years. It is a beautiful and interesting place dotted with shrines and temples and the alpine camp here rivals the best in the Himalayas as well as the wildflowers in the meadows remain in bloom until mid September and are also magnificent during the monsoon months of July and August. In the morning there will be a tremendous view of Trishul above the Shilasamudra glacier, as well as Nilkanth to the north-west. Overnight camp after a strenuous trek of 5 - 6 hours.

DAY 04 :
We take this day for acclimatization for which we trek higher for almost 5 hours and then drop back to the camp at Badni Bugyal meadow. You will feel much more comfortable with the air once you have finished this drill and can comfortably end the day at the camp.

DAY 05 :
The 5 hour trail crosses a hump to reach Bistola and then climbs up to Bhugu Basa- an improvised stone shelter that is generally used by local pilgrims. Frankly compared to the beauty of Badni Bugyal it is hard to imagine that this coarse stone structure made as makeshift shelter points could exist in this close vicinity the lower alpine meadows. Never the less we stop here for an overnight camp.

DAY 06 :
If the weather is clear in the morning then you will be lucky enough to get a good view of the Trishul peak and the other mountains around. An arduous trek of about 3 hours gets you to Roop Kund. At Roop Kund, if the snow is not too deep, the mysterious skeletons and remains of human beings and horses can be seen, as detailed in the books of Shipman and Tilman. There are also great views of the surrounding glaciers and high peaks. The lake in itself is very scenic and peaceful and is worth following the trail which is often snow covered till early June, making route finding a problem. Even post monsoons, there are some steep, rocky sections which may require a bit of scrambling.

We hike another 30 minutes or so up to the ridge above the lake to explore the area and return back to Bhagu Basa for an overnight camp.

DAY 07 :
The route from here is different than the standard trek to allow a shorter itinerary. Our day begins with a 3-hour return trek to Badni Bugyal - a long steep descent through a fine forest of firs and rhododendrons and across a beautiful clearing. After another drop down, we reach the river which is a good place for lunch.

The latter part of the day is another 4-5 hours of walking and is spent in climbing upwards to reach the main valley, and onward to Wan village which lies at the head of this valley. We camp above the village on a wide tree lined terrace with the sacred grove of Latu just above us. Latu, again is another one of the local devta (spirit) here and his temple is built right under one of these huge Deodar trees. You will be pleasantly amused to see that the villagers at Wana have not lost their traditions and still wear the brown, home spun Garhwali wool blanket across their chest. This is just one of the many Garhwali traditions you will get to experience firsthand during this expedition.

DAY 08 :
A well built road is connected to the village Wan from the other side and we simply have to walk down for roughly 4 hours to the vehicles lined there to drive (10 hours) back to Rishikesh, which marks the end of this trek.

Kuari Pass Trek - Duration : 09 Days

The Pass (Khal) is approached through a narrow goat trek at an elevation of 4265mts. In the heart of chamoli district. The glorious view of the imposing castern peaks of the Garhwal Himalayas is unforgettably enchanting. They appears so close with their grand glittering snow caps that one feels like almost to vching them. If the weather is perfectly clear than the peaks visible from kuari pass are Nanda Devi, Dronagiri, Hathi parvat, Devathan etc. This trek is also known as cuzan trail, since lord Cuzan once trekking up to Kuari pass, on their descend to Mt. Kamet. The Kuari pass offers magnificent views of the Garhwal Himalayas.

DAY 01 :
Drive to Nandaprayag and to Ghat and then to Chefna (the starting point of the trek). We camp for the night at Chefna.

DAY 02 :
Finish with breakfast and then devour on this nice walk next to the river followed by an ascent through coniferous and mixed forests. The walk by a wooded ridge takes us to a village called Ramni (2550m). It is a typical Garhwal village with friendly people and attractive houses with heavy slate roofs and paved alleys surrounded by fertile fields. It is very commendable to see that this entire village is mainly run on solar power. Night stay and meals at camp at Ghuni.

DAY 03 :
This is a long but rewarding day. From the campsite you climb steeply for 1,000ft/300m on a zigzagging track to emerge on open, grassy, grazing meadows. Snow peaks begin to emerge above the forest to the north. The path continues up through forests of rhododendron, pines and oaks with more pastures for summer grazing with shepherds huts. Flocks of sheep and goats are there to keep you company as keep moving along the track.

The highest point, reached in 2¼ hours from the camp, at 3,064m/10,053ft, is the Ramni Pass, also called Binayak Top. From here it is possible to make out the Kauri Pass, which we will cross on Day 8. From now on there may be a chance to see the multi-coloured monal pheasant but they are very shy, being hunted by the locals for pot. The trek is now gentle, mainly through open pastures into forests of horse chestnuts and walnut trees complete with fairy tale waterfalls.

Lastly, a zigzag downward trail will bring you down to the overnight camp at Semkherk.

DAY 04 :
Day starts with a descent to the colourful village of Jhinjhi. The trail carries on down past small farms, through some woods to the spectacular suspension bridge at 1,840m/6,037ft across the Birehi Gorge, which currently is inhabited by a large number of monkeys! From here however it’s a very steep climb up to 7,382ft/2,250m, where the track eases only after arduous ascent of 1 ½ hour.

After this though you can relax a bit as the path becomes almost flat and you pass under the cool shade of the rhododendron forests with long tailed magpies flitting about. There are many streams and waterfalls as the route contours round many deep ravines. If you look down to the deep gorge below you can see the landslide and the Gauna Lake, which burst and flood the whole of the Ganga Valley down to Rishikesh in 1898. After going round the head of a horseshoe valley you reach two lovely rivers cascading down under the path. From here there is a short climb to a spot called Kaliaghat, which is a good campsite near the village of Pana. It is here where we camp overnight.

DAY 05 :
This is another long but spectacular day. The route traverses above the village and then starts a steep climb up into a rhododendron forest. It is a broad, well made track and after a number of small summits a Col is reached at 9,842ft/3,000m. The path now descends gently, traversing along the valley to open meadows with views across to the Kuari Pass. We continue downhill through the valley along several streams, before it plunges down a very steep and loose section, much of which has been washed away by the monsoons.

At the bottom, you will see that the river has cut through a deep rocky, dramatic gorge to your right showing just how naturally scalped the entire region is. From the river, it is a very steep climb of about 3,000 feet (900 m) with a small break about half the way up to cross a large stream. A final climb brings you above the tree-line to the campsite on the large pastures where sheep and goats graze in summer, with the Kauri Pass towering above. Camp overnight.

DAY 06 :
It is a short day today meaning that you have enough time to take breaks on the pass to simply stare at awe at your surroundings. The thrill of standing at such a height, with the cold wind hitting you across the face is a feeling that cannot be surpassed. We aim to cross this pass today so that you will have the benefit of the clear early morning the following day.

For this we have to walk a bit more to gain more height, with the highest point of the trail being at a cool 4000 m high and is just half an hour from the Tali Pass ahead. Once, we have had our fill of the mountain view (which is highly unlikely) we walk down to our camp which has been set up for you across a small stream.

DAY 07 :
For those among you who are willing to give up a few more hours of sleep to catch a rare glimpse of nature, we suggest you wake up before dawn and make your way to the top of Pangarchulli peak to catch the dawn view of the Himalayas. The way, the navy blue mountains slowly turn an orange hue to a brighter yellow to finally white is a sight you will not want to miss. Frank Smythe, who came this way in 1931 en route to Kamet (25,443ft/7,757m), the second highest mountain in this region, said something along these lines about this view, "We breasted the slope and halted, silent on the path. No words would express our delight.

The Himalayas were arrayed before us in a stupendous arc". Some of the mountains seen are Kamet, Nilkanth (7,141m/23,425ft), Dunagiri (7,067m/23,182ft) and Changabang (6,864m/22,516ft), with even Nanda Devi herself visible if you walk along the ridge for a while. The blinding vision of snow peaks make all the effort worthwhile, for it is often said that this is one of the greatest mountain views in the world. We walk back to camp for hot lunch and over night in tents.

DAY 08 :
Most of summer treks finish in Auli and early summer/early winter treks finish in Tapovan because of the icy conditions on the trail to Auli. It is a 3-4-hr walk to either place. It is a gradual descent to Auli down through woods and pastures and we meet our car waiting for us at Auli to drive us to Joshimat. Auli, although having none of the elegance of its sister hill resorts, does have a charm and beauty of its own. It is the site where the famous Adiguru Shankaracharya attained enlightenment before beginning his campaign for the unification of India and the revitalization of Hinduism.

There is a temple here called the Na Singh where the statue of Na Singh involves a legend that when the arm of the idol finally breaks, the road to Badrinath will be blocked. Interestingly, the statue’s arm has been getting smaller every year. Auli is also the centre of the Indian ski scene, and the cable car up to the resort of Auli starts in the middle of Joshimath.

We stay overnight at a hotel in Joshimath to wash off the fatigue and get a comfortable sleep.

DAY 09 :
Back to Rishikesh it is, with lunch given on the way.

Chandrashila Winter Summit Trek - Duration : 04 Days

DAY 01 :
Our trek begins from the town of Rishikesh. Morning, after breakfast we drive for a good 7-8 hours to reach Sari. The drive, though long is beautiful as we drive along the Ganga, Alaknanda and Mandakani rivers. Enroute we stop at Deoprayag which is another important Hindu site, known for the confluence of two distinct colored Bhagiati and Alaknanada Rivers, which then flows down as the Ganga. Once in Sari, we trek for a short while to the beautiful Himalyan Lake, Deorital. This trek does not take long but is steep, often giving a good view of the surrounding villages.

While you trek up, we carry your gear ahead of you so that you find your camps ready at the bank of the lake. You can take the day off to explore the area around and then retire to your cozy tents after a good, wholesome dinner.

DAY 02 :
The mornings in the Himalayas are one to look forward to. Wake up early to catch the first rays of the sun on the snow covered Himalyas. The orangish hue of the mountains is one to keep as memory in your cameras! Once we have fed you with an energy giving breakfast, we set forth to Chopta. This is a gradual trek and takes 5-6 hours to complete, which however pass relatively quickly as you pass through the dense, cool forests and beautiful alpine meadows dotted with wild flowers. Arrive at Chopta and camp at outskirts. Meals and Overnight stay in Tents.

DAY 03 :
Our target today is to reach the summit of Chandrashilla in time so that we can catch the panoramic view of the high Himalayan peaks in good light. The trek is mostly a gradual ascent through the maroonish-reddish dwarf rhododendron bushes. At the summit, take in a good look at the prominent peaks surrounding you from all directions. Almost every prominent peak of the Garhwal Himalayas can be spotted from here. To one side is Nanda Devi (7817Mtrs-the highest peak of Indian Himalayas), the other side is Kedarnath, Trishul, Banderpoonch etc. Each peak is a spectacular view and finds its mention in the myths and folk tales of the plains below. Explore the area and then trace your steps back to the camp at Chopta. This downward journey is far easier and we finish it in good time to camp again at Chopta.

DAY 04 :
Morning after breakfast board our waiting vehicle and drive back to Rishikesh. Tour terminates upon arrival in Rishikesh.
