  • Trip introduction

    This is a moderately demanding trek, that's perfect for fit trekking newbies, or veterans looking for a quick break. The trail boasts views of undulating grassy meadows, wild alpine flowers, snow-capped mountain peaks and glaciers. We also visit the high altitude Jaundhar Bamak glacier and get a chance to meet the locals and appreciate the local architecture and way of life.

    If you love going behind the scenes and getting to know a place, backpacking is definitely for you! Backpacking demands good fitness levels and a willingness to rough it out in the spirit of adventure. We all carry our own loads, set up campsites, cook food and learn how to survive in the wilderness. This trip will reward you with new skills and the memories of a lifetime.

    Destination

    Running through the Govind Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park in the Garhwal Himalayas, this trail is a nature lover's delight with mixed forests, green meadows, and views of the mighty snow-covered Himalayan peaks. The highlight of the trek is the Jaundhar glacier, at a height of 14000 feet, from where we can get fairly close to the base of the Swargarohini peaks towering above.

    Acclimatisation and High Altitude Sickness: This is one of the most important aspects of travelling in the high Himalayas and cannot be ignored or set aside. Acclimatisation basically means our body adjusting to lower levels of oxygen (rarefied air) and reduced air pressure as me move up. In case one does not acclimatise properly there are chances of the person facing extreme discomfort and this can be fatal in extreme cases. While there is no set route to getting properly acclimatised there are a general precautions and steps that one can take to initiate good acclimatisation. Our trekking guides will assist you with these steps. 

    The most important thing is to select the right trek keeping in mind your experience or inexperience, health, objectives and ability.
