Book This Tour

As one treks along the route surrounded by the majestic Himalayas, every inch becomes a fresh song of nature and at every curve the eyes embrace a new landscape more beautiful than before. Reaching the upper levels, the trees fall off, the pines cease and the road enters an enchanted garden of fern, wild flowers ands rhododendron.

The glacier over 3.2 kilometers in length and 1.5 km. broad, backed by mighty mountains, loom-up on the traveler with a gorgon gaze, leaving an indelible impression of grandeur. Situated on the Nanda Devi and Nanda Kote peaks, it extends from 3657 M to above sea level, on an open, undulating piece of ground. To the east is a lofty moraine constituted of gravel, mud and blocks of snow embedded in ice. It owed its existence to vast quantities above, which melted by the noon day sun, is frozen at night.

A ground past, over the glacier, at a height of 5393 meters leads to the Trail Pass. A trip to the Pindari Glacier is well within the capacity of any trekker, amply rewarded by magnificence of the majestic grandeur of the Himalayas, the beauty of mountain flora and fauna, the snowy ranges, gurgling hill torrents and roaring water-falls and the rays of the morning sun splitting into manifold spectral hues, making visible every drop of dew on every blade of grass while in the distance, over the mountains, come the plaintive notes of a shepherds flute. The incredible wealth of colour and beauty never ceases to amaze, as with every curve of a meandering rivulet, and every corner rounded is present a new spectacle.
