Uttarakhand Trekking

Nanda Devi

Itinerary

The Nanda Devi National Park has been closed since 1982 to protect its bio-diversity and only now parts of the park have been open to the interested tourist. None less than Sir Edmund Hilary has described the sanctuary in glowing terms as “the training ground for adventure in India “.
No description of this trek would do justice to the scenery that unfolds in front of your eyes. The snow-clad peaks like Mount Bithartoli-Himal (6354 m), Nanda Ghunti (6309 m), Ranthi Peak (6003 m), Dronagiri (7066 m) and of course India’s highest peak Nanda Devi (7817 m) herself in Majesty. The trek also offers great views of the Auli bugyals, Urgam valley, and Lata village and moving through forests of Rhododendron, Birch, and Fir.
