Uttrakhand - Land of rivers and himalayas

Kumaon region of Uttrakhand, bestowed with natural beauty in abundance, has always been an eye candy for trekkers from all around the globe. For many years, the area has been providing best baits in the form of retreats to adventure junkies to which no trekker on this earth can say no. The trek to Pindari Glacier is one such trekking trail that will take you through the spectacular landscapes, snow clad glaciers, and far-flung villages of the Kumaon region, which you might have only seen in the fairy tales and will remain etched in the mind for life!

The best part of the trekking trail of Pindari Glacier is that it doesn’t test your endurance at every level, it’s smooth most of the times. But, don’t consider it as a cake walk as the degree difficulty sometimes increases so much that it pushes trekkers to put off their comfort zone. The trail becomes challenging and requires crossing mountain ridges, spider-walls, and streams. However, the unearthly beauty of the final point or Zero Point shall make you forget all the hardships.

One of the major highlight on this trek is the spectacular sight of the Nanda Devi and Nanda Kot peaks. The Kafni Glacier trek that splits from Dwali is another attraction to several trekkers. The Pindari Glacier trek can be easily accessed during the summer and autumn seasons and one can capture the incredible spectrum of nature.
