Nandadevi Classic Trekking :  

NANDA DEVI CLASSIC TREKKING

The Kuari pass is one of the most beautiful trek, famous for the enchanting view of the snow clad peaks of Neelkanth (6596m), Kamet (7756m), Mukut Parbat, Mana, Nilgiri Parbat, Trishul (7120m), Hardeol, Dronagiri, rishi pahar, Kalanka, Chaukhamba (7128m), Lampak, Changabang (6864m) , Ronthi , Beathertoli, Kamatt (7757m) and others. On a clear day most of the time you are trekking in the company of these mountains giving you a thrilling experience of the mighty Himalaya , particularly the NANDA DEVI MASSIF. These mountains though far away appear very close. The trail was named after Lord Curzon, who was a keen trekker & it is said that the path was specially improved so that he could trek. With independence it was renamed the Nehru Trail. 

 Day 01: Rishikesh To Ghat: 9-10 hours

 Drive to Nandaprayag and to ghat. (Starting point of the trek). Night stay in guest house/camping

Day 02: Ghat To Ghuni: 3-4 hours walk

Drive to starting point and begin the trek. It is nice walk next to the river and ascent through coniferous and mixed forests. This walk followed by wooded ridge takes us to 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 has a solar-powered electricity scheme. Night stay and meals in camp at Ghuni.

DAY 03: TREK TO SEMKHERK MEADOW. (2,600m approx.)5-6 hrs.

This is a long but rewarding day. From the campsite you climb steeply for 1,000ft/300m on a good 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 oak with more pastures for summer grazing with shepherd huts. The highest point, reached in 2¼ hours from the camp, at 3,064m/10,053ft, is the Ramni Pass, also called Binayak Top. It is also 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 the pot. You then trek gently down for a while across more pastures and open glades, then into lovely forests of horse chestnuts and walnut trees with waterfalls. From here, the trek is a zigzag descent to Camping place. Camp overnight at Semkherk.

DAY 04 : TREK TO KALIAGHAT. (2700m approx.)-6 hours.

Day starts with descend to the colourful village of Jhinjhi. The trail carries on down past small farms through woods to the spectacular suspension bridge at 1,840m/6,037ft across the Birehi Gorge, currently inhabited by a large number of monkeys. From here a very steep climb takes you back to 7,382ft/2,250m, where the track eases after a one and a half-hour ascent. From here the path is almost flat passing through fine rhododendron forest with long-tailed magpies flitting about. There are many streams and waterfalls as the route contours round many deep re-entrants. Camp overnight.

DAY 05: TREK TO DHAKAUNI VIA SARTOLI (11,000ft/3353m approx.) - 7 hours.

This is another long, but spectacular day. The route traverses above the village and then starts a steep climb up into rhododendron forest, with many zigzags - it is a broad, well made track but after quite a number of false 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. The track then traverses down around the side of the valley, across several streams, before it plunges down a very steep and loose section, much of which has been washed away by the monsoons - an awkward and loose descent.

DAY 06: TREK ACROSS KAURI PASS(12,000ft/3,658m) TO TALI (11,155ft/3,400m). 5 hours.

 It is a long because of the break on the pass for views and spectacular day. You aim to cross the pass so that you will have the benefit of the clear early morning views the following day. The climb up to the pass is made on a zigzag track to the top. You make a traverse along the high ridge past a shrine to Shiva before dropping down to your camp at Khulara which is the name given to a clearing amongst the Rhododendrons about half an hour and 500ft/150m below Shiva's shrine to await the spectacular views of the morning.To go to Tali we take left trail from Shiva shrine instead of right which leads down to Khulara.  Camp overnight.

DAY 07: TREK TO AULI/TAPOVAN. (6,562ft/2,000m/), DRIVE TO JOSHIMATH.

 A long way below lies Tapovan or Auli (Auli is in little different direction. Most of summer treks finish in Auli and early summer and early winter treks finish in Tapovan because of the icy condition on the trail to Auli) and the road head. Anyway a 3-4-hr walk to either place. A very steep descent to the Tapovan though it is gradual to Auli, down through woods and pastures. At Tapovan or Auli our car will be waiting for the drive to Joshimath which, 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. The arm gets smaller every year! It is the centre of the Indian ski scene, and the cable car up to the resort of Auli starts in the middle of Joshimath. Overnight in the High Bank Himalayan View in the Himalayas..our own guest house located at the elevation of 2400 meter. Also can do massage etc..at our Cottage at High Bank Himalayan View.
