Tour Details

The Himalayan Glaciers are like a history book recording the events of hundreds of years in their endless bellies. They roar and grumble occasionally to instill fear into humans that dare venture into their territory but if you persist they may reveal fleetingly the interesting story of the snow capped giants. This trek to offers one opportunity to come face to face with the fearsome Pindari Glacier nestled on the edge of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. Lush meadows, spirited rivers and aloof mountains – this trek is a cocktail of the best of Himalayan experiences!
