Whenever we come across this abode of snow, smiling coyly at us, series of romantic movie sequences screenplays in slow motion in front our eyes. Himalayas has always been a part of our life, mysteriously though, through these beautiful depictions. But with so many trekking expeditions on the loop, it has become easier to scale the innumerable peaks of Himalayan Ranges. One such trek that takes us through a legendary trail up on one of the Himalayan Peaks is the Pangarchulla in Uttarakhand.

Trekking in Uttarakhand could never have been this better with one more added to its list. Pangarchulla Peak Trek can be summed up to a larger than life theatre play unfolding different emotions all at the same time. You will witness love for the snow peaks, awe for the dramatic and changing views of the trails, adrenalin rush when you river raft and of course pride when you reach the summit. Pangarchulla is a gorgeous peak near to the Kauri Pass which is perched more or less at the height of 14,700 ft. The snow peaks ascending can be best enjoyed during the summer months between late April and early June.

There are many trekking peaks in Uttarakhand but Pangarchulla has a charm that many of the former ones fail to display. To start with, you may not come across many treks with a well-rounded trail. The trek takes us through the Garhwal Himalayan region where the meandering path begins with breath-taking green streaked valleys to snowy peaks as we go higher on the trail. There are plenty of adventurous opportunities flooded in the journey; apart from the stimulating summit, you may also want to try White Water River rafting at Rishikesh. Rishikesh is the most popular stopover for river rafting in India and Pangarchulla Trek gives us the perfect chance to be little groovy on the river. However, the trekking expedition during the spring season will let you to witness some amazing transformation in the landscapes. The lower trails during this period are adorned with vibrant colours when the Rhododendrons are in full bloom.



The Trek

The trek is a 6 day expedition with little challenges posing here and there. We start at Haridwar, a well-known pilgrimage spot in India. The trekking on foot actually starts on the second day. Beginning from Haridwar we will be covering approx. 250 kms by road to reach Joshimath. In between the locales that we cover are Rishikesh, Devaprayag, Rudraprayag and Kanrnprayag. These pilgrim centres are the confluences of quite a few holy rivers.

We drive 12 kms from Joshimath to our starting point of walking trajectory. The second day covers 5 kms of route and takes around 4 – 5 hours to complete the first lap. We will be covering few quaint villages on the way to the Gulling Top Camp site which is at the elevation of 9600 ft. Dronagiri, Hathi, Parvat and Gori Parvat are few peaks we will be greeting on day 2.

The third day will be little tiring as the trail is much steeper to hike than the previous day’s gradual ascent followed by hilly terrains. We will be passing through oak, rhododendron and walnut forests on way up to the Khulara camp site situated at 11, 122 ft. The third day covers 6 kms of walking trail that will take around 5-6 hours of journey. Along with the previous day’s peaks glimpses, you will also be spotting the famous Nanda Devi peak and Kalanka and Chang Bang.

This is the day we have all been waiting for, The Pangarchulla Summit day. Without going into details and to sum up, we will be covering 12 kms of continuous trek where the challenges will be to face steep sleek terrain ascent followed by meandering through villages and forests. The highest altitude is reached on 4th day scaling up to 14, 700 ft. We return back to Khulara on the same day.

Day 5th and 6th will be journey back to Haridwar following the same trail – Khulara to Dhak Village to Joshimath, and then a drive to back to Haridwar.



Know More

First of all, snow treks can be a challenge. Not huge though, but big enough for you to consider a little bit of strength endurance practices before running for the Pangarchulla Summit. Book well in advance so that you would be briefed about your trip Itinerary and you can prepare yourself ahead of time. Make sure your travelling gadgets and equipment are taken care of and in good shapes. Even though there will be medical help available during the trek, it is advisable to carry any specific medication recommended by your doctor.

As we all are aware of one of the disadvantages of a high altitude trek, decreased level of oxygen which may or may not cause AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Hence, it is recommended to follow the guidelines given out and exercise a fully-fledged acclimatization practice so as to avoid any kind of risks associated to thinning of air. However, there is nothing to worry about as proficient mountaineers will be part of the trek as guides to help you in any possible way.

Don’t forget to carry cameras because you may be stunned to see few amazing visions which may not come back in any part of your life. Also, if you are a photography maniac, then Pangarchulla Peak trek may turn out to be the perfect model backdrop for you to take advantage on. Glorious sun rays peeking through the rhododendrons forests, the supple texture of the river water or the mighty mountains towering above us are worth capturing for a lifetime. Also, if you are lucky enough, you may encounter with few wild species of birds during the spring season.

The journey of Joshimath to Dhak village is quite pictorial with astounding views of gigantic peaks like Dronagiri on the left. From the Dhak village, it’s a trekking tour for another 5kms. So leaving the Himalayan villages on the left, the trek begins through a dusty trail. About 1.5km through the trail it is the Karachi village on the left side. The trail is consistent having gradual ascents and is devoid of any major difficulties in midst. From Karachi village the trail has a moderate inclination and it moves along gushing streams meandering along the ridges, mostly managed by the villagers. The lush green step farms on the hilly region are also a heart filling site which can be viewed on the way up. After hiking a little more the trekkers can reach the Tugashi village based at an altitude of 8040feet. Till now it’s approximately 3kms of trek covered. The trekkers can take a small break here and enjoy the vision of a beautiful mountain village where lifestyle is completely different from any other location. The way they manage their lives, store their produces, built their own wooden houses to protect from extreme weather and also how they maintain their herds is a matter of great appreciation. From Tugashi village the trail takes further inclination towards Gulling Village based at an elevation of 8990 feet. This is another 2kms trek but here the scenic view changes a lot in compared to the early trail. The rocky terrain from here leaves way to a greener trail. The forested area kicks in whereas the trace of civilization reduces with each passing step. It’s a steady incline with gushing streams running along all through. After reaching the Gulling Village the trekking route continues up for a mere 0.5km at an elevation of 9600 feet to the Gulling top camp site. The whole trail is quite beautiful with mesmerizing sights of prominent peaks like Dronagri, Hathi Parvat, and Gori Parvat.

The distance from Gulling top to Khulara is 6kms. After having breakfast, at the Gulling Top campsite, set out for the next trekking trail which is comparatively difficult from the ones covered. The trail to Khulara comprises of steep ascents and sharp curves meandering through rough terrains. In other words from here the serious hiking commences with scissor bends, amidst jungles of dense oak plantation. The scenic vista on the way is never compromised as through the difficult trails the trekkers can view the beautiful Himalayan peaks namely, the gigantic Nanda Devi, the mesmerizing Kalanka, the elegant Chang bang, the charming Dronagri,and not to forget the fascinating Hathi Parvat, and Gori Parvat. Apart from the sight of the prominent peaks one can also bask in the beauty of dense oak and walnut forest beautified with stretches of thick bloom of rhododendron flowers mainly in pink and red colors. Providing a striking contrast to the dense forest it is an alluring scenario. Enjoying the scenery all through move forward towards the destination for the day but keep sharp eye on the roads as a sudden hike or sharp turn is quite common in the trail. Moving closer to Khulara one can also experience a rich growth spruce and silver Birch trees grown abundantly covering the area. In winters the trail are covered by snow making it more adventurous and thrilling navigating through the snow treks . Once the open space for the campsite of Khulara is reached, it’s a stop for the day. Tents are placed in the beautiful location with the pictorial background of rich forest and distant peaks.

Day 04: Khulara to Pangarchula Peak Summit and back to Khulara

The fourth day of the tour begins by enjoying the beautiful sunrise in the forest region of the Himalayas. The destination for the day is the Pangarchulla Summit and then it’s a return back to Khulara covering a distance of almost 12kms trekking. The Pangarchulla peak is based at an altitude of 14,700 feet. The trekking trail for the day is the most challenging one of the whole trip and it may need more time than expected especially for the first time trekkers. The initial part of the trail is a gradual ascend with some occasional sharp bends but as the journey progresses the trekking track becomes more strenuous and laborious. Since it is the longest trekking day of the tour taking an approximate time of 10 to 11 hours to complete the whole stretch, one must leave early from the Khulara camp. The preferred time for leaving the camp is 4am in the morning, as the most awe striking view in the mountains is the sunrise and getting through all the labor, nobody wants to miss the splendor. As the journey begins, initially, the trail comprises of dense oak forest but soon the track changes its course through the meadows providing a greener view. However in the winters the scenic view is quite different, the area being covered by picturesque pristine snow laden trails that looks absolutely alluring. It is the reason why among various places for trekking in Uttarakhand , Pangarchulla snow treks are so popular and one of the most sought after tour in the Himalayas. Apart from the charming views of the location, the trekkers can also spot some of the prominent Himalayas peaks like Nanda Ghunti, Trishul, Nanda Devi, Kalanka, Chang bang, Dronagri, Hathi Parvat, Gori Parvat, Mana, Kamet, Abl Gamin, Neelkanth, Chaukhamba massifs and many more. Once reaching the top, get the chance to access the most breathtaking 360 degree views of the massive Himalayas, the snow peaks and its abundant beauty. The panorama is beyond words and it assures a lifetime view which remains cherished by all trekkers. Especially after all the hard work, it’s a treat to the eyes. Capturing some of the astonishing views in the camera and spending some heart filled time at the peak its time for moving back to the Khulara campsite. The expected time to be back is 10:30 am however being back before lunch time is fine. The trail back to the camp is a known trail so descending the peak would be much easier and less strenuous. Being back , have lunch at the tent and enjoy the rest of the day for leisure.


Day 05: Khulara - Dhak village - Joshimath

The next day trip starts from Khulara camp and the destination for the day is to reach Joshimath by late afternoon or evening. The descend would be to an altitude of 6724feet from 11,122 feet so a sharp change of ambience and breathing air can be felt specially for the inexperienced trekkers. The whole distance again is divided into two, where the first 11 kms is descended through trekking while the next 12kms is a drive back to Joshimath from Dhak village. The steep descend takes about 7 hours or more considering the speed of the trekkers. The initial descend is a little difficult and may consume more time but after Gulling the road is quite good and gradual making it easy to cover the distance at a faster pace. While descending, take a peek through the various villages it cover and enjoy gaining more knowledge about the life of the natives based here. Take a break around noon time close to any of these villages and have lunch in the area. Have some good snaps of the people here to carry as memory of the beautiful location. On reaching Dhak village, get boarded in the car for a straight drive to Joshimath which takes not more that 45 minutes. On reaching get refreshed at the guest house and take the evening off for leisure. However for the enthusiast there is always an option to explore the beautiful Joshimath, the local markets of the area and if interested purchase some local goods as a souvenir of the beautiful for own use or for friends and family. Conclude the day by having dinner and overnight sleep at the guest house.


Day 06: Joshimath to Haridwar

The last of the tour is scheduled for a drive back to Haridwar which is again 256kms and a drive of almost 10-11 hours. After having breakfast in the morning, pack the bags and set out for the long drive. The way back to Haridwar is done through the same road followed initially so one can get a chance to enjoy the view of all those holy destinations and also get a closer view of the mighty rivers of the country and enjoy the gushing of water streams all along the course. Since all the places covered on the way back are some of the pious destinations of the country, the trekkers can take a short stop at any one of the places and explore the area. However this can only be done, if there is sufficient time in hand and if the initial departure from Joshimath is done early. The expected time to reach Haridwar is 6pm to 7pm, though it extensively depends on the road traffic. For all those trekkers who wish to spend a day or two in Rishikesh can off board at the spot for continuing their holidays.

Risk & Respond

High Altitude Treks: Risk and Response A high altitude trek calls for an adventurous attitude, but embarking on an adventurous trip without calculating the risks is utter stupidity. That’s why we have listed a few risks and the response planned by TTH to minimise or address the risks in the best possible way.


Risk: Altitude Before you start the trek, it is important to understand the implications of high altitude on your body. Be aware of symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mild headache, nausea and general discomfort.

Response: If you feel any of these symptoms, inform the trek leader on priority and follow his instructions. Every campsite has as stretcher, fully equipped first aid kit, oxygen cylinders to address the situation.


Risk: Weather Weather is unpredictable in the Himalayas. Though we are always observant about the changing weather, no one can guarantee a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do understand that your security is of utmost importance to us and we will not proceed any further from the campsite if the weather is not favourable.

Response: The decision of the Trek Leaders and Guides to proceed or wait for the weather to get better will be final.


Risk: Injuries Often, while trekking over difficult terrains, you might have minor injuries like leg sprain, bruises etc. Serious injuries like fractures or major cuts are very rare.

Response: All our Trek Leaders are Certified Wilderness First Aid responders. They are trained to handle emergencies and can tackle minor injuries with a well-equipped first aid kit. In case of serious injuries, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the nearest road-head and is led to nearest medical centre.


Risk: Lack of communication devices In the remote areas of the Himalayas, mobile networks do not reach. On a trek, one is cut off from the world of calls, SMSs or watsapps.

Response: We rely on walkie-talkies and runners to communicate between the campsites and the base camps.

Absolutely outstanding organisation and co ordination. The trek leader & his support staff worked beautifully to ensure every member felt not only safe but also special who would have thought we would have cake cutting and balloons at over 15000feet. Vicky is the Boss. Mahavir deserves special mention for his support.
