This classic trek takes us across the picturesque meadows and valleys that border the western edge of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. The route we follow was used by Shipton and Tilman on their amazing journey to the Nanda Devi basin.


Region : Garhwal Himalayas

Grade : Strenuous

Altitude : 4500 m above Sea Level

Attraction : Nanda Devi Peak

During the trek there are many views of the surrounding peaks and the Kuari Pass (3658m) itself has an unrivalled panorama of the Great Himalayan peaks including Nanda Devi (7816m), Changabang (6864m), Dunagiri (7066m) and Kamet (7756m). This trek takes one on a remote trail, a trade route between India & Tibet which existed more than a century ago. Stunning views of some of Himalayan peaks like Hardeol (7151m), Rishi Pahar (6992m), Trisuli (7074m) and many more from Milam glacier. A meadow campsite at the Nanda Devi Base camp with unparalleled views of high mountains all around adds to the experience. First stage of the trek takes you through some remote villages in Milam, the last major settlement before the Tibet border. From here we set out on an excursion to the close by Milam glacier to have an up close & personal experience of being with Himalayan peaks like Hardeol, Rishi Pahar, Tirsuli and many more. This amazing feat of endurance and determination was capped when Tilman later returned to conquer the peak itself. Sadly, the mystic of the area led to an excess of expeditions and ecological damage and the Sanctuary was closed in the 1980's. Investigations are currently underway to assess the recovery. Understandably, the country that surrounds the Sanctuary now has its own attractions for walkers and pilgrims alike. The immediate landscape has been beautifully tamed by centuries of low-key habitation and cultivation but the constant backdrop of the mighty Himalayan peaks makes for a magnificence unrivalled elsewhere in the region.
