Panwali Kantha, Uttarakhand has many beautiful bygyals/meadows along its trekking route. The pretty and peaceful Panwali kantha bugyals lie at far flung heights, ranging from 2745 mtr to 3970 mtr on the old pilgrim trail from Gangotri to Sri Kedarnath. They are open grasslands and undulating slopes studded with patches of forests. With the advent of summer, the snows melt and the flowers and herbs blossom forth to carpet the Panwali kantha bugyal with a riot of colours. From lush green meadows after the monsoons to snow covered bugyals with inviting gentle slopes in winters

Panwali kantha is located between the Gangotri and Sri Kedarnath axis. Hence it can easily be reached from both Gangotri side and Sri Kedarnath side. From Gangotri side the trek starts from Mala, 2 km from Bhatwari and from Sri Kedarnath side it starts from Triyuginarain.
