I recently went for a trek to the Pindari glacier. The trek in itself lasted for eight days, and offered some awesome scenic views, especially towards the later half of the trek. We stayed in KMVN huts at various spots along the way. Our itinerary was as follows –
Day 1 – Drive from Bageshwar to Loharkhet. Trek 9 kms from Loharkhet to Dhakuri
Day 2 – Trek 7 kms from Dhakuri to a village called Khati
Day 3 – Trek 11 kms from Khati to Dwali
Day 4 – Trek 5 kms from Dwali to Phurkiya
Day 5 – Trek 14 kms Phurkiya to Pindari, and back to Phurkiya
Rest of the days, we just retraced our path back, with lesser number of stops and more distance covered each day. This was a fairly easy trek, as long as one does not have any knee problems. The scenery, while fairly usual in the beginning , becomes good Dwali onwards. We even spotted a bear on our way to Phurkiya!
Following are some of my captures along the way. Will be posting more soon! 🙂
