Detailed Itinerary

Day 01 : Chitkul to Dumti, 7 hours trek 9 km

A vehicle can drop the group from Chitkul to ahead of Rani Kanda. The trek from there is of about 8 to 9 km. The trails pass through flower filled meadows with waterfalls. We may have to cross several brooks.

Day 02 : Dumti to Gundar (4,400 m), 5-6 hours trek 15 km

We follow the Baspa river on its true right bank. An early start is recommended to avoid turbulence in the stream. Gundar is a grazing meadow and we camp here.

Day 03 : Gundar (4,400 m) to Lamkhaga Pass Base Camp in Kinnaur (4,800 m), 6-7 hours trek

On this day, the trail becomes devoid of vegetation. We walk mostly over rocks, snow and ice to reach the basecamp. The camp is usualy over snow here.

Day 04 : Lamkhaga Pass basecamp (Kinnaur) to Lamkhaga Pass basecamp (Gangotri Side) via Lamkhaga Pass (5,282 m), 8-9 hours trek: 11 km

Today could be a tough day depending on the ice conditions. The trail is marked by chortens (religious stone mounds), and crosses snow slopes between two ribs and possible crevasses. The climb is fairly steep and we may require a safety rope. The views from the pass are truly rewarding. The rivers flowing on either side of the pass flow into the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. The path on the other side is also steep and a rope may be needed again.

Day 05 : Lamkhaga Pass Base Camp to Kyarkoti (3,820 m), 7-8 hours trek: 16 km

On this day, we cross the river to the true left of the valley. The landscape changes again and vegetation fills it up. The lovely meadow at Kiarkoti makes for a beautiful campsite.

Day 06 : Kyarkoti to Harsil (2,400 m); drive to Gangnani, 6-7 h trek 14 km

The trail continues along the river Jalandhari through dense forest, waterfalls and streams, which we need to cross. We either camp at Harsil or drive for about 30 min to Gangnani and stay in a guest house. Gangnani is known for its natural hot water spring baths.

Day 07 : Harsil/Gangnani to Dehradun drive, 7 h drive: 217 km

This is the final day of the trip and we drive back to Dehradun.
