Detailed Itinerary


Day 01 : Dehradun - Karanprayag - Lohajung, 8-9 hours' drive


We begin the journey early in the day. Its a long drive and after we set out from Dehradun we proceed towards Devprayag, the confluence of River Alaknanda and Bhagirathi. We stop enroute for breakfast preferably at Kaudiyala, at someplace overlooking river Ganges. The drive further provides us opportunity to visit two more Prayags, i.e. Rudraprayag and Karanprayag. We stop for lunch at the latter. Finally we make our to Lohajung. We reach Lohajung by evening and retire to the comfort of a guest house.


Day 02 : Lohajung (2,100 m) to Didna (2,400 m), 11km : 3-4 hours' hike


The first day's hike takes us to the beautiful village of Didna, which is situated at an approximate distance of 11 kms, which lies on the opposite, eastern bank of Neelganga river. The ridge futher up on the eastern side climbs up to Ali Bugyal, to the North of which is located Bedni Bugyal, our destination for the next day. Overnight in camps/ guest-house.


Day 03 : Didna to Bedni Bugyal (3,505 meters), 3-4 hours' hike : 12 km


Today we will trek 11 km to reach the Alpine Meadow of Bedni Bugyal (3350 mts), probably one of the best camping sites in the Garhwal Himalayas. Dinner and overnight stay in tents. Alternate route to Bedni Bugyal is via the scenic Auli Bugyal. However this will add one more day to the itinerary.


Day 04 : Bedni Bugyal to Patar Nauchani : 3-4 hours' hike : 6 km


We begin the day at ease and after breakfast we head up the trail clearly visible from Bedni almost halfway to Patar Nauchani. The entire elevation gain is only up to the topmost section that is already visible to us. After reaching this section we get splendid views of the snowcapped Trishul up ahead and Nanda Ghunti to our left. The trail henceforth descends slightly as we proceed further to Patar Nauchani campsite.

 

Day 05 : Patthar Nauchani To Bhagguwa Basa,  3 to 4 hours' hike


After breakfast we trek to Bhaguwa Basa. Bhaguwa means flowery park and Basa means place. And rightly the place is full of variety of flowers including the rare Brahma Kamal(state flower of Uttarakhand), a special godly lotus found only between altitudes of 14000 - 15000 ft. Today we will trek 5 km, to reach today's campsite at Bhaguwa Basa. Dinner and overnight in tents.


Day 06 : Bhagguwa Basa to Roopkund Lake (4800 meters) and Back to Bedni Bugyal : 9-10 hours' hike 16 km

 

It is a hard day and by early morning we are at Roopkund (4800 mts). Roopkund is a picturesque and beautiful tourist destination in the Himalayas, located near the base of two Himalayan peaks: Trishul (7120 m) and Nandghungti (6310 m). In the afternoon we trek back to Bedni Bugyal for dinner and overnight stay.


Day 07 : Bedni Bugyal to Wan to Lohajung, 3 to 5 hours' hike

 

Today we set out towards Wan and finally drive to Lohajung. The route taken goes through dense forests with plenty of Rhododenderon trees (Buransh), the red flowers of which are used to extract and make a juice. We descend to Gharoli Patal and further down to the bed of a river stream before we begin climbing towards Wan village. This journey will take 3-4 hrs. From Wan we drive to Lohajung which lies 17 km from here. Dinner and overnight in guest-house in Lohajung.
