    Overview

    Kalindi Khal Trek

    The Kalindi Khal Trek connects Gangotri and Badrinath and is an incredibly difficult expedition-style traverse of the Kalindi Khal Pass in the magnificent Garhwal Himalayas. A walk through rough glaciers, rocky screens, and crevassed snowfields is part of the route. We sometimes need to rope up, which necessitates the use of ice axes and crampons. From the Bhagirathi Valley to the Alaknanda Valley, the Kalindi Khal trek takes you midway around Garhwal. Shivling at 6,543 metres, Meru at 6,630 metres, Kedar Dome at 6,808 metres, Bhagirathi group at 6,856 metres, Nilkantha at 6,506 metres, Chandra Parvat at 6,728 metres, Avalanche Peak at 6,413 metres, Kamet at 7,756 metres, Mana at 7,272 metres, and Abi Gamin at 7,355 metres are among the highest and most majestic peaks in the Indian Himalayan range Read More

    Itinerary Details

    Arrive in Gangotri
    Gangotri can only be reached by road. By 3 p.m., you should have arrived. The road trip will begin in either Dehradun or Rishikesh, but with a new route now open, reaching Gangotri via Dehradun is the quickest choice (around 242 Kms). We will send you information about accommodation in Gangotri via email. Check into the Guest House/Hotel if you arrive. Rest for a day. The evening can be used to visit the local market, temples, and other attractions.
    Day - 1
    Rest & Acclimatisation in Gangotri
    A complete rest day.
    Day - 2
    Gangotri to Bhojwasa (12,467 ft) - 14 km
    We begin our journey towards Chirbasa after breakfast in the morning (3600 m). You can go from Gangotri to Chirbasa, which is on the tree line, by following the beaten path. The Bhagirathi River runs through the entire journey until Chirbasa. In Chirbasa, we would eat our packed meal. Today we continue our journey from Chirbasa to Bhojwasa. For the rest of the day, the hike will be heavy. After Chirbasa, the landscape becomes desolate and barren. Many hikers have referred to it as Arctic Tundra. Until Bhojwasa, the entire trail passes through thick woodland. Near the river, there is a small temple and a potential campsite. It's a nice spot to set up camp for the day.
    Day - 3
    Bhojwasa to Tapovan (14,632 ft) via - Gomukh (12,795 ft) - 13 km
    Enjoy the panoramic view of the Bhagirathi group of peaks first thing in the morning. Trek to Gomukh (3890mt), the Ganges' source, after breakfast. The Ganga's water trickles down from the ice at Gomukh. It was given the name 'Gomukh' by the sages because it resembled a cow's mouth in the distant past. Explore the area and hike to Tapovan, one of the region's most beautiful high-altitude alpine meadows. The climb from Gomukh to Tapovan is steep, and the view of the surrounding peaks improves as we ascend. Tapovan is a lovely surprise with a vast meadow complete with bubbling streams, wildflowers, and campsites. Tapovan is renowned for its stunning meadows that encircle the base camp of the Shivling peak. On mountain ridges, herds of Bharal (blue mountain goats) are a frequent sight. The Bhagirathi I, II, and III (6454mt) on the other side of the glacier provide an equally remarkable backdrop. It's no surprise that Sadhus and saints flock to this location for extended meditation during the long summer months. Arrive in Tapovan and pitch your tent. Staying in camp for dinner and the night.
    Day - 4
    Tapovan to Nandanvan (14,271 ft) via Meru Glacier - 8 km
    On this day, we get up early and travel to the magnificent Meru Glacier. We return to Nandanvan via Gomukh glacier after a short stop to explore Meru Glacier. The path from Tapovan leads down and onto the glacier, passing through the upper section of the meadow. Turn right from Gomukh towards Nandanvan (4340m) and you'll be on top of the Gangotri glacier. The glacier is sandwiched between two mountain ranges, and landslides have created a layer of rocky moraine on the ice that makes walking easier. The glacier walk is extremely slick, and even a minor lapse in concentration could be fatal. Huge chasms could be seen here and there. There is a vertical climb after about a kilometre of walking. Big rocks along the trail provide grip and footholds, but many of them are also misleading. Tents were used for dinner and the night.
    Day - 5
    Nandanvan to Vasuki Tal (16,010 ft) - 6 km
    Vasuki Tal, a splendid base for Mt Satopanth and Mt Vasuki Parbat with a small lake, is reached by a morning hike along the Chaturangi Glacier. The ascent is gradual but steady.
    Day - 6
    Rest & Acclimatization at Vasuki Tal
    Rest day to relax your body.
    Day - 7
    Vasuki Tal to Khara Patthar (17,060 ft) - 6 km
    Today's hike will last 6 hours. The view of Mount Sathopanth is enough to make the trip worthwhile. It is one of India's only two hills with a height of over 7000 metres.
    Day - 8
    Khara Patthar to Sweta Glacier (17,880 ft) - 8 km
    The hike today is just a few miles long. The campsite is a moraine region full of rocks and boulders; it's not perfect, but it's necessary for acclimatisation.
    Day - 9
    Sweta Glacier to Kalindi Base Camp (18,569 ft) - 6 km
    Today will be an early start for us. It's a short stroll, but with the majority of the trek taking place in the moraine, it's always a good idea to plan ahead. On the way, you'll pass by Chatrungi Glacier, which got its name from the four colours that can be seen there (pink, yellow, brown, and green). This glacier's glacial flow is a major tributary to Gangotri Glacier. Today's camping spot is Kalindi Bhamak, which is adjacent to the Kalindi Glacier's snout. Avalanche and Kalindi Peak are just up ahead, and Kalindi Khal/Pass is just up ahead.
    Day - 10
    Kalindi Base Camp to Rajaparav (16,076 ft) via Kalindi Khal (19,488 ft) - 13 km
    Today is D Day, and everyone can get up and ready as soon as possible. The climb to the pass is not easy by any means, so we must maintain a steady pace until we reach the top. When you reach the pass, you will find that all of your toil and effort was well worth it. On a clear day, you will see Mt. Kamet, Mt. Mana, Chandra Parbat, Vasuki Parbat, and, on a clear day, the Tibetan Plateau. After crossing the glacial terrain, we'll camp at Raj Parav today.
    Day - 11
    Rajaparav to Arwa Tal (14,763 ft) - 13 km
    Arwa Tal is reached after a long trek through glacier terrain.
    Day - 12
    Arwa Tal to Badrinath (9,842 ft) via roadhead at Ghastoli (12,467 ft) - 12 km
    Today we will arrive in Ghastoli after a long walk through the moraines. As you get closer to Ghastoli, the landscape will change drastically from grey to green. Ghastoli is a lovely meadow that is a visual delight. Drive to Badrinath from the Mana Pass route.
    Day - 13
    Badrinath to Dehradun - 295 km drive
    We'll board a bus bound for Dehradun. The Alaknanda River runs through Devprayag, where it meets the Ganges, on the way to Dehradun. From Dehradun, take an overnight bus to Delhi.
    Day - 14
    Reserve Day
    This day will only be used if bad weather or unpredictable conditions make it necessary during the trek. It is recommended that you add a day to your travel itinerary as a buffer. If you use the buffer day, you could pay us Rs. 4500 per day (INR) + 5% GST / per person. The Trek Leader will be the one to accumulate the money.
    Day - 15
