Day wise Details and Description

Day 1: Drive from Dehradun/Rishikesh to Joshimath

You will be picked up by our vehicle in Dehradun or Rishikesh and driven further upward to Joshimath. We strongly advise trekkers to rest for the night after checking into a hotel because the journey will take hours.

Day 2: Joshimath to Lata Village

Currently, a moderately challenging trail leads from Joshimath to the settlement of Lata. When they arrive, hikers can locate modest lodgings and mingle with the locals before turning in for the evening. Remember to stop at the renowned Nanda Devi Temple.

Day 3: Lata Village to Lata Kharak

Following breakfast, the hike to Lata Kharak begins via the Bhelta crossing through the cedar and pine woods. This ascent will lead to Lata Kharak's camping area. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Nanda Ghunti, Ronti, and Hathi Parvat peaks.

Day 4: Lata Kharak to Dharansi Pass camp

The climb for today will be a climb up to Jhandidhar. Leave the Lata Kharak campground and set off for the camp at the Dharansi Pass. Trekkers will be able to take in the picturesque view of clearly visible towering peaks as the distance to Jhandi Dhar decreases. The best views of peaks like Chaukhamba, Dronagiri, and Hathi will be available. From Tolma village, where the last campsite of Dharansi Pass will stretch, hikers will now follow that route.

Day 5: Dharansi Pass Camp to Debrugheta and back to Dharansi Pass camp

Teams will begin investigating the Deburgheta path early in the day. The trail ends at Deburgheta, from which point you can enter the Nanda Devi Sanctuary's inner forbidden territory. Spend some time there and take in the breathtaking Nanda Devi Peak's splendour before teams hike back to the Dharansi Pass campground.

Day 6: Dharansi Pass camp to Hitoli

The teams will descend to Jhandi Dhar and then proceed along the Hitoli camping route. You will pass through some breathtaking Himalayan vegetation on the route. Prior to continuing on to Joshimath, this trek will spend the night at the Hitoli campground.

Hike to the village of Tolma and then on to Surai Thotha. While you wait for your vehicle accommodations, spend some time chatting with the locals. From the settlement, take a drive to Joshimath, where hikers can continue their exploration. Register at a hotel in the area, then spend the evening strolling around Joshimath to discover its cultural significance.

Day 8: Joshimath to Rishikesh

The trekkers will depart for the closest airport, train station, or bus stop.
