Day wise Details and Description

Day 1: Dehradun to Govindghat via Joshimath (315 km) (8/9 hours)

From Dehradun, a vehicle will be arranged for you to travel along the Ganga, Alaknanda, and Mandakini rivers. Enjoy the wonderful view of the hills outside your window and the confluence of the Alaknanda and Bhagirathi while travelling. In Chamoli, Govindghat is the starting point for numerous well-known treks, including the Valley of Flowers, Pangarchulla, and Kuari Pass. In Govindghat, arrangements will be arranged in a hotel.

Day 2: Govindghat to Bhyundar village and Roop Dhungi (12 km) (6/7 hours)

After breakfast, depart early for Bhyundar Village; the opening portion of the hike involves a hard elevation, but it then flattens out. As you proceed, the flowing Alaknanda can be heard in the background. Explore the deep woodlands filled with blossoming Rhododendrons and look out for Himalayan fauna here. Roopdhungi is the designated campsite for the day; set up your tents there and call it a day.

Day 3: Roop Dhungi to Samartoli and Raj Kharak (14 km) (8 hours)

Have a wholesome breakfast before moving on to Raj Kharak and Simartoli. The trail is beautiful today, and the massive Himalayan peaks can be seen rising in the distance. Raj Kharak is the campground; to get there, hike through Bankbara and Dangkharak. Pitch up your tents, have some delectable meals, and sleep soundly.

Day 4: Raj Kharak to Kagbhusandi Lake via Kankul Pass (4960 m) (8 km) (5/6 hours)

Today, make your way up to the 5230-meter-high Kagbhusandi Lake. Raj Kharak is 5 kilometres away, and it takes 4 to 5 hours to travel there. The landscape is ever-changing, beginning with the amusing sight of flowering meadows and verdant valleys before changing to tight pathways and large stones farther on. You will be astounded when you cross the Kankul Pass and see the Hathi Peak, Chaukhamba Peaks, Nar Narayan Peaks, and Neelkanth Peaks. See countless flowers blooming, including Brahma Kamal, Phen Kamal, and Myriad with other flower kinds.

Day 5: Kagbhusandi Lake to Gouncha Udiyar (8 km) (4/5 hours)

Gouncha Udiyar, today's campground, is located 8 kilometres from Kagbhusandi Lake. The trail is noteworthy because of the panoramic views of snow-covered mountains, tiny rivulets, deep forests, and undulating meadows. When you get to Goucha Udiyar, where there are various villages, talk to the residents and learn about their customs and culture. Enjoy your stay in Gouncha Udiyar for the night.

Day 6: Gouncha Udiyar to Panika (10 km) and drive to Govindghat (7 km)

Once you approach Panika, begin your descent. There are only a few wooden cottages in the small village of Panika, and the trek continues until Govindghat. There will be arrangements made in a hotel.
