The trek covers a distance of approximately 90 kilometers and reaches an altitude of 5,282 meters. It requires a high level of physical fitness and acclimatization to complete this trek. Here is a detailed itinerary for the Lamkhaga Pass Trek, along with things to carry.

Day wise Details and Description

Day 1: Pickup from Dehradun Railway Station and Drive to Harsil

From Dehradun, board a vehicle and enjoy the scenic journey along the Bhagirathi River's bank and forest stretches to Harsil base camp. It is the starting point for the Lamkahaga pass trek.

Day 2: Trek from Harsil to Lal Devta camp

Prepare to leave after breakfast for the Lal devta campsite. The distance is 7 kilometres and can be completed in 4 to 5 hours. You will be walking through a dense forest under the shade of trees. Travel through dense forest, taking rest stops along the way to Lal devta. Set up your tents and retire for the night.

Day 3: Trek from Lal Devta camp to Kyarkoti

The journey to Kyarkoti takes you through dense forest, with glimpses of massive waterfalls and surreal landscapes along the way. The Lamkhaga Pass trail is not levelled but is not difficult; it has some ascents and descents; the ascents are steep at first but gradually become less steep; this area is rich in fauna, so you may see some animals and a variety of birds. Enjoy the day with mountain goats and snow leopards, then set up camp at Kyarkoti and retire for the night.

Day 4: Trek From Kyarkoti to Lamkhaga base

If there is more snow today, the journey may become difficult. Begin your journey early. The climb to Lamkhaga's base is steep and through a narrow valley, requiring proper equipment. As you climb higher and gain altitude, you will notice ice crystals; it becomes cooler as you ascend. You will arrive at Lamkhaga Pass Base Camp, the camp with blooming flowers. Arrive at the campsite, pitch your tents, and spend the night.

Day 5: Rest day for Acclimatization

You can take a short hike nearby and then relax for the day. Acclimatizing the body is critical because it prevents altitude motion sickness.

Day 6: Trek from Lamkhaga base camp to Lamkhaga Pass

Because the ascent to the summit lamkhaga pass is steep, today will be the longest and most difficult day of the trek. So get started as soon as possible. After breakfast, continue your journey with a packed lunch. Be cautious as you make your way uphill through the rough boulder area. After many hours of trekking, you will arrive at the 5281-meter-high Lamkhaga Pass.

Day 7: Trek from Dundhar camp to Dumti camp

The trek to Dumti is long, so start early and eat breakfast. A packed lunch will be provided at the halfway point of the trek. The trail includes both steep ascents and descents. After crossing it, arrive in Dumti, set up your tents, and enjoy a relaxing stay.

Day 8: Trek from Dumti camp to rani kanda

Today's trail will astound you with its beauty and hold many surprises for you. Be captivated by the Himalayas' inexplicable beauty. Trek through undulating meadows filled with colourful wildflowers and catch a glimpse of massive, clear waterfalls. Arrive at Rani Kanda, your campsite for the day, and set up your tents before retiring for the night.

Day 9: Trek from Rani kanda to Chitkul Road head

Trek from Rani Kanda to Chitkul village, the last village in Baspa valley. It is near the banks of a river. Beautiful wooden houses and cultivated green pasturelands complement each other beautifully. After a few hours of trekking, you will arrive at the village of Chitkul.
