ABOUT THE DESTINATION

Trekking to East Nanda Devi Base Camp is on the bucket list of many trekkers. The second highest peak in Indian Himalaya, Nanda Devi despite being a challenging trek instigates passionate trekkers to take up this arduous journey. Alluring trekkers with the view of majestic Nanda Devi Peak, which happens to be one of the most stunning peaks in the world, the trek to the East Base Camp of Nanda Devi is an unmatched experience.


The trek begins with an easy climb from Munsyari, but gradually it gets tougher as soon as it reaches Bugdiyar. The trekking trail passes through the extensive meadows, deep valleys, ancient villages, gorges and high altitude glaciers. The trek also traverses through an old trade route, cuts through moraine fields, thick forests and offers a view that is splendid in all senses.

The trail to the Nanda Devi East camp is certainly very impressive, and when we blend it with historical background, it certainly makes it to the best trek of India. This particular part of Nanda Devi has always attracted many climbers and mountaineers, many of them clandestine to approach Nanda Devi Peak.

Today trek is easy and planned so for better acclimatization. After breakfast in the Hotel, we board a taxi and drive to Selapani (10 Kms)which is the last road head. The trek begins with a steep descent to Gori Ganga River. We cross the river through a bridge at a place called “Jimighat”. From here a gradual ascent along the river bring us to Lilam Village. Lilam is the winter home for the residents of Milam Village (Closer to Milam Glaciar).

We will arrive in Lilam by late afternoon.Overnight stay in Camps.

Trekking along the river we arrive in Bugdyar which is a beautiful camping site. It also has a small rest house. There is a memorial in Bugdyar which is dedicated to Villagers and army personnel who died in an avalanche in 1989. A cruel reminder of what nature’s fury can do to a place and its people.

DAY 4 : Bugdiyar to Rilkot (3200 M). 15 Kms, 7-8 Hours

Cross the bridge over the river. Initially the climb is steep upto a overhanging cliff which shelters a diety. The tail after that eases out. Now you are walking at the level of river parallel to it. This is probably the best section of the complete trail. There are two notable waterfall on the way both of the height of 80 M or more. The trail ascends gradually till we reach Rilkot by late afternoon. Overnight in the camps.

DAY 5 : Rilkot to Ghangar (3300 M). 12 Kms, 6-7 Hours
