Adventure Travel Uttaranchal Himalaya

Mountaineering Expeditions Garhwal & Kumaon Region, Uttaranchal

The Garhwal and Kumon region in the state of Uttaranchal not only constitutes a large part of the Himalayas, but also contains some of the most challenging peaks - Nanda Devi, Trisul, Dunagiri, Kamet, Chaukhamba, Nilkanth, Bandarpoonch, etc.

Nanda Devi, whose name means Blessed Goddess, is the highest mountain in India. It is a great white double pyramid overlooking the sacred Garhwal region. Nanda Devi rises from a vast ring of high mountains that form the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, an amphitheater seventy miles in circumference and 6000m high, surrounding the Rishiganga valley. Only once in this giant cirque does the elevation drop below 5200 m.

Trisul is one of the more majestic mountains of the Garhwal region of the Himalayas. India's highest mountain, Nanda Devi (25,645 ft.), is northeast of Trisul, connected by a long narrow crest. Trisul was the first of the Garhwal mountains to be climbed, an ascent which even more importantly marked the world's first ascent of a 7,000 meter peak. In 1976, Trisul became the first 7,000 meter peak to be descended from summit to snowline on skiis. Today it remains the most frequently climbed of India's 7,000 meter peaks.

From the Chaukhamba Viewpoint, one can get lost in the mystery of the endless mountainscape. The scene is hypnotic that one may not get tired of gazing at the timeless peaks for hours together. On the left of Chaukhamba Viewpoint, lies the dense oak and rhododendron forest of Dwarikhal, passing through which is a breezy experience and enabling one to play hide and seek with the beaming Sun. Oaks and rhododendrons flash past as one approaches a natural water source just at the bottom of the forest. The water is more refreshing than the best soft drink available in the cities. On this way, one comes across a place called Ghurdauri, a sort of race-course in old times. Now, an engineering college has come up here. From here, one can gaze endlessly at the Himalayan ranges in rows and the Alaknanda flowing in perpetual peace.

Treks of Kumaon

Most of the trails in Kumaon are relatively easy, with gradual ascents and descents over rolling hills and through meadows (Bugials or Kharag). These trails offer breathtaking views of the high peaks such as Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot, Trisuli and Hardeol. Eastern Kumaon has recently been opened to foreign trekkers and the trails are dominated by the Panchchuli group of peaks. M o r e  I n f o.

Wildlife in Uttaranchal

In Uttaranchal the world-famous Corbett National Park has a flora and fauna, which is diverse as well as rare. Uttaranchal has several breath taking destinations for wildlife tourism. These are the Rajaji National Park, Govind Pashu Vihar, Asan Barrage, Chilla and Saptarishi Ashram (Bird Sanctuary), the last four being a delight for bird watchers.

Uttaranchal, making this state an ideal location for Eco-Tourism. Eco tourism includes Jungle Safaris, Trekking on forest trails, Nature Walks, catch and release of Mahaseer and other fish species. However, the utmost priority in all these activities is given to retaining the ecological fragility of the region.

Trekking Plan

Trekking involves walking uphill and sometimes steeply downhill, 6-7 hours daily with 10kgs on your back. The period of the trek can vary from 1 day to 30 days, depending on the masochistic tendencies of the people involved. Himalayas are spectacularly beautiful and can quickly stun the senses into submission. So trekking amidst the Himalayas is completely mind blowing. Uttaranchal Himalayas encompasses the major part of Indian Himalayas. Uttaranchal [Garhwal & Kumaon], harbouring many snow covered peaks above 6,500 meters, is an excellent destination for trekkers. Remained underdeveloped for a long time the area is still in its primitive form and has vast areas of pure wilderness, holding different cultures offering a chance to have a close encounter with outstanding views of greater Himalayan range.

Adventure Travel Uttaranchal

If you enjoy physical challenges and you are an adventure tour freak, Uttaranchal is the place for you. One of the most popular states of India, Uttaranchal is located in the hilly terrains of Himalayan Mountains. Tibet, Nepal, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh borders the state of Uttaranchal. Travel to any part of Uttaranchal and you will be served with a long menu of adventure activities. The domain of Himalayan Mountains makes it most apt for all types of adventure activities.

The lofty Himalayas, the rugged terrains, the impenetrable forest covers and the challenging rivers offer endless opportunities for the adventure seekers. Explore the Himalayas while you ski on its snow-clad mountain range, trek in its forests or climb up the hill tops of the majestic mountain ranges. If that's not enough, raft through the rivers of Uttaranchal, which has some very difficult challenges in its stores. Or be a wildlife lover and go for the trips to the wildlife sanctuary and the national parks of Uttaranchal.
