GARHWAL AND KUMAON SIGHTSEEING 1

 

There are a number of famous peaks, including Trisul and Nanda Devi. India's second-highest mountain. There are also many important pilgrimage sites, such as Badrinath, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Gangotri, near the source of Ganges. The trekking routes pass through rich, green forest and cross beautiful meadows carpeted with flowers in summer. The best time to trek here are May-June and September-October. Some places, like the valley of flowers and the high altitude bugyals, are at their best ]during the July-August rainy period. HAR-KI-DUN VALLEY This popular trek up the beautiful Har-ki-Dun Valley can be undertaken from April to November. Accommdation is available in PWD Rest Houses along the way and food can be bought in the villages. During July and August it would be possible to cross from Har-KI-Dun Valley to Yamunotri via the Majhakanda Pass. The trail starts at Osla and since it's sometimes difficult to follow, it's advisable to hire a guide there. Osla to Yamunotri takes four to five days. DODITAL Most people go only from Kalayani to the lake at Dodital and back, but with a tent you can continue on to the other roadheat at Hanumanchatti. The turnoff to Kalayani is at Gangori, five km after Uttarkashi on the Gangotri to the railhead at Kalyani. Then it's three to four hours walk to the Forest Rest House at Agoda. From there five to six hours walking bring you to another Forest Rest House at Dodital. Set in a forest of oak, pine, deodara and rhododendron, the lake is filled with trout.
