Feels like heaven surrounded by the mountains. Delhi to Delhi is 13 days app cost Rs 20,000/. Route is Delhi, Kausani, Bageshwar, Song, Loharkhet, Dhakuri, Khati, Dwali, Phurkia, Zero Point (Pindari Glacier 12870 feet), Wayaligar, Khati, Dhakuri, Loharkhet, Song, Bageshwar, Delhi. Max height 4,260 metres.

1st view of the snow covered peaks from Dhakuri. Aim is to climb Mt Nanda Khat 6,611 metres. Editor I did the trek to Pindari with 3 others years ago. These pictures bring back old memories. While trekking at night I nearly fell into the Pindari river. Spent the night in a hut since it was pouring. Next morning the hut owner showed how close to death I was.

On the menu, fully Indian style. Editor - When I went all that we got was Potato curry and paranthas and Eggs. Menu has improved big time.

I want to hug all the green, it is heaven.

The magnanimous rocky hill on both sides making the trek more challenging. Editor I remember there rocky hill, in the centre was river, barely place to walk.

Best way to be in the mountains, just enjoy.

The flowers are all over as the snow melts and rains are ready

The tiny yellow flowers that carpet all the ground

Grazing time.

Not only yellow there are more colors to come.
