Trek Route

Day 1 (6 km/ 6 hrs). Start the trek at Dharali/ Harsil, loading up on supplies at
Harsil. The climb begins almost immediately once one hits the trail. Camp for
the night is set just short of Gagnan, in a lush green valley. Altitude: 9,800 ft.

Day 2 (15 km/ 10 hrs). Hit the trail by 8 am and aim to get to Kyarkoti, the next
valley, which serves as camp for the night. Rest here for a day to acclimatise.
Altitude: 12,200 ft.

15,000 ft.

Day 5 (4.5 km/ 4.5 hrs) Edging closer to the pass. Altitude: 16,500 ft.

Day 7 The route is supposed to lead one from Nichil Thhat to Dumti but we lost a
day to heavy rain. Altitude: 14,000 ft.

Day 8 (12 km/ 4 hrs) Camping near the same location, but on the other side of the Baspa River, having crossed the glacier of its origin. Altitude: 14,000 ft.

Day 9 (29 km/ 12 hrs) Nichil Thhat to Ranikanda via Dumti. The ITBP camp at
Dumti, seems like the first sight of human civilisation here. Altitude: 14,000 ft at Dumti.
