Nandadevi Tea House Trekking ::----->>
Area : Garhwal Himalayas
Duration : 10 Days.
Altitude : 4250 m/13940 ft
Grade : Moderate to tough
Season : July - Mid October

Everest may well be the highest peak in the world but the beautiful peak of Nanda Devi must surely be the most fascinating. The area first came to the attention of the Western world as a result of the 19th century explorations by Trail, Graham and Long staff but shot to fame in the 1930's when Shipton and Tilman forced a route into the Inner Sanctuary. Nanda Devi is the highest mountain situated completely within India and is surrounded by a ridge wall of nearly 6000m. The only break in this wall is the Rishi Ganga, a wild and seemingly impenetrable gorge.

This amazing feat of endurance and determination was capped when Tilman later returned to conquer the peak itself. Sadly, the mystic of the area led to an excess of expeditions and ecological damage and the Sanctuary was closed in the 1980's. Investigations are currently underway to assess the recovery.

Pindari, the most accessible glacier in the Kumaon region, is located at 3820 mt. in Patti Malla Danpur of Almora district.
