Prominent Peaks Spotted: Nanda Ghunti, Trishul, Nandadevi, Nandadevi East, Nandakut, Mrigathuni, Chhanguch, and Dangthal.

Your journey commences at Kathgodam, where our representative will pick you up from the Kathgodam Railway Station and drive you to the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary from where the trek starts. Binsar Sanctuary is about 110 km from Kathgodam and it takes about 4 hrs to drive to the Sanctuary. Kumaon is a scenic destination and the road from Kathgodam to Binsar demonstrates the extraordinary natural beauty. 

Your first stop during the trek is Sapteshwar Mahadev Temple. Once you reach the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, we will take the path that turns right from the sanctuary, leading us to the temple. The trek passes a village named Deora and after trekking for about 1.5 hrs, you will reach the temple. There’s a tea stall on the way to the temple, a great spot to rest for a while and refresh yourself before retracing the same path that we came in and restarting your Binsar trek.

Continue trekking in the northwest direction and soon the trail opens up in a scenic valley. You will be able to spot two diversions here and we will take the path that leads us deeper into the sanctuary. An irrigation channel also passes through the sanctuary, designed to divert water from the stream towards the nearby localities. There are two options that you choose from here: one is the cemented walls of the irrigation channel and the other is to walk down to the valley floor and continue in the northwest direction and soon after you will reach the same stream. Cross the concrete bridge to get to the other side and continue on your trek.

From the bridge, the trail begins to ascend gradually and after about an hour of ascending, you will come across a tiny hamlet within the confines of the sanctuary, after this village the road becomes levelled and you will continue to trek further northwest through pine covers before descending to a small stream. From this point, the path snakes along a hill and to your right side, directly below you can spot the villages again. The silence of the trek is often interrupted by the calls of the birds.

About an hours’ trek in the same direction leads you to a mud and brick hut, which is actually another tea stall, where you can relish a refreshing drink before you head on your path again. Once refreshed, follow the trail which now bends in the northeast direction progressing into a dense cover of Oak and Rhododendron. The bright red Rhododendrons when in full bloom add such a vibrant dose of red to the jungles that it leaves you awestruck. Keep your sight on the right and you will see many magnificent peaks blanketed in snow. 

Continue hiking for 2 to 3 hours more after which the trail spirals towards the east. When on this route if you just turn northwest, you will catch a glimpse of the hilltop with tiny houses, this is the village of Jwalabanj. From here a gradual descent on a well-defined path will lead you to Dhaulchina. Get unsurpassed views of the Kumaon region dotted with white peaks on the horizon. Trekking through the jungles of Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary is a remarkable experience and camping in the serene and peaceful environment of Dhaulchina is sure to melt all the stress away.

In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek.

Physical Fitness: Ensure your child is physically fit. Engage them in regular exercise, outdoor activities, and hikes to build stamina and endurance. Hydration: Emphasize the importance of staying hydrated at high altitudes. Encourage your child to drink water regularly, even if they don't feel thirsty. Proper Nutrition: Provide a well-balanced diet with sufficient carbohydrates for energy and foods rich in iron to prevent altitude sickness. Adequate Sleep: Ensure your child gets enough sleep in the days leading up to the trek. Quality rest is crucial for altitude adaptation. Educate on Altitude Sickness: Teach your child about the symptoms of altitude sickness, such as headache, nausea, and dizziness. Encourage them to communicate any discomfort immediately. Appropriate Clothing and Gear: Dress your child in layers to adjust to changing temperatures. Ensure they have appropriate trekking gear, including sturdy footwear. Positive Mindset: Foster a positive mindset. Encourage your child, and let them know it's okay to take breaks when needed. Medical Check-Up: Schedule a medical check-up before the trek to ensure your child is fit for high-altitude activities. Consult with a healthcare professional about any potential health concerns.

TTH takes special care to provide wholesome and nutritious food for children on treks. Here are some of the foods that are typically served for children:

Choosing the right trek for a beginner can be a bit overwhelming as there are many factors to consider such as distance, elevation gain, terrain difficulty, weather, and time of year. Here are some tips that can help you choose the right trek for a beginner:

1. Determine fitness level: Assess the fitness level of the beginner to understand their physical capabilities. This will help you select a trek that is challenging but not too difficult.

2. Choose a well-traveled trail: A well-traveled trail will have more amenities such as signposts, water stations, and shelter. It is also safer as there will be other hikers on the trail.

3. Consider the length of the trek: For beginners, it is recommended to start with a shorter trek that can be completed in a day or two. This will help them get acclimatized to trekking and build their confidence.

4. Look for gradual elevation gain: Choose a trek with a gradual elevation gain rather than steep ascents. This will make the trek easier and more enjoyable.

5. Check the weather: Check the weather forecast before selecting a trek. Avoid treks during the monsoon season or winter when the trails can be slippery or dangerous.

6. Research the trail: Read about the trail to get an idea of the terrain, altitude, and difficulty level. This will help you select a trek that is suitable for the beginner.

7. Consult with an expert: If you are unsure about which trek to choose, consult our trek expert Mr. Nitin (+91 70600 59773) between 10 AM to 6 PM (Tuesday - Friday). Mr. Nitin will provide you valuable advice and guidance.

Overall, it is important to choose a trek that is enjoyable, challenging but not too difficult, and suitable for the beginner's fitness level and experience.

It is not recommended for a beginner to choose a difficult Himalayan trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally challenging, especially if you are not used to the high altitude, steep slopes, and rugged terrain. Choosing a difficult trek without the proper experience, fitness level, and preparation can be dangerous and put you at risk of altitude sickness, injury, and other hazards.

If you are a beginner, it is recommended to start with an easier trek and gradually build up your skills and experience. This will help you understand the challenges of trekking in the Himalayas, and also prepare you physically and mentally for a more difficult trek in the future. It is also important to choose a trek that matches your fitness level, experience, and interest.

There is no specific age limit for a beginner trekker. However, it is important to consider your physical fitness, health condition, and personal interests before embarking on a trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally demanding, and requires a certain level of physical fitness and endurance.

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are above a certain age, it is recommended to consult with a doctor before embarking on a trek. It is also important to listen to your body and take breaks as needed during the trek to prevent exhaustion or injury.
