  • Altitude: 2,300m/ 7,600ft.
  • Driving distance: 250km | 10hrs.
  • Pick-up place: TTH head office (Tapovan, Rishikesh) | Time: 6:00 am

  • Local market and network available at Lohajung.
  • Stay: In a guesthouse.
  • Route: Rishikesh - Devpryag - Srinagar - Rudraprayag - Karanprayag - Dewal - Lohajung

The journey commences at Rishikesh. Our representatives will pick you up from the Trek The Himalayas office in Rishikesh at 6:00 AM and we will drive to Lohajung, the base village for our trek. Lohajung is located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand and is 250 km away from Rishikesh. It takes about 10-11 hours to reach the village. Transportation to Lohajung will be arranged by Trek The Himalayas in Tata Sumo or a similar vehicle. Reaching Lohajung you will check into the guesthouse. 

From Rishikesh to Lohajung, you will drive across mountain roads, and on a clear day, you can see the Garhwal Himalayas in the distance. Drive along with a tranquil setting with the River Ganga keeping you company. Along the way, you will come across three of the five major holy confluences of the country; Devprayag, Rudraprayag, and Karanprayag. Devprayag sees the confluence of the Alakananda and Bhagirathi Rivers. You can see distinct turquoise and teal colours of two rivers merging together. Passing Srinagar, you will come across Rudraprayag, the confluence of Mandakini and Alakananda River, and about 33 kms from Rudraprayag lies the third confluence on your route, Karanprayag - the confluence of Mandakini and Pindar River.

Lohajung brings you face to face with the majestic Nanda Ghunti peak. If we arrive before sunset, you can catch a beautiful sunset on the mountain peak, painting it in incredible hues. There’s interesting folklore revolving around the naming of the village. The locals say that Goddess Parvati had a ‘Jung’ (war in Hindi) with a demon named ‘Lohasur’ here and hence the naming of the village. Lohajung has a small market as well where you can purchase trek gear and essentials that might be valuable on your trek. 

How-Brahmatal-Trek-Looks-On-Day-1

These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

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

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

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.

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.

Buses are always more reliable. Whichever bus you choose, just make sure to reach Rishikesh at least by 05:30 am positively.
