Why Pindari Glacier Is A Must-Do Trek?

Located in the beautiful Kumaon Himalayas, this glacier attracts both beginners and expert trekkers every year. Pindari Glacier is situated in Nanda Devi Sanctuary and is the source of the Pindar River, which meets Alaknanda at Karanprayag. The route traverses through the southern face of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary amidst its wilderness and along the way, you will catch arresting views of Himalayan peaks like Maiktoli (6,803 m) and Panwali Dwar (6,683 m). To the right of the Pindari Glacier lies the Kafni Glacier. The route to the two glaciers is the same until Dwali, when the road bifurcates, one towards the Pindari Glacier and one towards Kafni Glacier.

The Kumaon Himalayas are blessed with an abundance of natural beauty and this trek offers varied natural splendors all along the trek. Pindari Glacier lies at the edge of Nanda Devi Peak and the zero point takes you to an astounding altitude of 3,660 meters. This is one of the most easily accessible glaciers in our country and is suitable for anyone who wishes to do the trek. Throughout the trek, you will pass through Rhododendron forests, lush meadows, green valleys, and cascading rivers to the Pindari Glacier summit, where you are welcomed with spellbinding views of Nanda Devi peak. This is one of the most beautiful treks that will leave you speechless after with its incredible scenery.

About The Trek

Your trek to this beautiful Himalayan glacier starts at Kharkia, a small village approximately 100 km from Bageshwar, and after crossing a series of remote Himalayan parts like Dwali and Phurkia, you will touch the zero point of the glacier at an altitude of 12,300 ft.

From Kharkiya its a short trek to Khati, where you will get to witness beautiful Rhododendron blooms and views of Himalayan peaks like Nandabaner, Nandakot, and Lapsadhura. BSNL network is available in some parts of the trek. Day 3 is a longer trek to Dwali. Whether here can be unpredictable, so be prepared accordingly. You will pass through a landslide zone and also get glimpses of Kafni Valley on your left.

The next day is another short trek to Phurkia and you will get to see the Pindar River flowing below you, the glacier is not too far from here. On clear days, Mt. Nandakhatt amp Nanda Devi is vividly visible. You will pass through a meadow where you may spot Himalayan Ibex and also cross a frozen stream. The following day is your summit day as you reach the pinnacle of the trek at 12300 ft. Mt. Nanda Khat is visible from here and you will get to see other mountain peaks like Mt. Bauljuri and Mt. Changuch as well. After spending some time at the glacier you will return to Phurkia.

The next days descent begins as you trek down to Khati via Dwali through the same path that you came in and the next day you will descend from Khati to Kharkia and drive back to Kathgodam ending your incredible Himalayan journey.

What Can You Expect At The Trek

The trek to Pindari Glacier is long but it is easier to complete as compared to other glacier treks in the country. The trek has a medium gradient and from Khati to Phurkia, you will have to cross some caved-in sections and land-slide zones. The glacier itself is 3.2 km in length and 1.5 km in breadth. Mid-April to November is a great time to do the trek, however, it is best to avoid the monsoon season due to landslides and roadblocks.

During April and May, the temperature ranges from  15°C to 20°C during the day and drops between  7°C to 2°C at night. From September to November, the daytime temperature ranges between  15°C to 10°C, and at night it ranges between  5°C to -5°C

The trail has well-defined paths with only one minor pass-crossing. It starts with flat hikes through Rhododendron covers followed by mountain ridges, spider walls, and stream crossings. You also get to learn about local culture and tradition from the local villages that you will pass on your way.

Our mountaineering-certified trek leaders are there to assist you along with the rough patches and all along the way. Our guides are locals who know the mountains like the back of their hands and thus give you a very intimate and comprehensive experience of the Himalayan terrains. Safety is one of our top priorities and our Trek Leaders are also Wilderness First Aid Responders, so you can be assured that you will be safe at all times during the trek.

We offer comfortable transfers from Kathgodam to Khati and back, and a cook accompanies us on our trek, who can serve up delicious local cuisine. At night you will stay in comfortable camps. We provide 3-person tents on twin sharing basis to make your stay in the mountains as comfortable as possible.

Since it is a high-altitude trek, the weather may get unpredictable at times, so you should dress appropriately in layers so that you are prepared to tackle all kinds of weather.

Khati is an ancient village with exciting mythological stories attached to it.


From Kathgodam to Khati it’s a scenic drive through the beautiful Kumaon region. You will pass through many scenic destinations like Bheemtal, Almora, Bageshwar, and Kapkot to arrive at the quaint hamlet of Khati. Almora and Bageshwar are two beautiful towns of Kumaon and all along the route, you will see a lot of greenery all around.

According to the folklore, it is believed that this village served as a home for the Pandavas when they were in exile. Only the BSNL network is available in some parts of the village. There is also no electricity in the village and the locals rely on solar power for electricity generation. Once we reach Khati we will stay the night at the Khati campsite. Make yourself comfortable and after dinner rest in your tents.

Day 2 : Trek From Khati To Dwali | Walk By The Beautiful Pindar River
    • Altitude: 2,600 m/ 8,600 ft
    • Trek Distance: 13 km Duration: 7-8 hr
    • Altitude Gain: 400 m/ 1,300 ft
    • Water Source: Multiple water sources on the trek
    • Cross 6 landslide zones
    • Stay in camps (twin-sharing)

Today is a long trek and we have quite a bit of walking to do so we will start our day with a hearty breakfast. From Khati to Dwali, you will cover a distance of 13 km which takes around 6 to 7 hrs depending on the speed of the trekker.


A significant part of today’s trek will be filled with the sound of gurgling water as the Pindar Ganga river accompanies you on the trek. You will cross some log bridges and beautiful waterfalls as you stride towards Dwali. You will come across many caved-in zones and landslide-prone areas in today’s trek. Many parts of the trail have been broken by the 2013 calamity and thus the trail is quite fractured, the trekkers need to be cautious and follow the instructions of the trek leader for safe passage. Weather in the Pindar Valley is quite unpredictable and is prone to rain and as such we will start early.


The initial part of the trek for about 20 minutes is a little strenuous with a steep ascent. Completing the ascent, you will get a bird’s eye view of the Khati village behind you. After another 15 minutes, the uphill gradient gradually reduces and soon you will pass by a stream. This is your first water point in today’s trek. You can fill your water bottle here if you please. The trail turns left from here passing by the KMVN guest lodges and it gradually ascends until you reach a wooden bridge, this bridge helps you cross the first landslide zone. After crossing the bridge the trail becomes quite narrow and descends rapidly and you are inside a forest cover once again. You will spot the beautiful Pindar River rushing down on your left and you will come across another steep descent.  Walk downhill for 15 more minutes and the trail levels out a bit, after walking for another 5 minutes, you will arrive at the second landslide zone.


The trail in front of you is broken due to the disaster of 2013 and hence we will take a detour towards the left and climb down towards the Pindar River. Be a little cautious as the descent can be a little slippery. Once at the River, cautiously cross the bouldered landslide zone. Follow your trek leaders advice to cross the area safely. Crossing the section, you will spot a temporary trail moving up towards the same ridge that you came down from and this again connects you to the trail to Dwali. The climb up is steep and slippery and so you need to be careful. On reaching the ridge, walk straight ahead until you are in a forest ridge. Walk for about 10 minutes and you will come across another landslide zone. You have to leave the Dwali trail once again and recede down to the riverbank walking along the riverbank through moraines and mountain bends you will reconnect with the Dwali trail once again.


Walk for 15 minutes and you are again at a landslide zone, this is the fourth landslide zone on the trail. Descend to the river once again all the way to the shepherd huts and a marked trail takes you up to the ridge once again. Walk through a short stretch of forest cover and soon you will spot the fifth landslide zone down below. Get ready for another detour and probably the longest one. Descend down to the riverbed and prepare yourself to cross a difficult moraine stretch. This is a difficult part and you have to cross huge boulders and a total of 4 scissor bends before you reach the ridge once again. Locating the trail to the ridge is quite difficult as it is hidden in dense vegetation. Do not worry our experienced guides and trek leaders are here to help you see the way through. The climb to the ridge can be a little strenuous.


Once you are back on the Dwali trail, keep walking ahead for about 15 minutes and you will arrive at an uphill section, the uphill stretch is about 2 km long and you will arrive at the sixth and final landslide zone. You will have to climb down the riverbed once again, the descent here is pretty unstable as the terrain is basically loose gravel and builders. Be cautious and take precautions to avoid any accidents. Once you are down at the riverbank, you have to walk through moraines until you are at a river crossing section. Diwali lies across the River and crossing the river, you will arrive at Dwali. The destruction caused by the calamity of 2013 is quite evident here. It washed away many sections of the old trail.


We will arrive in Dwali by the evening, where you can settle down at the campsite for a beautiful panoramic view. There’s a PWD guest house near the camping spot and drinking water is also available Youll have dinner at the campsite and an overnight stay in the camps.

Day 3 : Trek From Dwali To Phurkia | Cross Spiderwalls And Frozen Streams
    • Altitude: 3,200 m/ 10,500 ft | Distance: 5 km | Duration: 3 hr
    • Altitude Gain: 600 m/ 1,900 ft
    • Flora: Rhododendron, Oak
    • Fauna: Himalayan Ibex
    • Cross two frozen streams
    • Peak Views: Nanda Khat (6545 m), Nanda Devi East (7, 434 m)
    • Stay in tents (twin-sharing)

Today’s trek is fairly easy as compared to the previous days strenuous trek. After having a hot cup of tea and an earth breakfast, we will head out towards Phukria. It’s a short trek of 5 km for about 3 hrs and you will spot some beautiful Rhododendron forest on the way today. On a clear day, Mt. Nanda Devi and Nanda Khat are clearly visible in front of you. En route, you may spot Himalayan Ibex grazing in the pasturelands. Today you will come across another two stream crossings, which are nothing but layers of hard snow. Crossing through the stream, you will arrive at the Phurkia campsite. We will pitch our tents at the campsite and late in the evening, you will be served a hot and delicious meal.



Today is one of the most picturesque stretches on your trek and you will be greeted with stunning views of snow-capped mountains. The trail today leads you deep into the Pindar Valley and it soon starts to ascend upwards as you enter into beautiful Oak and Rhododendron cover. The trek has quite a few forested switchbacks as you gradually gain altitude. As you climb uphill, you will see the Pindar River flowing below in a narrow gorge. If the weather is clear, you will be able to see Mt. Nanda Khat (6545 m) and the Nanda Devi East (7,434 m) looming in the skyline ahead. Further ahead, you will see a green meadow which looks quite appealing and after about 30 minutes of walking, you will arrive here. This meadow is a great vantage point to click some nice photographs for the gram.


You will spot some glacial formations on the stream as it flows down to meet the river below. Across the river, you will get to see some Himalayan Ibexes grazing in the pasturelands near a lovely waterfall. You will now trek along this verdant grassland and cross another glacial stream to enter into another meadow, more scenic than the previous one. From the meadow, you will spot another crimson cover of Rhododendron on the top. It will take about 20 minutes to reach the forest. Entering the forest, you will have to cross a few landslide-prone patches and tricky sidewalls. Our trek leaders will assist you in crossing these difficult sections. It will take about 30-45 minutes to cross these fragmented sections safely.


There are two final stream crossings here and these streams are nothing but hard snow and scree. An ice axe is required here to make footholds and microspikes and crampons are quite useful as well. Remain on the left-hand side of the River and soon you will arrive at the Phurkia Campsite. Look for KMVN and PWD huts for landmarks to the Phurkia campsite. At the campsite a stunning view of the Nanda Khat peak welcomes you. Pitch your tent on the slopes and after a delicious dinner at night, you can rest in your tent.

Day 4 : Trek From Phurkia To Zero Point And Back To Phurkia | Summit Day
    • Altitude: 3,700 m/ 12,100 ft
    • Distance: 16 km | Duration: 6 to 7 hrs
    • Trek through the inner realms of Pindar Valley
    • Peak views: Nanda Khat (6545 m), Nanda Kot (6,861 m), Mt. Bauljuri (5,922 m), and Changuch Peak (6,322 m)
    • Stay in tents (twin-sharing)

Today is the most exciting day of your trek and the day you have been waiting for, it’s the summit day. Today we will head to the zero point of the summit and also descend back to Phurkia. From Phurkia, we will take the route on the left of the KMVN hut. It is an uphill hike and after trekking for about 15 minutes, you will arrive at the first stream crossing. The stream is basically a chunk of hardened snow and walks across it to enter the first meadow on your journey today. Trek straight along as the beautiful Mt. Nandakhat dominates the skyline. It is clearly visible from here and on your left, you will see the Pindar River flowing into a gorge below. After walking for about 20 minutes, you will arrive at a rockfall section. This is a pretty sensitive area, so you need to be watchful if there’s any rock falling from above. A little deep into the valley and you will notice patches of hard snow on the trail. Crampons are helpful here as the snow can be quite slippery and crampons will give you the much-needed traction. Soon we will arrive at Bhujani and then continue on towards the Zero Point. Be ready for the thrill of walking on the Pindari Glacier and enjoy a terrific summit view. We have a long trekking day in front of us, so we will start our day as early as possible to reach the summit and return back again. At 3700 m, breathtaking views of the flawless Himalayan landscape are going to leave you spellbound. Weather in Pindar Glacier can change in a matter of minutes so it is best to start early so that you reach the summit early and enjoy some great summit views. 


The trail soon gets pretty difficult and before you climb on the Pindar ridge the trail is broken in several places with little foot spacing and a couple of spider wall sections. From here you can clearly see the snow-capped peak of Mt. Bauljuri (5,922 m). Crossing such tricky sections, the trail now turns right and the greenery begins to recede giving way to the snowy ridge of the Pindar Valley. The snow begins to melt from June and the trail is a little easy at that time. It will take about 40 minutes to reach the top of the ridge following a gradual ascent. You will cross a couple of rivulets on the way and these are great water sources as well. Once on the top of the ridge, look on your left and you will catch the first glimpse of the Pindari Glacier on the left.  On your right, you can see the snow-ensconced Changuch peak (6,322 m).


You will cross through three ice fields and the snow can be pretty overwhelming in the months of April and May and this can slow you down on the trek.  On the left-hand side, you will see a hut and a temple, this is the home of the well-known Pindari Baba, Dharmanand Ji. From here, it will take 40 minutes more to reach the Pindari Glacier Zero Point. Follow the trail straight from Pindari Baba’s hut and keep walking until you reach a moraine ridge. Cross the ridge, and climb till you reach the high point. A board at the summit reads “You’ve reached the Zero-Point”. Treat your eyes to the spellbinding views of mountain peaks like Changuch peak and Nanda Kot (6,861 m). Spend some time at the summit, basking in the natural beauty and the feeling of accomplishment. We will then return to Phurkia in the same way that we came in. the return can be done pretty swiftly and stay the night in camps.

Day 5 : Trek From Phurkia To Khati Via Dwali | Begin Descending
    • Altitude: 2,200 m/ 7,300 ft
    • Trek Distance: 18 km | Duration: 7 to 8 hr
    • Altitude Loss: 1,000 m/ 3,200 ft
    • Stay in tents (twin-sharing)



This is your longest trekking day as you will have to trek for 18 km from Phurkia to Khati. It will take 7-8 hr to descend to Khati. From Phurkia, it takes about 2 hrs or less to descend to Dwali and it takes 4 to 5 hrs more to reach Khati. We will descend through the same route that we went up in and cross the same landslide zones on the way while walking along the banks of the Pindar River, we will reach the Khati campsite. We will stay overnight in the camps. Rest well after a long day of trekking.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

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.
