Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Drive to Wan From Kathgodam

It is a 10-11 hour journey from Kathgodam to Wan. Wan is a small campsite 12 kms ahead of Lohajung. The stay at Wan will be at a Guest House. As you reach, you get a glimpse of Mt Nanda Ghunti and Trishuli, welcoming you for this wonderful winter trek.

Day 2: Trekking to Ghairoli Patal From Wan

The Trek for the day is mostly climb, but before that a small ascent to Ran ka dhar and another half hour descent to Neel Ganga and from here onwards, it’s a straight climb of 3 hrs. From Wan, the initial trail is cement route and through a few houses. This is a small walk of not more than 10 minutes and leads you into a jungle. From here, we will move up to the Latu Devta temple. Latu Devta is a deity worshiped by the locals. Before the starting of the Nanda Devi Jat Yatra, Latu Devta is worshiped by the people taking part in the yatra. While crossing the temple, you will find many trekkers visiting the temple, and your guides and helpers will even suggest you the same for a happy and safe trek. Ran ka Dhar, is a point half an hour from here, from where you have a complete view of the valley you left behind. The name ‘Ran aka Dhar’ means stream of blood, which was the result of the battle goddess Parvati had with the demon Lohasur. The trek further continues to Neel Ganga bridge, which gives a refreshing point on your trek. This trek further moves up to Ghairoli Patal through a forest of Oak and Rhododendron. There are lush green alpine meadows dotted with wild flowering plants, evergreen whispering and raging forest and varied landscape to simply grab the imagination of every trekker, and further the view of Trishuli is an icing on the cake as you enter Ghairoli Patal.

Day 3: Trekking to Bedni Bugyal from Ghairoli Patal

The trek today begins with a steep climb into an oak and rhododendron forest which leads you to a huge meadow. This further after walking for around 2 hrs leads you straight to one of the most beautiful alpine meadows in India, Ali Bugyal. The mesmerizing beautiful meadows at Ali Bugyal spread in every direction. The sight of this meadows gives you a rewarding feeling after all that exhausting trek. The sight is no less than what you get at a windows XP wallpaper. Further, move ahead to Bedni Bugyal in mildly descending trail which then turns into a gentle trail of around one hour which ends at another beautiful campsite Bedni Bugyal.

Day 4: Trekking to Patar Nachauni from Bedni Bugyal

Today, the trek will be a straight trail all the way to the meadows of Ghora Lotani, the mules are not taken further. Ghora Lotani makes an excellent campsite not only in terms of beauty but also slows down your altitude gain to a halt. Also, a clear stream on the side, keeps it one point ahead as a campsite. But we will be choosing Patar Nachauni as our campsite for the day. The trail from here is a climb to Kalu Vinayak. Patar nuchani is where you get your first sight the snow.

Day 5: Trekking to Bhagwabasa via Kalu Vinayak from Patar Nachauni

Today we carry atleast 2 litres of water along, climb since there will be water sources on the way and the day is a bit challenging as compared to previous days, the approach is laborious, but not difficult. The trek will be a high elevated 1.5 hrs climb to Kalu Vinayak resulting in a rapid altitude gain. This section need to be negotiated slowly. Take small breaks while climbing up the steep path. These breaks are important as going up very fast could mean inviting AMS. In these breaks take rest while taking support of your walking stick as sitting down causes your muscles to relax and makes it difficult to get back on track. This is a crucial height where most trekkers feel the thinness in the air. You get breathless very soon and sometimes even feel dizzy. Trekkers give their best today but it becomes a problem later when the altitude gain for Roopkund starts. Kalu Vinayak, the black Ganesha figure in a stone temple just as you finish the climb from Patar Nachauni. The trail further from Kalu Vinayak to Bhagwabasa is a simple 2 kms gradual decent. Snow patches will start accompanying you on trail from now onwards. Bhagwabasa is a place something small than a village. The people here also provide beds for the night stay and even also fooding is available, at an additional cost.

Day 6: Trekking to Roopkund and Back to Patar Nachauni

This is the day we will reach Roopkund Lake and return back to Patar Nachauni. We will start our trek in the early morning. One need to climb while the snow is still hard. There’s plenty of snow even in the middle of summer. In the daytime, the snow becomes soft and your feet start sinking in, which needs to avoid this. Our initial walk includes a 5 kms gradually ascending walk which will leads us to the Roopkund lake which takes about 2½ hrs to climb up to Roopkund. Take small breaks while climbing up the steep path. These breaks are important as going up very fast could mean inviting AMS. In these breaks take rest while taking suppport of your walking stick as sitting down causes your muscles to relax and makes it difficult to get back on track. The last stretch of climbing in the snowy requires support of all four limbs and is exhausting but is not long. Depending on the snow depositions, the team may be required to rope up. After reaching the Roopkund, enjoy the breathtaking sight of the lake and its surroundings. After spending some time here, we will descend without delay as the weather at these high altitudes changes suddenly. It can get windy up here and possibility of sudden rain cannot be ruled out. We also might attempt Junargali if the weather permits, as it doesn’t take much time. The Roopkund lake is a mysterious lake. The human bones spread all over the area are what accounts for its mysteriousness. It has been a surprising element to the scientist and historians. After the summit to the lake or further up to Junargali, trekkers often find getting down from Roopkund difficult. Reach Bhagwabasa in around 3 hours. And from here a 5km descend from Bhagwabhasa to Pathar Nachauni which you will cover in 3 hours. You can camp at Pathar Nachauni for the night.

Day 7: Last Day Trek to Wan via Bedni Bugyal.

Today retrace your path all the way back to Wan, at the last day of this exhausting yet exciting trek. On the way back, you get astounding views of Mt Trishul on a clear day

Day 8: Drive back to Kathgodam, Recollecting Memories.

It’s time to bid farewell to Wan and its mountains. Today, we board a vehicle that drives us to Kathgodam through Kausani and Ranikhet. Depart from Wan after an early breakfast.
