Route 18 daagse rondreis Nanda Devi & Milam Glacier

The little known region of Kumaon, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, is arguably the centerpiece of the Indian Himalaya, dominated by the awe inspiring Nanda Devi and Nanda Devi East. The region is often overlooked by trekkers, yet it offers wild unspoiled landscapes and wonderful trekking. Located close to the border of western Nepal and Tibet, we follow an ancient trade route to Tibet and explore a remote corner of Kumaon. Starting in the village of Munsiyari, we trek through small settlements and pristine forests as we follow the Gori Ganga River to the historic settlement of Milam, which before 1962 was a thriving village trading with Tibet. We trek up onto the rocky moraine of the Milam Glacier, with impressive views of Tirsuli and Hardeol and a foray to the Pachu Glacier and Nanda Devi East Base Camp reveals a delightful series of alpine meadows and panoramic views of peaks and ridges that virtually enclose the magnificent mountains with brilliant close up views of Nanda Devi and Nanda Devi East.
