Introduction To The Baghini / Bagini Glacier Trek
- Popular Names: Baghini Glacier Bagini Glacier
Rupin Pass Trek
The Baghini Glacier Trek

Trek through one of the most beautiful valleys in the Himalayas. With great views of Mt. Dunagiri 7066m, a peak that looks like a crown of a great king, close view of Rishi Pahad, the snout of Rishi Ganga to the base camp of the killer mountain - Changa Banga 6864m makes this trek a unique experience.

The sight of the Bagini Glacier will definitely itch your curiosity to a level you had never known before. Its a rare view of a Himalayan glacier with such a simple hike, and gets your understanding of a Himalayan river system very clear.

The associated history of the Dronagiri village with Ramayana is another interesting thing in this trek. Its said that Shri Hanumaji had lifted up the hill of Dronagiri village when he had been asked to collect 'Sanjeevani Booti' for Lord Laxmana, to bring him to life. As a result of which, during festivals in the village, when the villagers enact Ramayana, they act only till that scene... The hospitality of the Rongpa people, witnessing local life, their hardships and farming are an added icing to an already wonderful trek.

Come, trek with us to experience both the Beauty and Roughness of Himalayan Roughness..
