+ Travel Description

Exploring on the steps of Sir Frank Smythe, the Bhyunder Khal trek is a great trek to be explored by any Himalayan High Seekers. Most of this trek is through glacial moraines crossing the high altitude pass of Bhyunder Khal.

The trek starts with a drive to Govind Ghat and then following the trails of the more popular Valley of Flowers. The trail climbs up steadily and takes you to the remote valley of the Tipra Bamak. The Bhyunder Khal trek gets serious after this and requires negotiating the moraines of the Gauri glacier, Rataban Glacier and Tipra Glacier.  The climb to the pass is steep and treacherous. The top of the Bhyunder Khal offers close and glorious view of Neelkanth, Hathi, Nilgiri and Rataban peaks. After crossing the pass, we land on to the other side of the Rataban Glacier continuing over the moraines. The trek route take a right turn diverging from the Gupt Khal trek route and goes down straight to exit in the village of Ghamsali.

Route Details: Joshimath -- Govind Ghat -- Ghangharia -- Tipra -- Bhyunder Ice Fall -- Bhyunder Khal Base -- Bhyunder Khal -- Rataban Glacier Camp -- Eri Udiar -- Ghamsali -- Joshimath

+ Why Is This Special
  • The aweinspiring peaks of Nar, Neelkanth, Hathi, Ghodi, Rataban
  • The village of Ghamsali. One of the most remote village on the borders of Uttrakhand and Tibet. The very few of the Rongpa tribes live there.
  • Retracing history in Frank Smythe's path who first explored the Valley Of Flowers and named it so. His explorations in the mountains of Garhwal are worth a read
  • Bhyunder Khaal is not a pass to be crossed by the weak hearted. For those who are motivated by the remoteness of the Himalayas and are ready to accept the challenges, this region can offer them a good exploration thrill.
  • Moraine walks beneath some of the beautiful peaks of Garhwal and a challenging trek to cool your challenge seeking nerves.
