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.
