+ Travel Description

Kagbhushandi tal trek is one picturesque trek near to Joshimath in Uttrakhand. Following up the same route as that of the more popular Valley Of Flowers Trek, this trek leaves behind the village of Bhyunder and then enters into the foreground of the Hathi Parvat.

A serene trail gets difficult at times in form of two passes standing as a barrier - the Kankul Pass and the Barmei Pass. In between these tow barriers lies the vista of the pristine lake of Kagbhushandi

As wisely said by someone, you don't get the view if you don't take the pain. The views offered by this trek are jawdropping, inspiring to praise the might of the himalayas to the next level. The route is also considered to be pious by the Hindu believes

If you are a offbeat trekker, and like the remoteness of the Himalayas, keen to challenge yourself, this trek is for you.

Route Details: Joshimath -- Govind Ghat -- Bhyunder -- Samertoli -- Dang Kharak -- Raj Kharak -- Kankul Pass -- Kagbhushandi Tal -- Barmei Pass -- Farsuwan Pass -- Jabar Kharak -- Paika -- Joshimath

Day 1From Rishikesh To Joshimath, Via - Karn Prayag, Chamoli

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day: Journey from Haridwar to Joshimath is a long one, but definitely not a boring one. As you swirl up, you come across the Prayags ( confluence of rivers) of Uttrakhand, coming down from the Himalayan Glaciers on the higher reaches of the Himalayan state. These rivers unite to form the mighty Ganga which flows down Haridwar to rest for India. Ganga is known as the lifeline of India, and Uttrakhand - The Dev Bhoomi ( God's Land) The streets are colorful too !! Travelling in mountain roads for 280 KMS can be really tiring. So take a good sleep in your hotel tonight.
