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. 

Accommodation: Hotel
Meals: All Meals

Day 2From Joshimath To Gorson's Bugiyal , Via - Auli

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Today after breakfast, we have a small briefing on the trek and most importantly the team introduction. After we wrap up formalities quickly, we get ready for the trek. Our loads are packed and there we are, ready to hit the trail.

We start the day with a picturesque drive to Auli, a winter ski destination. It takes around 30 - 40 minutes for us to reach Auli from where our trek begins.

Our trek trail is an easy walk for today. We initially trek easy through the oak forest and reach an interesting temple on the way - The Padiyar temple. After offering prayers, we start again and hit the meadows. Gentle walk on it with occasional humps bring us to our destination for the day. If the weather is clear, the campsite already starts to play its magic on you.

Spend the rest of the day exploring the place, as 2 days are very less to explore the Gorsons.

Day 4From Tali Top To Khullara, Via - Tali Lake

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Keep your cameras ready !! Its a beautiful trek today. Walk slow, as the views keep changing and attracting you. Through the winding and humps of the meadow, we gradually start to climb up to a well laid trek trail. After climbing up to a cliff, the trail descends down sharply to a deep forest. 

Little further and there we are, a beautiful lake reflecting the grand peak of Dunagiri.. This is the Tali Lake. Spend some good time here to grasp the beauty. You may chose to munch some food.

A trek through the woods and meadow for another hour brings you to Khullara, a flat meadow offering grand views of Dunagiri, Nandaghunti, Hathi Ghodi, Rishikot, etc.

After lunch, we take a short hike to Pangarchula base camp.
