Sunanda Devi or Nandadevi East Base Camp trek with Milam glacier is one of the best available treks in the Kumaun Himalayas of Uttrakhand. The starting point of the trek - Munsiyari itself is a very beautiful hamlet in the lap of the Himalayan peaks.

The 5 peaks of Panchachuli, twin peaks of Nandadevi, Trishuli, Hardeol, Nandakot, and glimpses other peaks including those of the neighboring Nepal makes this trek a wonderful and picturesque journey.

Milam glacier is the source of the river Gori Ganga and is one of the biggest glaciers of the region. The glacier is fed by 7 other glaciers namely Timphu glacier, Sakram glacier, West Bamchu glacier, Mangraon glacier,  Surajkund glacier, Ikualari glacier, Bilanlari glacier.

The village of Milam, Lilam, Martoli, Pachu and other villages on the route gives lot of insights into the local life and culture. It is perhaps the best way to explore the Kumaon Himalayas and also understand the Himalayan geography
