Adventure and Sports in Uttarakhand


Uttarakhand being a land of hills, provides trekking facilities. India's highest peaks are here. Each trek passes through friendly villages, forests, waterfalls, meadows and lovely glittering mountain panoramas. The only thing that varies on different treks will be the scenery and magnitude of the mountain ranges.


Mountaineering in Uttarakhand is concentrated mainly in two areas -- around the Gangotri Glacier and the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. There are numerous peaks of varying heights and difficulty level, between 6500-7000 mt. The highest peak is Nanda Devi, 7601 mt and two more Kamet and Abhigaman are a little over 7000 mt. The approach march, in most cases, is not more than 3-4 days and therefore many available peaks can be attempted within a period of 4-5 weeks from Delhi. The approach march to the Nanda Devi sanctuary could take a week and is an expedition in itself.
