The Pangarchulla Peak Trek- A thrilling summit


The  Pangarchulla  trek offers a strenuous and exciting peak climb which is exactly what you are looking for. The summit of Pangarchulla summit trek is at an altitude of 15,069 meters.  First, Pangarchu is a five-day walk (7 days including travel days from Rishikesh). The walk starts from Auli, a village in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand near Joshimath. in the Nanda Devi National Park where it is located. 


Note: We will stay on the original route of Pangarchulla which starts from Auli. We explored the  Pangarchulla trek in 2015-16 using this traditional route. This trail is particularly dear to us and India Hikes co-founder Sandhya UC prefers it.  I think you should only walk from here, not from Dhak, says the woman.  Great Mountains, Mt. Dronagiri, and Mt. As you travel from Auli to Gorson Bugyal and then to Tali, Nanda Devi are in front of you. As the walk progresses, the mountain scenery is more impressive as you leave Auli. 

Nanda Devi mountain is not visible if you start from the Dhak side till the 

the day of the trek when you start descending from Auli. You also leave mountains if you travel with your back to them. Therefore, starting from Dhaka, you must turn around and end your journey to see the  Gorson Bugyal Hills.

 best time to trek Pangarchulla peak

 There is only one month in a year when the Pangarchulla Peak trek is accessible and that is April. This includes the spring season. The remaining months of the year are closed for migration. There is too much snow on the route before April to make the summit possible. After April, the snow melts, making climbing to the summit dangerous due to the exposed rocks. These stones are large and have many gaps between them, making it difficult for all hikers to move between them. It is quite dangerous and ends quickly. 


 How difficult is the Pangarchulla Trek? 


 Pangarchulla Trek falls under the ‘Difficult’ trek category. Compared to other climbs like Kedarkantha, Brahmatal, or Chopta-Chandrashila trek, the 15,000 feet Pangarchulla peak is much more challenging terrain. However, you shouldn’t let that stop you. The exciting challenges of the Pangarchulla Trek are followed by wonderful surprises. However, this walk is not at all recommended for beginners. 


 Climbing to the top is the hardest part of the journey. Under heavy snow, the longest and most difficult approach carries several huge boulders. The distances between these rocks are large, which can be dangerous when hiking. But to avoid problems and ensure your safety, we have trained guides to guide you in the right direction. 

 All in all, although the journey to Pangarchulla is exciting and difficult, you should be careful before starting this quest. You must be in good physical shape to easily complete this amazing walk.
