Khalindi Pass Expedition: 5 days and 99 Kms of rigorous trekking!

The high altitude trekking route from Gangotri – Badrinath, via Kalindikhal is
generally known is Kalindikhal Pass Trek. It is more adventurous with requirement of some fundamental knowledge of mountaineering.

The trekking starts from Gangotri eastward, via Gomukh, Tapovan, Nandanvan, Vasuki Tal, Kalindikhal to Gashtoli and then to Badrinath Here is a trek that takes you half way round Garhwal from the Bhagirathi Valley to the Alaknanda Valley.

A trip only for those who have done high altitude treks before; its very mention gives a thrill to even the most seasoned of climbers.

The trek starts from Gangotri and takes you through Nandanvan, the base of the Bhagirathi peaks, a place that offers an unparallel view of the Shivling peak. The trail moves on to Vasuki Tal (4900 M). With towering peaks all around the lake,
its surface shimmers like a pearl and is the source of the Vasuki Ganga that
drains into the Mandakini. We proceed to cross the Kalindikhal pass (5968 M), a
tough climb from where you feel that there is little else left to be see. It is as if
you are a part of this majestic setting of snow peaks. The trail then descends to
Arwa Tal and to Mana the last village on the Chinese frontier. The trek fittingly
ends at Badrinath with a visit to the holy temple.
