sometimes its the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination

We will start our day from Haridwar driving towards Sangam Chatti, located near Gangotri. It is the blend of the Varna and Assi Ganga rivers. The journey to Sangam Chatti will be of around 7-8 hours and reaching Sangam Chatti will be all for day 1.  Overnight stay will be at camps.

So, today we will start our adventurous trek crossing the rivers and wooden bridges. The climbs are zigzag, the uphill and downhill trail soon enters the shade of the Rhododendron trees. As you trek further the Dundukola and Agora villages come into view. The trail perceptibly becomes cleaner once we leave the village with the entire village trash behind. The snow-clad mountains and river flowing is a treat for eyes.Crossing of the river over stones gets you to Bherva. We will enjoy the night stay at the camps.

Waking up to a bright new morning on the mountains will be the best feeling you could ever experience. After having some enticing breakfast we will start trekking towards Dodital and it is 16 kilometers long stretch, and it will take you up to 7 hours to reach Dodital in winters due to snow. The trail is wide and well laid out and mostly under the shade of Oak trees. Overnight stay at camps.

Today, we are going to explore the splendid beauty of the mighty peaks and lush green valleys and it would take you up to 5-6 hours to reach Dwara pass. The trek takes you through dense forest and opens meadows and eventually to the beautiful Dwara Pass Top at 4150 Meters offers mesmerizing views of Dhauladhar and Greater Himalayan Ranges. Views of Bandarpoonch and the surrounding mountains from Dwara top are simply breathtaking. Returning back to Dodital we will rest for a while and enjoy the sunset. Overnight stay will be at camps.

Post breakfast we will trek back to Bherva and it will take you up to 5 hours to reach the campsite. Trekking back towards Bherva we capture all the beauty we can and enjoy the moments that we are going to cherish for life. Overnight stay will be at camps

Today is the last day of our adventurous journey, and we will be heading back to our homes but with a bunch of good friends and lots of fun memories.
