Nanda Devi Base Camp

Nanda Devi Base Camp

This is a trans-Himalayan trek in the heart of Kumaon Himalayas. Nanda Devi of course, needs no introduction. The second highest peak in the Indian Himalayas and touted by many as one of the most beautiful peaks in the world. The trek is through the Jauher valley the centre of ancient Indo Tibetan trade route. Once upon a time this was one of the most important commercial centre with a throbbing civilization influenced by the Tibetan culture in so many ways.
At 2290m Munsiyari is on the arterial water body of the Goriganga, which emerges from the Milam glacier system of the eastern flanks of the Nandadevi sanctuary, fed also by the Kalaband glacier and Panchchuli from the east. The Jauher valley is on the outer rim of the Nanda devi sanctuary. Apart from the spectacular views of the famous peaks such as the Nanda devi and Nanda kot, the trek is along the river Gori Ganga through ancient villages and rolling grassy meadows.

The Martoli village, one of the centres of the Jauher valley, represents the ruins of the history of the Indo – Tibetan trade. Once a big village, one can clearly see in the ruins stories of a mighty commercial centre Martoli was long time back in the heart of Himalayas.
