Garhwal & Kumaon TrekkersThe Garhwal and Kumaon regions, collectively known as Uttarkhand, are one the most venerated pilgrimage destinations of India.

The Garhwal Himalayas seems to embody a mystical truth beyond the common precepts of man, a quality that has attracted sages and pilgrims alike for countless centuries. The peaks of Garhwal have not only aroused a sense of awe and eternity but also


inspired great poetry. In Garhwal, great peaks like Kamet, Trishul and Nanda Devi rise majestically, separated by some of the mightiest rivers of northern India. The crowning glory of Garhwal is the beautiful Nanda Devi, whose twin summits tower over 26,600 ft above sea level.
