    Kalindikhal trekking expedition starts from Gangotri banked beside the Ganga waters. After seeking the Gangotri goddess’s blessing start off on your journey to Gaumukh, the birth point of the holy Ganges River. Get enchanted by the grasslands at Tapovan and mesmerized by several rivulets and peaks of Shivling, Bhagirathi and Meru.

    From camping beside the Vasuki Tal, to breathtaking sceneries that include moraine, glaciers and majestic peaks, this tour has it all. After several briefing sessions on the safety measures to be taken on this trek, prepare to encounter the many splendours of nature.

    About the Destination: 

    Perched at a mind-numbing altitude of over 6,000 meters, Kalindi Khal is one of the most offbeat and challenging trekking destinations in India. Bursting will thrill and adventure, the Kalindi Khal trek borders on a proper expedition, and consequently demands some prior knowledge of technical and mountaineering skills. The initial leg of the trek traces the Gaumukh trail, and passes Chirbasa, Bhojbasa, Gaumukh, Nandanvan, Vasuki Tal, Mana and Badrinath. The trek begins from Gangotri, and exposes you to mind boggling views of the majestic Bhagirathi peaks, and the lofty mount Shivling, which can be seen rising from base to summit in stark entirety!

    From Gaumukh, the trek takes place entirely on a stunning glacier which is carpeted with lots of crevasses! These glaciers keep shifting and breaking on and off, which adds to the challenging level of the trek. Since the glaciers keep breaking, the route is not well defined, and needs to be carefully traversed. The trail is treacherous, and if one doesn’t have a decent sense of direction, it is easy to get lost. To get to Vasukital, you must traverse an extremely narrow ridge with steep inclines. The thrill of climbing a petrifying ice wall with a 60 degree incline awaits you, which descends to glaciers laden with crevasses on the other end!

    Vasuki Tal, cradled atop 4,900 m is the origin of the Vasuki Ganga that eventually meets Mandakini. The trek to the Kalindi Summit winds through Kalindi Pass, which is quite daunting and equally perilous. It demands exhaustive technicalities on a steep glacier, but the view from the top overshadows all exhaustion! The trek ends at the quaint little village of Mana, which is also the last village of India, beyond which lies the Chinese frontier! There are few other treks that have the privilege of being fenced by such beautiful Himalayan wonders. If you’re looking for some real Himalayan adventure, count on the Kalindi Khal trek to satiate your craving.
