About the Destination: Set at an altitude of 5,490 meters, Auden's Col is one of the high altitude mountain passes in the Garhwal Himalayas that connects the Rudragaira valley and Bhilangana valley. Forming a bridge between the north-west ridge of Gangotri-III and Jogin-I, it reaches an altitude of 5,390m. The trek to Auden's Col is one of the toughest treks in the Garhwal Himalayan region and hence it has been least explored by normal trekkers; a dream for all the ardent trekkers.
The trail passes through the thick alpine forests, meadows dotted with varied species of flowers, gushing streams and cuts through numerous villages. Even being a strenuous trail, the journey is treated with the majestic view of the hulking high peaks like the Rudragaira, Jogin, Bhagirathi and Kedar Dome.
