Uttarkashi

Beauty Of Himalayan Treks, A large part of Uttaranchal is situated below the range of Himalayas in the northern part of India with dense forests, rivers, peaks, mountains that enhances its beauty. Uttaranchal is a major tourist attraction. It is a perfect place to discover the nature at its best and explore it too. When one walks through the un-explored settings and observes the nature around, its the part of Uttarakhand left behind. Seku village (5500 ft / 1700 mts), 2 hrs walk from Kuflon, an alternate trek route to Dodital, is one of the very few villages in the region to have been unscathed by the regular visits from the outsiders. Mainly an agro-dependent economy, it has started moving towards greener pastures. The settings of the village offer a mix of the past and the encroaching modern influence. A village named Kuflon, is a well known eco-Friendly nature camp that is about 12 kms from Uttarkashi. It is located about 2 kms from a place called Sangamchatti at an altitude of 5000 ft. Its the part of Uttarakhand. Kuflon must be explored by outdoor activities of camping, bird watching, trout angling that gives a unique experience of thrill and adventure. The narrow stream called Assi Ganga flows through the hills that abounds in Brown trout and is favourable for the adventurous sports for tourists visiting Kuflon. The best season to visit this place is from September till July ending. This is the time for nature sports and time to enjoy incomparable hospitability from the villagers.

We had a team match amongst the trek group. We would race to spots like Badrinath and Kedarnath. The team reaching late will compensate by doing some tasks. It was fun and exciting. Would definitely recommend it to friends.
We recently booked the Gaumukh to Tapovan trek with Thrillophilia and I must say, it was one of the best decisions that we made. All the arrangements were flawlessly made and the trek guide was super friendly. We had ultimate fun with this adventure trip. Kudos to the team for their excellent involvement in ensuring all the arrangements are done with precision.
