    The thick Orange vegetation will be an unavoidable sight during the day.

    At the midpoint to Phurkia, the tree line finishes and then you can experience the valley dominated by grass and small shrubs.

    Phurkia is great point to acclimatize and then get ready to engage in the trekking to the Zero Point.

    Phurkia to Zero Point trek will have steep climbs. On the way, the probability to spot Himalayan Monal is high.

    The majority of the valley is dominated by yellow grass which in turn gives away the valley an impression of yellow.

    Multiple small streams are seen on the way that you would be crossing.

    As you start approaching the zero point, the experience changes all together.

    This trek showers upon you abundant chances to have the enticing views of the majestic Himalayan peaks.

    Half a kilometer before zero point is a beautiful temple and home of Pindari Baba.

    He stays alone in his home for most of the time in the year and has been living there for last 22 years doing Sadhna. Meet him during the trek that would add more colour to your expeditions.

    Head towards Zero point after meeting him. Once you reach the point, you would not be able to defy the strikingly beautiful views of the Pindari glacier lying in between two majestic Himalayan peaks.

    Set up your camps and relax. Have dinner later and retire for the night.
