    Amazing trekking at a remarkable height of 4700 meters. The views from the summit point of Pangarchulla can not be explained in few words. Ascending on the hills was somehow difficult but descending was quite easier. Pangarchulla Peak terrain is entirely covered with snow but fewer grounds are perfect for fixing tents.

    The trek was not too strenuous, suitable for slightly older people like me. Felt a little stiff every now and then, but the trek leader was very cooperative and would slow down to give me a few minutes of rest. Returned home safe and sound.

    It was truly an amazing experience and we fell in love with this beautiful place. This trip offered enough challenge and loads of photos opportunity with panoramic views. The pangatchulla peak is a beautiful climbing possibility near the well known kuari pass area. Just below the pass the trek leads pass through a large meadows, offering spectacular views of Himalaya. We enjoyed the panoramic views of great Himalaya peaks. On the way we found lush green meadows, water fall, snow capped mountain where we played with snow and had fun with friends and much more. After reaching summit, to see the sunrise over the Himalaya was just divine. The walk up to the summit would take a couple of hours. The peak is about 4775m and can have lots of snow till as late as May. The best snow climbing experience can be had in the month of April and May. Everything was so refreshing and rejoice.
