Panwali Kantha Trek Overview

About the Destination:

The Panwali kantha trek route is a mesmerising one that is replete with different beauties in different seasons. It is positioned at a height of 11,500 feet (3500 meters) and offers the rarest views of the entire range of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri peaks. During the Panwali Kantha trek, you pass through Panwali Kantha’s seven bugyals (meadows) and if you are blessed, you may catch sightings of the blue mountain goats (bharal), Himalayan bear, musk deer, and Ghoral too.

Right from the velvety green meadows in summers to the gently-sloped snow-laden bugyals in winters, this trek seems like a painted landscape. You can reach this trekking spot from Sonprayag or Ghuttu from Rishikesh, visit the stunning  Buransh Forest and continue your journey up to Gourmand.
