Explore about Nanda Devi Peak

The Nanda Devi peak in the Garhwal Himalayas, which are well known for their beauty, is one such breathtaking peak. The national park, which was founded in 1982 and is now a World Heritage site, is situated all around the top of the Nanda Devi. The Valley of Flowers National Park and the park Sanctuary, which is a ring of mountain peaks with elevations ranging from 6000 to 7500 metres, make up the park. Over 3,500 metres above sea level, the park’s whole area, is located. Although this Sanctuary trip is still a highly regarded walk, the park itself is now inaccessible to the public owing to ecological damage and environmental concerns.

The Nanda Devi Sanctuary’s perimeter is bordered by valleys and meadows straight out of a fantasy. Mountaineers have an unrivalled perspective of the Kuari Pass as well as the neighbouring peaks Dunagiri and Kamet when climbing up Nanda Devi. There are two sections to the Sanctuary:

Inner Sanctuary: The Nanda Devi and two glaciers next to the peak—the Rishi Glacier in the north and the Rishi Glacier in the south—cover about two-thirds of the area in the east. In 1934, Eric Shipton and H.W. Tilman are said to have been the first two trekkers to successfully penetrate the Inner Sanctuary.

Outer Sanctuary: The Inner Sanctuary is separated from the Outer Sanctuary by ridges, which accounts for roughly a third of the total Sanctuary area in the west. In actuality, only the Rishi Ganga can get through this ridge wall, which is 6000 metres high. It’s thought that T.G. The first person to successfully travel through the Outer Sanctuary was Longstaff, who in 1907 ascended Trisul I (the glacier located in the south).

Joshimath is the starting point for one of the greatest Nanda Devi trekking routes. To reach Lata Village and the Nanda-Devi temple, where this journey truly begins, hikers use the road. Lata Kharak is a high plateau that requires a four-hour hike to reach, but the landscape makes the effort worthwhile. The Dharansi Pass is the next stop, and the path provides a good view of peaks covered in snow, such the Dronagiri. The Malthuni-Betratholi ridges, which create a beautiful route to Rani Kholi and Donidar, are simpler to approach from this pass. The Hitoli camp site, accessible from Jhandi Dhar through a magnificent route that travels through groves of rhododendron and fir trees, is the next destination after returning to the Dharansi Pass. Trekkers must go via the hamlet of Tolma before continuing on by car to Joshimath. It takes 10 days to finish this hike in a national park.

Nanda Devi Base Camp (7816 metres), the second-highest summit, is found in India’s Uttarakhand Himalayas. Its source is the little Kumaun Garhwal city of Munsiyari. This mountain is very beautiful and important to the people. On the peak’s eastern flank lie Pachu Glacier and Nanda Devi Base Camp. To reach the Nanda Devi Base Camp, one can travel along the trade route that previously carried a civilised people.

Nanda Devi Peak has two summits: Nanda Devi East (7,434 m) and Nanda Devi West (Nanda Devi) (7,816 m). The Nanda Devi East Base Camp Trek, we have observed and learned, is the best way to experience these spectacular peaks up close.
