Detail itinenary

Arrive late in the afternoon & drive initially along the Ganga & then Alaknanda. Enroute you can see the holy conference of Alaknanda & Bhagirathi Rivers at Devprayag. Check into the camp. This is a beautifully situated camp with deluxe tents, each having cots and attached toilets/showers. The camp is set on the banks of river Alaknanda and has open views of a few villages set scenically in the nearby mountains. Later in the evening go for an evening walk by the riverside. Enjoy your freshly prepared dinner and crash into your tents. Overnight at Jayalgarh.

In the morning we will again continue the beautiful drive along river Alaknanda & Mandakini to reach to Sari village, the starting point of our trek. En-route you will be driving through the towns of Srinagar and Rudraprayag. Also witness the holy conference of Alaknanda and Madakini at Rudraprayag. From Sari we begin the trek to Deoriatal, a high altitude lake. Spend a few hours by this magnificent lake, watching the Chaukhamba peak in its still waters. Relish a picnic lunch by the lake side. We will now hike back to the road head at Sari village. Drive to the lodge at Kund. If time permits one has option to visit Omkareshwar temple which is winter seat of Lord Kedarnath. Overnight at Kund.

Today we will start early and drive to Chopta. From the road, head climbs up the world-famous meadows of Chopta. It will take about a couple of hours to reach the Tungnath temple. After a brief rest carry on and climb to reach the summit of Chandrashila peak at about 4000m. From the summit, you can see big Himalayan peaks (Nanda Devi, Trishul, Chaukhamba, and many more) and surrounding valleys in all directions. Relish a picnic lunch at the top Chandrashila. After the summit, we start descending to the base at Chopta and from there get onto your vehicles and drive down to Kund where a refreshing shower and hot dinner awaits you. Have dinner and retire to your room. Overnight at Kund.

After an early breakfast, drive for about 4 hrs to reach Auli, India’s premier skiing destination. In summers also it’s a great location with very close views of the most revered and 2’nd highest mountain in India, Nanda Devi Peak. Check-in, followed by lunch. Rest for some time and then drive to Auli top (one can take the cable car to reach the top). We start hiking and cross the forest over Auli and get on towards the Gurson meadows. This is a fabulous place to just sit and watch the big mountains. The highlight of today’s walk has to be the up-close & very personal views of Nanda Devi & Doonagiri peaks that one gets along the trail. We spend some time in this serene setting and return to the lodge towards late evening. On arrival relax with a hot cup of masala tea and a bowl of hot pakoras. Overnight at Auli.

Post breakfast, be driven to Dhak/Tugasi, the starting point of your trek which is marked with a few shops. From Dhak/Tugasi we start trekking towards Gulling. The trek starts through village fields on a prominent trail & goes past few Himalayan villages, letting you capture some up-close views of day to day life of the inhabitants. The trail winds up on top of the villages & sets you into the wilderness of the forest, finally taking you to the camp at Gulling. The day ends around the bonfire. Overnight at Gulling.

After breakfast, we set on the trail that traverses gradually from Gulling to Dhak/Tugasi. On your way back you will witness the last of the Himalayan panorama of underlying valleys, gigantic Himalayas & beautiful villages. From Dhak, we drive about 90 mins to reach Lata. From here we will walk towards Lata Village and visit Nanda Devi Temple which is about half an hour walk from the road head. We get to see people in traditional dresses moving around, old houses, and also get a chance to interact with locals. If lucky, we will have a tea in one of the local houses. Later drive back to Auli & en-route visit hot spring Tapovan. Overnight at Auli.

After an early breakfast, we drive down to Srinagar, the starting point of rafting. This rafting stretch is an ideal for the first timers & experience too. Along with the rafting, you will also enjoy cliff jumping, body surfing & swimming under the supervision of our guides. The rafting ends at the camp Jayalgarh. Once in the camp, relax the tired muscles by relaxing around a crackling bonfire. Overnight at Jayalgarh.

After a leisurely breakfast, you will get into the vehicles and drive to Shivpuri, the starting point of rafting. The excitement continues with rafting on the holy Ganga. Today you get to raft on rapids naming Roller coaster, Golf course, Double trouble, and many more on the river Ganga. This is going to be a truly memorable experience, enjoying every second of it. Change into fresh clothes (changing tents will be put up) and continue with your onwards journey. The trip ends here..
