Panchchuli Glacier Trekking in Kumaon, Uttaranchal

On the final lap at village Duktu/Dantu one gets the majestic spectacle of Panchachuli that derives its name from the five peaks, named after the legendary Pandavas. The 5 kms length and width of glaciers project out from this range of hill. Atrek of about 4 kms from village Duktu/Dantu leads to the base of the glacier.

The glacier is seen from Duktu/Dantu villages as well as from the starting point of Yuli river situated 4 kms away in the base of Panchachuli. The five peaks of Panchachuli create the unforgettable specter of Him Khand, Yuli river skirted by the jungle of Devdaar and Bhoj Patra trees and vast meadows.

Nestling snugly in the lap of the snow capped peaks of Panchachuli, the Darma valley in Pithoragarh district is endowed with abundant scenic grandeur. One hundred and thirty four kilometers from Pithoragarh and 35 kilometers from Dharchula is the last bus terminal Sobla. From sobla to Panchachuli Glacier is a 40-kilometer trek. The route to the glacier abounds in exotic scenery, snowcapped mountains, gushing streams, Alpine meadows and a rich variety of flora & fauna. And from the glacier one can see the panchachuli peaks in their towering glory.
