Uttarakhand is imbued with nature’s aura that offers a landscape dotted with serene rivers, groovy lakes and exceeding peaks.

It's a long day today as we are climbing on steep slopes from the west ridge of the mountain and then after reaching the summit, we return back to the basecamp and post lunch we move to Hargaon campsite. We will start early in the morning post breakfast and try to reach the top of the ridge by noon. As we move forward slowly dense forest trails surrounding by Pine trees start to disappear slowly. It's a rigorous and tiring uphill climb of over 2 hours but the scenic views around you will keep your adrenaline rush high just to know how's the view from the top. At some point of this walk you will be awestruck by the 360-degree view and once everyone reaches the top, believe us it's a win-win situation for everyone. Panoramic views of mighty Himalayas range mixed with dark blue and white clouds scattered like a painting sketched by nature just for you. After spending some time on the top we head back to our campsite, have lunch at a mid point of the downwards journey from the basecamp and head towards Hargaon. Stay for the night in tents.
