The Pindari Glacier Trek is a popular trekking route in the Bageshwar district of Uttarakhand, India. The trek takes you to the base of the Pindari Glacier, which is one of the smallest glaciers in the Kumaon Himalayas. The trek begins in the village of Loharkhet and takes you through lush green forests, terraced fields, and traditional villages. As you gain altitude, the landscape changes to that of alpine meadows and rocky terrain. The trek passes through the villages of Dwali, Phurkia, and Khati, where you can see traditional Kumaoni architecture and culture. The final stretch of the trek takes you to the base of the Pindari Glacier, which is located at an altitude of about 12,500 feet. The glacier is about 3 km long and offers a spectacular view of the surrounding peaks, including Nanda Kot and Nanda Devi. The trek ends in the village of Khati. The total distance of the trek is around 72 km, and it typically takes 7-8 days to complete. The best time to trek is from April to June and from September to November, when the weather is favorable and the trails are less crowded. It's important to note that this is a moderate level trek, which requires some basic level of fitness and prior trekking experience. Some part of the trail is rocky and steep and can be quite challenging. It's always recommended to hire a local guide, who would be well-versed with the trail and can help you navigate the trek safely.
